Gazilion years later this game is still fun
12 February 2016 | by nikolaibgSee all my reviews

Recently the nostalgia got the best of me and decided to give this game a nice rerun. I remember how much fun i had when was kid and how much i struggled till i learn how to push the ladders down :D

Mind the fact that i played this game on PC , i know on consoles it had terrible camera but i still gave it 10.

But lets begin .this game "follow" the story of the movie and in my option it follows it good for game . Most of the games based on movies are terrible fast cash and grab . But not this game . There was some nice love put in here. Is your basic hack and slash, but the levels are nice made, the difficulty is set well and there have been put some extra work overall . Especially the graphics which have aged quite well .The only problem i had with this game , is to short you can finish it in 4-5 hours . But for reward for finishing a level you get a nice interview with few of the cast of the movie, which in my option fix the issue

Any way if you came here by nostalgia give it another go is still awesome . And if your thinking to try this old game same ,you wont be disappointed especially if your LOTR fan :)
