Summary: This game is honestly a great game. I love the playthrough (storyline is eh...) and overall enjoyed the game thoroughly. Here's why I gave this game a 1. The glitches are enormous in this game. Usually, you may find one to two minor glitches (a few major ones) in an average game. This game has more glitches than I have ever faced in my life. There are two MAJOR glitches that are luck if you don't hit them. There is the Mirkwood glitch and the Nordinbad glitch.
Summary: this is a great game except for the glitch everyone else is talking about well heres what i did i got to the same spot of the glitch so i started over with a different character this time i made it through only on 6-1 there is yet another glitch so as of right now taking game back tomorrow and trading it on maybe on dragon age
Summary: This game is good except for one huge problem. there is a bug around chapter 5 when you are in Mirkwood after defeating the spider queen. no matter who i talk to or what i do i can not progress through the game. i have looked up solutions online and it appears hundreds of other players have ran into this game breaking bug. I recommend saving your money and NOT buying this game until they have come out with a patch to fix this.
Conclusion: Your first impression of the game is good. Nice graphics, reasonable music, great multi-player options. The storyline is basic and linear - but it is good enough for it not to detract from the overall game experience. Once you play the game for any length of time you will find yourself put into one of three camps: *those who can play error free *those who can play but with some major errors *those who cannot play at all due to the severity of the game breaking errors.
Excerpt: "...being a huge Lord of the Rings fan and from the back of the box it seemed very impressive. However, I could not have been more disappointed. If you are a fan of the films and books then I suggest you avoid this game at all costs! The game is based in Hobbiton and Samwise Gamgee is telling his children about his adventure with Frodo. You start of as Frodo, Sam's son, and have to carry out a series of pointless tasks. Eventually, you can then play ...
Summary: Jag köpte spelet på PS store för 99 kr. Fastän jag läst och hört mycket negativt om det så tänkte jag att jag skulle skaffa mig en egen uppfattning. Efter att ha spelat en stund så tycker jag nog att det kan vara värt 99 kr men inte en krona mer. Hela spelet kändes otrovärdigt (om man kan säga så om ett lotr-spel), känns som att dom inte la ner speciellt mycket energi på det. Alltid velat ha ett riktigt bra lotr-spel men det verkar inte bli av. Synd!
