They should not call this game an "Action / Adventure" game as it plays more like an RPG. the button reaction is horrible and when comparing it with other real "Action / Adventure" games out there, this fall waaaayy short!!! dont waste ur time unless your looking for an RPG game that kinda-sorta-looks like an action / adventure game.
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.
