Very Good

Quite Dope

This game is very similar to Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic in its style. You have a party, you have items and equipment you can equip to different people, skill points, etc. The battle sequences are pretty fun to participate in. Overall, a freakin' swagaholic game.
I recomend it.

For die hard final fantasy lovers this may not be the game for you. For anyone who loves lord of the rings and wants a turn based system to play it on, this is for you. The voice overs are well done, you follow right behind the fellowship which makes the story of the game a fun one. The landscapes you play in are interesting, ranging from gondor to rohan, to right outside the shire it seems, and everything in between. You level up your characters many times and they recieve a lot of weapons, armor, items, making customization very fun. The boss battles are epic, getting to fight the balrog, the witchking, sharku, etc. also there are some neat mini bosses such as trolls, or giant wargs. The downer about this game is the variety of enemies that you fight. It's a given that it is hard to throw a lot of different enemies at you using the lord of the rings platform, but it wouldn't hurt if there were a few ore anyways. The first play through the game should be a lot of fun and other than the graphics you shouldn't have any problms or complaints about it. Bottom line-I recommend rentig this game as soon as you read this if you like lord of the rings and dont mind turn based play. The first playthrough will be memorable and enjoyable. This is the best lord of the rings game to date.

This isn't even CLOSE to an RPG....

Well, I rented this expecting an RPG just like it states and I can't say that's what I got. With this game you can usually guess whats next and I've found you never really need to worry about your health with a horde of health around every corner. Is it fun, sure, for long....no. If you want a RPG try getting KOTOR, Jade Empire or maybe even Fable. If your looking to burn some time and do a little slashing try it out, otherwise don't waste your time.
