The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age is a 2004 Role Playing Game (RPG) by EA for Xbox, GameCube, PlayStation 2, and Gameboy Advance. You have a core group of characters that you adventure with, leveling up according to experience gained from battles and quests. The game was released to mixed reviews.

Synopsis

In the game, the player takes the control of a Gondorian guard, Berethor. In search of Boromir, son of Denethor II, he will find companions and form a fellowship. In this game, Gandalf is, in fact, the tutor of Berethor.

Though the fellowship of Gandalf and that of Berethor will rarely meet, they will live rather similar events, as the fellowship of Gandalf. They will go to Rivendell, Lothlórien, Osgiliath, Minas Tirith and Moria, among others.

The Lord Of the Rings:The Third Age is, unlike the other games based of the world of Tolkien, a Role-Playing Turn-Based game. The characters can swap clothes, weapons, armors which they collect after fights of buy from Shops found of their journey.
