'There's good in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it's worth fighting for!'

Glorfindel will definitely be one of the unlockable characters. Smile

Just a little longer [In reply to] Can't Post

This is gonna be a blast. I've been wanting them to do a game like this for a while and to play in middle-earth again will be great.

This truly will be one game to rule them all... [In reply to] Can't Post

The Lego guys know how to play the game (excuse the un-deliberate pun): if you please the fans of the films *and* books, then how can you go wrong? Of course, if you love both, then it's even better.

This game may be delayed for quite a while but I honestly couldn't care less. This game is going to be worth every minute of that wait.Smile

I've actually played some of the game [In reply to] Can't Post

In a demo for the Nintendo 3DS, and it was very well done. The scene was that of Weathertop, and followed the film and books well. (Along with the fun dialog and Howard Shore's music Smile. )

I think the whole Bombadil-Barrow Downs stuff is restored in the Lego game [In reply to] Can't Post

 

A Far Dragon is the best kind...

Using the original score makes a big difference [In reply to] Can't Post

The Harry Potter Lego games are pretty well done, I'm surprised he didn't mention them. But they also use the movie score and I think that adds to the enjoyment of the game.

I'm looking forward to this now! If it's got Howard Shore's score, I'm in :-).
