One ring to rule them all

  • 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 ...
  • Pros: True to the story, fun

It was fun while it lasted...

  • Summary: The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring is overall a good game to beat. It should really be 3 1/2 stars but not worthy of 4 stars. The hardest part of the game is escaping the dark riders at the beginning of the game. If you can conquer that then you can conquer anything else in the game b/c that part is the most frustrating. I bought the pre-owned game with high expectations...I'm a big fan of the N64 game Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

Mediocre game

  • Summary: Okay, gamers are really tough on this game. Hey, I don't blame them, it's supposed to be a top-notch game just like the Lord of the Rings movies and books. And I would have to agree with the gamers. Rent this one only if you are a true fan, and only buy this game if you're a total LOTR freak, like me. I even bought the guide. Okay enough about me...

The Quest for the Ring Begins

  • Summary: If you've only seen the movie and have never read the novel, then you should buy or at least rent this game. It's a good summary of the story and includes a lot of things that weren't in the movie. Here's a spoiler on one of those different things: Frodo, Sam, Merry, and Pippen didn't actually go straight from Buckleberry Ferry to Bree on their journey; they went to the Old Forest and met Tom Bombadill(the eldest being) and his wife Goldberry=they were also attacked by a...

Bored of the rings yet

  • Excerpt: "...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. All is not well in Middle Earth ...
  • Pros: Follows the book closely
  • Cons: Too short and linear

The Hitchhiker's Guide to Middle Earth

Collingwo..., Ciao
22 January 2003
  • Excerpt: "...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 differences if you have seen the film ...
  • Pros: Figures well animated, Save at any point, Three characters to play
  • Cons: Annoying camera angles, Too short and too easy

3 stars for the casual player, 4 for the devoted Tolkien fan

  • Summary: It is very difficult to rate this game - as a lifelong fan of Tolkien I want to lavish praise, because the subject matter is strong, the atmospheres match up perfectly to those that I imagined in the book, and the plot is followed rather faithfully. However, as a video game, it doesn't translate into more than a few hours of suspenseful, challenging fun - though I thoroughly enjoyed my trip through Middle Earth in this game.
