    Default LEGO Lord of the Rings?

    Is it as awesome as it looks and sounds? On the fence. $30.

    Really close to ordering it for $30 but as TNPM says, it will be $15-$20 in a few months and with my backlog, I might as well wait. I still have Lego Batman 2 to play

    My backlog is bigger than your backlog.

    I think it's the best of the series, but I'm spoiled by playing it splitscreen co-op.
    it is a short campaign (perhaps 8 hours) but has a ton of things to discover like any other Lego game in free play mode.
    why hate? participate!

    Is the sound good? Will it make use of a home theater?

    Yep, at GMG with additional 25% voucher, haha you already know.

    Haven't played it yet, so unsure of the sound. Like others, will wait for it to go on sale.

    Edit: Was able to get Lego Batman 2 from Gamefly for $7.50 around after three months it came out.

    Lego Batman 2, Bastion and more on sale at GameFly
    Usul, we have wormsign the likes of which even God has never seen.

    With the amount of shite I have bought during this end of year period, I shouldn't be the one to talk, by all means, if you got the moneys, go get it.

    If you've not played a LEGO game, maybe try one of the cheaper ones to get a feel for them? The music and dialogue are taken straight from the movies. I find it a bit disconnected with the visuals but most seem to like it.
    One thing they do now, I noticed, is they have these platform wars, like "Xbox is better than Playstation." That's nerdy to me. What the fuck is the matter with you?

    It's no uncharted title, that's for sure.
    The Lego games have always been silly humor gameplay > graphics.

    But they do use the Howard Shore score do they not? That alone is home theater worthy. More concerned about audio than graphics.
