    The greatest moment of this game was the first 2 minutes of gameplay. Then it just felt like a chore too play. Actualy, that is most of the gameplay. e.g. go and find 11 lillies, run around this maze, collect all 5 piglets... and you do it all by yourself! Its supposed to be the fellowship of the ring. And the worst part when you go to first person you can only look around without moving. The greatest moment of this game was the first 2 minutes of gameplay. Then it just felt like a chore too play.

    Poor graphics and sound. might as well be for ps1. video skips on my copy as well as friends. More suitable for an 8 yr old. missions don't seem to have much point or relativeness to the game. hope Two Towers is better and comes soon.

    It is a good idea, although the voice acting sucks, and it starts so boring that by the time you get to some fun stuff the whole mood is over with yeah don't waste your time.

    Worth a rent, but not a buy. Definitely more for fans of the book or movie. Great graphics, semi-fun gameplay, but I can't see much replay value in this one.

  1. The game suffers from some repetitive missions with a lot of "fetch this and find that," plus many of the camera angles are finicky.
  2. If you can live with all the problems, irritations and lack of inspiring gameplay, there’s actually a reasonably big game locked away. Real, hardcore Tolkien nuts, who live and breath the man’s work, may get something out of this.

    If there was any truth in advertising, Universal would hawk this game as "Lord of the Pointless Fetch Quest" and recommend that potential buyers seek the Fellowship of Many Beers to dull the pain. [Winter 2002, p.103]
