Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The
The Next Level
4 November 2002
Excerpt: Considering that I've never turned more than a combined two dozen pages of all of Tolkien's works, what should've been an enlightenment course has really only convinced me to just stick to the Peter Jackson interpretations. Many scenes there were excised from the film come off as cheesy affairs, halting the game to a standstill, and the game especially hits the pavement with the Tom Bombadil character, who was gracefully thumbed past in the movie.
Excerpt: The nearly 60 year old story of Middle Earth has seen quite a few misses in the video game industry and with the wonderful rendition of the Lord of the Rings Hollywood hit, it was no question that we would be subjected to a few more. Black Label Games is one of the few so privileged to carry this burden. Never heard of them? That's exactly the thought I had when I put Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring into my PS2 CD-tray.
