Best of any Lego games I’ve ever played!
I’ve played some of the Lego games including Indiana Jones and Harry
Potter. Even though those games were fun, I never got into the whole
Lego series. But with this game, it blew me away. This one made me enjoy
every minute of it!
The story of course follows the adventures
of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, which I’m a big fan of the series. I
also noticed that there were some parts of the books they added to the
game (if you read the books, you may had noticed too.)
As for the
cut scenes, I did enjoy them. I wasn’t upset or anything about the game
having the dialogue from the movies. In fact, I think if they didn’t
have the dialogue, this game would be a bit boring (like the HP Lego
game having no dialogue; though it was good, it made me bored as I
continued to play.)And every time I’ve played the Lego Lord of the Rings
in front of my younger siblings, they always cracked up at the jokes in
the cutscenes, especially when Boromir died. Even I enjoyed and laughed
at those scenes, too.
I was already impressed by the beautiful
of the whole landscape in the previews and reviews of the game. The
makers really put their best into this game. I also like it how you can
explore Middle Earth with your characters before continuing on with the
story. You could unlock other characters, collect blocks, or go on
quests from other NPC. Giving the player a chance to take a break and
just explore was a good thing to have.
Being a Lego game, I did
find some parts easy. They point out how much wood you need, how many
enemies you need to defeat, etc. I actually find that good since there
will be children that will be playing this game. However, even though
I’m an adult, I’ve found myself either stuck or in constant groan when
my character dies. Not that it’s bad or anything, I find it more of a
challenge, making me more excited as the fight presses on.
if your kid or even yourself are a fan of Lord of the Rings, this game
is by far one of the best in the last few years. Enjoy!
