Overall: I've been waiting a long time for a game like this. I was a HUGE fan of the FF series. I've had a problem with RPG's since systems got good enough to do real time fighting.

Sure there are times where it works, but I miss my old-school turn based RPG. This game is exactly that. It's just a big battle, and it's all turn-based.
Gameplay: Gameplay. All right, you fight. That's about it. They didn't bother with a new angle or anything. You follow in the footsteps of the Fellowship through all the movies and you fight. Sometimes alongside them, sometimes not. The game is ALL fighting though. It's good that I've been dying to play a turn based RPG for so long because even I thought that it was getting a little old by the end. The game is really, ONLY FIGHTING.
Graphics: PRETTY, PRETTY, PRETTY. The old RPG's just looked so bad. This one, I hope, can re-kindle a dying gernre.
Sound: nice. I don't have the best audio system. But it was nice. Nothing spectacular, but it certainly isn't a downside.
Suggestions: One important suggestion. A PLOT! I know that the movie was already written in stone. But you could've done something. One of the greatest parts of your game was in Moria. It's great because you are aiding the Fellowship without their knowledge. When I watch the movie I could think that I was on the other side of that door helping them out. You decided to have no impaginations whatsoever! The key to any successful RPG will always be story. You need one.
