    Lego The Lord of the Rings X360

    The best Lego game. But that's coming from a big Lord of the Rings fan. The Lego-ised Middle-Earth looks quite splendid, and best of all, you get to explore all of it (even though it's in shortened Lego form) something ... Read Full Review

    A great tribute to the great lore and story that is Lord of the Rings

    This Lego game gives you a tribute that is the Lord of The Rings, while actually having great gameplay and doing its own thing. The humor and the characters are still what Lord of The Rings is and has its own take on it.... Read Full Review

    Lots of Lego fun, great graphics. And dialogue!

    I've just finished the main story campaign and have started on some of the many, many side quests. This game is a step beyond previous entries in the Lego franchise because of the dialogue taken straight from the movies... Read Full Review

    Flawed but enjoyable

    Audio: Voice acting is really the recorded dialogue from the films cut into the game, Sometimes it's good and sometimes it's bad. Good sound track and solid yet repetitive sound effects. Visuals: Wide range of varie... Read Full Review

    Why am I stuck in this wall?

    This is an embarrassment to Peter Jackson. His magical film has been degraded to an awfully disappointing game. The level design is actually pretty good, with challenging puzzles requiring more than one character. It's t... Read Full Review

    It's an old formula that seems to work for the LEGO games, but it's getting a bit boring.

    The Good: It was interesting that they've made it open world. It does make the game feel a bit larger. Although it's not really completely open world. You are still kind of steered through the world via paths. There'... Read Full Review

    A must-play if you're a LotR fan

    LEGO Lord of the Rings is an enjoyable game for people of all ages, and truly captures the spirit of the movie trilogy. The voice acting and sounds come directly from the movies but there are references to the story from... Read Full Review

    This game shows that TT and LEGO can produce many awesome games.

    When I first bought this game and played the prologue I was like "This game sucks" because I never was interested in the LOTR series but after playing this game I believe it must be better than Harry Potter.The game was ... Read Full Review

    As far as LEGO games go, LOTR is one of the better titles.

    The LEGO videogames 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, th... Read Full Review

    LEGO: The Lord of the Rings: Review

    Just like every other game, LEGO Lord of the Rings is just plain fun. If you have played various other LEGO games you will realize that it is the same year after year, kind of like Call of Duty. Except LEGO games have a ... Read Full Review
