Did they literally just take film audio and put it in the game?
FerFogs - 4/8/2014, 10:13 AM
Yeah, they've been doing this for a while now.

@aevelasquez

Yup, they did that for the Lord of the Rings one too.

That makes it seem so slapdash and fan made. I dont know, maybe it's just me.
FerFogs - 4/8/2014, 10:21 AM
Nah, not just you.

I also wish they went back to the mute ones. seemed much more authentic imo.

Yeah, I remember the original Lego Star Wars as being really fun. Granted, I haven't played any since then, but I don't feel it's as valid a game when they do something like this. The game should be able to stand on its own without literally pulling elements from the movie and throwing them in there. Anyone who wants to hear the film, should watch the film.

Remember when they used to have 'no voice acting' or 'different voice actors' and personally I'd prefer either to having the sounds just ripped straight from the film. Damn, I know its a cheap tie-in game solely done to profit off the films - but at least give us effort.

Personally, I thought Lego Marvel Super Heroes and Lego Batman 2 were the best so far.
aevelasquez - 4/8/2014, 10:32 AM
I actually never played Lego Batman 2. It looks awesome though.
FerFogs - 4/8/2014, 10:38 AM
Don't get me wrong. I never played a bad LEGO game - the only ones I haven't played were the Pirates and Harry Potter ones.

Lego Marvel / LoTR were the best IMO.

But I liked them more when we had mute characters.

The mute games were fun, but the movie dialog has its advantages. Playing Lego Indy when I hadn't seen the movies in a while, there were moments where I just had no idea what was going on.

BTW, still hoping for a Lego Back to the Future next year, when the movie makes 30 years and the year when Marty is supposed to travel to in BTTF2.
FerFogs - 4/8/2014, 10:41 AM
@CuddlyCereal - yeah, maybe that was the main reason.
DrunkenNukem - 4/8/2014, 11:07 AM
Lol this looks cool!!!

I want to buy it!

The Harry Potter Lego games are the best. I wish LOTR and Hobbit wouldn't have gone with actual movie dialogue...kinda takes away some of the wackiness of the Lego games. I'll still get it.

Hopefully they give everyone who decides to buy this very INCOMPLETE game the entire third movie as free dlc

LEGO LOTR sucked. This looks no better.
