I almost bought the new LOTR game Saturday but I decided to wait on account of Halo 2. I figure I'll wear out Halo and then probably get Knights of the Old Republic 2 and by the time I get through both of those I ought to be able to get LOTR cheap.

All of you who've bought it: How is it?

Wood Elf .... Druid.

That will be what I start with. After that Im thinking I may make a Pally but sure what race would be the best. Humans have the crappiest stats to begin with, so I may go with a froggie. Will have to wait and see. Also I gotta see what server my guild from EQ1 is gonna be on. Maybe we'll get lucky and pick the same one.

:D

Eric Draven like a month ago wrote: Halo. 2. Freakin. Rocks.

My friend got an illegal copy (in french), so we've been playing all day. It's sooooo rad. I mean, it's pretty much like Halo but with new features. Like you can hold two guns at once (with certain guns only) and in multiplayer, you can be Elite. That and the scenery is new. (Guess where you get to be)

Took the kinggrl's advice and bought it for $19.99 and it is indeed my kind of game. It is truly addictive.

This is the one where you play with the hero Sphinx and then his goober pal the Mummy right? If it is I think it looked like one I would like too...

It plays like teh PSOne MediEvil right? I loved those two as well...

Your talking about the right game. Didnt play the MediEvil game so can't compare for you. It reminds me a lot of Zelda games just not quite as grand. But you know you get to go through collect items by fighting baddies and solving puzzles. Graphics and controls are very much like Starfox Adventures for Gamecube. And did I mention its only $19.99 :mishchief:

He was glad to get it.

Currys (a UK electrical store) boasted a world exclusive today. They have Halo 2 for PS2 for only £40! But as it doesn't exist i'm pretty sure it's a typo. How a typo gets in to a full page ad in a national newspaper i'm not sure. :-?

So true, I can't believe how realistic is this time around. All i can say is visually stunning?

So no one here is playing rct3 and can help me change the firework colors?

Sounds like you're all way in front of me. I'm still in Los Santos trying to do Smoke's mission chasing the train,

"All you had to do was shoot better you fat wanker"
:balrog:

Still loving it though.

It's nothing spectacular, but it's pretty solid. The characters and the storyline are all the generic RPG type, but the real-time fighting system keeps things interesting.
I was trying to help a driver, a working man, so he wouldn't have to eat with his hands.

I really liked that one, untill I got stuck in a fight with some zombies and lost my patience. Maybe I should try to pass that part again, when I find the time.
I'm betting it was the bit on the 'lift' where the whole floor is rising. Took me many, many attempts, but finally prevailed by using the "super fast-forward" time thingy :roll:

Hardest bit of the game, final boss was much easier
No, it was the fight where there's this girl and I think you're fighting your own father. So now I understand there's another place where I'll lose my patience at when and if I get there. :wink:
Oh, OK, that was Option B :D

The thing to remember there is that you can't damage yr father until all the minions have been dispatched, and they keep coming for ages. The 'vault' attack doesn't work on all of them (nor on your father), but if you get close to the walls, you can jump off those to attack. Protect the girl too, if she dies, you die :teeth:
Fiiiiiiiinally managed to pass that part. :banana:
Bad dates
