5.0 out of 5 stars Needed a helping hand as I forgot how to play game fully as it has been 9 years, 2 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The "Lord of the Rings": Third Age - Official Strategy Guide (Prima Official Game Guides) (Paperback)
Manual really does give step by step guide and info on surviving the Third Age. Whilst the manual does provide in depth information on allies, enemies, locations, items and armour there is not as full a description of the game as there would be with modern day guides. However five star as this guide still held the 36 character cards as shown on the front cover which is very rare to find in good condition and fully complete.

5.0 out of 5 stars AN EXCELLENT GUIDE FOR AN ENJOYABLE GAME!, 5 May 2013
This review is from: The "Lord of the Rings": Third Age - Official Strategy Guide (Prima Official Game Guides) (Paperback)
Anybody who enjoys the Console game LORD OF THE RINGS - THE THIRD AGE will undoubtedly find this PRIMA Strategy Guide indispensable. While at only 176 pages it may not be as large as other game guide volumes, it is simply packed solid with useful tables and information.

The first section deals exclusively with the six party member characters who are recruited throughout the story, giving vital information on all their abilities and listing every single piece of equipment they may use. This is followed by brief summaries of guest characters - such as GANDALF and EOWYN who appear in cameo roles during major events - and provides information on their own unique skills.

Next, and taking up a good section of the book, is the comprehensive walkthrough section, a treasure trove of detailed level maps, quest solutions and battle strategies.

A section on armaments follows and here we have information on all weapons and armour each character can acquire and equip. Several pages on items and Elf stones are included which lists all their abilities and effects, too.

Finally we learn about every enemy type in the game, from lowly Goblin minions and Orc swordsmen to more impressive foes such as Mumakil, Ringwraiths and even the Dark Lord SAURON himself! Each has an individual picture and table describing their attack abilities, unit statistics and vulnerabilities.

As a welcome added bonus, there is also a series of 36 collectible strategy cards (ideal for quick reference) included inside the book which give an illustration and statistics on the front, plus attack and vulnerability listings of each monster and, for the player characters, a reference of each skill they can obtain throughout the game.

The book is nicely presented with clear and concise text, superb illustrations and well chosen game screenshots. It is assessable for game players of every ability, whether they are newcomers or veterans and as such it comes highly recommended!
