Being a bit of a LOTR freak (everything except the online version, for some reason), I've either bought, lent or copied previous LOTR games =)

Oh, got memories of the 1980's!

Quite good feature...

I'm ashamed to admit I remember that game. Why does it look so bad now... I was sure it had the best graphics ever! ;)

George RR Martin's a Song of Ice and Fire really needs doing!!!

This game sounds great for its time and I guess you can explain the "I don't care" aproach to the characters was their attempt at a "free world" game, which I'm sure must've been quite unique at the time!
