My son pre-ordered Lego Lord of the Rings for Wii from Amazon with his paper route money. He says it is one of the best Lego games he's ever played. Unlike the other Lego games, this one has actual speaking in it, directly from the dialog in the movies, which is very fun. The little cut scenes inbetween gameplay are hilarious, and it's fun to play as the different characters, or even make a new character that looks like you but with a hobbit body. If you've got a boy in the 8-12 year age range to shop for, this is a good choice for a christmas gift.
