This is a fantasy role playing game based on the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien. This game covers the first novel in the trilogy. Although the game follows the book, it also adds plenty of its own elements. Your quest is to carry the one ring to Mordor, and destroy it, thus saving Middle Earth from destruction.
J.R.R. Tolkien is the master behind many top-selling titles placed in the Realm of Middle Earth. His most famous are without a doubt The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. These two have produced a number of games, copycats, animated films and the last also brought us the extremely popular film-trilogy by Peter Jackson. Not many people out there can have missed the epic tale of Frodo Baggins from the Shire.
But if they against all probability have…Then they may soon join hand with other Tolkien fans around the globe and talk actively about the story Lord of the Rings. This game brings you in control of Frodo himself, as he ventures out with his friends to destroy The One Ring! A ring that holds the fate of all Middle-Earth, is in the hands of the most unlikely creature of them all; a hobbit! The Ring promises ultimate power and unquestioned authority, but it tells a lie. The Ring can only bring trouble to anyone who carries it. Sauron, who made The Ring, is always seeking it… and The Ring seeks him. The one can not exist without the other. Frodo must take The Ring to the one place in Middle-Earth it can be destroyed. Back to the very place it was created: Mount Doom! Unfortunately this is in the heart of Saurons realm. And to make matters worse he has sent the Nazgul (Ring-wraiths), his most feared minions to retrieve The Ring from the Shire. Frodo must move with haste if he is to complete his quest. And so the story begins…
Interplay has made one of the best Lord of the Rings game out there, combining a nice interface with great scenery, good gameplay and easy control. You control everything in the game with the mouse, making it very playable and enjoyable. The game follows the story in the book, but it also gives you great freedom in how you want to solve the puzzles, something there is a lot of in the game. As you progress through the game, you will get more side-quest to complete… all the time with the Nazgul right behind you.
Remember to save often in the game, but beware while doing so. The game can only support two different savegames at one time. This is the biggest drawback the game has. Had it not been for this inability to save often and using a lot of different save-games the game would easily have achieved a maximum score, but because of this the game receives only a total of 4.
Nevertheless this is a game that I would definitely recommend!
Lord of the Rings... who doesn't know the fantastic book trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien? This game contains the whole story from the first book. The one ring has been passed to you, Frodo Baggins, from your uncle Bilbo. Aided by your friends Merry and Pippin you now carry that burden to finally destroy it (although that comes in the third book... which no game exists for - at least not in this form). On your way you will also find others willing to help you - including the characters you know from the book (or the movie) like Gandalf, Aragorn and Gimli.
The gameworld is huge and contains many sidequests - however the game is not exactly easy to solve. This one's a sure must for every fan and it makes a great RPG for the advanced player.
Commonly regarded as one of the best Tolkien games ever made, Interplay's adaptation is an excellent blend of RPG and adventure that vividly captures the spirit of Tolkien's worlds through cutscenes and vibrant in-game graphics. The only downsides I can think of for this cult classic are: no automap feature (added in the CD-ROM version) and numerous combats (althought most are avoidable). The game is truly epic in scope and design, and the fact that it does not follow the book too closely leads to numerous side-quests and different paths to the end. Highly recommended.
Ah, Lord of the Rings! The book that started it all... Elves, dwarves, halflings, orcs... None of that existed before the brilliant mind of J.R.R. Tolkien wrote his masterpiece. The book has already made millions of fans and this game closely follows Frodo's voyage.
As expected, Interplay created one fine role playing/adventure game. You will be introduced into the game by a short motion picture intro, described in the book's first chapter. You will learn about Bilbo's adventures, his ring, Gollum, Gandalf and the evil that threatens Shire in which Frodo, the main character lives. Your quest is to go to Mordor, find the eternal fire and destroy the evil ring before Sauron, the evil lord manages to get it from you.
Top-down view, average graphics and great gameplay. You will need a lot of time to complete this great RPG and I asure you that all true LotR fans will be more than pleased!
