Fun for a quick rent, but not much else.

Linear Story line and bugs galore really hurt this game. However it was fun to play for the short time I had it. Combat was frantic and somewhat challanging at times. Worth a weekend rental to play through online w/ friends.

Great for fans of LOTR

Long story short, It's a great game if you're fans of the Franchise and want to get back into a much higher graphic version of the world. Totally awesome to check out places you haven't in previous games and fight with people online.
Won't take you all that long to finish it unless you spread it out over a week like I did. You can drop in on other peoples game and help them out, but if you open a public match you run the risk of some guy who's a much lower level dropping in on you and slowing you down constantly. Definitely a great rental from Gamefly but Don't buy it unless you're a hardcore LOTR fan.

Fun, but needed more time to polish.

I'm really enjoyed this game(but i'm a huge LOTR fan) The combat could get on the repetitive side but the Story and the differences between characters made up for repetitiveness. I stuck mostly to the Dwarf Warrior because of his play style but I did manage to play the 3 classes. This is a fun Coop hack and slash, that gives you the feel of the old dungeon crwaler games that were very popular in the days of the ps2 and xbox.(Champions Of Norrath, Dungeons and dragons, Titan quest.) Overall it was an enjoyable play through especially when your playing coop with a friend or 2. The game really needed alot more polish and it would have done well, its a good rent here on Gamefly. Not sure Id wanna keep this one though.
