LEGO The Lord of the Rings: PlayStation 3 Game Review

LEGO The Lord of the Rings: PlayStation 3 Game Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 21, 2012
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

The wacky LEGO take on the popular fantasy trilogy includes voice acting from the movie! Check out more details in our game review!

By now, most gamers have played at least one LEGO game and know what it is all about. LEGO The Lord of the Rings still carries all the trademark features of the LEGO series, from drop-in/drop-out co-op to stud collecting and unlocking everything in the game. However, it feels like the game is still lacking something that made previous LEGO games super fun and entertaining.

The Epic Trilogy

LEGO The Lord of the Rings does very well to bring the full epicness of the movies to the game. The music and even the voice acting is taken straight from the movies, so you can enjoy your favorite moments from the trilogy once more. As always, the game goes beyond the movie, letting you explore every nook and cranny of Bag End, Rivendell, and Mount Doom. Puzzle solving and platforming is still the same as it has been in past LEGO titles, but combat has been improved a bit to include sword clashes and other neat effects.

 

Out of Its Element

Just like Frodo finds himself out of place in a world of taller people, LEGO The Lord of the Rings seems to venture too far away from the silliness that makes LEGO games so fun. The graphics in the game are too nice, making LEGO blocks stand out like a sore thumb in the beautiful environments of the game. In fact, a lot of the LEGO elements seem forced upon the world of The Lord of the Rings. It's weird to have slapstick comedy while Gimli and Legolas are competing to see who can kill more enemies. Overall, the game is well made and solid to play. Situationally, it is just a bit awkward.

Rating: 4

Price: $49.99

ESRB Rating: E 10+

I was playing the fan game Undertale Yellow and there's a character you encounter named Dalv. Dalv is a vampire yet an awkwardly shy vampire who hates intruders to his home. ...  What if he's related to the blooks? I mean... I know he's a fan made character but it's just a thought... let me explain (or at least try): Dalv (Vlad backwards) is a pinkish-purple skinned vampire who usually hides under a wood and walks around talking to himself . He has black hair in a shape close to Mettaton/ Hapstablook... and his theme...  has some  Death by Glamour vibes. Hmmm... let me know what you think...
