I am thinking about buying this game used. I would appreciate you opinions of the game so that I can make a more informed decision. The only cooperative game I have really played is Shadows over Camelot -which was a lot of fun- and Pandemic -which I own-. Thank you.

Men do not quit playing because they grow old; they grow old because they quit playing.

This is not a Co-Op, it's more a wargame.
Maybe you were talking about this one: Lord of the Rings ?

Rainer Knizia's Lord of the Rings coop game is an excellent one and was my favorite Tolkien-themed game before War of the Ring. Despite having rather abstract mechanics, it captures the feeling of the quest to destroy the ring pretty well. I certainly recommend it if you like coop games.

I've also really enjoyed The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, if you aren't turned off by LCGs. It can play 1 to 4 players cooperative. Very cool scenarios, great art, and interesting deck building.

The co-op by Knizia was a total snoozer for us. Love co-ops and love Lord of the Rings and even like a lot of Knizia games and bought all of the expasnions for this co-op - hated it. There is no strategy

WoR the Board game has a coop mode in it but its wonky. I would not recommend coop. The game shines 2 player 1v1.

I don't think you understood the question. The question was given in regards to this game: http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/823/lord-of-the-rings
