Review: Lego Lord of the Rings (PS3)
7 September 2013
Excerpt: Lego and Lord of the Rings are two things that you wouldn’t instantly match together when you think of what could be the latest entry into the Lego games franchise. With 3 films, which is over 10 hours of story to cover and 9 very central characters to show screen time along with incorporating all the charm, wit and humour that the Lego franchise is renowned for, this is without a doubt the biggest challenge of the Lego franchise to date.
Conclusion: LEGO Lord of the Rings is easily one of my favorite LEGO games. I’m not sure if it’s just the source material or the fact that the game is actually really fun and evolves the LEGO franchise in significant ways, but this is definitely worth playing for any fan of the previous LEGO games or Lord of the Rings films.
Conclusion: If you look at the LEGO games with disgust at how one company is trotting out kiddie game adaptations of movies with nigh-identical gameplay and a camera that’s barely improved in seven years, then LEGO Lord of the Rings isn’t for you. Truth be told, you’ve got a point. Fortunately TT Games are not content to rest on their laurels as they’ve managed to pack in an exciting, thrilling and funny adventure with lots to explore and hours of gameplay to make the whole package...
Excerpt: As I write this review I realize we are a week away from Thanksgiving. We are fully in the retail march towards Christmas. This is the time of the year where companies release some of their best video games. Warner Bros Interactive is no different. I am extremely excited to review Lego Lord of the Rings.
Excerpt: LEGO The Lord of the Rings is yet another awesome addition to the popular LEGO series of videogames. It’s a great way to experience the epic storyline of The Lord of the Rings, complete with the kind of addictive stud collecting fun and laugh out loud humour that has become synonymous with this excellent franchise.
Summary: A fantastic tribute to The Lord Of The Rings franchise and one of the best LEGO games to boot.
Pros: Top notch production that does LOTR justice throughout with great audio, voice-acting and a fantastic looking game-world., Feels more like an adventure game than previous LEGO iterations with RPG elements, enjoyable exploration in appealing LOTR world and exciting bouts of action., So much to do, unlock and collect that it will keep you busy for months. Seamless co-op play is excellent.
Cons: Questionable friendly A.I. Seeing your Fellowship fall off a bridge when they simply had to walk across it can be frustrating., Occasionally poor camera angles can lead to misjudged jumps while platforming.
Excerpt: The Lego video game series has yet to overstay its welcome despite eight consecutive years' worth of brick-building titles. One reason for its success is its take on popular licenses, from Star Wars and Batman to Harry Potter and Indiana Jones, but the true secret is how well the developer tailors each experience to fit the property.
