Conclusion: Hats-off to the level design and character teams for asthetics. The game 'looks' great. And to the producers--It's definately high-action and well balanced. (accept for a few bottle-necked areas) Unfortunately over-all I would give this game a 3 (on a scale of 1-10). why? Well first of all I did not buy this game to watch the movie AGAIN.

Conclusion: Well when you first play this your like ya im playing a movie here the cutscences got good timing. Well its funny to wield a sword and kill so many orcs that outnumber you like at least 30/2. Pushing lava on orcs is funny. Shooting arrows is fun. Defending people is not. The worst level ever is when you have to let 200 woman run into the city without dying while tons of orcs and TROLLS are murdering everyone and you. Dont worry you have 1 soldier pssh.

The fighting action in this game is pretty good and while ...

Summary: The game play on this game is nice... Theres no denying that. Movment is good, the graphics are reasonable and well it's an "ok" game. One problem with the game is that the plot is VERY linear. By that I mean you have set quest and set levels and you cant stray form them at all. You get no choice in the game play. Now I understand it's trying to follow the movie plot however it gives the player almost no choices what so ever.
