  1. Game play can be summed up in one word…repetitive.
  2. 40
    And urgency is desperately what this game needs, but sadly doesn’t have. Boredom is sure to set in during the very first level.
  3. Looks terrible, plays worse. Ageing side-scrolling combat and dour mission objectives create something truly worthless. Like the peasants, its revolting. [PSM2]
  4. Somewhere between the unhelpful camera, crappy animations, sloppy control, and repetitive level design, we stopped ranking the offenses. [Holiday 2004, p.86]
  5. This is not the worst game ever made, but it's so inept at so many different points that it inspires more anger than a genuinely awful game.
  6. The game is one long wave of monotonous, sloppy combat. [Jan 2005, p.102]

    Oh boy yay another LOTR clone... Like Forgotten Realms that copied Two Towers Arthur copies Return of the King with co-op for that I don't give it a 3 but it's still not too fun. Seeing your character just flail around with his swords hitting everything in a dark ugly enviroment and unskippable movie sequences are a annoyance as well not only that but they are LOOOOOOOOONNNGGG! You just button mash all day long even more than LOTR and it's clones. Avoid this please avoid it PLEASE! Full Review »
