Welcome to the world of Lego games! This new installment of Lego franchise makes us jump right into the tales of J.R.R. Tolkien's most famous book collection. Everything a LOTR fan found in the movies and books can be find here, adapted to younger audiences and to be playable.
Like Lego Batman 2, this game also features dialogues, taken right from the movies, and they work great to provide a more impressive experience.

As for the gameplay, it's quite simple and straightforward. You should have no challenges with finding collectibles and going through the story. There are no missable trophies, but you will need to repeat some stages at least twice to get everything for 100% completion.

The multiplayer games are do via Ad-Hoc mode only, which means you will need two PS Vita devices in order to play multiplayer with a friend. Luckily enough, there's not a single multiplayer trophy.

There are some differences between this version and the PS3 version, as there are no minikits to find and some character's abilities are changed or removed - but, in essence, it's a true Lego game.

Controls in this game are quite simple and intuitive. The only instance that deserves mention is to change characters while in Free-play mode. You need to touch the shield icon on the screen while changing characters with L or R in order to access the characters screen.


Step 1 (Play through the game):
Plain and simple. Just head direct into story mode and play it to its end. You don't need to focus too much on finding collectibles or getting true adventurer on every stage, but you will get some if you want, as there are some pretty easy to find that doesn't require any other character aside the ones you're playing. If you do, you can return to any previous unlocked hub and try to unlock red bricks from characters, by delivering the said treasure (but keep in mind that some characters require more than one and, seeing that it's almost impossible to get all of the required ones on the first playthrough, I would save it for later) - See Collectibles Guide for more information about treasures and characters linked to them.
Also, take note to win all minigames when you are on certain hubs. See trophy description below.

Step 2 (Free-play mode):
After you have completed the game once, all stages will be available to be played in free-play mode. This mode lets you select your character at will, to fit whatever situation you need to overcome in order to get collectibles. To do this, you need to press or and touch the Shield icon at the end of the character's line. You will need to complete every stage again in order to find all character profiles, treasures and unlock all characters. Also, during your run, buy all hints you can (they are cheap, only 500 studs each). You really need to buy them in order to get 100% of the game.

The first thing you should do though is head direct to "The Dark Ride on the Road" warp point and complete the stage on free-play, looking for treasures. You'll find Old Took's Diamonds during this run. Deliver it to Paladin Took and take the first red brick you'll get, x2 stud multiplier, making the run for True Adventurer even easier (remember you need at least 100,000 Lego pieces in order to buy it). You can complete any stage in any way you want. Remember that some red bricks you want will need you to deliver more than one treasure to a said person, and they are always apart from one another.

Tip of the Day: Always have Gimli as one of your characters. This way, you can use his Bullrush attack (hold ) to travel quickly through stages and hubs, saving you time. Just make sure you don't head to walls, rocks and other hard (indestructible) structures.

Step 3 (Clean Up):
If you have missed anything at the end of free-play mode, now it's time to return to the said level and collect what you've forgotten. There are some collectibles that take a while to figure out how to get, but nothing too hard.

There's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo.
Deliver all the treasure items. 

See "My precious!"

There and back again.
Get 100%. (Single Player Only) (8) 

To get 100% in the game, you will need to complete the game on story mode, get True Adventurer in every level, find all collectibles, deliver all treasures AND buy every character, red brick and hint in shops. If you are struggling with few Lego studs, you can replay "The Bridge of Khazad-dûm" chapter, with at least x2, x4 and x6 red bricks active and, at the end of the level when you are falling, try grabbing as much blue and purple Lego studs as you can (multiplied by, now, 48).

For more information, see the Collectibles Guide.

Of all the inquisitive Hobbits...
Collect all the Character Profiles. (4) 

See "My precious!"

Not with 10,000 men could you do this...
Unlock all characters. (Single Player Only) (2) 

In order to get this trophy, you only need to find all character's tokens scattered throughout the world. You don't need to buy them. You can see how many character's tokens you've collected in a said location, as well as how many that location has, by pressing .

See "My Precious" and "There and Back Again" for more information.

I think I'm quite ready for another adventure!
Achieve True Adventurer in every level. (Single Player Only) (1) 

There are a set number of studs you need to collect in order to get True Adventurer to pop up at the screen. Everytime you die, you lose all studs if you are below 1100, or 1100 (a blue and a golden stud) if you are above this number. However, after you've gotten True Adventurer, this status won't disappear, even if you lose all your studs.

To make things easier, you can buy multiplier red bricks. They come as x2, x4, x6, x8 and x10. The best thing is, like every other Lego game I've played, they stack, so at the end you'll have a x7680 multiplier.

Here's a list of all adventure levels you need to complete, as well as how many studs you'll need to get True Adventurer:

  • The Last Battle of the Alliance: 15,000
  • The Dark Rider on The Road: 20,000
  • The Camp at the Weathertop: 30,000
  • Moria: Balin's Tumb: 20,000
  • Moria: Bridge of Khazad-dûm: Didn't take note (will fill later)
  • The Skirmish at Amon Hen: 30,000
  • The Taming of Gollum: 30,000
  • Tracking the Hobbits: 35,000
  • The Battle of Helm's Deep: 20,000
  • The Paths of The Dead: 50,000
  • Shelob's Lair: 30,000
  • The Battle of Pelennor Fields : 40,000
  • Journey's End: 40,000

Note that you can't get True Adventurer on Hubs.

[Tip given by LadyKatala] If you didn't get True Adventurer before, and started to make a run on Free-play mode using stud multipliers, as soon as you see True Adventurer popping up on the screen, you can quit the stage, and you will still get it.

Hobbits really are amazing creatures.
Complete all the HUB mini games. 

You only need to complete all hub mini games once to unlock this. They are:
* Chicken catch, at The Shire;
* Musical notes, at Rivendell;
* Archery, at Lothlorien;
* Musical notes, at Lothlorien;
* Horse Masters Attack, at Rohan;
* Mark of the Ranger, at Minas Tirith;
* Archery again, at Mordor.

Once you complete all, the trophy should unlock. You will surely get this trophy while going for "There and Back Again", as you need the collectibles that are prizes for beating them.

And away he goes, Precious!
Use Smeagol to defeat Gollum when Gollum is the buddy. (14) 

You'll get Gollum when you finish "The Taming of Gollum", and you will get Smeagol as a character token (if I'm not mistaken, it costs 10,000 studs). Simple put one character as Smeagol, other as Gollum and use Smeagol to smash Gollum to a rub of bricks. The trophy should unlock immediately afterwards.

What about second breakfast?
Complete Weathertop in Free Play. 

The description is very clear. After you've completed Weathertop on Story mode, it will be available to be played in Free-play mode. It can be accessed from Bree, at the far north after you enter the gate from the Shire (simply follow the road straight). Once you are given the choice between story or free-play mode, choose free-play and COMPLETE the stage (you need to reach its end). The trophy should unlock at the status screen.

That still only counts as one!
Defeat an Oliphaunt as Legolas. 

Can not be missed. When you're playing "The Battle at The Pelennor" once you shift to Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli, as they arrive at the battlefield, simply head up and eliminate every orc you see (or not, your choice). You will then see an Oliphaunt blocking the way. Use Legolas's bow to shoot its knee, swing on the bar, and jump on a support, then use it to grab the rope. Climb up it and, when you are inside the tower-like structure, head left and onto the plank. Automatically, Legolas will jump onto the oliphaunt's head and shoot it. The trophy pops up immediately afterwards.

Secret Trophies
One does not simply walk into Mordor...
Simply walk into Mordor. (Single Player Only) (4) 

You need to complete the game on story mode first. Then, when you are given control over your character, press Select, enter the World map (by touching the "Map" icon on the bottom right) and select The city of Osgiliath. Now, the gate in front of "Shelob's Lair" warp point will be opened. Simply enter it (it reads "To the land of Mordor") and the trophy should pop immediately.

The last laugh.
Use Tom Bombadil's laugh to destroy Sauron in Free play. (6) 

To get Tom Bombadil, enter "The Black Rider on the Road" using the warp point in the Shire. Then, select free-play and when you get to the bridge, destroy some flowers at the the low edge of the road. You should see a soft spot where you will need to interact with using Aragorn (any). You will be directed to go back to another soft spot, and then to a little grassed area. Use Sam (any) to plant something there and, once it blossoms, use a wizard to open it up. You should get Tom Bombadil now.

To get Sauron, enter "Journey's End" using the warp point in Mordor. Select free-play mode. Then, after the battle at the Black Gate, when you get to a place where you need to use Sam (elven rope) to pull some structures from the wall in front of you (the right one will disassemble with the fall), head right and use Merry to fish a mordor chest. Then, use Aragorn (Anduril or Royal armor) to open it up. You should get Sauron now. Head to any hub, buy both of them, select one character as Tom and the other as Sauron and, as Tom, press next to Sauron and it's done.
