The lights are on
I wonder what Lord of the Rings author J.R.R. Tolkien, would think of the Lego video game adaptation of his classic books.
Would he accept them for the fun, lighthearted spoofs they are meant to be? Or would he respond more like an Alan Moore, and write it off entirely? I would like to think he would fall in the former camp rather than the latter.
Lego Lord of the Rings is coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS, Playstation Vita and Nintendo Wii in October.
Email the author Kyle Hilliard, or follow on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, and Game Informer.
Looks sweet, I'll be picking this up for Ps3 at launch.
I think this could be even better than Lego Star Wars III.
When I saw that screenshot I didn't even realize it was a lego game!
I am so excited for this! Especially because it means I can lure one of my roommates into playing a game with me.
Epic-without the Lego's?-then u get LOTR without Middle Earth
Well I would hope TT doesn't take it too seriously and the game maintains the sense of humor the series is known for.
Ya I never played the other lego games before. But I will check this one out for sure. One its lord of the rings and two that trailer was pretty awesome.
awesome I'm getting this after I get Lego Batman 2
Well considering the he published the Hobbit as a childrens book, I think ole J.R.R would be tickled to see his characters being so well liked and would probably challenge C.S. Lewis to a co-op game!
Definitely one of the funniest game trailers I've seen, Tom Kane's narration fits brilliantly.
