When I first saw this game released I was really excited for it. When playing it I found myself utterly disappointed. They could have done a lot more with it. The graphics were very poor. The storyline was not well thought out and it held no surprises if you played any of the past LOTR games. As well as the voice acting could have been done better.
This game may be fun for a younger audience, but if you were expecting something like Conquest or the Lord of the Rings Trilogy games, you will be disappointed. I guess I will be waiting for the serious combat and energetic gameplay if they come out with a new LOTR game.
This game is not fun. At all. I don't have a deep and insightful review on why it isn't fun, I just don't enjoy it. My biggest dislike is that you can't move the camera view around in the midst of the action. Why can't I turn around to see what is biting my ankle at a particular moment in time? I would've been ok with the graphics if the game wasn't poo.
