I want to start by saying that prior to this game, I had never experienced a Lego game before.
I love lotr and the hobbit movies so I was excited to play this game. If you have seen the movie you'll quickly realize it follows the movie almost spot on, obviously changing SOME things to make it more kid friendly.
I never experienced any major glitching like other users are describing and I have all 39 achievements / 100% the game. It isn't super necessary to farm ingredients if you play the game smart. My ONLY complaint is that I dislike the building mini games, especially when I had to do the levels over to 100% the game and I wish you had the option to skip them. Other than that I loved the game, it took 55 hours to 100% it, only a few days to complete the story though.
In fact after playing this game and then going back to play older ones like Lego marvel, I MISS the creating stuff with pieces and all the thing that were in the game.
Another Lego game where you run around smash stuff, build stuff, and meet other in game objectives of collecting, carrying, and so on. If you like the LOTR and Hobbit series, then you will enjoy this game. If you do not like LOTR or the Hobbit then you will not appreciate the game as much.
Just like other Lego games, you have to complete the main quests first in order to enter free play mode and be able to collect everything in the game.
