This review is from: LEGO Lord of the Rings PlayStation 3
Pros: As usual, TT has created another beautiful Lego title. It has a familiar feel to previous games, but has slight changes in how to acquire bricks and other items. It does not take long to adjust to these changes. They have done a respectable job in mapping out Tolkien's world.
Cons: This game is full of glitches. I would hold off on playing it until TT releases patches through the Playstation Network. There are items that you can walk through and not collect. There are frequent lock-ups. I have had my PS3 lock up an average of every 30-45 minutes while playing, requiring a full system reboot. Having experienced this on some previous TT Lego titles (but not at this high frequency), it probably means I will have to start the game over from the beginning in order to complete it. Even though the game will show you have collected all of the treasure chests, one or two will invariably be missed in the total count due to the lock-ups.
Other Thoughts: The Lego series of games are some of my favorites, but TT needs to do a better job of testing them on all platforms before general release. I don't know why I bother buying and playing them at initial release, because I know I will have to start over from the beginning after the bugs have been fixed.READ FULL REVIEW
