Rating Summary
This is an action-role-playing game set in the Hobbit/Lord of the Rings universe. Players explore the open-world environments of Middle-Earth, complete mission objectives, interact with characters, and battle fantastical creatures (e.g., orcs, trolls, goblins) in frenetic melee-style combat. Players use swords, arrows, and knives to kill enemy creatures; some attacks result in decapitation and/or dismemberment, leaving bloodstains and body parts on the ground. Cutscenes depict intense acts of violence: an orc decapitated in slow-motion with a close-up camera angle; a woman accidentally killed by a character with a blow to the head; soldiers impaled and slashed to death.
