Too hard, not enough save points
21 December 2006
Summary: I enjoyed the gameplay, graphics etc. of this game. However it is unreasonably difficult. That plus the fact there are no save points within the levels makes it a thumbs down for me. I enjoy my PS2 but am not interested in making playing this (or any) game into a full time job.
Summary: EA should take the Cinematic cameras in Return of the King, and shove them up their ???. They only succeed in hindering game play. This is purely a 'reflex' fighting game, with strategy thrown out the window. Nothing more. Forget the so-called 'Combos' and special moves...
Summary: There are many good "movie-moments" that die-hard fans will enjoy but this game is far from perfect. Even the most talented gamers will find themelves staring at their TV screens as it displays "you've failed the mission" after failing a mission for the 5th time wondering why they should even bother...
Summary: This game is so boring, don't bother buying it, just rent it you'll probally finish it in about 3hours even on hard mode. Repetetive hack and slash, all the characters are besically exactly the same and the only challenging bit is seeing how long your fingers can keep hit the x button for.
