Trivia

The Scouring of the Shire event was never featured, although it was hinted in The Mirror of Galadriel that Ted Sandyman has taken over the Shire possibly under the orders of both Lotho Sackville-Baggins and Lobelia Sackville-Baggins who hired Ruffians to take over the Shire and they dug up Bag end and kicked Gaffer out of his home. The Ruffians industrialized the Shire, by tearing down the old mill and replaced it with a brick factory, dug and burned the lands, cut the trees down including the big tree, made hobbits slaves or imprisoned them and locked up Lobelia. Later on Saruman and Wormtongue took over the Shire after being expelled from Isengard. Wormtongue murdered Lotho Sackville-Baggins. Later on in "The Return of the King" as Frodo, Sam, Merry, Pippin are heading home, they hear bad news from Barliman Butterbur at the Prancing Pony Inn that the Shire has been taken over and ruined by Ruffians, they quickly return home without Gandalf who talks to Tom Bombadil. Frodo and his companions storm in the homelands of the Shire, they talk to Farmer Cotton and rouse up the Hobbits who stand up against the Ruffians including Ted Sandyman who went into hiding and was never heard from again. After fighting at The Battle of Bywater and killing 100 ruffian men, they go to Hobbiton to have a showdown against Saruman and Wormtongue who took over their home at Bag End. Wormtongue rises up against Saruman and kills him with a knife and was shot by arrows and dies. Frodo, Sam, Merry, Pippin cleans up the Shire and rescues Lobelia who gives them back their home before she died. Sam plants a new seed Galadriel gave to him and a new tree sprung up and Sam marries Rose Cotton and has children, but Frodo leaves for the Grey Havens for good to heal his tortured wounds from the one ring. Since the game didn't get to the Scouring of the Shire events, it's unlikely that there will ever be an event due to the fact that "The Fellowship of the Ring" ended on a cliffhanger and the video game sequels were cancelled.

Also the journey involving Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas traveling to Rohan on foot and meeting Gandalf the White is missing as well as the war against Sarumans Uruk Hai army at the fort of Helms Deep. Merry and Pippins journey in Fangorn Forest with Treebeard and the Ents and the invasion of Isengard. Saruman and Wormtongue being expelled from Isengard has never been shown in the game. See more »

Enjoyable Adventure Game
16 April 2003 | by bbagnallSee all my reviews

After having read other poor reviews for this XBox game, I had low expectations going into it. Surprisingly, I enjoyed this game. I expected the book version of Lord of the Rings, not the movie version, and that is what I got. Yes, the movie was amazing, but the storyline is also great and that is what this game recreates. There is very little action in the game, which is what I suspect most people had a problem with. This is an adventure game with some action elements, not the other way around. It is a little similar to the questing Gameplay of Zelda N64 games but not as well done - can any game do it as good as Zelda?

The graphics are amazing, of course far better than the N64 Zelda. I would say on par with the graphics in Halo, and the recreation of the Shire is amazing. All around Frodo, the environment is alive. Swallows fly around, swooping down low. Insects buzz around and leaves fall off the trees. Clouds flow through the sky, and smoke billows out of chimneys. Water is beautiful.

This game is a must have for fans of the Lord of the Rings books. It is not perfect, but there are no other Lord of the Rings games out there with this kind of scope. What are you waiting for, someone else to make a LOTR game that is better? It is not going to happen, so you might as well play this one.
