Been playing through this game with two friends and it is a blast. Graphics are pretty good, especially the character models. Combat is very visceral and fun, with the various special abilities mixing in with quick-time like critical hits. Yes, it can be repetitive, but I can't think of any video game which does not contain repetitive combat mechanics. Throughout the campaign I still looked forward to each fight. There are a great many secrets to keep you checking each nook and cranny of the levels (which are fairly linear) and lots of gear/weapon types. Playing co-op is fantastic, but I cannot speak to the AI for teammates when playing solo. If you like the old Baulder's Gate Dark Alliance games, or even the Diablo/Borderlands combat-for-loot formula, and enjoy the LOTR universe, give this game a try.
