    First LOTR game on the PSP...

    In Tactics you'll replay the biggest and the more interesting battles from the film. The cut scanes are all taken from the film and are most of the times well done and in a good sequence. This is a turn base game that is... Read Full Review

    Has the ingredients like a popular franchise, epic battles and unique characters but manages to mix them wrong and fail.

    The game revolves around good, or bad, trying to dominate middle earth through a board-game style. Each characters has a different amount of HP, Mp, etc. We have Gandalf, Aragorn, Frodo and Co. here but they don't implem... Read Full Review

    A really boring game and not worth getting

    wow words can not say how bad this game really was. It was pretty much the same thing over and over and over again. The game play was horrible and the graphics were horrible. Everything was really really predictable and ... Read Full Review

    So simple, so boring, and it could be so much better.

    I think the lord of the rings movies are a little boring. There is not enough actions in the movie, but it's still a great movie. Great actors, great director, and the only problam is the boring scenes. The games was g... Read Full Review

    Alright For A Turn-Based Game.

    Lord Of The RIngs: Tactics is good game. This game can be boring when you carry on playing for a long while because all your doing is taking turns on moving and then attacking the oppenent. It seems they have tried to sp... Read Full Review

    The system of gameplay is solid and intuitive, but there's a persistant feeling of that which is dull and hollow.

    Lord of the Rings Tactics is a strategy game that reproduces the events of the movie as a strategy role-playing game. In this title, you can play as either the Fellowship as Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas and others, or as the ... Read Full Review

    Better tactical RPGs have been made. This game feels like a product of an EA sweatshop in Asia.

    I can't really say much about this game except that it's a substandard tactical RPG. Sure, I saw it through to the end, but I didn't bother playing as the opposing side (I played the Fellowship side) once it was through... Read Full Review
