Summary: Spent a lot of time playing this game and love it. Had it originally on the PS2, but then a brother and time got to it and scratched it. Brilliant for the Lord of the Rings nerds, or people looking for a decent turn based RPG.
Summary: I played this game for a short while, and then put it away. I only rediscovered it a few months later, began to play it again, and instantly got addicted. The game is truly excellent. The storyline is good, the areas to explore are interesting, and the battles, although turn based, do involve a fair bit of strategy.
Good ,Getting better,And then its just... well....BAD

Summary: At first many think this game is exelent and adictive and they are right.You are amazed by grapics and great gameplay and when you are out of moria it is a very good game.But and it is a big but the game goes downhill fron then on. the gameplaay becomes more vivd and it less satisfying. is bareable until helms deep and then BOOOM!!
Summary: Its good with all new characters and scenes. the graphics are quite decent and the attacks are good. there is one problem, this is that the gameplay is too slow. the new battle system takes too long but i find the slash 'em up style used in the return of the king better.
Summary: Linear RPG with turn-based combat. Follows story parallel to the original works. Well realised new characters, fun to play alongside Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli and Gandalf. Great meeting the Balrog, Nazgul and Mumakil to battle. Gets a bit boring around middle (Plains of Rohan), but worth playing through for Helms Deep and Minas Tirith. Good dialogue on characters, lots of footage from films - some original clips.
Summary: This game is, in many ways, a welcome relief from the 'slash 'em up' lord of the rings games that preceded it. An alternate storyline is presented, with new characters that can interact with ones from the movies, e.g. Gandalf and Aragorn. The battle system is fun and the random battles are not overly frequent, as is the case in many RPGs. The graphics are good, and the score comes straight out of the movies.
Summary: Played through the first 25% or so in six hours last night. It's pretty good, but let down by being: 1. Too linear 2. Too easy Nice graphics, great presentation, impressive fight sequences, but it's almost impossible to die. I played on the default medium setting and only died once, when I first met the boss at the end of the Moria level. Second time, I killed him.
