EA has screwed a good thing up again!

C. Bergman, Amazon

  • Summary: Overall it's a good game that keeps you wanting to play the next mission. It's also fairly difficult which is a good thing (I usually have to play each level twice before beating it).

Oh well

Roman Konopatskiy, Amazon
3 August 2006
  • Summary: I'm a big fan of tactics games. For that and only reason I bought this game.This is a good game for short term simply because it's too short. All you can do is follow the movie story (the movie was damn long one) no alternatives. Dissapointing.

LOTR Tactics Review

Moribund, Amazon
3 August 2006
  • 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.

Minor fixes would make this great

  • Excerpt: Lord of the Rings: Tactics is a solid adaptation of the LOTR films, recreating the film's scenarios in an RPG format. The game is notable especially for allowing you to play as not only the Fellowship, but also the baddies from Mordor.

Could have been better

Amazon
3 August 2006
  • Summary: I hesitated quite a bit before buying this game because of the poor reviews, but being a big fan of games like Fire Emblem I took the plunge. All in all this isn't a bad game and it's a definite improvement on EA's GBA handheld strategy LOR game they released last year. Buy or not to buy?

Great nostalgia...but...

Mr. L. M. Davies, Amazon

  • Summary: Great to be able to play the old favorites and even better playing as the bad guys-something you don't see enough of in my view! Its good for the first few weeks of gameplay-depending on how much you play!

A poor man's Field Commander

YaromCMG, Amazon
3 August 2006
  • Summary: This game plays through scenarios representing some of the scenes in the LotR movies. It pits the heros of the movie against dark riders, orcs, goblins and other various badies. The problem with the game is that the scale is two small.
