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.
Excerpt: Publisher: Black Label Games Category: Adventure I imagine you're all aware that 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).
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 .
Excerpt: Having just completed Final Fantasy X after 6 months I was looking for a new challenge so decided to give Lord of the Rings : The Fellowship of the Ring a go. I was able to buy it pre-owned in Game so bought it at £24.97 instead of £29.99 the current retail price. Buying it on pre-owned is just as good as brand new, you can still return it if you hate it and you have a number of months to realise that the game has been damaged.
Excerpt: This game is really good for fans of the book and/or films. It combines strategy with combat. One of the most interesting parts if you are a fan, is taking a virtual tour throug the hobbit village. Highly recommended for fans, but probably not suitable for people who are not familiar with the story. Again, it is not suitable for younger children as some of the scenes and characters are quite scary.
Pros: absolutely wonderful if you are a Lord of the rings fan
Excerpt: This game is based on J R R Tolkien’s first book in the series Lord of the Rings (LOTR) - the fellowship of the rings. Those familiar with the movie and not the book, will be a little lost as the game follows the book more strictly than the movie. The game is a pretty standard RPG / action game that follows the journey of Frodo in the world of LOTR. The plot follows the book pretty closely, although there are some differences to be noted.
Excerpt: "One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them, one ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them". As the title of this game suggests, The Fellowship of the Ring (henceforth TFOTR), is a game based on the first instalment of Tolkien's Lord of The Rings trilogy. It is produced by Black Label Games and markets itself as being an official product of Tolkien Enterprises - it is based on the literary work rather than the blockbuster film, so you will notice a few...
Pros: Figures well animated, Save at any point, Three characters to play
Cons: Annoying camera angles, Too short and too easy
Summary: With the looming release of the blockbuster in the making next installment of the Lord of the Rings film series, it was inevitable that the license would be delved into video games. The recent wave of LOTR licensed games have ranged from great (LOTR: The Two Towers for PS2) to godawful (LOTR: Fellowship of the Ring for GameBoy Advance), and here we have The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring for the PS2.
Summary: I was excited to see this game come out, and even more so when I heard it followed the book more than the movie. I was a fan of the books long before the movies came out. Props to Surreal for throwing in the Barrow Wights and Tom Bombadil. BUT, that was all that earned this one any stars. If you really are a hard-core Tolkien buff, you may want it, but not as a challenging game. Even strays from the story QUITE a bit in some places (i.e., the ending).
Summary: This may not be the worst game of the year for the PS2, but it is certainly one of the most disappointing. Let's cut right to the chase, because I only have 1,000 words to describe how bad it is. Short. Really short! The movie was almost longer (almost).I didn't use a stopwatch, but I would estimate I beat it in about 6 hours. The levels were all very small and fragmented, so there wasn't a very good flow to the game.
