Highly disappointed

Gonna start out with the short and sweet: If you liked/loved the first one, don't get this one. It is a mockery of the first and throws you into the game with no objective or story except pressing the attack button as fast as you can. I thought maybe I missed something and this isn't how the game is, so I pressed on to the first boss who I had to fight with no information on what I was expected to do. This is when the game went glitchy and stopped registering my hits which dropped my damage output to about one damage every 10-15 swings. Not that horrible until you realize that the boss had over 500 HP. Gave up and am sending it back. Really had his hopes for this game.

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

Alright enough to play for a while

Sorry if I seem as if I'm too high and mighty for this game but, it just didn't reach my taste in an RPG... It was a good game I guess but too many people with excruciating power that just raped everyone in the game... It was good enough to play... But not good enough to beat...
