4.5 Nice game with few small anoying things THIEF15 | 12/11/2011 | See all THIEF15's reviews (9) Bought this game from a store since it was cheap. Was a bit suprised to see the graphics of the game. Was expecting a serious / realistic game (atleast that was the impressing I got from the cover) but instead you get a children version of lord of the ring (more cartoon style, no blood). I did like that you play basicly in 2 areas: 1 you play as Frodo (not the Frodo from the movies but a son of Samwise Gamgee) in the Shire. 2: you play are Aragorn in the lord of the ring story as we all know it. In the Shire you basicly learn the controlls in a safe environment and need / can (some are required some extra stuff you can do) do quests. In the real story you have 8 levels with most levels also have a lot of collectibles and side quests so there is a lot to do.The down sides of the game in my opinion are that you have no camera controlls. The camera usually tries to stay behind you and thats it. Makes it a little harder to do the side quests where you need to look for stuff to complete sidequests (mainly talking about the treasurehunting sidequests in the Shire). The other bad thing is that the game has a coop mode. Now that itself isn't a problem but if you play solo and some collectibles need to be unlocked with the second character is a little anoying. In the story the second character is Gandalf and it even is when Gandalf aint even around (talking about story wise now, like when he fell of the bridge in the first movie). Not well thought about but ok. The bad sides of the games are not frustrating but could have made it a little easier / better / more realistic. But you shouldnt completely ignore the game because of itMost of the trophies are also pretty easy to get, they just look impossible when you look at them (like defeating 2500 enemies).
