LOTR is an epic journey game. Gotta love the theme to really appreciate it. And if you've never experienced LOTR, and you love the theme, it's a no brainer. now if you play lots of multiplayer games with friends and such, LOTR is not for you, this is a single player game. Think of it as the legend of Zelda of pinball. I would do the trade/upgrade and FT is the pin that got me hooked on pinball (pun intended). That said, how attached to RZ are you?
