Good game, but there have been better.

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.
Summary: Top value for money game, hours of addictive fun
Pros: THe gameply is excellent and addictive, the graphics are excellent, and the soundtrack fits well witht he them of the game and film. The use of the actors from the film series as voice overs adds to this, although more variety in their speech would have been better.
Cons: The levels are always exactly the same, events can be anticipated and are not random enough. the story does not match well with eitherthe book or the film, and the scenarios are created specifically for the game with one or two exceptions.
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: Universal Interactives Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring PS2 game is so awsome! You get to play as Frodo, Aragorn, and Gandalf. Frodo is very good at distracting his enemies by throwing rocks and he is very good at using stealth to hide from them (he is especially good at these skills by using them on the dark riders). Aragorn is awsome at fighting because he has very good fighting skills and a very cool sword.
Summary: "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" video game for the Sony PlayStation2 is great! 1. "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" video game for the Sony PlayStation2 has wonderful graphics, sound, gameplay, and a good storyline to offer. 2. You play as three brilliant characters.
Summary: I don't see why there are so many complaints about this PS2 game being bad! Universal Interactive's The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring is a wonderful, and one of my favorite PS2 games. The graphics are good and well detailed. The sound is crystal clear (without static) and has a great musical (score) to offer. The storyline goes by The Lord of the Rings book trilogy, by J.R.R. Tolkien, very well.
Summary: Jackson's movie was great, but he had to take liberties to squeeze it in under 3 hours. The game publisher for Fellowship had to do a little of the same, but this game follows the book much closer. This game is superb on all levels. The graphics are great (on all the consels), the music is top notch and the game play is very easy. The only knock I have is the voice acting was little dry, if not funny at some moments. If you read the book, then you know what happens.
Summary: I don't know how people can review this title when they haven't played it or based on what they've heard about the XBox game. This game was developed by a different company. It has none of the bugs that plagued the XBox version. It has a much better combat system that really brings you into the action, and fewer of the tomb-raider like puzzles from the XBox title.
For the Tolkien Fans - Should You Buy This Game...?

Summary: I have only spent some 24 hours with this remarkable game, and already I am deeply impressed. I am not writing a full review just now so much as I'm giving some first impressions of the gaming experience. I am a Tolkien zealot, let me mention this immediately. I'm the guy who loves the movie but says "That's not how it happened in the books..." every 10 seconds. My diehard fanboy status cannot be questioned. However, I'm also an avid gamer.
Summary: A great addition to the fantasy world! The story is amazing--if you have read the book, it stays true, while if you have only seen the film, you are in for a pleasant surprise (wait until the Barrow Downs). Somwehat awkward in combat, since the camera doesn't follow you always and much of the movement is based on turning the camera... but easy to get accustomed to. The initial board, where Frodo must sneak past the Dark Riders is...tedious at best.
