Mike really hit the nail on the head when it comes to most of the game's problems. In fact, if anything, he didn't go far enough when it came to the shortcomings with the game's combat system. This game features one of the most ill-conceived targeting systems I've ever encountered.
The most glaring shortcoming in the game is easily the battle system. Players will control Frodo, Gandalf, and Aragorn at different parts of the story. However, each of them fights exactly the same way and highlights all of the problems with the combat interface.
According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Language, Violence
