    A Lot of Fun but Easy to Get Lost

    The innovative and interesting game mechanics are the real highlight of this game. It plays a lot like the Batman Arkham or Assain's Creed games only set in Middle Earth. Easily the best part of this game is the Nemises system where enemies that either escape or defeat you in battle pop back up as you quest through this open world. The story was interesting enough, but often you get so side tracked by mini quests or trying to hunt down that one enemy that keeps killing you it's easy to get lost.

    Now many people say this game is not that great. After playing it for about 10 hours and have finished 2 main missions and 3 of the side mission and 1 other mission within this game, tells me that I can put into this game easily 50+ hours and maybe get halfway through. I'm playing this to get all the perks and stat upgrades I can before tackling the harder captians and war chiefs. This game is awesome I love it and has made a great addition to my massive game collection.

    After hearing about this game and reading reviews, I decided to buy this game. The game is really fun to play with a vast open world. Can get difficult at times when you get many enemies surrounding you, but if they kill you, you get to get your revenge on the one that did kill you. But, not after they level up first. I'd recommend this game to anybody who doesn't have it.

    Very entertaining, can become repetitive

    Game play and storyline are excellent. The open map is fun, ability to target enemies for future battles, and types of attacks are exceptionally fun. Only criticism is the storyline could be a bit more interesting and the side missions can become redundant. Overall great purchase and would definitely look forward to a sequel.

    If you like games with options, many worlds, great graphics and a fun story line just offset from the movies to seem authentic and yet new, this is your game. What is also great is that it is not so in-depth that it will consume all of your time. It is truly a blast to play. With enough options to keep you interested but keeps the action going.

    Great game overall, especially when compared to other Lord of the Rings games. The story is pretty interesting unlike some revews say, gameplay is easy to figure out and fighting is not really button-mashing. It was actually challenging at parts. Although there was more to do than the story, i wish it was a bit longer even though its already pretty lengthy.

    Great game, really enjoyed it. Plays some what like the batman arkham games but that's just a similarity because it's also very different due to the "medieval" factor. Does get slightly repetitive once you've gone far enough, but does have little affects that keep you going and good story line and looking videos

    With all of the amazing reviews that I saw online I was sure that I was in for a new gaming experience. And while the game had beautiful graphics and fit nicely into the storyline of the Hobbit franchise, I quickly felt that i was simply playing a semi-medieval version of GTA. Not really anything new.

    If you are a fan of the LOTR saga this is a must own. The feeling of slicing off the head of an ork is exhilarating. A time before Bilbo and frodo sets the stage for an amazing journey. Excellent gameplay. The combat style of batman combined with the stealth of assassins creed makes a great combo.

    Bought this game and couldn't stop playing until I beat the last boss. And it's still not even done! The game was priced as used but it looked perfectly new. I got it for basically free by purchasing it with best buy reward points and buying a drink to go over the $20 I had saved up in certificates.

    This game is great. It plays similarly to the Batman Arkham games. It is an open world third person action game. Its pretty violent and it does not matter if you are into Lord of the Rings lore or not. I had a really good time playing through this game and would highly recommend it.

    The delivery was a bit delayed, but worth the wait! Thank you for bringing it to my front door. This saved me time as the nearest Best Buy is not close to my house. I had moved to an area without a Best Buy, but you do have the best products for the best prices out there. Thank you for everything!!!

    This story starts off a bit slow and it can be a little tricky starting off as the majority of your powers are locked. However, a you progress further and begin learning the mechanics of the game, it presents almost limitless challenges and puzzles with the nemesis system. Great game, quality buy

    This is a very addicting game. There is enough structure so that you know exactly what you need to do next however there is freedom to roam the open-world and fight as you see fit. I especially enjoyed to randomized and evolving class of Orc leaders, something I found unique to this game.

    Game play is smooth and content is really graphic. Definitely not suitable for kids! Very challenging and the more you die the harder the game gets. You have to sneak around and patiently attack from distance. Rushing in is not possible and if you like run and gun, buy a different game!

    The graphics on the xbox one game is significantly better than the 360 version. I really enjoyed this game when I first played it. It will probably not have any teplay value after you pass it but it has many places and abilities to explore the first time around.

    This game was a great deal of fun. Running around and killing orcs. Game play was smooth, graphics were great, and the finishing moves were awesome. However, things got repetitive...go find this boss and then mash buttons until he goes down.

    I really like this game. The graphics are pretty descent and the story line is good. Overall there is really nothing bad to say about the game. If you like the previous lord of the ring games you will definitely enjoy this one.

    This is easily one of my favorite games of the past few years. For fans of the Assassin's Creed and Batman series, you will find a lot to enjoy here. Add in the Lord of the Rings story and you really have something special. Great game!

    This was one of my favorite games of the year. Plays a lot like the batman series of games but introduces sword fighting and different powers that makes the fights really unique. Can't say I've ever played a game quite like this before.
