The game is a great game for lotr fans. You will go to many different locations in middle earth. Character customization is also good with many different skills and stats. The bad things is the combat system. It is turn based which isn't bad, but you don't see your enemy. They pop up then you initiate battle. Also it is very linear. You must go a certain path, there are no choices or alternate paths. The ending makes no sense at all also. The graphics aren't bad, but could be better. The voice acting is really great though. While this game has many problems, it is a good first step, and a good one for a LoTR fan.
