4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining 18 April 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I played this game for a short while, and then put it away. I only rediscovered it a few months later, began to play it again, and instantly got addicted.

The game is truly excellent. The storyline is good, the areas to explore are interesting, and the battles, although turn based, do involve a fair bit of strategy. As the game advances, the characters learn more and more moves which get better and better, and the moves you learn are based on the ones you have already been using, which I think is a very good touch. In some parts, you get to meet up with members of the fellowship, and fight alongside them, which are some of the battles I enjoy the most.

There are drawbacks, though. The characters, although interesting, seem wooden, and the storyline, although following the original fellowship, seems a little stretched. The map can also be confusing at times, and difficult to follow, and quests can seem difficult to understand.

One thing particularly annoying is the extreme variables of difficulty. At some points, it can appear to be ridiculously easy, and you are barely challenged at all, yet, in the same level, even setting the difficulty to the easiest available can make a battle appear virtually impossible.

In conclusion, I enjoyed the game, and thought it was a good idea. By all means, buy the game, and you'll be very likely to enjoy it, especially if you are a Tolkein fan, but, if a sequel to this game is released (which I personally hope), then there are areas that can be improved.

Always enjoyed this game since I was young and my friend got me into it on his PS2, and we'd play co-op.
Only bad thing I could say it that it is a little grindy at times but is a must play for any fans of turn based strategy RPG's, and LOTR.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome game 29 Dec. 2012

Spent a lot of time playing this game and love it.
Had it originally on the PS2, but then a brother and time got to it and scratched it.
Brilliant for the Lord of the Rings nerds, or people looking for a decent turn based RPG.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun for LOTR fans, not best RPG 22 Nov. 2004
By A Customer
Verified Purchase
Linear RPG with turn-based combat. Follows story parallel to the original works. Well realised new characters, fun to play alongside Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli and Gandalf. Great meeting the Balrog, Nazgul and Mumakil to battle. Gets a bit boring around middle (Plains of Rohan), but worth playing through for Helms Deep and Minas Tirith. Good dialogue on characters, lots of footage from films - some original clips. Nice co-op feature so friends can drop in and out whenever while not affecting 1-player game. Got quite into, some battles have modicum of tactics required about them. Later gets a bit healer / strip armour(morgul decay) / tank combo to grind through battles. Worth it.
