Summary: This game has a wonderful concept at play. You get to play as one of the most popular LOTR characters, Aragon and you additionally have the option to play as Gandalf if you play Co-op. I love the idea behind the game. I like the colors, the weapons and the detailing many of the main characters. The game can get quite addicting because you get to hack and slash opponents to bits. The game is cartoony and not gore-related at all.
Summary: My 14yo daughter loves it and plays for hours. Graphics aren't too shabby for an inexpensive game. It sounds intense as there are a lot of battle scenes and cartoon violence. Wouldn't be letting my 9 yo play it but for an older kid and the price, go for it.
Summary: If this game was just your average adventure game, I'd probably give it 1-2 stars. Because I am a LOTR fan, it gets 4. This game has PLENTY of issues that keep it from being a good game... But if you are a fan of the series, there is still plenty of fun to have in this game. Running around The Shire is pointless, but it's fun! Getting on a horse and riding around Edoras (i think that's what it's called) was a good time!
Summary: If lord of the rings is one of most favorite movie or book series than go for this game it has sweet battles and a good story line but the loading does take awhile. Just because the game takes a little time in between the levels doesn't mean its a bad game that other review guy sounded negative but this is a positive game. Go for it if your a fan like me.
Summary: This game is very god as far as something to play with the family. Relatively simple controls, easy story line to get through, none of the quests are too difficult etc. At the same time, the action scenes of the game can get rather intense, especially when someone joins the game as Gandalf. Parts of the game definitely could of been better. I would give it a 6.5 out of 10. Not a great game, but not bad at all. Great if you are getting something for the kids.
Summary: My son has really enjoyed this game. I noticed it did not get very good reviews from the bigger gaming magazines but those are usually done for a different generation of gamers. My son, who is 9, has really enjoyed playing this game. The co-op play is a nice touch so Mom can join in (Hacking away with the motion controller was really tiresome though so I switched to the regular controller). My son loved using the "Move" controller.
Summary: Being a huge LOTR fan I played this over the weekend for the PS3 and have been totally addicted to it. Is it perfect? Not even close! For starters it makes a pretty bad first impression, the opening prologue/prelude battle really sucks, all you do is run around and swing your sword, you don't have all of the other abillities or weapons that you will pick up over the course of the game or at least if you do have them you don't know how to use them yet, the hit detection...
