Amazing fun, but not well spread out

Summary: The game is amazing fun with a reasonably different approach to the standard open-world kill-everything. The powers the main character "develops" are fun and interesting, if badly spread out in when many of them are received. I would suggest reading/watching some professional reviews to see what you think of the game before purchasing it. That being said, some of the basics of my experience are given here.
Shows a worse consideration for canon than "Han Solo Shot First" deniers

Summary: Okay game. Inconsistencies between game and real canon, which I will go into in the spoiler section. The bad: - Terrible music. And it plays in the background behind other music and dialogue during cutscenes and NEVER EFFING STOPS. THE SAME REPETITIVE TRACK OF HORNS AND DRUMS PLAYED THROUGHOUT EVERY SECOND OF THE ENTIRE GAME I WANTED TO VOMIT. - The unnecessary loading screens between mission objectives being shown (i.e.
Summary: Game is good the majority of the time but there are a few things you need to prepare yourself for if you get this for a PS3... There are glitches, sometimes the speech isn't insinque with the lips, and the game play can get pretty repetitive. Over all its an average Lord of the Rings game with some interesting character flare and play on the storyline of the Lord of the Rings. I would still recommend it for any collector and recommend playing this game at least once.
Summary: Excellent game with highly detailed environment. Lots of Middle Earth lore. The storyline is what was best as it really tied in to the rest of the Middle Earth saga and not just another patch add on but a story with great characters and even some surprises. I just have one negative, the ending was too easy and some of the gameplay was repetitive, but most video games are repetitive. Anyway, hours of fun.
Summary: Do NOT buy this game for PS3. This game was developed for the newer generation consoles and should never have released it on anything but those consoles. Loading screens take forever, even going to and from menu screens has significant lag. Cut scenes where there is dialog is glitchy and sometimes won't play video at all. It is very annoying. Disclaimer: The game itself is an awesome game, don't misunderstand me. I traded it in and bought a PS4 just to play this game.
Summary: Great game, very smooth controls, basically a better version of Assassin's creed. The PS3 version is a bit laggy, so don't be suprised, it only really effects the menu's though, in game works just fine.
Summary: I've played this game through three times completely, to 100% -- although once I was cheating. I can tell you this: it's far better on the PC, assuming you have a fast system. The PS3 version is a disaster for several reasons: 1. The loading times are long and frequent! Get ready to spend a long time staring at a black screen. 2. The mechanics of the Playstation controller work against you.
Summary: This was the worst purchase that i ever made... it was a deception when i see the game graphics for ps3... and the worst part was... that i cant play the game because it lags a lot! And this problem not only happens with my device...
