Conclusion: Hats-off to the level design and character teams for asthetics. The game 'looks' great. And to the producers--It's definately high-action and well balanced. (accept for a few bottle-necked areas) Unfortunately over-all I would give this game a 3 (on a scale of 1-10). why?
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King Reader Review - 7.7

Conclusion: Well when you first play this your like ya im playing a movie here the cutscences got good timing. Well its funny to wield a sword and kill so many orcs that outnumber you like at least 30/2. Pushing lava on orcs is funny. Shooting arrows is fun. Defending people is not.
Excerpt: Sometimes games based upon films are rushed out so quickly in an attempt to cash in and strike while the iron is hot that the end product is a major disappointment and fails to live up to the hype. Fortunately this is not the case with this game.
Excerpt: The game play on this game is nice... Theres no denying that. Movment is good, the graphics are reasonable and well it's an "ok" game. One problem with the game is that the plot is VERY linear. By that I mean you have set quest and set levels and you cant stray form them at all.
Summary: This is probably the best game in my collection. I first saw it at a friends house on PC, then bought it fo my PS2. My PS2 broke (not due to the game) so i bought an Xbox. After owning an Xbox for about 10 minutes i decided i had to get this game again, so i did.
