4 out of 5 eggsGood game-Great Co-op

Pros: First, I fully agree with "samgamgee"'s review so will not repeat what he said but add to it.

What he left out and why I gave it 4 stars is the co-op play, which is excellent. The game reminds me of Dragon Age, but a little more arcadish. However, you cannot do co-op in dragon age which was the games fatal flaw because people who like RPGs like to play with others (real people)

Cons: Fights are fun, but you always feel one swing behind what the character is doing when it gets crazy. Voice acting is so bad is funny, I hope it is what they were going for, but I do not think so. Like to see some better spells for the Mage and better looking spells; boring.

The manual SUCKS; I kept changing characters because I did not think the game was upgrading them, only to read in a walk through the AI upgrades automatically, including equipment, and it is best NOT to mess with them. ALSO, as mentioned in the other review you cannot unlock all secrets first time through, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE IF THE MANUAL TOLD ME THAT!

Other Thoughts: For a DND purist, they will only be amused. But to hack and slash spelunkers, they will love the game.

I have not finished the game yet, but based on what I've read; you are wise to play first time through as an Elf and make sure you read a walkthrough; not for spoilers, but to understand how best to play the game. Do not worry about getting lost as game is petty linear.

3 out of 5 eggsWorth playing

Pros: This is a pretty fun game, in my opinion. The graphics are decent, the sound is good, and the gameplay is reasonable. Do not be mislead though, this is a pretty straight forward button-masher, but sometimes that is what the doctor wrote a prescription for. I enjoyed the missions, loved getting to see the Barrow-Downs, and was happy to see some Middle-Earth world locations that are only talked about.

Cons: I was disappointed most by three things.

First I am not a big fan of the control layout, and the lack of customization available for the controls.

Second, in order to complete some of the in-game secret finds you need to use a different character than the one you are currently using. That part is fine, but in order to switch characters you need to get to a game save point, exit the game, and then re-start your game to continue in the chapter as another character.between characters while in-game.

Third and finally, I wasn't very impressed with the characters themselves. Most RPGs are advanced enough to give you a great deal of control over the appearance, sound, and skill set of your characters. You have the most control over the skill sets available to you, but I still felt pretty limited.
