The LEGO video games impressed a lot of us back when LEGO Star Wars first came out. But through the years, the series started settling into a routine, and it wasn’t long before each new addition to the series started feeling like a reskinned version of the last one. There came a point where most of us were in agreement that some major changes were needed in order to convince us that we should keep spending money on these games.
Then LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes came out and did some legitimately cool new things. While that was neat and all, LEGO The Lord of the Rings is here, and it completely rewrites the LEGO formula from the ground up. 4.7/5
