Since The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game is a digital adaptation of the physical board game, it was a natural choice to make the video game in a similar fashion. But physical games and video games are two different types of experiences, and if PvE works great in the physical world, it, unfortunately, doesn't work in the same way here, especially in a world oversaturated with free-to-play CCGs.
With all the influence coming from The Lord of the Rings: Living Card Game and the fact that the cards are essentially permanent, you would be as well just buying a deck and playing at your friendly local game store. The only real advantage to the video game version is the story and the ability to change card art by unlocking it with points - which is a nice change from paying for it though the groundwork is there for microtransactions to seep in eventually.
The Lord of the Rings: Adventure Card Game will surely appeal to those wanting to beat Sauron and his minions in solo or co-op, but with the lack of a multiplayer mode, it's hard to see the game compete with the giants of the genre in the long-term. However, the narrative is fun to follow, the game plays well and there are plenty of fun mechanics at play, it just doesn't go all the way.
