Platform: PC Download

Based on The Lord of the Rings motion picture trilogy, LEGO The Lord of the Rings follows the original storylines of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, taking players through the epic story events reimagined with the humor and endless variety of LEGO play.

Trusted with the dangerous task to destroy an ancient magical ring that threatens all that is good, Frodo is forced to leave his peaceful home. But the ring wants to be found and the road to Mount Doom, the only place where it can be destroyed, will be perilous and riddled with Orcs and fouler things. To help Frodo, a Fellowship is formed —Aragorn the Ranger, Gandalf the Wizard, Legolas the Elf, Gimli the Dwarf, Boromir a Man of Gondor, and Frodo’s Hobbit friends Sam, Merry and Pippin. Players relive the legend through the LEGO minifigures, as they explore wonders, solve timeless riddles, and overcome endless foes in their quest to destroy the Ring.

    Excellent Lord of the Rings Lego game based on the 3 motion pictures combined, released in November, 2012. This is the first Lego game to use actual audio from the films for the voice acting. New climate changes and lighting effects create a more immersive and visually compelling feel to the game. It also has more of a role playing feel to it as there are more than 80 playable characters that can each have their own inventory. Each character has at least one special ability/skill and you must switch between characters to find the right one for a given task. Mithil bricks can be scavenged from open exploration areas and there is a blacksmith that can forge them into useful weapons. Lots of weapons, some magical and other items are acquired as the story unfolds.

    This is only the second Lego game to have actual talking characters. The game closely follows the movie but with nice doses of little humorous twists. It contains cutscenes that are well integrated into the game. There are puzzles and fighting and missions that must be completed to advance the story. Once a level is completed in story mode you can repeat it in open mode which allows you to select any character you have and explore the many nooks and crannies and complete mini-quests that Middle Earth citizens give you. Local co-op is supported.

    If you love the Lord of the Rings and/or Lego games I am sure you will enjoy this game. I'm not even a big Lego fan and I'm finding this game incredibly fun. Both adults and kids will have a great time with this game.

    This is really one of the best Lego games yet! I love Lord of the Rings and Lego, so I thought it would be a perfect combination. I was hoping that it would actually be possible to explore ALL of middle earth, but sadly it's a little more limiting than that. But the game play REALLY takes you into the story. Previous Lego games felt kind of like the cut-scenes were the movie, and you got to play the parts in between. With this you really feel like you're playing through the story. You even get to play through the whole wizard battle! Cut-scenes meld perfectly with the gameplay, so it just feels a lot smoother.

    The sword play also feels like it has some weight to it. It feels different playing as Elrond or Isildur. Everyone's attacks are timed differently creating more of an illusion of more advanced control.

    I haven't played much of the game yet, but I'm extremely glad with my purchase!

    I just got this game for Christmas and I love playing through the LOTR as it is one of my favorite tales, however the game pauses for long periods during gameplay for no apparent reason making a fun game into a chore. I've turned off all my background programs and have a very powerful system (Core i7, 16GB ram, gaming graphics card). There are no support forums for this game at either Lego or WB Games, which implies there's no support. I've emailed and await a response. I will upgrade my review if I get a helpful response that solves my problem.

    update 12/26/12 - I got an automated reply from WBgames suggesting I search their website and that an actual response would be coming in a couple of days. In the mean time thanks to Steam forums I found a solution to my problem. 1) I uninstalled the drivers to my Microsoft gamepad, and then reinstalled from the driver CD (initially I allowed Windows to load a driver automatically without using the driver disc at all). After a reboot this solved my freezing/pausing problem! Yay! 2) I had another problem with the game suddenly minimizing which was caused by a process associated with PlayOn called MyMediaMall which when Stopped solved that problem. SO, I recommend the Steam Lego LOTR forums if you have a problem! Enjoy the game.

    This installment in Lego's geek movie game series is another amazing bit of fun. It follows the same basic formula as all the others (Star Wars, Batman, Harry Potter, etc.). You get to play the game as all of the major characters, good guys and bad guys. As usual the game follows the story of the original movie faithfully. You can live out all of your favorite scenes and battles as your favorite hero and then relive them as your favorite villain. All of the best scenes and lines are recreated with the Lego world's unique sense of humor. One added perk in the Lord of the Rings game is the use the of the voices of the original actors from the movie. As charming as the usual grunting and gesturing is, the addition of the original voices and original lines makes this game all the richer and more fun. For a die-hard geek like me, this game is the ultimate interactive fun.

    If you have played any of the previous games and seen the Lord of the Rings movies, there will be few surprises here yet game after game this formula never ceases to entertain and is just as addictive as the last. Game play involves the usual search for canister/treasure chest/pieces to Lego items that correspond to each "level". There is the usual search for and task to perform to get the "bricks" which are used in this game to forge items at a blacksmith shop which are needed in the game. The player collects Lego "studs" to use as money to buy useful bonus features such as multipliers for collected studs, "invincibility" and "action assist" which helps the character build items faster.
