    This game rocks! But is not as good as the Lord of the Rings Two Towers and the fighting stinks!

    I am a huge fan of LOTR. This game was awesome! The people who said graphics and display is terrible are wrong. The only thing wrong was the glitches. Bilbo never gave me the Mithrill Armor. So then I quit and my game was gone!

  1. It ain't particularly exciting, but it ain't exactly bad, either. [Dec 2002, p.272]
  2. While LOTR hits a lot of highs, the overall quest and gameplay are just a little better than average. It's a strong rental. [Spring 2003, p.40]

    Then there's the TERRIBLE fight sequences -- the book's magic may not be as flashy and constant as a Final Fantasy game, but at least the hack-and-slash could have been more engrossing.
