Summary: This has the same problem as the second game, once you finish it there's really nothing else to do. But somehow this one isn't as enjoyable as the second game. Really only get this if love Lord of the Rings.
Excerpt: "...this game, I couldn’t believe the improvement compared to the Two Towers. Some nice set pieces to play and the scenes from the film only added to the experience. However, after a couple of hours I began to change my mind. It’s wasn’t a bad game by far but it didn’t really turn out to be all that much of an improvement after all. Plot: The plot follows the third film with scenes and voiceovers from the film. The way the film scene would switch ...
Pros: Great graphics and cutscenes well implemented

The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King (PS2): A good game
3 April 2010
Summary: Lord Of The Rings Return of the King video game could be a lot worse. It's only the second game based on the trilogy, the first being The Two Towers. The Fellowship of The Ring was actually based on the books and there has been no PS2 game from EA based on the first movie. The game is a third person action game in which you follow a variety of different characters from the movies. You can play as Gandalf, any of the hobbits or Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli.
Summary: Great and awesome game, that is very exciting and thrilling when I first play it. However after a while the game starts following a very similar pattern and then I reach a level wherein get stuck on and it's no longer fun, quickly becoming very frustrating instead. Throughout my play of Return of the King I found the above statements to be an extremely accurate description, being thrilling at first, then becoming annoying when I get stuck or highly repeated after...
Pros: brilliant effects
Cons: \uFEFFgame can get very frustrating at times
Excerpt: "With all the Lord of the Rings hype, you would expect the billion making franchise to provide an absolutely outstanding game. However this is not the case. While this game is good its not great and below is the explanation for my rating. *Sound* 5/5 The sound in this game is fantastic, utilising the music created by Howard Shore for the movies very well.

Summary: Have you played Two Towers.... well its that, but with the characters from Return of the King... oh you want more, its a hack an slash graphical adventure, lots of lil extras but not that much scope. After you complete it you will only play it again to show it off.
Summary: Its got better graphics, more characters and more levels, but the gameplay is no-where near as good as The Two Towers. In the Return Of The King there are 3 paths to follow with different characters, all of which join up at the end. There are nine playable characters (you have to complete the game to unlock them all) and between them there are 3 special abilities.
