This game is completely different from any other Lord of the Rings game but still is one at the core. Most people will not like this game because you do not get to play as the normal characters and because of how you control your team. By controlling your team I mean you only get to play as one of the three at a time and the CPU controls the other two and decides what equipment to use. There is a multiplayer option for this game. This is also the only Lord of the Rings game to get the rated M for mature rating. This got this rating because of the gore and some of the killing scenes where you cut off limbs, heads and other things. Now in saying that, this game does not show near the gore that God of War 3 showed. I love the game and feel it is worth a buy!
