    The Lord of the Rings: The Third age is spectacular but lacks depth and proper ending.

    Rated on December 26, 2005 by paulofgondor91

    Lord of the Rings the third age certainly outdoes itself on clips and voices from the three Lord of the Rings films though. Despite all this bang it is not worthy bearing the title, The Lord of the R...

    Worse than it is good,but is good

    Rated on December 30, 2005 by LOTR_man_4ever

    After you get past the boring battle queue, massively unbalanced computer intelligence, and mock-cooperative mode; it's an OK game. Let's start with the worst: the new battle mode. Well there is no ot...

    Worth a rental

    Rated on July 27, 2006 by stormbringa

    The Third Age is a decent experience for all LOTR fans. It’s a fairly “easy-to-play” game, especially for RPG players. Storyline is distinctive and not the regular LOTR tale. Having said that, you ...

    Amazing, outstanding, stunning, everything!

    Rated on January 05, 2006 by pt99866

    I just love this game. No, I don't mean the NBA, I mean The Lord of the Rings:The Third Age. This is the coolest game ever made. Even though it doesn't follow the path of the first 3 LOTR games, it's ...

    This game is the best RPG I've played since FFX.

    Rated on January 06, 2006 by warwithin4486

    Seriously,I was very pleasantly surprised when I loaded this game up for the first time. Someone got it for me for Christmas and i assumed it was crappy bargain bin material, since I'd never heard of ...

    Final Fantasy skinned for LOTR fans

    Rated on December 08, 2004 by rocheambeau

    There's really not that much to say about LOTR: The Third Age. Take the combat mechanics from Final Fantasy (or similar turn-based Japanese RPG) and slap them into a sub-standard 3rd person adventur...

    A really well developed RPG, that all RPG fans should own.

    Rated on August 08, 2006 by dzms

    Now this game is one of the best RPG's and one of the hardest RPG's that I own. This game tells the tale you didn't know was happening during the time of the movies. This is a big change to this serie...

    Rated on August 08, 2006 by alexxallen

    First off the RPG factor is awesome. In the game you fight exactly like you did in Final Fantasy X and level up like normal rpgs. It is a kick ass title because you don't use the usual ass kickers s...
