Great little game

If you’re a big fan of Lord of the Rings will you Enjoy Then; short answer YES I think this game is awesome, hack and slash type game I played though the single player solo and have to say good story line and great game play, but it’s more enjoyable when you fire up COOP Mode with a friend and kill orcs together Sadly the only thing lacking is once you complete normal mode and go to the harder modes the AI can lack quite a bit in solo and you spend most times keeping them alive then you do kicking orcs butt so that’s why coop mode is a lot better You can also do wave mode well challenge modes to see what wave you can get up to which is also fun with Coop players Sadly the game I thought was a bit short and once you’ve completed it you can keep replying it for better loot and maybe do the challenge modes but sadly that’s it Just to note you have to change your steam client settings to turn off your microphone if you don’t use it in the game otherwise it stays on and the other players will just hear the echo of your game on the speaking which can get a little annoying if random people join your lobby and refuse to turn off the mic or change the setting It’s a great game and worth it just for the single player and coop modes but as I say once you’ve completed it on normal and replay on the other 2 harder modes then well nothing else to do then replay for loot and wave modes


Great Co-Op, mediocre single player

If you're a fan of lord of the rings then get this. If you're a fan of Co-Op then get this. If you're going to play this on your own...then think twice. This game is excellent when played with friends because of the orc slaying chaos. Trading loot with friends throughout the game is so good because it makes you converse a great deal with them. This game is the perfect co-op experience... so just get it! If you're playing in single player though then, even though the ai of your teammates is good you'll start to notice the games flaws and discover how repetitive the combat can be. So if you wanted a great single player experience... then just don't get it... you'll be disappointed. Thankfully I had a friend to play with though so I loved it to bits :D
