This game was awesome!! There was one level in particular that had what seemed to be a never ending flow of orcs in front of a castle and when u got on top of the castle u could dump flaming tar or something onto them down below. I would play this lvl over and over just clearing all enemies off the map. Basically just mashing square endlessly! So much fun

Edit: I feel like I fed everyone who commented member berries. Crackin me up

IIRC it was Aragorn/Legolas/Gimli arriving at Pelennor fields. You had to open the gates/kill the trebuchets.

You could actually kill all the orcs too. You just had to not die and have a lot of patience haha

218 points · 1 year ago

I distinctly remember completely clearing out all of the orcs on that map at least three times, once with my brother and the other two solo.

There was a level before Minas Tirith where you could clear everyone as well. Very satisfying.

I think he's referring to The Southern Gate, the level before Pelennor Fields. source: I also played this level over and over.

That's pretty impressive, considering you'd have to dodge 90 kg stones being thrown from 300 meters away.

I would just use Legolas with all his upgrades and pump out arrows. He had unlimited arrows so I just spammed arrows. They did so much damage. He was OP.

112 points · 1 year ago

Purple arrows OP af. Shooting 3 at a time.

Two at a time I think. But they'd fly through orcs while setting them on fire! So OP for the Black Gate level since they all ran up in line

Me and my buddy would always rush for legolas so we could do that and get the higher score. Perfect mode +arrow spam = massive points.

Gandalf could almost compete with his laser beams but not quite.

Don't forget Gandalf's indestructible death ball! I think it was L1 L2 R1 R2 at the same time and you could literally run through a ton of orcs and kill them with ease lol

Orc bane.

I liked the move, with Aragorn at least, where you shoulder into a guy and as he's falling down you pull out your dagger and stab the living fuck out of him.

Gimli's orc bane was great as well, sweep the legs then it's just like chopping wood.

Is that where he twirls the axe around a bunch? That one's great as well

Pelennor Southern Gate. Best level of the game.

35 points · 1 year ago

Was it the level where it starts off showing Gandalfs hand resting on the castle?? I remember seeing that shit 100 times.

52 points · 1 year ago

That was Minas Tirith - Top Of The Wall. OP's talking about The Southern Gate later on.

Best thing with Top Of The Wall was playing as Pippin for the continuity lulz after Gandalf got so leveled up it became too easy.

36 points · 1 year ago

Top of the wall was the most trouble I had on any level then because I remember seeing that cutscene over and over after dying. You remember the game pretty well, was The Southern Gate harder than Minas Tirith?

Fuck no. Southern gate was pretty easy, and extremely fun. Minas Tirith top of the wall was one of the most difficult levels in the game. I can remember just barely shooting down one siege tower just to have another appear on the other side of the map. I hated that level with the fiery passion of 47281649.8 suns.

16 points · 1 year ago

Remember running down through the streets of Minas Tirith to the courtyard after beating that level to defend the gate? That level was also annoying but once you figured out that the fire javelins one-shot the trolls it was so much fun.

The courtyard was one of my favorites. When you had to fight the three trolls at once. So intense

The absolute best thing about The Hobbit game was its original soundtrack which some hero has uploaded to YouTube.

It's 14 years old and I still go back to listen to it every 6 months or so. It wouldn't sound out of place being the soundtrack for an epic fantasy movie... which is funny considering how quaint and caricaturish the game was.

Just to clarify for people with lower end pcs it can be a nightmare. I downloaded it with Battlefront 2 on my old laptop and it was so laggy it was impossible to play.

I wish I could remember the specs - but Dora 2 used to have 50+ fps and CS GO with 40+ fps on the lowest possible graphics - so you can use that for a benchmark.

It was fine for what it was. But there could've been so much more, like, I don't know, playing as Sauron and destroying the Shire oh wait

honestly, I couldn't stand the block/parry mechanism. The scouts and warriors could pretty much endlessly block and there was no way to break through it without using the fire/power attack. And being an archer was just super boring as was the mage class.

Hopefully the ending of the sequel is not as lackluster.

Yeah shadow of mordor really lost its stride at the end. It was kind of fun being super overpowered, but it also trivialized every encounter. And it really could have used an actual boss fight at the end, but just hiding and sneak attacking some clones.

Tell me about it! They REALLY shit the bed on the ending. You train up an army of warchiefs (some of them who were your personal nemesis turned ally, vegeta mode) and what do you get at the end if the game? Like 4 of them and some QTEs.
