Summary: I was very excited to get this game and thought I would thoroughly enjoy it - but I was wrong. The instructions are poor as is the lighting. Once you get to Weathertop, you'll need a miracle to defeat the wraiths. I gave up after trying for nearly 2 weeks. You do not have the option of skipping to the next level. If you can't get past that mission, you're basically done with the game. If you need further proof just google "aragorns quest cannot defeat wraiths".
Summary: AVOID THIS GAME AT ALL COSTS! For one, the controls are anything but controllable. The game is great until you get to weathertop. Then you're stuck. You cannot defeat the wraiths. Bug or not - I just don't see it possible and I'm not alone. Not to mention the game kept freezing at loading weathertop. If you want a great LOTR game, stick with the LEGO one.
Summary: I got this game as a LOTR fan and it is horrible. I wanted to break it in 3/4s of the disk it used to be. The graphics suck for a 2010 game and it plays out like a baby's game that you find in a McDonald's happy meal.
Summary: This game was advertised as an adult game. When I played the game I was grossly disappointed due to the fact that it is actually stupid and very childish and geared toward the 10 years of age range.
Summary: We are new to PS3 in our house, having enjoyed Wii for years. Our daughter saved her own money to buy the PS3 and this was her first game. She does not have Move and I'm not sure she wants it. When she tried to play the game it would not work without Move. IF it does, it doesn't come with directions on how to play it with just PS3.
Summary: I have been gaming and writing about games for over 23 years. Ever since I can remember, one of the things I loved writing about was ports. They are very interesting to examine since it takes a lot to make a good port. Often we get ports that are inferior to the original. Every once in a while we get one that is better, like Bioshock or Mass Effect 2 on the PS3.
