what the f I aint never heard of this
Just downloaded it, never heard of it before, will try it later tonight..
Official release date is Tues 13th for the DS version I believe, just got it.. trailer for the PC version looks a bit like WoW... cant see them squeezing anything remotely like it into a DS cart. Trims to 60mb.
Doesnt look bad but the controlls I dont really like.
Plus the game runs so slow as if the framerate is really low.
You can switch between button and stylus, buttons are not good enough though for navigation.. My main gripe is, you dont standout enough in the game, you get lost in the shuffle in close combat. Ill give it a bit of a playthrough though.....
You start slow but you can increase speed with the picking up of orbs
is it compatible with R4 card or do you need to patch it
This is the european version the north american version is this january13th
lets hope the US version fixes the frame rate and controls
Works fine on R4.
Bit like dungeon siege or warcraft 3 campaign mode.
Linear levels with heroes/abilities and drones. Graphics are god-awful and the font is migraine inducing.
I think the graphics look surprisingly good on DS. Not sure what you're talking about regarding the fonts, either. Text is fine.
Anyway, this is a very good game so far. I like the mix of real-time action and strategy. Only played a bit of it, but I look forward to seeing what the rest of the game has to offer.
BTW, unless I missed something, this marks the first LotR games on DS. Not sure why it took so long, but I'm glad it seems to be something of substance.
Hm, I'll try this out. Hoping to pick up the PC version when it comes out.
Don't expect this one'll hold a candle to the console releases though, so I'll just use this as a taster.
Just tested it, it's like battlefield, but in the LotR universe...
Well,It can be fun, but on DS???
It's an OK game. but what would have made it better
-More strategic elements
-Being able to see the enemy from afar, rather than walking straight up to them and letting the game load.
Yeh I tested it too. It could've been better with more of a BattleFront style view like PSZ has. Is it THAT hard to make a game on the DS which is as playable as the other platforms? Still, better than I expected and a trip down memory lane with the objectives in the style of Battlefront which I played for months.
Poor thug, still posting releases D:
I wonder if it would be possible for someone to make a 3rd person camera view hack for this like Phantom Hourglass had.
That'd make this game muuuuuuch more fun.
? like phantom hourglass ?
what kind of hack ? tell me ?
You mean, a hack to make the camera behave like Phantom hourglass's camera behaved or do you mean a hack, like a hack phantom hourglass had which I do not know about XD tongue twister Because I think the camera is as good as it's gonna get nearing Phantom Hourglass standards. I just wish they could make a hack to make the camera a little bit easier to see ahead especially playing as a big unit taking up half of a screen >:[ But that would take so much work and so difficult I would imagine.
It isin't that bad i expected worse
