Lego The Lord of the Rings (Xbox 360)
Been playing this since Wednesday and finished my first play through the story earlier today. It's no real surprise that it surpasses previous Lego games as that is the general pattern. It's very faithful to the source, and it feels as epic in places. The new features are good, such as the inventory and levels split over multiple characters. It gets a little annoying picking the right character for the right puzzle during the levels with the full Fellowship but there aren't many of those really.
The stand out part of the whole thing is the open world hub and it absolutely pisses on Batman 2's attempt of an open world hub. The fact that you can just wander around a Lego sized Middle-Earth is a dream to a fan like me.
Well there's some quick thoughts before I head back on to work towards 100%, as always.
Oh and it's already making me feel anticipation for Lego The Hobbit which will inevitably come out sometime after the third film.
