SPOILER WARNING lore-wise and to the gameplay
THe lore in the game is awesome, at least from my point of view. There are some session plays where you can play as Boromir when he tries to snatch the ring from Frodo, and his death scene. Lórien is simply beautiful. Oh, and you get to Moria _after the fellowship has already passed there_! So one of the bridges is broken (where Gandalf fell). Or I don't know, that is at least how I interpreted it. Lore-wise, I think the game is very nice!
