I wold most certainly rate this game with a ten. The graphics are by far acceptable and game play is definitely something to keep returning to. Also the storyline for the game are ones to keep the player playing. It was also a good quality to have gamers play as all of the characters you never got to explore before such as, Oliphaunts, Ring Wraiths, Ents, and Villains. The final great achievement for this game is the instant action feature and the option to play the untold story of the ring returning to Sauron.

This game is a lot of fun.
I wish that blocking system was a bit better, its kind of a pain when you have to fight with one orc/soldier for 5 minutes just to get them to stop blocking. The storylines should have gone along with the movie a little more to make it a bit more realistic but I understand why they didnot.
The figthing is very cool with whole battles going on around you and the ability to grab any combatant on the field and duel to the death with them is very nice. The enviromental controls are nice too allowing you to interact with weapons on the battle feild or bust down a on coming orc battle tower with a catapult. The ability to once and a while use one of the actual LOTR's charaters (e.g. Aragorn) is fun too. For the most part the feature I loved the best was that once you play out the battle for middle earth as the movie intended you can change it up and play as the baddies. This gives you a whole new prospective and maks this game totaly worth playing.
So like I said all-in-all a good game and if you are a LOTR's fan then you will most likely enjoy this game very much.
