Very Good

Solid Turn Based RPG, Lacks Major Innovation

This game is a traditional turn-based RPG. That means you issue commands to your characters and they execute them on their own. If you want hands on action, this is not the game for you (Try "Lord of the Rings: Return of the King" instead.)

If you are an RPG fan, this game is a fairly solid in providing exploration, strategic fights, character advancement and loot acquisition. The graphics and effects are good. The game has some interesting systems for upgrading your character's abilities and manages equipment acquisition without resorting to money or stores.

The story is weak, so if that is why you are drawn to RPG's, steer away from this one.

Overall, I'd say it's worth a play if you're both an RPG and Lord of the Rings fan.

This game has been obtained but (sadly) broken by me many time, and with gamefly I have another chance to get it. What i'm saying is this is a very good game unless you hate to wait for a turn, which ain't much, so my advice, rent this game!

Its nice to see that the main fellowship wasnt responsible for everything in that movie. I like the fact that the fellowship actually makes an appearance. Good turn based game. I wish they would make more multiplayer turn based games. Thats a new concept that might actually work. Graphics are good. Controllability is good. All around its a good game.
