Better than the Last Game

John, Amazon

  • Summary: Return of the King was better than the two towers (not constantly getting knocked down) with more characters to play and new levels from the movie to play and co op mode. But how the lord of the rings games lacked in is you only get to play on like 8 short missions and have to lvl up all the new characters on the same levels over and over again, everything exactly the same.

Satisfaction Guaranteed

  • Summary: Unlike some of the other reviewers that feel they have to write a whole essay on the game, I'm going to make it short and sweet. This game, like Two Towers, is great because you have multiple characters to play with and also, different paths. The graphics are tight as are the sound. The controls are also easy and the combos are neat. I like the fact that not only can you purchase upgrades for your character but the whole team as well.

  • Summary: This game was amazing!. You Play as Aragorn,Legolas,Gimli,gandalf,Sam,Frodo.When you beat the game you unlock two secrets levels three interviews and 3 characters (1 of them is Pippin!The other two you can get yourself!) The levels are much larger than its predesesor the two towers. The game is more challenging but with the same beat em' up style play! Graphics are much improved from TTT.

Awesome Game!!!

  • Summary: I would definitely rate this game higher that The Two Towers. The graphics are superb. Gameplay, excellent. Storyline, 10 out of 10. And, my personal favorite, sound effects. Not only the music, but the crunching sound of orcs under your blade, and the roar of Saruman's concotion exploding with a fire-arrow are especially wonderful. I'd have to say that ROTK is much more interactive then TTT. Nonetheless, it is a hack 'n slash game.

Great Game

  • Summary: this is a really good game, it has awesome gameplay and the levels are hard and but not to hard. the graphics are really good too. The only reason I dont give this game 5 stars is because most of the levels you play happen in th LOTR the two towers, hardley any of it is based on LOTR the return of the king I know that not everyone has alot of money to spend on games but if youre thinking of buying a game this one is really good.

One of my favorites

James Duckett, Amazon

  • Summary: I fell in love with this game the first time I played it. The graphics and the sounds are incredible. The gameplay if fun. It keeps you interested especially since they have three different paths to follow, as well as several different players you can do it with. I play it with my son so having it play in co-op mode is a HUGE benefit and source of enjoyment. My only gripe is that if you are playing by yourself, it is sometimes hard to build up a player.

EA saved the best for last

Christian Wheeler "Husband/Father/Gamer/Proud..., Amazon
4 December 2003
  • Summary: The first two Lord of the Rings titles belonged to that rare group of worthy film-based games. How many movie tie-in games have been less-than-stellar garbage capitalizing on a film's popularity? With "The Return of the King," EA concludes their trilogy with one of the best games of the year. A warning to those who have not read the books and do not know how the trilogy ends: As expected, the game contains many spoilers.

Excellent game, but difficult

Jim Morrison, Amazon
18 November 2003
  • Summary: I just thought I'd post this for all the parents out there thinking of this for christmas.... First off this is one of the best games out right now. It's incredible, and the best movie based game I've ever played. Thank you Peter Jackson and EA! Great job! However, be warned that while this game is incredible in gameplay, graphics, story, and sound, it's also very difficult...even on "easy".
