LEGO The Lord of the Rings Hits the Mac App Store

LEGO The Lord of the Rings, which was released for consoles and PCs late last year, has finally made its way to the Mac.

The game, which is based on The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, incorporates events from all three of the movies. It features actual film dialogue along with RPG elements that are not present in other LEGO games, such as an expanding inventory and open world exploration.

$30??!!! are they Nuts! I hope this isn't a sign of things to come.
No wonder people pirate games. $30 for a ported Lego game is unbelievable.


Did we not all used to pay $69.99 and up 20 years ago for ****** super nintendo games? When people bitch about game prices these days it blows my mind. A cheap original gameboy game used to be $29.99

What the hell is wrong with $30 for a proper 3D game? Everyone's obsessed with iOS app pricing these days.

Are these LEGO games actually any good?


Yes, I've played quite a few of them, there isn't one I haven't enjoyed yet. This LOTR one is frequently hilarious if you love the films on which it's based, it's good to see it on the mac (though I won't be buying unless it gets cheaper, because I have the PS3 version already). Obviously if you hate LOTR and/or Lego there's not a lot of point playing it though.

I hope the 'Mac App Store' will provide the Simcity game for Macs later this year as well :-( I don't have any disc-drive @home... EA if you reading this, plzz


EA can't hear you over there piles of evil money.

They took all they're recent games off steam making Battlefield 3 and Mass Effect 3 irritating to load up.

Unless people actually just start boycotting EA games completely until thing change, they never will.

That's exactly what I've started doing after the latest FIFA screw up, I'm done with EA.

Lego LOTR isn't on Steam for Mac yet. I prefer to play the PC version and then download the Mac version free when it become available. That way, if the Mac port is crappy I can always bootcamp back to Windows to play. Also, graphics performance is still sadly lacking on the Mac compared to the exact same game on Windows.

Don't get me started on Microsoft and directX! :P

But at least Valve will get OpenGL a better standing by using Linux as their front runner in the near future.

Some of the recent ones have had good reviews; but I've always been skeptical.


My kids (7 and almost 9) absolutely LOVE LEGO Harry Potter. I will confess to enjoying it very much also.

They're not aimed at hardcore gamers -- which is actually a big reason I enjoy them: they're fun without being stressful. (I am terrible at "hardcore" games.)
