Excerpt: I really don't know why I do it. I like to consider myself a rational man, a man of logic and common sense and good hygiene, and yet, every time I discover a new Lord of the Rings-themed RPG, I simply have to pick it up and play it no matter how bad the last one I played was. Really, considering what I've gone through in the past , it's a miracle that I bothered to give The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age a chance at all, but somehow, through the twin magicks of big...
Conclusion: Some say you must respect the past to appreciate the future. I would say this is totally the case with the Guilty Gear franchise. It may not be evident to all, but gameplay can be exquisite without using the latest graphical techniques; in some ways, less reliance on fresh visual flair may help out the quality of the action. Guilty Gear X2 #Reload is what the hardcore fighter genre is all about, and at a nifty price.
Excerpt: Editor's note: I played this game on the Xbox, but it has also been released on PlayStation 2 and Nintendo's GameCube. As far as I am aware, there are no differences in story or gameplay between the three versions, only technical differences in graphic and sound quality, as well as button configuration to accommodate the different controllers for each console.
Conclusion: It must have something going for it though as I was able to sit for 6+ hours solid, progressing and building up my characters. This was actually more to do with wanting to see where the story goes and if you do encounter the Fellowship at all. It was at that 6 hour point that I found the answer to that question, had a meeting with Gandalf and died in battle. It took three attempts to win.
Conclusion: The Third Age is by most accounts a lengthy and entertaining game. It is, however, a little deceptive to be labeled as a role-playing game. It feels more like a linear turn-based action adventure where you are always moving from one battle to the next. The presentation of the game is impressive and faithful to the source material, if you overlook the awkward execution of this new side-story to the film plot, and the pacing of the battles are tight and frenzied, making...
Pros: + impressive presentation and faithful to the films, + very intense and fast-paced turn-based combat, + fight along-side characters from the film, +, +, Reviewed by Karter Yu
Cons: - lacking enemy AI, - over-simplification of combat leading to lack of strategy, - too much reliance on the films and no plot to call its own, -

Conclusion: Även om alla filmsekvenser inte har någon dvd-kvalité tillför de ändå en stark episk känsla som tillsammans med allmänt godkänd grafik ger rätt fantasystämning. Tyvärr känns karaktärerna en aning fantasilösa. När ens sällskap har utvecklats en del och när man fastnat i storyn är det svårt att inte låta sig svepas med i den härliga LotR-andan.
Pros: Ian McKellen grymma röst, Alla filmsekvenser, Enkelt att lära sig, Bra längd, Den episka känslan, Svensk text i spelet, Gediget ljud
