I know they rated this game teen but I'm in my twenties and I thoroughly enjoyed this game. The playstation move with this game is so flawless. I enjoyed re-enacting the movie but feeling as I myself was actually the character playing. I totally recommend this game to those who like the movie and to those who just love action games. Two thumbs up.

I almost missed out on a really cool game because I thought it was going to be one for the kiddies. Looks can be deceiving. Within the first half hour, the game starts to get rolling. The story is just timeless and if you have read the books a long time ago, this brings them back to mind. The animation is kind of cartoonish but it has a real charm to it. It doesn't take away from the gameplay. The one shockingly bad thing about the game is the lack of camera control. Didn't they bother to test the game? This really is a drawback but its still worth playing through to relive the story of the lord of the rings.
Now as for this game, i dont see why it has such a low rating. i like it so far from what ive played of it. great storyline through the eyes of Samwise Gamgee, nice score, and good controls. the graphics could be a little better than they are, but graphics dont make a game. i like how it works with the Move, and i like the storyline it has, playing as Sam's son Frodo, along with Aragorn and Gandalf. I personally think this is a must play for any LotR fan. Maybe not to buy until it drops in price, but definitely to rent, whether you're a LotR fan, or a trophy hunter. It's fun. But when i play games, i rate on the story and playability. which is why i gave it a 6. It's different from the Movie based games, which is what makes it fun to me. I mean yea, your basically playing through the movie story, but as i said, through the eyes of Sam.
