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.
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?
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.

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...

Luckily, this isn't looking like George Lucas' Star Wars formula all over again – Jackson is keeping true to the tone of J.R.R. Tolkien's books, despite stretching the movies out across three new chapters, rather than the initial two.
