Summary

Not worth the money...

The Good

The atmosphere was pretty good, and the handling of the characters was pretty fun, especially the "finishing moves" executed by Gandalf or Aragorn whereby a fallen enemy is stabbed through vital organs and killed.

The Bad

I completed it in one day, no jokes. In the end I brought it back to from whence it came. Also, the plot was atrocious. *GAME SPOILERS IMMINENT* At the end of this game (which is supposed to be the first book), the Fellowship is attacked by the Witch-king who, for some reason, kidnaps Sam. Am I the only one who missed that bit in Tolkien's Novel?

The Bottom Line

I'm a LOTR fanatic, and *still* couldn't glean much joy from this hack 'n slash. Don't waste your money.
