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.
