I wanted to make a little discussion on LOTR based games, or if you play one which one?
I play Battle for Middle-earth 2 and the expansion, Do you?

I ignored the games based on the movies when they first came out, and finally asked for and received the FotR and the RotK games last Christmas, but could get neither of them running on my WIN 98 computor and could no longer find any online support for them. So that was a big bust.

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.

The strategy games are kinda tough to finish, especially if you are evil :)

Playing with evil is pretty easy if you use the following cheat: hit 'Enter' and type 'M3lk0r Rul3zzz!!!!'.

My grandson messed with my computer and finally was able to get the 'LOTR: Fellowship of the Ring. movie game to run Sunday and I have started playing it. I've just encountered the first Ringwraith at Gaffer Gamgee's and have yet to successfully run away from it.

I own LotR: Battle for Middle-Earth 2 and LotR: The Third Age. Both are extremely good games. I especially like the parts in the Third Age where it ties into the book/movie. Battle for Middle-Earth 2 is a fun game too, especially the War of the Ring minigame thingy. I am a fan of RTS games (Real-time Strategy. Battle for Middle-Earth 1&2 are examples.) :D
I am very pleased with both games!

I have somewhere the old Lord of the Rings strategy type computer game for the Commodore 64; though I never played it much. I decided I didn't like strategy war games. I also have both The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings text and graphic games by Wessely-Addison for the C=64 they are like the old Zork text games, but have almost full screen static pictures while you are texting. I was never able to get Bilbo to Lake Town or Frodo past Rivendell.
