Summary: This game is AWESOME!!! The use of quotes and music from the movies makes you feel like you are really there. The aesthetics are beautiful and each location feels like its own area despite being only a few strides away. The game play is easy with a few challenges. The best part is: no time limits or permanent deaths! While you lose coins when you die, you can make up for it later while playing the free roam.
Summary: When I got the game, my son put it in and it downloaded. But when he tried to play it, it asked him to put in the original disk. I asked him if there was another disk, but it only came with one.

Summary: an amazing addition to the lego series of games. what really impressed me was the removal of the indistinguishable grunting and other noises that the mini figures usually made, that was replaced by voice acting from the original actors of the characters from the official movies. and also the graphics were quite good and the game play also included a new feature. when in freeplay mode you can select from a random team of unlocked characters.
Keeps all fun stuff and gets rid of stuff from other Lego games I didn't like.

Summary: It is a Lego game. If you have played one you know how all others are. With that said the LOTR game is one of the best Lego games I have played. I like on the HUB world there are things to actually do, unlike Lego Star Wars where the HUB world had nothing to do. I didn't care for the "battleground" levels in Legos Star Wars 3, and those were not in LOTR so that is a bonus as well. It was challenging and fun.
Summary: I originally played this game on the pc and really enjoyed it for being a Lego Game, which I rarely play because it feels like the same type of game just with different characters. This LoTR adaption is in full 3D and completely non-linear, feels almost like a RPG without the leveling up. When I tried it on the VITA, I was greatly disappointed. Why? It's because they removed HEAPS of things you can do.
Summary: I enjoyed the story, some of the voices stand out, I can tell when they switch from movie quotes to voice actors, specially gandalf, but besides that it is a great game. Very similar to the Harry Potter Lego games.
Summary: Shipped on time. Haven't personally played it yet but it has worked well for my sister so far. She loves it. One of the improvements she mentioned to me is the enormity of the game. In other games, there is usually a limit to where you can go but in this one it seems to be limitless. Or at least much bigger.
