LEGO Lord Of The Rings – Review [GamingLives]

GamingLives takes a look at the latest franchise to be turned into little plastic blocks, capable of making grown men cry when standing on one barefoot.

"I know I’m not alone when I now express a certain sense of apathy with the release of Lego games; Lego Star Wars was a real trend-setter and blazed a trail for some great instalments, but eight years on and I was feeling that the genre has started to get a little stale. The newer titles weren’t really bringing much else to the table; it started to feel like I was playing the same game, just with different skins, and with money as tight as it is, I wasn’t willing to shell out all over again for something I probably wouldn’t even finish. But, it’s Lord of The Rings, so I couldn’t let this one pass without giving it a sniff. I played it very much with the opinion of “here’s your last chance, Travellers Tales. Wow me.” (3DS, LEGO Lord of the Rings, Nintendo DS, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360) 7/10
