The game in itself is amazing, the use of voice extracted from the film is well done, it adds a lot of humour to the story, and still manages to keep a ver similar plot to the films. It's still got the stud collection like all lego games, yet it seems easier to me this time to unlock characters etc.
The downside to this game is that there are a couple of glitches. Some of these are a little game breaking, like fighting a certain boss requires him to grow something at you and if you stand to close it gets stuck in an unreachable platform. Little things like that, which sometimes force you to replay 10-15 minutes of gameplay which can get frustrating.
Overall a thoroughly enjoyable game for leg or LOTR fans alike
