5.0 out of 5 stars Light-hearted fun in Middle Earth November 15, 2012
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game takes place over the course of the three Lord of the Rings books (it does not include the story of The Hobbit). I've been playing it nonstop since I picked it up at launch, and here are a few points of interest:

1. Like the other Lego games, this is a light-hearted version of the story. If changing canon for the sake of a few laughs upsets you, stay away from this one. I am a huge Lord of the Rings fan, and I found myself laughing quite a bit.
2. The more mature parts are cleaned up for younger players. Carrots in place of beer, milkshakes in place of Hobbit weed - you get the picture. Safe for the kids.
3. Like the more recent Lego Batman 2, there are actual voice actors speaking dialogue during the cutscenes, as opposed to the pantomiming in the earlier Lego games.
4. There are elements of the story from the books, excluded from the movies, which are included in the game. I won't spoil the surprise.
5. A new inventory system lets you collect and combine gear to add a few RPG elements to the game.
6. If you're unsure about picking this up, there is a demo available for the PC. While it is on a different platform, you'll get a general feel for the game.

A great game, and I consider it the best of the Lego series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun, but overly complicated November 26, 2012
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
My son and I are big fans of the Lego games. We've played all of them but Indiana Jones 2, which we were advised to avoid. The games are a perfect match of fun, comedy, puzzles, and activities to perform for those who wish to get "100%". This works well for father/son gaming. He wants to blow through the levels and watch the humorous cinematics, I want to go back and meticulously go through every nook and cranny and unlock all the secrets. We play together and by ourselves and everyone is happy.

We love the Lord of the Rings franchise (books, movies, games) and it is a good fit for the Lego gaming experience. The folks at Traveler's Tales Games have really tried to push the envelope of Lego gaming by adding a more open play space, quests and a map function.

This is one of the first titles to use dialogue, Batman 2 being the first. LOTR pulls dialogue directly from the films, including the grunts made during jumps and when fighting. It's a mixed bag. Some scenes it really works but I found that both my son and I missed the 'lego language' of previous games. Not a big deal, just a little issue. The humor level is down a bit from other games. There are occasional sight gags that made us laugh out loud but the jokes are less frequent.

It's more to do with the subject matter but the color palate is pale and muted. When you are walking around you will get lost just like Sam and Frodo. Tan hills, grey hills... Get ready for grey bricks, dark grey bricks, tan bricks, brown bricks, dark brown bricks. I know, it's reproducing medieval fantasy but it gets a little dull busting up chunks of rocks all the time. It must be taxing for the Wii because you will be walking along and the background will suddenly appear. "Oh, we're in Hobbiton, finally.

4.0 out of 5 stars A slight change for Lego gamers November 16, 2012
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I pre-ordered this game and have played for several hours already. There are a few changes in the structure of the game which make sense given the story. Like a couple of the other Lego games you have the ability to change characters via a character wheel, which makes it very helpful for several of the puzzles. The map ability is a new and very helpful feature so that you can see where you are and eventually jump from map point to map point. I have not used the inventory feature a whole lot yet, but I can see how it will be useful further on in the game. It seems like Lego is seeing what works and doesn't in the past few games and is improving for customer satisfaction.

Other than a couple of slightly glitchy (which you can't catch everything) or very dark (just turn up the brightness) levels, its a highly enjoyable game for both Lego lovers and fans of the series.

1.0 out of 5 stars Glitch-ity glitch December 3, 2012
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I know that we are constantly coming back with glitches in this game. I have one glitch that says I have not collected the items but I know we did and took them and traded them with citizens of middle earth already. Yet it still reads "0". Wow. In the back gate free play the game wouldn't allow is to fight the black rider. We had to power off and then try again. Once through the black rider, we are now stuck with Aragorn not being recognized, even in the circle, to fight the troll with armor.

Characters get stuck when they fall into nether regions only to recover by powering off. It sucks. Jumping distances are inconsistent. Hence getting sucked into the nether regions.

The split screen is annoying. I like other versions where two characters are in the same space use one screen.

Targeting is weak at best. Only to be stuck seeing part of it if in two player mode because of the split screen.

Over all the game play is pretty simple. Easier than other Lego games. I miss the feature to change the characters by using the 1 or 2 buttons.

I honestly think that this version of the game has me set on never getting another Lego Wii game. Without update possibilities the game will continue to be frustrating because I will not be able to complete it. Maybe it is just that Wii is part of the issue but the poorly tested and sold game is the real culprit.

ETA: So we finally have gotten to the point in the game where we would like to finish. Lo and behold we have hit a glitch that it doesn't record the hidden treasures found in Helms Deep. I can give those found treasures to the characters to get bricks and such but because I am short ONE mithreal brick I can not finish the entire game. I am locked out. So I am revising the review to a 1 star. Again no way to get updates because Wii doesn't support that. Kids are frustrated as am I.

This game is so much fun. It is a bit dark and very true to the movies even though it is a Lego game, so it might not be appropriate for younger players. Read more
