My first review, going to keep this super short.
First off, this game is unfortunately a port from the 3DS. The gameplay graphics look ok, id give them a 3.5/5 but the cutscenes look really low res. the gameplay is the same as other versions, which is a plus. Audio is very poorly ripped from the films. Overall I personally like the game, but i am a huge LotR fan.
The game seems like it should be good but it wasnt. the audio i had a major problem with since they ripped it from the movie which should not be a problem except it was done so poorly that it sounds like someone used a iphone to record from a t.v. and the put it in game. the humor had me chuckling a lot but the audio being so bad kept pulling me away. the graphics are ok but there is no lego feel to it. aside from a few lego pieces in each stage it looks more like LOTR featuring lego pieces than a lego game.also the constant loop of sfx gets annoying fast. i was hoping for a good experience and i was left disappointed

I've played LEGO Batman 2 and LEGO Pirates and I enjoyed those immensely. They were soooo much fun. But this game, I'm sure it's just because it is the VITA version, but the graphics were kinda not up to par, and the audio... oh the audio was a nightmare. It sounded like they put a microphone to a television set and stole it straight from the movie. I would advise playing the console version of this game! Avoid this one if you can--unless you want 27 easy trophies, then go for it. No multi-player needed for trophies!
This game is one of the best lego games ive ever played. The action was outstanding and the sound effects and voice acting was very good. It is very long and is like the movies but without all the drama and suspense. I liked it a lot

I am a huge Lord of the Rings fan, and love the movies. This game incorporates every little detail plus the main events of the Lord of the Rings Adventure. The Gameplay is great and overall I would recommend if your a big a fan as i am of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, you should buy the game instead of renting. Would of gave a perfect 10 if the game wasn't a lego adventure but actual RPG game .

Great Lego game with solvable but fun puzzles. Not as frustrating as other Lego games can be, like the Lego Harry Potter or Lego Star Wars series. This game was more enjoyable than the Lego games I have played in the past, and it actually used the actual voice dialogue and sound effects from the Lord of the Rings movies.

i'm a big fan of LOTR and this will be probably the 6-7th lego game i've played, so i like the combination of the 2. as far as lego games go, this one was one of the easier ones despite having more combat than most, and also had the fewest glitches out of any lego game i've played, which having just played lego pirates and not being able to finish because of glitches i'm relieved at this extremely smooth game. if you like lego, lotr, or just want a fast easy platinum, this game is where its at
