LEGO The Lord of the Rings: Review

Anyone who is a fan of the LEGO video games knows they are a decent puzzle plat-former. The games are aimed towards the younger generations, targeting children to young teens. Built around this premise, the objectives are straight forward and easily highlighted. The games are put together well, the controls handle nicely for the most part, and the formula stays pretty consistent throughout the games. Unfortunately, that consistency is what is slowly killing the franchise. With practically no innovation, the games are becoming a stale repetition with a setting and character roster change. The games may be advertised for kids, but there are a large amount of casual players that make up those sales figures. Eventually, the continuous use of that mediocre formula will simply cause the games to flop, and the time will come when relying on the low expectations of the consumer will be the end of the LEGO series.
