Summary: The Good: Collecting items is fun, varied environments The Bad: Replays the movies, shallow RPG elements, boring combat, repetitive enemies, easy The LoTR franchise has been struggling in the games department since the movies came out.
Summary: The psp version and some people have said the DS as well have no co-op multiplayer. This game is quite easy yet is still somewhat fun. It would have been a whole lot more fun if we could play with a friend.I bought this thinking I could play with my son.
Summary: I finished this game in a couple hours. It's fun to play but I thought it was too easy to be great. It was really hard to lose a fight - no matter how many enemies you were fighting. The good side is that it follows the lord of the rings story.
Summary: I wanted a copy of the this little game, mostly because I am a collector of all things Tolkien-related. The game is actually pretty decent. Although not overly complex, long, or difficult, fans of the movies or books will find much to enjoy.
Summary: This is a fun hack and slash with some shooting that lets you play through many of the major events in Lord of the Rings. It embeds cut-away scenes in the action while you play and the graphics are OK.
Summary: This game looked so incredible in all the previews I saw for it, but when I got it, it became the next "Avatar". Extremely cool on consoles, horrid on handheld. This is one of those games that looks like a high school student threw together a game in a day to make a quick buck.
