It was a good game, i loved it. The Atmospheres were good and the fighting style was acceptable. A few glitches though concerned me.
1. sometimes AI companions would get stuck in a small area opening, thus, glitching the enemy wave making me unable to continue. (Wasting 15mins x3 of my time)

2.Sometimes the AI companion would "Spaz out"

3.Objects in the environment would glitch (disappear)

4.Lighting effects would sometimes glitch.

5.Being at the edge of stairs were annoying, for you couldn't move

Even with these problems I found the whole game enjoyable to play. It did have a riveting storyline even though i would have liked to see more of the main villain Agandaur.

Maybe they should've included Sauron and Agandaur having a conversation about how Agandaur became leader of the Orcs. That would then be a good reason to at least show Sauron in the game.

This game is great! I started playing by myself and it was kinda fun but once i had a friend jump in, we both loved it. Even in split screen. The campaign is well over ten hours long and loaded with cool places, awesomely challenging enemies, and tons of loot. I definitely recommend it if you have a friend to play with, or even two via XBOX LIVE.

Hi, this game is a perfect example of a good game to rent. I haven't played multiplayer but my friend and I have been playing the campaign spilt screen. Overall the game is great, it's a fun time with your friends.
Pros:
Fun!
Split-screen action
Cool addition to the LOTR story containing pretty much all the LOTR characters
Set up and storyline for the game is nice
engine runs smoothly
Cons:
Combat gets repetitive
Sometimes to hard to kill guys which makes it unrealistic, especially when using a bow
A pretty predicable game
Thanks!
