This game has a lot of good thought behind it with the way you can increase all or just one characters stats. If you enjoy replaying missions to earn ever increasing ability points and the LOTR theme you will most likley enjoy this game. There are no heart pounding moves so if you need something fast paced pass this up, especially if you don't care for LOTR, otherwise its a great buy for long playability.

Product Overview

Return to Middle-earth in this tactical RPG where you decide the fate of The Third Age. Build a Fellowship of heroes or create the ultimate force of evil with hundreds of skill, weapon, and ability upgrades at your disposal. Send your heroes and villains from The Lord of the Rings into battle across legendary locations from the film trilogy and J.R.R. Tolkien's fiction. Seize the high ground, set traps, and ambush the enemy in intense single-player battles or strategic multiplayer skirmishes. The board is set, the pieces are in motion. Middle-earth awaits you.

Waht Is Tactics?
While The Lord of the Rings: Tactics, may be the first handheld, tactical role-playing game (RPG) to be set in Middle-earth, it's not the first Tactics game of its kind. Tactical RPGs have been around since the early '90s and have enjoyed a high level of success in Japan.

What defines a Tactical RPG is its unique, turn-based strategic gameplay, performed on an isometric grid. In a tactical RPG, you typically control a party of eight to ten characters and battle a similar number of human- or computer-controlled enemies. The chessboard-like gameplay offers a lot of maneuverability; you can attack, counter-attack, change positions, or even exploit terrain to your advantage in the course of one turn. In many respects, tactical RPGs can be considered a fusion of traditional RPGs with turn-based strategy.

In The Lord of the Rings: Tactics, the action is made more gripping due to the evolutionary ability to take turns simultaneously. In this way, you can move every character you control during each turn, and what's more, you can do it without waiting for your opponent to make his or her move. This means you spend more time in gameplay and less time waiting, opening a whole new level of strategic warfare.

The Lord of the Rings: Tactics employs assets from both the acclaimed film trilogy and J.R.R. Tolkien's beloved fiction to bring the world of handheld tactical RPG gaming to the world of Middle-earth. Return to Middle-earth and experience new strategic gameplay only to be found in The Lord of the Rings: Tactics, exclusively on the PlayStation Portable.
