I had a look and can not see a thread on this, but there is a lego LoTR game coming this year.

I doubt it, but I could be surprised.  I'd expect to see another game with the Hobbit.

They might do something like the Lego SW complete sega with getting the Indiana Jones.

They're basing the sets on the movies, not the books, and seeing as the movie isn't out yet, I don't expect to see it in the game.

I believe the original Lego Star Wars game was released before Episode III was released, so it would not be unprecedented if levels based on the Hobbit: Part 1 were included.

I'm Agnostic and ambivalent about it.

Yes, let's hope. And the POTC game was made before the 4th film was released too.

They all sound "perfect" because the voices are taken from the movie.

I didn't pay any attention to that. but since this and batman 2 are both through WB and available for the handhelds, they will both probably see a port to ios about 6 months later. Which is awesome.

I think they may have brough in the voice actors to record the lines, though, because Boromir's line sounds differant than the movie.

Speaking of the lines, I really dislike this decision by TLG. There was so much more potential for humor without the spoken lines.

I think its a little to early to pass judgement, they might only use the voices  for Important parts of the story. Besides the teaser already demonstrated some humor between Gandalf and the Balrog with no dialogue.

Nope, they are taken from the movie.  Boromir sounds the same, youtube it.

Its been confirmed by WB.


I'm glad they have started doing proper voice.

I like the addition of voices. It was funny without them, of course, but I think that it makes a great addition. It works greatly in the trailer, at least.

I liked the trailer overall, and I'm excited for this game. :excited: However, I'm disappointed at Lego using belching for humor.  :thumbdown:

I was always under the impression that no voices were used in the Lego games so that it would be easier to market to foreign countries.

If there's no language then there's no language barrier, right?

Thanks for those links, Cammo! I might be tempted to buy this game. I can't keep up with all these amazing TT games, and I've only played the first one!
