The LEGO The Lord of the Rings wiki last edited by Poltergeist13 on 04/28/14 01:56PM View full history

Overview

Following the story of the Lord of the Rings film trilogy, Lego The Lord of the Rings continues Lego Batman 2: DC Superheroes' implementation of having the Lego characters talk. Instead of having an original voice cast, Lego The Lord of the Rings uses the original film dialogue.

Gameplay

Much like past LEGO games based on movie and/or book licenses, LEGO Lord of the Rings uses various settings and characters from the franchise. Players engage in light combat and solve puzzles to progress through the game, puzzles involve simple mechanics such as putting blocks on pressure pads and flicking levers, as is the norm for games in the LEGO franchise. LEGO Lord of the Rings introduces the ability for the player to equip characters with different weaponry and items as the game progresses, some examples of which are the Light of Eärendil, Elven rope, and different swords and bows. Every character now has their own inventory to be able to hold these items. Some examples of new character specific abilities are Gandalf's ability to use magic, and Gimli's ability to be thrown by other characters.
