On sale at Gamefly for $10 this weekend.
I'm pleasantly surprised how fun the game is, despite its flaws. It's one thing to pay $40-$50 for this with high expectations, and completely different when you buy it for $10 and don't expect much.
I would be all over a sequel that simply improved upon and corrected its flaws, and opened things up a bit.
I'm partial to LOTR games, but find most of them to be of high quality and worthwhile, this is no execption, and I even put down Diablo III for it (it is a nice break from D3).
