As brilliant as I expected....,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: LEGO The Lord of the Rings (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
My pre-ordered copy of LOTR arrived yesterday - excellent service!
I've had a few hours playing, and am pleased to say that the game is well up to the usual Lego standard.
The gameplay will be familiar to those who have played other Lego games on the DS...different characters have different skills and abilities, you play first in the story mode and can then play the same chapter again in free mode.....loads of stuff to bash, build and collect....and a vast playing arena.
The game is perhaps not quite as accessible as some of the other Lego titles. Younger players may need help working out what to do for some of the tasks.
I loved the way the story starts with the forging of the ring. And the story ( as far as I have played so far!) is faithful to the original.
My only minor quibble is that sometimes when you try and place an object it is hard to find exactly the right spot to stand...I kept dropping the item until I found the right small spot to stand.
But an excellent game nonetheless.
