A fun week or two for sure.

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • 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.

Great fun always ends soon

  • 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.

Good effort by EA

Noel Bell, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a great game for the psp. For those of you that are Final Fantasy fans this game plays like Final Fantasy Tactics. You can play either the side of Moria or the Fellowship. Some reviews call this a short game. If you only play it once with out getting everthing for your heros, it is. However I'm taking the time to get everthing and the memory stick claims I have about nine hours play time. I still don't have all the Moria skills.

Good Looking Fast-Paced Tactics Game

Stan "Khan", Amazon
18 November 2005
  • Summary: For a tactics type game, this one has bigger, better looking, more realistic graphics than most. Because enemy and hero units move simultaineously, and it is simpler than most tactics games, it is faster paced than most as well. It features skills/spells and items similar to "LOTR - The Third Age", which must be purchased in-between battles. All "Heros" gain experience from each battle, even if they were not in it.

Great Game...1 Downfall though.

James DeSantis "Elevate", Amazon

  • Summary: Well If you are looking to buy this your already know what Lord Of The Rings Is. So let me start with the Pros. Pro's - - Enviroments - Nicly done. - Attacks - Normal and Bow attacks are nicly animated. - Spells - Most you will want to see more then once, very few are boring and lame. - Story - Well it's Lord Of The Rings for a handheld, it's good but nothing more.

  • Summary: About this game I have to say that this is a good work. I like on it the good graphics and that it leaves you in suspence.I like to be in a world of imagination and to travel in the time.When you play this game you have the pleasure inside you and when you end this game you say "Why it is over,I want to play it again." I think that this game is one of the best games for PSP.

Good but short

Alexandros Stamos "christos", amazon.co.uk
6 December 2005
  • Summary: Good looking game with plenty of film cut scenes, the ability to play good or evil, three difficulty levels, and more skills than you can buy, which adds to replaying the game focusing on different characters. However, the game is quite short in length including the optional scenes, so leave the easy mode for the younger players.
