GBA Review - 'LotR: The Fellowship of the Ring'

by The Cookie Snatcher on Oct. 20, 2002 @ 3:49 a.m. PDT | Filed under Reviews

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, is a single player lite-RPG where the player follows the storyline of The Fellowship of the Ring, the first volume of J.R.R. Tolkien's saga. Throughout the game, the player will have control over the Fellowship members, at times controlling up to nine characters at once. This title is considered a lite-RPG since it will streamline the usual number-crunching found in most RPG's and simplify it to a more action-oriented, quick-paced format.

The game brings fear and suspense to unimaginable levels, with a compelling plot and unique gameplay elements based upon action, evasion, trust and fear.
