Lord of the Rings: Tactics (PSP)

 

It must have taken some careful planning and a lot of good luck for the decent people of Middle-earth to overcome the wicked military maneuverings of Sauron's armies. This conflict is abstracted down to a 3D turn-based strategy game in The Lord of the...

The Lord of the Rings: Tactics review for the PSP

 

Not so precious.

Commanding dark forces; Looks and sounds like Middle-Earth

But doesn\'t play like it; Overly simple combat and strategy; Awkward menus and interface

The Lord of the Rings: Tactics can't figure out if it wants to appeal to casual fans of the film or nerdy purists, although ultimately it casts both groups into the fiery pit from whence they came. Despite its solid delivery and the admittedly groovy...

A cool twist on turn-based strategy can't overcome the many clunky bits in EA's trip to Mordor.

Clunky interface; little distinction between units; generally shoddy presentation

Taking turns to gut Frodo like a furry-footed fish.

If this was just War In Middle-Earth using freshly rolled characters there would be no confusion, but it isn't and so you get a rather weedy Aragorn to build up and a Legolas with initially all the archery skill of, well, us. Get used to such silliness...

Good Game

 

This is properly the best lord of the rings game you can get on a games consol (tho i havn't played conquest yet). Mordor mode is so much easier than the fellowship when on the same difficulty but mordor is more fun. I realy enjoyed the game and it is...

Lotr pep

 

Lotr, does what it says on the tin. Good cinematic scenes between gameplay. Are you Good or Evil ? Find out for yourself, worth playing.

Consumer review by:

Pleasant

 

The word pleasant is definitely appropriate for this game. Neither terrible or brilliant but occupying a middle ground that fails to arouse passion but nevertheless keeps you drawn in so it is possible to play it in a fairly intensive manner. It...
