The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King
16 May 2005
Excerpt: ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Those are the only two words that can describe the audio/video experience present in EA's The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King . Not only does everything about the game look amazing, but you'll be blown away by the combination of special effects and the sheer amount of action happening on screen as you play.
Excerpt: With few exceptions, games based on movies flat out stink. Starting with the famed Atari 2600 stinker E.T, and continuing to the buggy Enter The Matrix, it seems that developers just can't turn a good movie into a good game. EA has worked hard to distance themselves from this problem and while the previous Lord of the Rings game was good, it didn't quite live up to both of the movies it represented.
Summary: Fans of the movies (and that should be almost everyone reading this) could do a lot worse then pick up this title. Electronic Arts are putting a lot of effort into making this brand pay off, and the results are terrific.
