Summary: When I bought this game I knew straight away it was going to be much more challenging than Harry Potter etc. Although I say it's hard don't be put off. The graphics are amazings. You can choose from 5 characters to play with: Aragorn, Legolas (his bow's soooo cool. Best weapon!), Gandalf, Frodo and Eeowyn! You are put up uin levels on how well you're doing. Fight orcs, goblins, uruk-hai and loads more. A real fighting game.
Impressive graphics, smooth gameplay, good characters

Summary: First impressions? very slick, great movie clip intro, very nice graphics, good sound, straight into the action. Lots of orcs to kill, atmospheric scenery & sound, visually very faithful to the films. Then some more orcs to kill, then yet more, then a few more for good measure. Don't expect a deep plot here, this is a good old fashioned dungeon bash. If it moves, hack it, zap it, shoot it, and then hack it some more.
Excerpt: The Lord of the Ring name has fast become a quick cash-in for many companies just relying on the name to generate sales despite producing dire products, most notably at the end of last year Universal Interactive had the rights for producing a Fellowship of the Ring game for all major formats, unfortunately they used the potentially excellent license to create an extremely poor game which was clearly rushed on to the market to ensure the game wouldn’t miss the Christmas...
Pros: An excellent licence, long lasting, simple gameplay
Excerpt: Lord of the ring, two towers is a role playing game based on the 1st and 2nd lord of the ring movies. At the start of the game you can choose to be any of the nine characters and sometimes within different levels controlling up to nine characters at once. each of the characters has a different fighting style and uses different weapons, so the game offers more than just a play once and discard package .
Pros: Super addictive fun
Cons: A few bugs in the game but not enough to hinder game play
Summary: OK, to start with, the graphics.. they're awful! The little cut scene intro is amazing, ripped straight from the film, the rest of the graphics.. well not so hot. The backgrounds are nice, the character sprites, less so i'm afraid. But come on, they're playable and after a time, you forget they're even there as you become so immersed in the game world. Following along the lines of the films its a great step up from the "Fellowship of the Rings" the first GBA LOTR game.
