The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age
6 April 2011
Excerpt: If you're looking for the same game like the two film tie ins then you're looking in the wrong place. Like many reviewers who have bought this game thinking that, you may be disappointed. I actually prefer strategy RPGs over the usual hack n slash but it seems most don't.
Pros: Great mix of game play and easy to learn compared to others that fall under the same genre
Excerpt: I wouldnt recomend this game atall!!! Yes the graphics are quite good and the senery is mainly LOTR areas but not only does it not follow the LOTR charactors but it is repetitive and boring! The charactors are on a different quest from the LOTR ones but they still come to most of the same trouble!
Excerpt: The game is based around the LOTR world and the main plot of the films, although coming at them from a different angle. Instead of following the Fellowship of the Ring from the film, the focus is on a second party of heros who are following a similar part for different reasons.
Excerpt: This is an interesting version of the LOTR. It starts you playing as a ranger, meeting up with a she-elf and a dwarf to begin your quest into the world of Middle Earth. The plot follows the original films but via a parallel path, intergrating the two paths at key points throughout the game.
Excerpt: I put this game on and got to my first battle and noticed with dismay that its a turn based game....then i started playing!!! PLOT: The game is based loosely around the two towers, but playing as 6 completely different characters.
Pros: great graphics, moves, weapons, and excitement levels !
Excerpt: Game Info Genre = Role Playing Game Developer = E.A Games Publisher = Electronic Arts Players = 1-2 Online = No Age = 12+ Released = November 2004 --------------------------------------------------------------- In this LOTR game you do not play any of the main characters but as other warriors.
Pros: Has some nice detail, good looking areas and good effects .
Cons: Can get boring very quickly, don't feel like a real RPG
