This is the first Lego game I've tried (well, other than the iOS version of Lego Harry Potter, which has a very different style of gameplay), and I love it! I've completed the story, but there is still so much to do in freeplay mode (I believe the "completion" - in terms getting all the collectibles - was only at something like 20% when I finished the story). My favourite part is that when you're not in a chapter, you can literally walk from the Shire all the way to Mordor and back (if you don't get lost or distracted on the way). The world is huge and incredibly detailed, and I could probably spend hours just wondering around admiring the scenery. My only qualm is that - while figuring out how to progress or find objects to complete quests can be a challenge - completing the story is sometimes too easy in the sense that there doesn't seem to be a way that I've found that you can actually "lose" and have to go back to the last checkpoint (possibly unless you've died so many times you managed to lose ALL your studs but I feel like you'd have to be extraordinarily bad for that to happen). But really, that's a minor detail in the grand scheme of things. The game is fun and can keep my attention for hours (not many games can claim that). I highly recommend it for any Lord of the Rings fan.
