Could have been MUCH better

  • Summary: I have enjoyed playing the majority of Lord of the Rings games (battle for middle earth, return of the king etc) and enjoyed playing this one as well. However it does not, in my mind, do the lord of the rings much justice and sometimes twists the story too much for my liking. The battle system is a commonly used random battle, turn based setup which can get pretty tiresome.

  • Summary: When I first saw this game I thought "a group that werent in the film or books but were apparently there all along in the background, what a poor attempt at milking the cash cow" as I'm sure a lot of others have. However I got it anyway as I thought I'd give it a try, the tie in has been reasonably well thought out and seems to work, seeing the main characters a little more often would have been nice, (my games 70 odd percent done and I havent seen Sam, Merry, Frodo or...

Rather dissapointing.

  • Summary: Okay i'm a big rings fan and own all the rings games on xbox, and when third age came out i had to buy it straight away. First thing that struck me was the graphics, you can tell the creators have had to rush the game for its release date and for this they have suffered. I couldn't help myself sniggering at the graphics in the combat scenes and some of the landscapes. Nothing is smooth and the only detail that is impressive is the spells in combat.
