"Liked it "
5 stars"

The best lord of the rings game so far like the way they took it away from the actual characters and introduced new ones a big risk in how much the people will like them.Pulled it off

"A must have for Lotr fans"
4 stars"

This game was one of my first ever rpg experience's after the epicness that was final fantasy X. I can say with vehemence that this game was absolutely beautiful. You play as Berethor a gondorian soldier, and in typical rpg fashion, gather a party and fight the forces of Sauron. But what makes this game a must have for fans of the Lord Of the Rings series is that you somewhat ‘follow’ around the heroes, albeit from a distance, you will help gandalf fight the Balrog in Moria, defend Helms Deep, and fight on the walls of Minas Tirith and finally take part in the epic battle at the Black Gate. These are only some of the epic battles you will be involved in and I certainly reccomend it. On the downside the main character tends to be a bit over powered compared to the rest of your party members and there are some frustrating parts, but still a fun experience.

Description

Experience the first console roleplaying game (RPG) set in The Lord of the Rings universe in The Lord of the Rings, The Third Age from EA GAMES. Travel in the wake of the Fellowship in a unique structure that allows players to explore their own path while periodically intersecting the major events of New Line Cinema’s film trilogy. Traverse through both familiar and seldom-glimpsed locations as you fight to save or destroy Middle-earth in an epic adventure. Encounter the demonic Balrog in the Mines of Moria, defend the fallen city of Osgiliath, or try to destroy Helm’s Deep. These choices and many more will confront you as you align yourself with the people of Middle-earth or undertake missions on behalf of Sauron.

Play as all-new characters from Middle-earth, interacting with the heroes, villains, and supporting cast who populate the world. Your heroes or villains are completely upgradeable, allowing you to enhance their weapons, fighting style, and attributes. Then you will embark on a free-roaming adventure where you can complete the primary objectives or seek out the various side quests and uncover hidden characters, secret weapons, and powerful items.

Dispatch the forces of light or shadow with an innovative turn-based battle system. Ride horses or Wargs and charge through your foes. Use your leadership skills to maximize your party and unleash devastating attacks as you fight alongside or against key characters from the films such as Aragorn, Gandalf, and the Balrog.

Explore a beautiful and realistic world that features assets from all of the films, voice acting from the original actors, and motion capture from the films’ stunt doubles.

Features:
  • Play on the side of light or shadow. In an adventure that intersects the main plot points of the film trilogy, battle on the side of the Fellowship in their quest to save Middle-earth or unlock the evil missions where you fight on the side of Sauron.
  • Deep gameplay that expands all three films. Travel to familiar and unfamiliar places such as the Mines of Moria, Helm’s Deep, Pelennor Fields, Minas Tirith, and a host of unexpected locations like the White Mountains Plains.
  • Customize your hero or villain: Upgrade your character with an in-depth skill tree system where you can acquire unique skills in melee combat, ranged weaponry, defense, and magic.
  • Discover a vast array of weapons, armor and clothing, and other Middle-earth items.
  • Free-roaming gameplay. Explore, take on side quests, and uncover secret characters to join your party, or special weapons and items to boost your existing characters.
  • Fight alongside or against key characters from The Lord of the Rings such as Aragorn, Gandalf, Legolas, Eowyn, and the Balrog.
  • New user-controlled cameras keep players aware of everything around them.
  • Innovative turn-based battle system allows you to fight on horseback or Warg and define the rules of engagement.
  • Voiceover from the original actors and footage from all three The Lord of the Rings films.
