Robert Jordan made the Wheel of Time not Terry Goodkind :confused: ..Since when have they had a Wheel of Time game anyways?..The Lord of the Rings games weren't that bad, other then that I can't really think of anything else at the moment.

The best Lotr's inspired game i've played on is something called 'Last days'. It's a free mod for the mount and blade game that's in development. Its such good fun! Plus it gets updated fairly often so you know there is always someone working to get it just that bit better!

Though im not really to aware of any other games derived from books, wasn't there a discworld one? And the Dune games were meant to be good though i've not played on them.

my bad, yep Robert Jordan wrote the Wheel of Time. thanks for pointing that out to me cheese

and yep, there definitely is a game based on WoT -- it was really sucky though.

I haven't played any games based on Dune or Ringworld though.

No Problem :) ..What console was the WoT on? Or was it on computer?

I used to own the WOT game. It was quite innovative at the time and based on the Unreal Engine. I'd say it was a success, because it could easily have been turned into a crap 1st person shooter.

Best: Betrayal at Krondor, Return to Krondor (Raymond E. Fiest)

I thought the Wheel of Time game was a 1st person shooter :confused: .

I never played any Dune games either but one of them was one of the first RTS and was said to be crazy good, I wouldn't mind trying a ROM of it.

Are you talking about Dune 1 or 2 there kater? Dune 2 was a full RTS, but the first only utilised it in parts.

Very much Dune 2, which was a great game when I first played it even if it looks a touch dated now.
