    It's a bit clunky and some decks are way superior than others but it's generally a good game.

    The Lord Of The Rings: Adventure Card Game, instead of pitting you against other players, LOTR is much more interested in telling stories,The Lord Of The Rings: Adventure Card Game, instead of pitting you against other players, LOTR is much more interested in telling stories, strange Lord of the Rings smash tales that take place between The Hobbit and the Fellowship series. I’m not a Lord Of The Rings fan myself. I have a little knowledge of the story and characters. But it took me a little while of listening to The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game’s admittedly well-told stories before I realized what was going on. It is interesting that Fantasy Flight Interactive decided on this path, because Lord of The Rings fans are notorious about narrative accuracy, and inaccurate narrative is an enormous part of this game. Before each hand, the player is treated to two-three minutes of fully voiced original storytelling. This story content frankly feels like distilled Tolkien, with the characters and locations all ringing somewhat true, it just feels a little off to me personally. But setting aside the pervasive narrative weirdness, the core of The Lord Of The Rings: Adventure Card Game is a pretty solid, though consistently challenging, and collectable card game. The player’s decks are based around three powerful Hero cards, each of which brings with special abilities. These three cards are granted to the player at the outset of each quest, giving the player an immediate advantage. This one heals another character each turn, that one gains extra attack power when an ally is injured. These cards carry some of the highest stats in the game, so it helps the player to keep them alive. Lose a hero card, and it’s pretty much game over for you. The Lord Of The Rings: Adventure Card Game is available to play for those with Xbox Game Pass now for free or you can make the straight out purchase for a fair price. One of the more enjoyable card games I've played in some time especially not being a huge fan of the origin or card games in general it's definitely a must buy if you are a fan of the genre and give it a try on Xbox Game Pass if not.
