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.
lord of the reviews: part 1: the fellowship of the rating

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.
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.
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.
Summary: If you enjoy lego games or just like lord of the rings then this game is a must for your collection. It follows the movie storyline and is very funny at times and the puzzles are fun and keep you engaged in the game even after you finish the storyline. Great game to play casually or to kill time.
Summary: If you haven't ever played/purchased a Lego game I would highly recommend this one. The game play is funny and sticks to the story. Lots Lots Lots to explore and collect. Definitely lose track of time if you start this game up.
