Summary: This game takes a different path to the others (which concentrate on the films and mostly on fighting); The Fellowship of the Ring is mostly based around puzzles, strategic battling and story telling. However its not all fun and games; it can be glitchy, clunky, frustraiting and the end (as many other reviews have pointed out) is far from the book or the film. The controls could have been smoothed over more; the camera for instance is difficult to control at points.
The Lord Of The Rings Better Like The Book Or Like The Film?
1 February 2003
Summary: The Lord Of The Rings The Fellowship Of The Ring is a better choice over EA's title for fans of the BOOK not the Film! As it is based on the book making what Tolkien wanted come to life. You play as Aragorn with his sword (Anduril) and bow for long ranged attacks,Frodo whith his dagger passed down from his uncle Bilbo (Sting) as well as rocks which are handy for distracting orcs and black riders and the precious One Ring!
a superb game...pitty it wasn't based on the film though

Summary: I find it weird how a games manufacturer didn't base this game on the actual film, where it would have made much more money on. But it is based on the book instead. Although it does give the game a slight advantage with more indepth character interactions, and more to do stories about. The game starts off with Frodo in The Shire as a Hobbit, and searches around the town help people with problems they have, to give the game a problem solving task for the player.
