Very playable. Different from mos LOTR scenarios, this one was purely defend. Not kill an attacking elephant. Although there were some parts where you get stuck, and some minor flaws, very good. The "quests" were a great part of it.
A bit hard, but very fun. It took me a few tries to beat it. I liked the variety of creatures you used at the attack part, very good.
Very original for a LOTR scenario, and unlike the others, this one was different. You play as Gandalf, not as some dumb assortment.

Excellent eyecandy. The light columns were great, about 95% original. The volcano was good, and Minas Tereth was very well done.
I'm not criticizing the fact that the story wasn't like the movie or books at all, no biggie though. Some parts were self-explanetory, but some werent and took me a while to figure out.
