the fellowship

  • 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 ...
  • Pros: this game is both adventure and battle
  • Cons: it is an older game

The First of three

  • 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 ...
  • Pros: You can go anywhere you want when you want
  • Cons: Only one player mode

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.

A Very Good Adventure and Action Game

Nancy Pingree-Pahel, Amazon
30 December 2003
  • 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.

Matt Mabry, Amazon
21 December 2003
  • 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.

Great Game... but missing something

Chris, Amazon
1 July 2003
  • 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.

Frodo gets down!!

Amazon
26 June 2003
  • Summary: I'm a big fan of these movies and it's great to see a game that plays and looks so well. I beat the game and let me just say I had a wonderful time!!! What's cool is the characters. Being able to play Aragorn, Gandalf and Frodo is so awesome. It's been a while since I read the books, but the game is pretty close to the book. What was strange was Tom Bombadil and the tree level, but, nevertheless, it was great!! The music and the effects are just awesome!!

only for fans

  • Excerpt: "...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. It is quite addictive, but only a game that you will play once ...
  • Pros: absolutely wonderful if you are a Lord of the rings fan
  • Cons: Not suitable for younger children

Well done

  • Summary: I got a good impression of this game from the get-go. It begins with you as Frodo in The Shire. I was enchanted with the lovely and appropriate music that set the mood for The Shire. And graphically, The Shire looked so peaceful and tranquil, what with the pumpkin patches and the rolling green fields, that I wished I could go there and escape this world. A very good first impression indeed!

A Tolkien zealot's opinion...

Ben Tdot, Amazon
3 November 2002
  • Summary: Let me begin this review by proclaiming proudly that I am at once an avid gamer, and a J.R.R. Tolkien fanatic. I was instantly skeptical about a game based upon Tolkien's works, as all past offerings have been lackluster and unworthy of their source materials. Still, video games couldn't be more vastly different from novels, so I knew that to make a game of a novel, liberties would have to be taken to some extent in favor of the gameplay.
