The Lord of the Rings Video Games

     It may seem odd that I have a post about Lord of the Rings video games. I can ensure you that some of them are not only entertaining but add quite a bit of story for Tolkien fans.

1.Lord of the Rings Battle for Middle Earth 2(BFMEII) For PC and Xbox 360

    BFME2 is a strategy game for the PC/360 whose plot mainly deals with the War in the North. There is a good and evil campaign. The good campaign deals with trying to defeat Sauron's forces in the north while the evil campaign is an alternative version of the War of the North where Sauron's forces win. BFME 2 is a fairly old game, but it can be found on ebay. Below is a link to a Youtube video that displays gameplay. 

2.The Lord of the Rings Online (LORTRO) For PC

     LOTRO is a online game that takes place during the Fellowship of the Ring. LOTRO is a good game because it is a massively multiplayer online game (MMOG). This means that while you are exploring and playing this game, you will meet other players(most likely Lord of the Rings fans) with whom you can create long lasting friendships. LOTRO can be downloaded from http://www.lotro.com/. Be warned that since LOTRO is a MMOG it can be highly addictive(think World of Warcraft) so moderation of gameplay time is highly recommended. A Youtube video is provided below.

3.The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest For PS3, PS2 PSP, DS, and Wii

     Aragorn's Quest takes place after the three novels. You are a young hobbit who listens to tales, from Sam the Wise, about some of Aragorn's adventures. During the gameplay segments, you are able to play as Aragorn and a second player can drop in and play as Gandalf. A gameplay video is provided below. 

   I hope the information I have provided is helpful.

"Lord of the Ring Return of the King" was a really fun hack and slash game. The game is a very entertaining with up-gradable characters so you don't get bored of game play. It is linear to a lot of the scenes and battles from the movie. It is an oldie but a goodie as people say.
