descriptionWhat's more epic and medieval than turn-based battles? As The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age shows, the two go together like an Orc and ugly.You play as Berethor, a Gondor captain, and Idrial, an elf, as they journey through Middle-earth to stop the minions of Sauron. Broken up into nine chapters, The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age pits your party against the dregs of Middle-earth in familiar settings. Defend the city of Osgiliath, track down the Balrog in the Mines of Moria and try to destroy Helm’s Deep. The Third Age does a great job of incorporating this mythical quest into the LOTR trilogy.The Third Age boasts 109 sequences, complete with footage from the Peter Jackson trilogy, in which Gandalf narrates how your journey fits into the LOTR universe. LOTR fans will be in heaven with these sequences, but watching them is not vital if you just want to plow ahead. As exciting as the movie clips are, the graphics and artwork during gameplay are nothing short of amazing. From the architectural details on columns to the smallest leaf in the forest, EA Games went the extra mile to bring Middle-earth to life.RPG purists may scoff at The Third Age's linear storyline. The side-quests lack novelty, since they mostly involving searching for and destroying bands of enemies you'll find in the main game. The leveling-up, weapons and battle-system all qualify as standard RPG fare. One twist The Third Age adds to the genre is a skill-learning system. Every time a character you control successfully performs a special attack, he or she earns one point toward learning a new skill. Usually, you're given a choice as to which skill you'd like your character to learn first.For LOTR fans, though, The Third Age is a terrific introduction to the RPG genre. Besides, you get to be evil. Evil!Tired of beating up on the bad guys? Turn the tables and play as Sauron's troublemakers in Evil Mode. Once you clear a chapter by making nice, a section unlocks in Evil Mode. Evil Mode lets you re-enact the major battles from a chapter, this time taking the role of the bad guys. After you defeat the heroes in a battle, you move to the next battle to defeat the heroes again. If you clear each Evil Mode chapter, you're given a prize to use in your main quest. Killing your heroes to make them stronger on their quest? Man, that's harsh. But in Middle-earth, you take every advantage you can get.
