Pure gold. Might be the best looking Lego game too.

Should LEGO's talk?

Holy crap, this looks really awesome!

It's more like 'BO-kayh', by the way.

Haha I am just loving the humour in these games! I will definitely have to get this game! It is looking like one of the better Lego games out there!

I have never played a Lego game, but this looks fantastic. Might pick this up actually.

Sauron was a 10 foot tall badass demi-god back then. Severing the ring that he had invested so much power into killed his body. Later on the Eye on top of the tower was his "personification"

Do they Gandalf?

This looks just excellent for a Lego game.

Still seems too Lego-y for my tastes. Lots of aimless wandering and trying to smack/interact with everything you can.

Wow, this does look like their A-game. The last LEGO game I played through was the original LEGO Star Wars on Gamecube, but I'd love to pick this up at some point.

I was pretty bummed that they were going from the silent Lego characters to the talking ones. I really enjoyed the pantomimed humour in Harry Potter or Star Wars Lego! But, seeing how they did this, I'm actually super on board. The combination of Lego characters and actual movie VO on its own is fairly absurd, but adding that extra hilarious shit, like the acknowledgement that Sam's dedication to Frodo is a bit creepy, or having Elrond have a Lego manual.... that just absolutely sells it. Having it played so goddamn straight-faced with the VO, then have Sam's actions just be creepy and absurd leads to some good meta-humour I can appreciate as an adult.

I kinda don't want to play a lego game, but I really wanna play this.

This video made my day, even if me and my daughter have a fever. I just have to way 3-4 years before we can play it together =)

Frodo killing himself over and over, especially with the scream, made my day.

I came for the LEGO Lord of the Rings Quick Look. I stayed for the Vinny and Brad quoting Lord of the Rings.

The LOTR score is the best musical score in the history of movies. It's so beautiful.

Posted by Branthog

Hah! The LOTR trilogy! That was a thing over a decade ago! Hah! Relevant!

And now I have to listen to the LOTR soundtrack for the rest of the day, THANKS A LOT, VINNY AND BRAD!

Same here. Bastards!

I've never really had the desire to play any of these Lego games until now. I'm not even much of a LOTR fan these days either, but everything about this game looks like pure FUN.

oh man.. Vinny was hilarious in this

Posted by Carlos1408

That was a hilarious QL. I must say the humor in this one is pretty great. Also the score for the movies is awesome, Howard Shore is incredible.

Posted by bkbroiler

The thing where Vinny thinks the torch is stuck the Ringwraith is actually the breathing tube for the actor who is on fire. Still doesn't change that fact that they should have fixed that somehow.

I have an odd fascination with Lego fire.

Batman Trilogy all the way!
