A mediocre beat'em up with interesting goodies for the film fans.

The Good

The game is amusing, if you are a fan of the film it will have you glued to the screen until you finish it.

The epicity of some moments is cool, fighting in the Helm Abyss as Aragorn side by side with Gimli and Legolas was very nice, you could feel the tension of the battle.

There are also some interesting extras and interviews getting unlocked when reaching 'X' level with 'X' character.

The Bad

Something feels odd about this game, it's not very detailed as if they just wanted to make something based on the film to sell copies, in terms of gameplay it could have been very improved, giving more unique abilities to the three characters, because there isn't any great difference between them.

The game lacks more characters and levels, you can finish the game in one or two days if you don't bother to level up the three characters.

Also the first levels are extremely easy, in a laughable way, there are some harder bits in the middle, but nothing to be very worried about.

The Bottom Line

Only for fans of the film (or the book), other people just might find on that game a mediocre beat'em up.
