I would say buy it. I haven't played too long yet, but if glitches can be avoided this is actually a pretty good game, especially for 13$ on amazon.

Good skill trees, upgrade your stats, combat is ok, 3 characters, gear changes your appearance, a bit of exploration, LotR story.

For that price, yeah, it's worth it. Beyond that, it's poor value for money.

yes for 13 bucks sure. I think I payed 30 and felt kinda robbed at the end. This is one of my ps3 games I have only played once. Not really that much desire to play again. well SOME day, when I totally forget how it looks and feels.

for 13 bucks, sure. for 30, nope.

Thank you for sharing.

I just recently started learning about this title... it looks kind of similar to Mass Effect/Dragon Age in how you have dialogue choices with various characters, only with hack-n-slash gameplay. Is that remotely accurate?

Dialogue choices don't influence the game. All you get for your choices is alternate responses from who you are talking to but in the end leads to the same final response more or less.

Dialogue choices simply give more LOTR lore. It has no influence on the way the game plays out.

is the gold that farin mines good for anything other than selling?

I initially had to put the game away 10% into first chapter, from how much I disliked the gameplay. Or so I thought.

Problem is that if you charge into enemies the way most action games reward you for, you end up swarmed and stun-locked.

When I picked it up again, I realized that it is actually more of a tactical game of positioning, and not about slicing enemies up as fast as possible.

Since realizing this, the game gone from total garbage to near perfection in my eyes. I find myself loving pretty much everything about it..
