Thread: LOTR Computer games
I play Battle for Middle-earth 2 and the expansion, Do you?
I have a couple text based games for my Commodore 64 on for The Hobbit and another for the Fellowship; and also a war strategy LotR game. I never completed any of these.
I am very pleased with both games!
i don't really like the newer games that have come out.. im one of the older rpg players
Does Any 1 play this game and add me as a friend we'll play some time.itll be FUN i love that game though i wish they would have put more effort in it like umm...... if your playing elfs i wish u could be playin just lorien forces or mirkwood forces or rivendell forces not all put together. u know Same for men. u eather play rohans armies or gondors armies and u would be able to call for reinforcements from rohan if u were gondor u know!
I think you go to a hill behind the Gaffer and wait there on the top to see the pattern of where the Nazgul are going, there's one thats galloping around, once he's gone right, you run down into the field and keep on going until you come to the road, look both ways and run... From there I think your at the mill or near it... You come the bridge next, there's one Rider the other side, just lure him away with rocks, preferably further away from you ... After that there's some wolves, there aren't any Nazgul here, so go nuts beating them with yer stick... I think there's another bridge and then you come to another boulder...
I think at the boulder you throw a stone a little bit ahead of the Nazgul waiting there, he'll run to it, then you run to the other side of the boulder your hiding behind, and throw another rock in front of you, but towards and near the boulder you were hiding and then run past while he is looking around for the second rock... It taken me a few times, but that's the best way I think... I've tried it so many times, I've memorized it
I gave up on the barrow downs, I lost Sam, Merry and Pippin and kept getting killed by the Barrow-Wights
i am a programmer by my education and i can't get it working
Thanks Loss, one of these days I'll get back to it. Right now I'm playing the original Dungeon Siege game using the DS:Legend of Aranna engine and Kingmaker using the original Neverwinter Nights engine.
if you want help whit the rotk i might be able to help you
edit: hehe finally got my game creator software and a better computer for running it.. give me a few months and i will try to get you something nice.. like a demo
A review by arath
By far this game stays most loyal to the storyline even whit the few changes to stop the game from getting too long... it offers a tolkien fan fun for atleast one time to fully play thru.
the fact that there are some levels in where you just adventure whitout fighting.. give a nice addition to the a game and reveals more on the actual fellowship.
fitting voice-actors ( i liked them )
excellent demos (a bit blurry but...)
in some points absurdly difficult
the "stiffnes" of the battlesystem (as you complete the combo you leave yourself open to attacks)
few minor bugs:
gimli gets stuck in moria in several points
in some levels the music is a bit off sync
the game is a bit too easy if not included the absurdly difficult parts..
all in all:
-A excellent game whit alot of content.
-A bit too short perhaps...
-it is great to see that boromir does not die in the end
-8 / 10
if you are a tolkien fan then this is a must have game
grond do you know how to fight trolls proper?
In Neverwinter Nights I have found acid arrows or bolts, or an acid blade works well against Trolls. Of course if they are Stone Trolls or Stone Golums, a sonic screwdriver works best. If you are lacking one of those, use a sonic hammer or blade. I have yet to meet any trolls in the LotR games; I'm still trying to get Frodo to Bywater.
more like a adventure game
i can kill the trolls in fotr but it takes a lot of time and is difficult when there are two
You should take advantage from that opportunity to see if it is your kind of a game.
The graphics are stunning, each time i went up a hill and looked down, i would stare at the beautiful landscape for several minutes.
And it's one of the few Mmo's with a storyline
If you decide to buy it, send me a pm
Can't wait to battle the "Watcher" ^^
Well, I see there are (or were) quite a few here who played these games. I have played both BfME games, and slightly prefer the first. I've played the Third Age on Nintendo Gamecube, and a little bit of Aragorn's Quest and LoTR Conquest. I play LoTRO mostly. I would think that the number of LOTRO players has increased since the game went free-to-play. I myself would not have started if it hadn't been free-to-play. I love how that game is only partly based on the movies, and is also based on the books. For example, in the character creation screen, it says how or by whom each class was inspired by. Some are obvious, like the Hunter being inspired by Legolas, but then there's classes inspired by Celebrimbor and Luthien Tinuviel. Also, I just met Tom Bombadil. It's also one of the few MMORPG's that are story-driven. And it's a really good story too!
Hi Rukain, I have all the movie tie ins but am on Xbox so couldnt get Aragorn's Quest...... Whats it like?
Cant wait for Lego LOTR's the trailers are great!
Here is the Halloween Lego Merri & Pippin Special short!
I have actually never played Xbox...or even touched one. I have none of the movie tie ins, but I'd like to play them sometime. Aragorn's Quest is the story, told by Sam to his children, of Aragorn's part in the Lord of the Rings. It plays sort of like repeated flachbacks, alternating between the present, (playing as one of Sam's sons, I think it was Frodo) and the past, or the story (Playing as Aragorn). I never finished it, but what i played was good. The graphics weren't great in my opinion, though.
The Halloween vid was awesome! and I too can't wait for the LEGO LoTR games.
Has anyone played the old PC game "The Lord of the Rings: Volume 1" from Interplay? It came out around 1990. It's my favorite LOTR game (and actually, one of my favorite PC games of all time).
