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: I enjoyed playing this game. If you look past the bad graphics, it's actually a pretty good game. It goes by the story line exactly, you can play Co-op, and there are cool items and lore you can find. You buy upgrades with the money you find, and you can do different moves with your sword. You also have a bow and arrow with flame arrows, a torch, and a shield you can bash with.
Summary: Being a hardcore gamer, I was not expecting much as I had read some shaky reveiws. I found the game very enjoyable. Sure the graphics could use some work, but the overall gameplay was great. Please give this game a chance!!
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...
Summary: I'm writing this review about the game using Playstation Move. (it can also be played with a standard controller) The game is actually pretty fun so far. I'm only about 3 hours into it and it seems like one of those games that you get more into as you go. I'm liking it alot so far. For the first 15 mins I was thinking, "omg...this is stupid".
Summary: it ok not as good as the third age but the second best one the gameplay is pretty good it is about how sam is telling his kids about Aragorn and its cool because two people can can play at once i recommend it
