It has the potential to be one of the best games ever, unfortunately they felt the need to put in mages (ie not just gandalf & sauraman) this is probably to make it abit more like guild wars and wow (both crap games imo)
To make it an ace game take out
-Some of the stupid "fire attacks"
- Grima wormtongue being some ace fighting person
-All of the story
-More horse riding :)
This game is basically starwars battlefront mixed with return of the king (the game) but with less of the story and just the main battles.
And no you can't fly on the eagles or nazguls (?), but you can be the balrog, trolls, ents, sauron, and all of the heroes.
