After so many licensed properties have received the LEGO treatment in recent years, it's easy to blow them off and assume a new game won't bring anything different to the table. But in the case of LEGO The Lord of the Rings, developer Traveller's Tales has crafted something of a culmination of its efforts over the years. Yes, there's still some serious familiarity in the gameplay, but the journey to Mordor with Frodo and company is also the top digital LEGO experience to date.
JRR Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings saga is one of those fiction properties that finds itself injected into just about every form of media. Sure, the film trilogy is absolutely hard to beat, but there are also quite a few video games based on the universe. One such property is The Lord of the Rings Online, a massively multiplayer online game running strong since 2007. But if you're a Mac user who has yet to jump on board, the game is finally receiving a native Mac client.
