Gameplay similar to FF...

Strange...why does it sound to me like a KotOR rip-off...I mean they're looking for their own RPG or something.

It looked interesting until I read "completely turn-based".

Blech. No thanks. I prefer real-time gameplay, and direct character control if I can get it.

No. It just feels like the LotR franchise HAD to make an RPG. Feels like they're trying to fight the Star Wars franchise and KotOR with their own RPG.
It's only a personnal opinion nothing else.

Fight the SW rpg? Please, like that's the only other RPG out there?
They're just trying to make a few extra $$$ and milk LOTR for all it's worth

Of course it's not the only RPG out there. It's the only RPG of the SW franchise. I mean, it's just weird that the two most succesful movie franchises both have now a turn based RPG.

It's only a little impression I got when I saw it.

TTA does remind me of Kotor... but we'll see how it turns out.

lol you can tell it's a star wars forum when they blame a LOTR franchise for ripping off a Star Wars RPG.
Lets go back to the dawn of time for a moment shall we, The first great RPG game was Dungeons and Dragons...millions and millions of people have played D&D in some form or another and has spawned so many different RPGs that I couldn't begin to count them...whether it is its own paper and pen RPG or a video game like Neverwinter Nights which uses its rules; D&D is the end all and be all of RPGs. D&D was, of course, inspired by the world of middle earth. So I'd say it's more suprising that they hadn't come out with a big RPG based on the movie when the FIRST movie came out. It just seemed like a "duh" for LOTR. So this move is no suprise nor does it rip off KOTOR...if anything from their description it seems more like a FFX style.

Yeah. I just figured that trying to rationalizing this wouldn't really matter here. So I didn't bother to even try.

Hmm.. some of the screenies have graphics that look they are from the RotK game.

Well, it just seems to be another way that they are trying to get money.
