The Forest of Fear is an Eamon game (number 109 in the Eamon Adventurer's Guild's list). The player must free Mirkwood from the evil power in Dol Guldur. This is the second in The Lord of the Rings series.

Personal evaluation: Loads of strange things, such as Treebeard walking around in Mirkwood, makes this a game I would rather forget.

Screen shot

Redwoods and storm troopers in Mirkwood. All too typical for this game.
