LEGO The Lord of the Rings
LEGO Lord of the Rings feels like a refinement of the last portable LEGO game attempt that still doesn’t meet the expectations of the device it’s being played on. As a 3DS game this would work fine but when you port it to the Vita you really expect more and Traveler’s Tales has really failed to deliver recently. I would say if you are looking for a LEGO game on the go then you should probably just keep waiting until they decide to put forth a real effort. If you still want to check this game out then I can only warn you by saying it’s only slightly better than their last attempt and can only hold up because of the source material.
Lord of the Rings: War in the North
Speaking of Eagles, I will point out the best thing about War in the North’s combat: when battling in open areas and have a feather in your possession, you can call forth an Eagle onto an enemy and watch in delight as the giant bird swoops in and tears poor fool to shreds. That, my friends, is awesome.
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
As a game based on the hit Tolkien movies, The Two Towers certainly would be a hit among fans of the movies, and action gamers alike. Everything from high-quality presentation, solid gameplay to exclusive unlockable bonuses just exudes a high degree of class. The Two Towers looks like another winner from EA Games, and shows that movie conversions can work, if done right.
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
This game is a disservice to the fans, wasting a fantastic license on such a terrible game. Hardcore fans might be tempted to play this game, but we can only recommend that you rent it first before blowing your hard-earned money on this disappointingly average title.
