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.
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: 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.
