Game Over Online: "LEGO The Lord of the Rings is fantastic – very possibly one of the best LEGO games made to date. The level design is ingenious and unique despite using the same tried and true techniques we’ve seen before. I like how different situations call for unique strategies. I also appreciated the risk taken since there is no central hub. At first I wasn’t sure about it, but using an interconnected series of short areas between the levels that take you all the way from Hobbiton in the Shire to the darkest depths of Mordor, I found to be a wise choice. You really get a feel for the 'quest.'"
