for me this game was an major let down because i was hoping it would be like the one on the first Xbox Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes
so right form the start i was hoping it wold be just as good i did not get to far in to the game because the controls are not that grate it dose have most of the major characters form the first one how ever the story dose not fall in line with the first one
if u have played some of the lord of the rings games and loved them then this is for u if not it is your basic hack and slash wave after wave.
the best thing this game has going for it is the 6 different story lines
All of this might be okay if the action was engrossing, perhaps having the same feel as Ninja Gaiden (something the developers were clearly striving for with some of the quicker-moving characters) but the combat is reduced to nothing more than mashing the same buttons over and over without a single true combination in sight. I had countless battles where I'd walk up to a group of enemies, stand at a safe distance and launch my ranged attack over and over. A few would turn and look in my direction, maybe they'd even lumber over, but I it was all too often that I was able keep myself at a distance and take down a gaggle of bad guys. Then there are the times when you're surrounded by baddies and can't escape the animation of getting hit. It happens repeatedly and there's nothing you can do about it. and this is how come i was not abel to finish the game it was that bad
for me i give the game a 1 out of 5

Just bought this game from GameStop because my next game from GameFly won't be in till after the weekend and man am I sorry I bought this.
The game starts and I have no clue what I'm doing, why I'm doing it or what my mission is. The game starts you with no story whatsoever. I am now in act 2 and still no story. 20-30 enemies come at you at a time, which is very old and repetitive, especially when you are mashing X and A for hours at a time. The method you learn new abilities is such a terrible idea. You go to sleep and talk to some random old man in "dream world" and you have to kill a set number of certain enemies in order to get a new ability.
I cannot believe I just spent $15 on this. Save yourself a waste of time and don't rent.

To put this in perspective, I spent a week stuck in bed with an illness. Through a weird set of circumstances the only things I had where my newly acquired x-box 360 arcade, which was a replacement for my previous three time champion of the RROD Xbox 360 pro (hard drive was stuck at home) and this game. This game was so bad, so terribly terribly bad, I actually sat I couldn't make it more than something like 7 hours of total gameplay, in stops and starts, before I had to I had to swear a scared oath to whatever god was listening never to play it again or else risk losing my sanity. I went back to watching daytime TV and playing Hexic. Yes, you know Hexic, that game that comes with every 360. Yeah, that game is better than this and that's coming from a guy who hasn't liked a puzzle game since Super Street Fighter II Puzzle Fighter.
In short don't rent this game. If for some darn reason you do rent it just to find out how right I am, please do the world a favor and buy it. Why? Because then you can break the disk a free gamefly from it's horrible curse forever. You have been warned.
