LEGO Lord Of The Rings Reviewed

Macworld UK has posted a new review of Feral Interactive's LEGO The Lord of the Rings. Developed by TT Games and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for consoles, handhelds and PC, LEGO The Lord of the Rings brings the unique brick-based humor of the LEGO games to the legendary world of Middle-earth.

The Lego games have always allowed you to switch control from one character to another, and this approach works well with the ‘fellowship of the Ring’ as you can switch between the different characters in order to use particular weapons or skills – perhaps switching to a nimble Elf in order to jump up to an item that the little Hobbits can’t reach. The game also allows two people to play together, with each controlling a different character.

The combat is simple but fun – all you can really do is hit enemies and do a bit of jumping and dodging, but a more complex combat system might have been off-putting for the game’s young audience. And, for variety, the battles are also mixed in with levels where you have to explore and find your way past various obstacles, such as the impressively rendered lava pits of Mount Doom.
