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 is aimed at kids, there's no doubt about that. With that in mind, the game isn't too bad. The gameplay is pretty solid, music is nice, and graphics are okay.
I played the game using the Move + Navigation controller and had pretty good time with it. No controls were that hard to understand. The game is much more fun if you have a second player join the game to help you with your quest. It really helps to breeze through the game.
This game can be beaten 100% in a couple days, so it's at least worth a rent for a lonesome weedend, or a great rent for trophy hunters.
