Summary: I love how this game is made off of the book and not off of the movie. A lot of the storylines of the games I play are based on the movie, which can make scenes overexaggerated and off topic. The graphics of this game were okay, typical Playstation 2 glitches but for the most part the graphics were fine. The levels were fairly large and you can roam around a little, especially in the shire.
Summary: I remember when I first got this game with my father way back when I was younger; he bought it originally for himself but then got bored and gave it to me (my dad's more into shooter games). I also remember all the hours I put into trying to beat it. Going back to the game now, I gotta say that it still has the flare and awesomeness that made it intriguing to me when I first played it. One can never forget trying to sneak past the Black Riders.....
Summary: If you are a major fan of just the movies, then, yes, you will probably hate this game. However, if you are familiar with the books, then you might be able to appreciate it. Yes, it is not similar to the Fellowship of the Ring movie: I think the first major difference is the characters - they do not look like the actors in the movies, nor are their voices played by the movie actors. This might be a huge disappointment for those who are fans of the actors in the movies.
Excerpt: "The lord of the rings the fellowship of the ring is a great game as it is combining bothe adventure and combat. In this game you will come into contact and be involved in many different battles with the orcs. If you havent ever watched the film this is still a great game to play as it will tell you the storyline as you play through both videos and the characters. The videos are great as they show the best bits of the film leaving out the boring parts ...
Excerpt: "...J.R.R Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings - The Fellowship of the Ring" is an absolute epic which is now also a blockbuster movie. The book is massive - hundreds of pages (over a thousand depending on the version) and the uncut version of the film is over 4 hours long. So, I was slightly disappointed when I completed the PS2 game in about 5 or 6 hours (over a period of days). Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed playing this game but considering it ...
Excerpt: "The Lord Of The Rings The Fellowship Of The Ring(LOTRFOTR) is my personal favourite of the trilogy of the films and games . This game is my very favourite of the three as it is the most difficult , biggest , best grphics , good gameplay and you can do things at your own pace as you have to make your own way to where your going unlike the two later games that are just in set levels . There are many missions and the game sticks to the film all the way ...
Summary: This is absolutley terrible, what were they thinking? The graphics alone rank! I shouldn't even refer to them as graphics but rather "cartoon" graphics. The mission and storyline are bogus and lame. I dare anyone who says this is a great game to play EA's Two Tower or Return of the King then play this one.
Summary: First off, I give this game 5, yet say that there are better games out there, because this game is very good. There are over 80 games for the PS2. Once in a while you come across one that is beathtaking, but for everyday game play, this is great! It starts off kind of slow and there isn't a lot of fighting but it is challenging after that. The fight scenes are excellent and the graphics are good.
Why people only like the games based off the movie is stupid

Summary: This game is rather better than I expected, I thought that it was just going to be a spin off the movie, but by a different company. But actually this made by the same people that made the animated version of lord of the rings. Which I am a fan of, I liked this because this better describes the hobbits and is more colorful than the movie games. This is a superb game, I just wish that you could go a little more off-road than the game allows.
Summary: The first surprise I had when I started to play this game was that it was made by a different company, so if you have any other Lord of the Ring games, the graphics are very, very different. the second surprise was that the lines are really taken from the book rather than the movie, so for fans of the movie who have not read the book, it may seem as if they've made a mistake. The movie, for the most part, follows the book, but goes astray in several places.
