I feel bad for not having any idea what the dead marshes are. It's been too long since I've seen LOTR. Those "Hobbit" films just aren't going to be that popular. Anyway, it was great fun to play this! I was fascinated at how fun I found it to be! It didn't seem to have good animation, but it makes up for that in terms of playability. I think the main reason it works so well is because of how simple it is.
You mostly just had to stay in the same place long enough to time it perfectly. It's different for a LOTR game. It just goes to show you don't need to be too elaborate with a game like this. There doesn't need to be that much going on is what I mean. You even have some nice levels of perspective.
