Game Description

Based on the classic J.R.R. Tolkien book and Peter Jackson's award-winning movies, Lord of the Rings: The Third Age takes us well beyond the page and the screen.

A special turn-based battle system also allows for more epic battles and strategic attacks, as you go up against the Balrog or defend Osgiliath.
