I have the PC version of this and never even got through that part at the beginning where you have to evade the Nazgul. So I've ended up playing only the 20 minutes of fetch quests at the beginning, hooray.

Maybe the worst part is that one of them spots you, he draws his sword and demands you "hand over the Ring" (prompting game over) - very unnazgullike.

Heh. That's where I got stuck on the Xbox version, Sash! I sold it, of course. That was the first game I think I got for my original Xbox. What a disappointment it was!

What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

EmP finds typo:

unusable earlier because Ringwraiths can see through it’s magic

Its, not it's.

Good review though: nice job. Maybe I should try and re-type the Third Age review that died with the server.


For us. For them. For you.

Haha. It is a hard game to get into at first. I think I almost gave up at the beginning because it was taking me hours to get past that part... It does get better, though, so I'm glad I stuck through it.

And the Nazgul also say that when you wear the Ring too long. But since you rarely have to use it, there's no real chance of that happening.

And thanks, EmP! If that's the only typo I missed out of the five or so proofreads I made, then I'm happy.

I'd be even happier if you did try to rewrite that Third Age review. Part of my reason for writing this was my hope that writing this would motivate you to try and pick that up again (and hopefully complete it). That'd be awesome. I remember really liking the draft you had in there...

This was a game I traded in quite fast compared to any other I owned. Good thing is the Two Towers and Return of the King games where good.


Steampunk?

If I remember correctly, this game was made to follow the "books" more than the actual movie and for that I rejoiced. It started out fun, with exploring the Shire, the music was nice and ambiental and I actually had fun.

Then I died.


And died again.

Then I got Aragorn and kicked some arse until I was waylaid by a huge troll. I saved my game just as the troll was swinging his club half a mile away from me. Game saved, I was ready to unleash holy judgement upon the beast only to find out that the attack connected from that far away and killed me in one blow. So basically, I saved the game while in an non escapable trap and the only way out was to restart the game.

Needless to say, the game's disc is now a permanent stain on the pavement, five floors below my apartment.
