  1. Years of slow innovation have resulted in a game worthy of the LOTR name. Probably not a classic, but the journey there and back again is a treat.

    LEGO Lord of the Rings is as fun as every other LEGO game, but mostly for all the Tolkien fans out there.

    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 the awful graphics that let it down, making it often very difficult to actually see what's happening properly. And, 'oh, please', don't listen to the whiny 12-year-old who goes by the name, 'vampirejoe' and thinks graphics are unimportant in a game. There also many glitches that force you to reset your wii. It's a shame because otherwise the game is good. Full Review »

    Okay I was little hesitant about buying this game after these reviews and because they didn't have many of the critics avail. but i'd say that it's ranks right up there with the rest of the different Lego Wii-based games we've played including Star Wars series and the Pirates of the Caribbean, Indiana Jones and batman. I don't think anyone has anything to worry about whether it's a mediocre game. If it is mediocre it's not because of the wii platform. So from what I've played with my son it's a fine edition. The split screen does rotate and cut at some inappropriate times but that's about it as far as game play goes. Full Review »

    Oh please, don't listen to the 12 year old who whines about graphics when it's nintendo's fault. So, anyway this game is actually good. I only had a glitch where I had to restart my Wii, but that wasn't a big deal. The graphics are fine, just like every wii game. The gameplay is good, less then a few glitches and is fun to play with someone with a friend or your brother. But, this game is actually good and is worth under 30 bucks. But, the thing is, that is has no multiplayer or anything else. Once your done, that's it. You can do side quests but that's really it. The controls are actually pretty good and the cutscenes and music are both really good. I say it's worth the buy, but be warned, it only has story in it. For under 30 bucks, I say go grab it. If you like LEGO's or like the video games of LEGO's go get it. Full Review »
