Summary

Destroy it in Mount Doom... or bury it in the desert

The Good

The versatility of being able to play multiple characters from the novels and films in several favorite settings is the game's biggest appeal... and once you've actually played the game, you realize that that is the game's one and only appealing aspect.

The Bad

There is no single aspect of this game that is good. Unless you are a complete Tolkien completist, avoid it like the plague. Even Sierra's atrocious The Hobbit is better.

The Bottom Line

Play the later two games in the trilogy instead, especially Return of the King. Or put your hand through a meat grinder. Either option is better than playing LOTR:FOTR.
