LEGO The Lord of the Rings
4 February 2013
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...
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.
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.
Excerpt: LEGO The Lord of the Rings is yet another awesome addition to the popular LEGO series of videogames.

Cons: Numerous unskippable cutscenes, Difficulty level that skews towards “unlosable”, Exterior environments are often bland and lifeless
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...
Excerpt: A famous saying suggests refraining from fixing things that aren't broken. Warner Bros. and TT Games got away with muttering that to themselves in the mirror for at least the first few years, but now it's time to move on.
Excerpt: The LEGO video games are a collection of titles that I never thought would be as fun or as popular as they ended up being. After the success of blending the charmingly cute building blocks with the Star Wars franchise, the series has represented Indiana Jones , Harry Potter , Pirates of the...
