But the nods to the traditional Tolkienesque fantasy setting are as countless as they are obvious. It's no wonder that EA decided to publicise the game by putting out a load of bizarre trailers showing a whole bunch of fighting and shagging while Marilyn Manson rasps away in the background. But is the final game really as desperately adolescent as those trailers might've suggested, or was it just a ploy to get the kids interested since fantasy nerds were already paying attention anyway?"
