To those thinking this is just another movie tie-in game, please don't be mistaken. After watching gameplay from 2012's E3 this will be clearly the best Lego game yet, and potentially the best Lord of the Rings game yet as well.
For the first time in a game you will be able to fight balrog as Gandalf, as both fall into the darkness of the Mines of Moria just as in the movie! All three movies will be in the game, as well as some of the books' content not seen in movies.
The game's journey will visit all the locations seen in the movie (Shire, Bree, Mines of Moria, path of Caradhras, Rohan, Amon Hen, Osgiliath, Minas Tirith, and of course Mordor, and even the Grey Havens!). And all movie characters will be unlock-able as well (rumors say that Tom Bombadill might be one as well).
Additionally Howard Shore's movie soundtrack will be in the game along actor's voice tracks taken straight from the movie and perfectly placed on the game.
This is THE Lord of the Rings game I have been waiting for, actually even better cause it's in Lego form lol, so all my family can enjoy. It will be one game to rule them all :D .
Peace out to all, happy gaming, and do yourselves a favor and keep this game in your wish list :D
