"A Must-have"on by Obliviateable
Pros Good looking, Great gameplay
Cons A little hard even on Easy, Hard to level up, Hard-to-memorize combo's
Summary This is a really great game. With a wide selection of chracters, anything can be possible. As you probably know, this is a game of the movie. You can visit every battle fron the 3rd movie and parts of the 2nd movie too. You can take all the characters and put them in locations they never went to. For example: you can put Aragorn in Minas Tirith instead of Gandalf. The graphics are great for that time and the gameplay is great. To sum up, one of the best games of all time in my opinion. A must-have for the PS2.
Pros Ok, the graphics weren't so bad...Some thrilling moments in there tooo...
Cons TERRIBLE Controls..
Insanely inadequate and frustrating "checkpoint system"..
PAthetic Camera ...
Summary TERRIBLE Game!!Period.... The PC port is so horrible, I literally tore my hair out in frustration!! *** is up with the lame checkpoint system???? I've had to do many of the "episodes" over and over and over again JUST to complete it and get moving... Coupled with a BS save game that does NOT remember the check point...and uve got the biggest AARGH factor!!
Also incredibly pathetic is the twisted camera ....u have NO way of knowing when ur running back whether there's an army of uruks /spiders (the shelobs lair..ugh...i hgave up the game while playing THAT tripe!!) ...waiting to accost you or something else... u JUST can predict where ur going....
The hopeless PC controls, the nasty camera and the over and over repetitive gameplay because of the moronic and thoroughly inadequate Checkpoint system killed this game!! HELLOO - EA-- MASS EFFECT? Anyone???? See how a game is done righT!!1
Trust EA to mess up ANYTHING that should be right...
I usually not the one to grap and gripe about corporate evil...I think Microsoft is fine but for a few flaws..but EA tends to screw up EVERYTHING!!! I hope this game company dies , taking all its assets with it..time for a fresh slate!!!
Excuse me now..there's a dvd I gotta go throw down a trash chute!!
Pros Decent graphics; good combat; tons of skills
Cons Not very long; bothersome cameras
Summary Fun! The graphics are just ok (not great), but the game is good and makes up for that. There are tons of skills to buy, and once you've finished the game, it's pretty free-roaming. Also, tons of replay value.
"One of my favorites"on by jdpau
Pros Great graphics, co-op multiplayer is awesome and adds replay value.
Cons Cut-scenes can get annoying, but can sometimes be skipped. If you are a real LOTR fan you won't mind waiting though.
Summary This is one of my favorite games. The graphics on it are pretty good, and the sound is also very good (we have a sub connected to our speakers and it's really cool with the volume turned up BOOM-BOOM-rumble-BOOM-rumble). Multiplayer is very fun (my brother and I went through the entire thing in multiplayer mode, him with the mouse and keyboard, me with the joystick). The upgradeable skills and weapons and combos are also cool. If you are a LOTR fan you should get this game (I got it off of ebay for about 5 bucks).
