Summary: If your a die hard Lotr fan ok with turn based moves in the game then you'll love it. I got the disc only, and it had a part of the case in okay condition. The games story is the battles from LOTR. like you would expect, so heres the pros and cons on this game. Pros: * gives what it is made for, being in charge of the battles and play as both mordor and the fellowship. * has Movie cutscenes and music/ sound effects.
Summary: I got this game because I really liked The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age for Gameboy Advance and after some research I discovered that Tactics has very similar gameplay. (so if you enjoyed The Third Age for GBA, you'll like this). I'm satisfied with the game. The pros are: - The ability to zoom in and see units up close with pretty good graphics, or zoom out and observe most of the battlefield.
Summary: This game is a very good strategy game for those people who have the PSP. The price was very reasonable. It has cool cut scenes from the movie. The PSP is sorely missing games like this. I would recommend this to any Lord of the Rings and strategy RPG fans.
Summary: LOTR Tactics is currently out of print and the collector prices are skyrocketing. Most of the reviews appear to be from 2006 and earlier. LOTR Tactics isn't a bad game, and I enjoyed playing it. However, this game could've been better and lacks replay value. I would advise people interested in this PSP game to pick up a used copy, Gamestop sells them for around $4.99.
Summary: Lots of people have given this game 5 stars, why? In a nut shell this is the best game on the PSP at time of writing. Great graphics, fantastic game play. I bought my PSP a year ago and have not used it much because of the many very poor games out there for it. LORT has change that. Thank you LORT team for bring me this wonderful game!

Summary: Lord of the Rings Tactics lets you enjoy a strategy romp through the world of Aragorn and Legolas on your PSP. The turn-based system allows you to take your time and explore the layout thoroughly before making your moves and decisions. You're allowed to play as the "good" or "bad" side in a number of situations from the movie. They even have actual movie footage introducing the scenes, so you really get to feel as if you're immersed in the action.
Summary: I love tactics games and LOTR, so bought this one by instinct without reading any review. The game didn't disappoint me, is very fun, fast paced and the animation is amazing, besides the strategy and planning your moves you will enjoy just by looking the characters executing the attacks and spells.
