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.
A great start to what would lead up to 2 great games.

Summary: The Lord of the Rings: Te Fellowship of the Ring is the game that spawned all of the hype about the Loard fo the Rings games that got progressively better, The Two towers was great but the Return of the King topped it all off. But the Fellowship of the Ring is a lot of fun too, it's just like the 2 sequels, but a little bit worse, of course it was a great start, and in fact, this game is a lot of fun, considering how loathly it seems compared to it's spawn.
Summary: This is a fantastic RPG. True, it's not very long, but length does not always translate into greatness. And any complaint about how this game deviates from the book is completely beside the point. I hardly think we ought to complain that the designers don't have us planning Bilbo's birthday party and preparing to leave the Shire for the space of a decade or so (I forget exactly how long it is) and walking virtually unmolested to Buckland.
Summary: Ok, I am a big time Tolkien Buff. I've read all the books: The Silmarillion, The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings... the lost tales, EVERYTHING Tolkien wrote that had to do with Middle Earth. With that said, I'd have to say I was a little disappointed in this game because it just seemed to be missing something. While this game is 10 times better than the "Two Towers" based on the movie, it lacks something that I can't exactly place.
