Enjoyable game play but inaccurate portrayal...

  • Summary: When I purchased this game I had really high expectations for it, being a Tolkien fan and all. I was quickly disappointed when about 30 minutes into the game, I realized that the storyline is completely askew to the actual story of The Hobbit.

  • Summary: Vivendi Universal released the Fellowship of the Ring a year ago. The game was one of the most frustrating things I've ever played. Incredibly short, yet annoyingly stupid, the choices they made to change the story seemed to make no sense.

  • Summary: It's really aimed for a younger generation so it wasn't for me. I appreciate that, but I am a fan of Tolkien so saw it through to the end. Won't bother with it again, though.

Generally a mixed bag.

  • Summary: To mop up any confusion this is not a remake of the old 8 bit text RPG from the eighties (real shame) this is a brand new 3rd person action platform adventure with you in control of Bilbo Baggins It's a game I really wanted to like more than I actually do, because there are several niggling...
