Now you play all the levels and instead of saving them on your old file save them to your new one. It's just not terribly interesting--unless you're playing the fight as the balrog, because as we all know, huge fire-demons are awesome. After leaving by the other door, go left and you will see a door. The special powers at least generally look great, with lots of shining swords held aloft and dramatic creaking of bowstrings, but there's only so much variation in them, and you're going to be seeing some of them hundreds and hundreds of times as you patiently raise your points in increments of one. The game travels through many areas throughout Tolkien's Middle Earth, including The Pelennor Fields and Moria. For example, you are told that the dwarf Hadhod is bitter and coldhearted because he lost his son to the caverns of Moria when the evil came. Instead of featuring the original cast of characters and following their journey as it was laid out in the films and novels, The Third Age introduces a new cross-cultural group of travelers as they put their own stamp on the history of Middle-earth.
Great-looking armor sets are a beautiful thing. You will gain levels really fast until you get to like level 65 to 80 and then it will take awhile to gain a level. Leave and head back to the other door. It doesn't even cost anything. He will even tell you facts about your companions and their states of mind, and about Berethor and his past. Each of the many, many pieces of armor and weapons that you'll find along your journey is distinct and uniquely designed. If you can, it's best to use party items while roaming, and not using them during a battle.
The only slightly jarring note in the sound package is that some of the other characters you meet will speak in what is obviously recycled movie dialogue that has been repurposed for a slightly different scene, and it sounds out of place. Insofar as music goes, if you appreciated the grand scores of The Lord of the Rings films, then you'll continue to appreciate them here; the music for the game is straight from the movies. These compatriots fall well within the archetypical spread of a Middle-earth adventure party: there's a wise and mysterious elf, a dwarf of proud character who is suspicious of the aforementioned elf, and a scruffy Dunedain ranger with his trusty bow, among others. They're usually very quick to go through. This is a traditional turn-based system through and through, with your characters on one side of the room, your foes on the other, and each waiting patiently to act depending on their initiative and speed.
But Hadhod himself never mentions this, never alludes to any kind of loss, doesn't seem particularly bitter for an already gruff-sounding fellow , and has very little to say during the game other than the odd phrase when danger approaches. More interaction between the characters would have been welcome, as there are virtually no town visits to speak of, and much of the time you're simply moving from battle to battle. The stirring orchestral and choral themes for the various characters and locales really serve to root you firmly in the Middle-earth experience. If you have more than three characters in your group, you can easily swap characters in and out of battle by pressing the left trigger on your controller when someone's turn comes up. As you approach that location, the palantir will get brighter and more distinct; you can use it as a warning that you need to rest if your characters aren't ready for a fight.
This is true of much of the game--you are explicitly told what has happened and what will happen instead of actually seeing it happen, and it serves to somewhat distance the player from the whole experience. All these items help the team throughout the first chapter. The system works well on the whole, though investing in abilities gets to be time consuming at higher levels. Since each piece of armor and each weapon is distinct with its own unique appearances and stats, and since your equipped items change the appearance of your various characters, finding new equipment is always exciting. The voice acting is also excellent; Ian McKellan brings the same richness and nobility to the voice of Gandalf that he brought to the feature films, and the rest of the cast is also of very good quality. . After that keep using thief craft with Morwen until you get drain experience and get like 936 or something like that from orcs and people.
While this sounds very interesting, evil mode is actually just a selection of battles from that chapter, generally around five or less, that you'll fight from the side of the Mordor forces. You can field three characters at a time against foes that The Lord of the Rings fans will readily recognize: orcs and goblins, uruk'hai and the wolfish wargs, giant trolls and wild men. As multiplayer in a turn-based game, it's just not a whole lot of fun. You'll be plunged right into the next battle upon a victory, and you're not done until you've cleared all the fights, and when this happens, you get a handful of items. You won't be gathering currency in The Third Age, and there are no shops; every piece of armor and every weapon you acquire will either be won through battle or discovered along your way.
Go in there and you get lots of items which are helpful. The Lord of the Rings, The Third Age molds Middle-earth into a traditional turn-based frame, and while the results aren't all that great, the game carries some pretty good features and should appeal to fans of the source material. As the game opens, you're introduced to Berethor, warrior of the land of Gondor. There are two different onscreen indications that will let you know if a battle is imminent. He's riding in search of the Gondorian heir, Boromir, who has recently joined with the rest of the Fellowship of the Ring. Don't worry, there isn't a group of Orcs behind it. While there are some rough edges, the result is mostly a nice little role-playing jaunt into the world of Tolkien.

Frequently quests are mandatory, but not always; completing 100 percent of the quests in a given zone is usually simply a matter of opening every chest you see, as well as making sure you explore whatever paths are open to you.

If you battle a wring wrath. Scenes consist of cuts of live-action footage from The Lord of the Rings films, narrated by Ian McKellan, who reprises his role as the wizard Gandalf.
First you complete the game in any mode. And when you level your characters up, you'll be able to allot points to different base stats, like strength, speed, dexterity, spirit, and so on, so you can customize on a few different levels. Visually, the level of detail and care that went into the various characters--and even the enemies--is great. Even with all the skill-raising and orc-hewing, the game takes about 25 hours to finish if you rush, and 30 or longer if you want to take your sweet time and gather up skills. Otherwise, it's pretty easy to get 100-percent quest completion on all the chapters, and there aren't any extra features unlocked when you beat the game. The bulk of the powers are fairly short, but there's no way to skip the special-effects show manually.
