I haven't played this game co-operatively and don't much plan to, but the AI is fine. If you are down they will come and revive you quickly, and they are also quick to use their powers and special attacks, which is fine by me.
I haven't completed it yet but after playing for three hours the ending is nowhere near in sight. Looking at the map there are travel locations all over middle earth so there is the promise of visiting old and familiar locations, as well as braving the less-traveled areas to the north of the map.
The tech tree is varied and comprehensive; there are plenty of weapons choices and I have been quite impressed by the way in which you can match your 'loadouts' to your playing style. Whether you like sword and shield, two-handed swords, or dual wield, the game caters for all varieties (including bows and crossbows, axes and magic attacks).
As with all games it has its problems; thus far they have not been intrusive and I have only encountered one glitch (which was quickly remedied). The side quests can be absurdly easy, and as mentioned above, the combat is a little repetitive. Be prepared for a fair bit of button mashing.
That said it's a solid game and great fun to play - you will sink a lot of man hours into it whether you're a fan of LOTR or not.
A black numenorean has taken command of an ancient citadel and summoned to him a giant army of orcs and ogres.Your job is to stop him and protect the free people of the north .Choose between a axe wielding dwarf a magical elf or a Dunedain ranger,but of course the choices dont stop there you can also choose where to spend your points, make the elf a offensive mage or a defensive healer,etc.The ranger can have stealth sword wielding or arrows skills or a combination there of .The type of combat you employ will be influenced by your character and in what direction you choose to evolve them.
The game is great with varied enemies, missions and prompts you to alter your tactics frequently as more deadly foes are suddenly unveiled.
American accents? in middle earth? REALLY? jars very badly when some of the voice actors have made the effort and others sound like there from the bronx version of middle earth.
Other than that its a quite involving if short romp through the hidden realms of lord of the rings
I enjoy the lord of the rings franchise in general and having played the likes of Battle for middle Earth 2 (which is bloody fantastic) I thought this alleged RPG/Hack'n'slash treasure looter might be worth a punt. Well, let's clear a few things up to start with;
It's NOT an RPG in any sense of the term. You choose your character from a Ranger (good with bows), a Dwarf (good at melee combat) or an Elven babe (great at chucking spells around and zapping things with he magic staff). Once you choose your character you go straight into the game, and it is VERY VERY VERY much a linear 'start here, kill these dudes to advance, smash open barrels and collect the items' kind of slug fest. Some reviews claim there is strategy to this game... NOPE! It is very doable with good old button bashing providing you keep your other members leveled and skilled. This last aspect is a shower of s**t. The game does not allow you to swap out characters mid round and to allocate skill points to your other two members you need to exit the game after an auto save, load the game, select a different character, allocate skill points to them, sell off their booty that they've grabbed during their time, beef up their kit and weapons, and then save, exit, rinse and repeat for the others. It is a ball-ache and could have been much better thought out.
IF you like fantasy rpg's and like bows, arrows, magic and sword play then buy Oblivion or Skyrim game of the year editions. This is NOT an rpg.. It requires little thought so is fine for younger gamers, well, it would suit certain root vegetables on the thought required scale to be honest, and the 'gore' factor is nothing compared to gears of war or Fallout N.V. etc...Read more ›
