Lord Of The Rings - 3rd Age

The game uses the FF movement, you see the principal character when moving in the world, then the three active characters in the turned based combat mode. Just like FF you have the option between armed and magic assisted armed attacks, item use, or straight magical attacks. You also build up points to use perfect mode, much like the summoning points in FF. You use experience points to strengthen the different aspects of your character strength, speed, spirit, constitution, etc..
The game has many cut scenes using live video from the movies with voiceover provided by Ian McKellen. It also has many of the same downers as FF, the combat mode is repetitive, and the world itself is limited, but seing Mister Bolbo's trolls or the broken bridge in Morria make up for it.
I think the best part of the game is the co-operative mode. If you have young children they can play along easily with you, as opposed to the previous Rings games. They can even take the lead with a little help from you. Overall I would say this would rate 4.50 out of 5 stars.

I just finished the Helms Deep level and thought that it was pretty cool to be able to stroll around Helms Deep! Gives a great sense of perspective that really adds to the whole LOTR experience**.
**Guess its pretty obvious I'm a LOTR fan.

Trigger I can tell you get ready to spend some time playing. Osgiliath is relentless. heheheheh
Helios - Idrial is a great character but Berethor, i mean, a hot Elf chick AND a hot Sword Maiden, c'mon the boys got mad flow!!!
ZASADAR - no flames It is just like the FF games in that regard, but they do a great job of creating the feel of the movies, so that is why it is a plus to Lotr fans. It is typical of console games. To get great graphics you sacrifice game play and length. For great mega playtime games you get less atmosphere and graphics.

All well, it's an awsome game... I spent hours leveling my characters up.... just got past eastern Moria again, although this time Iridrial has all here spiritcraft powers, and the rest of the characters are near completion
Now I just wish someone would make a trainer file for the game

It was extremely linear.... almost EVERY item found was an upgrade - which kind of defeats the purpose. The game leads you along only one path.... You spend all your time walking a direction not of your choosing. Wearing specified armour, and wielding whichever weapon you just pulled from a chest (which was coincidently lying in your path).
The scenery looks fantastic, but the rest of the game was soooo boring!
don't even rent it.
Anyone who enjoyed it (IMHO), has no idea what "fun" means.
