LEGO The Lord Of The Rings Review

PlayDevil
25 February 2013
  • Summary: As you can see by this review I thoroughly enjoyed " LEGO: The Lord Of The Rings " which in my opinion must be considered as the best Lego game to date. I highly recommend the game to anyone looking for an enjoyable experience that is packed with charm, good presentation and solid if not spectacular gameplay which can be enjoyed both in single player or multiplayer.

Review: Lego Lord of the Rings stumbles on its journey to the PS Vita

GameZone
9 December 2012
  • Excerpt: When I reviewed Lego Lord of the Rings for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, I was in awe at how well Travellers Tales did with the package.  They managed to capture the epic feel of Peter Jackson's epic trilogy, while at the same time delivering the kind of humorous Lego-style approach that they've become known for over the years. But there's something weird about Lego developments – the handheld iterations of the series are always different from the console ones.

  • Excerpt: Lego Lord of the Rings represents the best of what’s become a somewhat routine format. There’s no question that Lego-series developer TT Games has nailed how to craft a world full of humor, collectibles, and things to smash: this journey into Middle-earth has all the fixings with a few minor improvements. But overall, this retelling of the movie trilogy (complete with dialogue soundclips) never quite excites.
  • Pros: + Bricky Middle-earth is a cool place to explore., + The most faithful videogame retelling of the movies yet, supported by film dialogue and music.
  • Cons: ? Still no online co-op, after all this time?

  • Excerpt: Yes, another LEGO game. Have TT Games run out of juice or is this Hobbit-sized adventure worth checking out?

  • Conclusion: LEGO Lord of the Rings is another triumphant addition to the series and uses a great open world structure, plus cleverly designed levels and abilities, to ensure you will have a plethora of tasks to see and do. With secrets hidden around every corner and stirring music to spur you on, what are you waiting for?

Review: Lego Lord of the Rings is precious stuff

GameZone
22 November 2012
  • Excerpt: When I first heard about Travellers Tales working on a Lego Lord of the Rings game, I was skeptical.  Not because of their work, as the team has always put their heart and soul into their Lego-based games, whether it was Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga or this summer's enjoyable Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes .

Expert Review

GameSpot
21 November 2012
  • Summary: Those who have never played one of the many Lego games developed by TT Games might find it difficult to believe that a beloved franchise such as The Lord of the Rings can benefit from a simplified narrative and family-friendly gameplay. The notion seems absurd, and yet past releases have capably proven that plastic blocks and theatrical blockbusters can make a great mix. That's particularly evident in the case of Lego The Lord of the Rings.
  • Pros: Tells the familiar story in a satisfying way, Lots of goodies to uncover, Exploration is encouraged and fun, Faithful to the spirit of the source material
  • Cons: Stages can get repetitive when played alone, Occasional bugs can sometimes annoy

Walking Into Mordor With A Smile

  • Conclusion: Concept: Apply the Lego formula to the film adaptations of J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasy epic Graphics: The non-Lego environments have a cool diorama feel, and the Lego blocks and characters look the same as ever Sound: Voices pulled directly from the film audio often have abrupt or tinny implementation Playability: Floaty jumps require practice to master, but otherwise the controls are simple and straightforward Entertainment: The humor and gameplay mix well with the...
