A bucket-load of average content
Overall, this app is good. Not amazing, not terrible, but passably- average.
Graphics are mediocre, not particularly high-resolution, but better than most games out there. It's very annoying how the background is just a poorly drawn set of boring objects, trees, or a large grey blob that is supposed to be a mountain. The sound quality (in combat) is average, but the background score is very nice, taken straight from the movies. Voice acting and animations in cutscenes are superb.
Gameplay consists of the usual LEGO puzzles, but character abilities are forced, and don't make much sense. (Why do Hobbits have fishing poles, tinder boxes, and shovels?)
Unfortunately. Combat is sluggish, and movement is VERY unresponsive. Fighting enemies is a bit of a chore, consisting of (very nice looking, but boring) slash combos, and the occasional power attack, or block. Overall, not very smooth.
In short, this LEGO title has a TON of poorly executed content. Great cutscenes, great music, tons of levels, and 100s of characters (and the usual LEGO cuteness) are marred by boring combat, uninspired puzzle mechanics, and passable graphics.
If your a fan of LEGO, or the LoTR, pick this app up, but don't expect too much.
Good overall game
When you buy this game don't don't expect a mobile version of Lego The Lord of the Rings the video game. They've changed levels, some character designs, and edited the video clips, mainly, shortening them, and adding sound effects. I own the ps3 version and love it. I appreciate the new moves they added to characters, in the iPad version, Elendil, for example. I love the charge attacks. However, in the case of Legolas, who has his bow in front of his face with an arrow on the string, I dislike the change. Like before mentioned, some of the mini figs designs have been changed, some for the better in the case of Gondor Pippin, of for the worse in the case of the Uruk hai. Overall I think this game is fun and entertaining with amazing graphics and levels. I give it only four stars cause of the continual pressure to make in app purchases despite the five dollar cost.
Interesting and new character designs
New moves and abilities
Changed up levels
Exiting and absorbing gameplay
Capes on characters who shouldn't
(In some cases,) new character designs
Constantly pushed to buy things
First don't listen to the reviews about the controls, those idiots just haven't figured out how to change it (took me a full minute)
Second this game follows very closely with Middle Earth Lore and those who are true LOTR fans would understand why Merry has a fishing rod (he and his relatives are one of the few Hobbits that live near a river and can swim) and Pippin is always eating ( remember when Gandalf arrives at Isengard and Meriadoc and Pippin greet them )
The graphics and scenery are exceptional. Some people are expecting Skyrim type scenery but for 5 bucks whats there is more than awesome.
The cutscenes are superb and have the same humor found in all Lego games.
The characters in the shop are a bit expensive but thats understandable because you are trying to make people spend real money :/
Only complaint is that there should be at least two save files or one on your device and one through iCloud. 5 stars if you change it.
Music and voice acting wonderful
Battling is fun and not sluggish or lagging at all (even when I'm running a screen recorder)
