    "I absolutely love this game. I love the graphics, the music, and the varied missions. So far I have only completed 20 of the 25 missions, and I know when I complete the final five it will be bittersweet. I do wish there were few more options to customize though such as the ability to set hot keys."

    "This is a beautiful game that seems to have a few glitches. It's been known to crash. Also, this is geared more toward the average person who occasionally likes games, and not for hard-core gamers. Kids over a certain age who like the moves will enjoy this when it's working well. "

    "If you're looking for a great Lord of the Rings game and free play at that, The Lord of the Rings Online is a great option. All of the features are fun and intriguing and there is even an option to pay the monthly subscription if you'd like to become a VIP member and do even more. The game does have a few shortcomings, such as making battling difficult, but overall it's a fun and entertaining game."

    "The Lord of the Rings series is some of the best world building fantasy novel that has ever been created. It is a book that transport you to a world where Elves exist, and Dwarfs actually live in caves. It is a majestic fantasy land that I want to see in video games. Make a great game that uses The Lord of the Rings as a story and you will have a game I want to play. This game does a great job of satisfying that LOTR video game itch. "

    "Middle Earth - Shadow of War is an awesome role playing game. The graphics are very realistic and the story line is true to Lord of the Rings. The goal is to Forge a new Ring of Power, conquer Fortresses in massive battles and dominate countries with your personal army. It is a fun game, but can be a bit gory and bloody, which is why it is Rated M. Highly recommend."
