Why are all LotR games generic hack n slash?

Upcoming lame Mordor game, LOTR: Conquest, and also The Two Towers, and Return of the King games on the XBox / PS2.

Lord of the Rings the Third Age was great

old school turn based rpg with an interesting side story. Did not think it was a generic hack and slash at all.

The Two Towers and The Returns of the King were great hack n slash's. I don't think they were generic either.

Battle for Middle Earth was a pretty decent RTS game. Though that's pretty ancient, no idea if people still play it...

Though I'd personally like to see a LOTR point and click adventure game from Telltale or alike.

You are literally the first person I've seen say anything bad about it, everyone else thinks it looks great.

and then for the ps2/xbox & I think Gamecube there was LoTR:The Third Age a turn based RPG


Yep, I have it for Gamecube. It was FFX with a LotR skin, so it wasn't f****** annoying like FFX was.

Utter disregard for the lore and awful copy/paste Assassin's Creed gameplay with Arkham Asylum combat.

No it doesn't sound great. AC gets boring fast. The Batman combat is dime a dozen these days with games and again gets boring fast when all you need to remember is the counter button for a flashy cutscene.

Give us an actual LOTR RPG please along the lines of Skyrim or Baulder's Gate.

Equally, give us a large scale Total War-esqe LOTR game.

The thing about Arkham's combat is that it's deep enough to be engaging for pro players but accessible enough to not turn away scrubs.

If all you're doing is mashing the counter button, well that's on you. Don't call the combat shallow when you don't even know how to swim.
