Great Game but Beware of Glitch at the End of the Game
Gameplay is fun and the puzzles make it interesting. Don't worry about control problems as they can be fixed on the in-game pause menu, but BEWARE of a glitch at the last part of the game. In order to take out the orcs on the castle wall during "Journey's End", you have to find arrows for the artillery which are hidden in some of the orcs that jump out and attack the artillery. After defeating them and launching the arrows, the camera shows another set of orcs jump out to attack the other piece of artillery. So, if the other attacking orcs carried an arrow, these must also...except when they are shown jumping onto the battlefield the disappear and I'm left unable to finish the game. Needless to say frustrating and creators please fix this! BUT I ENCOURAGE ANYONE WHO LOVED THE MOVIES TO PLAY THE GAME. Sure I experienced a glitch, but I didn't experience some that other people did. I just want to warn people in case you experience my situation ... I guess you won't be a shocked as me then.
An absolute delight!
If you are a LOTR fan, then this is a must while its on sale for only a buck! For a buck you can get a McDonald coke, maybe a candy bar on sale but for a measley buck you can get LEGO LOTR! An outstanding value!
I just added this to my LEGO Batman collection this afternoon and have played about 1 hour. Like I said, if you like LOTR then this will put a smile on your face. You have some cutscenes redone LEGO style with voice overs from the movie. The music is straight from the movie as well. The shire was fun but the music a little redundant after awhile but very whimsical.
If you haven't played LEGO games before they are creative, humorous and just overall fun. There have been many negative comments about the controls and I would tend to agree it can be frustrating. There are two options: swipe and tap or virtual joystick/button controls. The virtual stick is more accurate but it does have its issues with sensitivity and odd camera angles sometimes. As a gamer from commodore 64, Atari 2600, nes, snes, gamecube, dreamcast, wii, and ps3- yes mobile gaming can be really tough. But for me I know the limitations and adapt to it. So the controls are a deal buster.
Is LOTR fun and playable- for sure. Are the controls for everyone, maybe not for thoughs who have expectations of mobile gaming. LOTR certainly is worth the price of admission especially with all the content you get. 4.5 stars out of 5.
Controls are fine, but don't expect 100% without spending $
I like the game. I do. But I'm also into FINISHING games, and I just can't see that happening here.
Let me clarify. I've completed the game twice. I collect all of the studs, have found all of the characters, completed all quests, found all profiles. However, I'm at about 75%. The only item I've ever bought with my studs is the 2x multiplier, because it's the only multiplier I could afford. There is no way I will ever save 4 BILLION (yes, billion) studs for the 10x, as it's been a huge grind just to get halfway to the 8 million required for the 4x multiplier. I'm tempted to spend the 4.99 just to buy it, but what's the point? So I could more easily grind to unlock the other things now that I've finished the game? I'm sure that's what they want you to do, but it seems wrong.
By the way -- the trick to jumping high with Legolas is not to do a quick double jump, but to wait until he's almost done with his jump and then jump again. Once I figured that out things went very smoothly.
