  1. Adult gamers will find it too basic, children may find it too frustrating, and fans of lord of the Rings will prefer a more authentic Tolkien experience. [Feb 2004, p.73]
  2. If you play only one game set in Middle-earth this year, don't make it this one.

    An all around fun game with great music. Sneaking, action, puzzles the game has it all. Graphics aren't amazing but the art style is great, the gameplay is fun and refreshing. A must have in my books. Full Review »

    This was my first computer game(literally the first one i ever played) and i still remember it as one of the best.This game is no longer for me but at the time it felt perfect( i was about 10 years old).Not too frustrating,colorful and sticks with the story of the book.The gameplay mechanics are not the best but it's still playable and not too annoying,The only crappy part i remember were the jumping puzzles,hack and slash games aren't freakin meant for that,especially old ones.It's hard to replay it at my age(19) cuz i have been spoilt by pretty graphics and good game mechanics but as this review is from memory i can say that the younger ones will love this.

    The Hobbit - This game, from which you can get a lot of positive emotions and good mood.
    It is not necessary to evaluate these games, with
    "large" projects.
    A good, sweet story with beautiful music and funny characters.
    Can easily keep you busy for a few nights.
