Summary: Single player, I couldn't start the first Sauron encounter, all characters had to be in the field area...I literally pushed one character onto the field, repeatedly killing him and he resurrected a bit further onto the play area. The encounter began. Then the next scene required the characters to traverse a stream...one character could not be controlled, so progress STOPPED. I see in forums where people restart the game and MAYBE it works.
Summary: You NEED a gamepad to play this on PC if you don't want the fingers on your left hand falling off. It's terribly optimized for the PC. You cannot use the mouse AT ALL, even for an attack button. Try playing an entire game while trying to aim with WASD. Ugh, just play the prologue and you'll immediately see what I mean. I should not have to buy a controller to play a PC game.
