RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014) I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...

What do these ratings mean?

I’m sorry for posting a review on the Xbox 360 platform, but I am unsure how to post it on the 3DS platform. If someone knows how to post on the 3DS platform, please let me know. The 3DS version of Lego Lord of the Rings has an amazing 3D function. The loading screen is a prime example of the 3D function. On this screen, the one ring will rotate and when the 3D is on, it looks realistic as if you could put your finger through it.  
 In addition to the positive 3D function, this game also incorporates the typical Lego humor. The best example to demonstrate Lego humor is the Battle of Amon Hen. Lurtz's Uruk-Hai, soldiers for the Isengard army, fails to kill Boromir, Merry, and Pippin, members of the fellowship. Lurtz throws a banana at Boromir then Merry and Pippin are taken by the Uruk-Hai. Aragorn comes and saves Boromir who says his last words and dies having been killed by the banana.
The negative aspect about this game is the dialogue. Most of the dialogue from the “Lord of the Ring” movies is there, however some essential dialogue is missing. The best example takes place during the battle of Helms Deep.  In the game, as soon as the Uruk-Hai arrives, Gimil, the dwarf, says "what’s happening out there?" and then the Uruk-Hai roars and the battle begins. What is missing is the rest of the dialogue from the movie.  For example, Legolas the Elf says, "Shall I describe it to you or would you like me to find you a box." Gimil replies, "heh heh heh." Then the old archer can't keep his hands steady and fires his arrow and hits an Uruk-Hai in the field and the Uruk-Hai dies.  Theodon, the king of Rohan, says "so it begins" and the battle commences.  This dialogue is important because it adds humor to the game which is advertised as having humor.  Without it, the player does not get the full effect of the humor from the story.
