Lego Lord of the Rings
I was a little disappointed to hear there were no press copies of Lego Lord of the Rings available on the Nintendo 3DS. Sure we had reviewed the home console version, but I have been getting into Lego video games on this hand held, and love the 3D effects. God provided for us in miraculous ways, and this game went on sale. I snapped it up with personal money and have been enjoying this game in between all the other products that have come in.
Lego Lord of the Rings on the 3DS is scaled down from the home console version a little bit. I am astounded at how much content TellTale Games was able to put into Lego Lord of the Rings on the Nintendo 3DS. The visuals look great, and that includes the 3D. The Lego versions of their characters look better in this version than I was expecting.
The voice acting comes in sound bytes from the movies in Lego Lord of the Rings. I loved hearing their voices in this hand held game. Once in awhile their comments are late, but I was quick to forgive this, especially when I got to listen to the wonderful music from the movies.
I never got stuck in Lego Lord of the Rings thanks to level design. This is a huge improvement for the Lego franchise since too many of them frustrate to the level of quitting the game. That is unless you figure out to do some obscure action that no normal person would ever consider trying. I did get stuck on a couple of game glitches where things that needed to happen did not. Quitting and completely redoing the level cured those.
Lego Lord of the Rings is one of those games with so much replay value that you could play until the return of Jesus. There are tons of hidden items, and unlockable characters. Like other Lego games we collect studs in levels and then use them to purchase additional content. I spent my own money on Lego Lord of the Rings and feel it was well worth the price.
Lego Lord of
the Rings is one of the best games I have played on the Nintendo 3DS all
year long. That is saying a lot. It is entertaining, approachable by
families, and the puzzles are solvable if you look around the levels.
The one concern parents will have with Lego Lord of the Rings is the
violence. We have to slice and dice enemies in Lego Lord of the Rings.
That gets old after awhile. As does the fact that our computer
controlled companion can never kill enemies for us. They can get in our
