The Lord of the Rings: Two Towers Review
11 March 2010
Conclusion: Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers has a lot to offer to action game enthusiasts. There are big monsters, countless enemies to place the hurt on and an epic adventure to go along with it. While the game isn’t without some fairly important flaws, the overall quality of the gameplay is sufficient enough to make up for it.
Excerpt: The Lord of the Rings trilogy of movies have been insanely successful because their dark, mystic, exotic collection of otherworldly tree creatures, Orcs, Goblins, Elves, and Men alike — seized us from our mundane everyday and led us to their world of alien grandeur that was not so much unlike our own world at its fragile, battle-weary heart.
Conclusion: be of any use – enemies remain unseen until they’ve landed a few blows. This bogs the play into frustration at crucial junctures. There’s also a problem with the camera cuts. For large sections the action moves along like the classic Golden Axe then shifts to another perspective, which is fine – it really acts to draw you in – but if you’re on one of these switch lines while taking on a group of orcs, it’s a wonder it you don’t succumb to epileptic seizures.
Excerpt: "One ring to rule them all…" Peter Jackson is bringing these words to life in the unimaginably impressive Lord of the Rings trilogy of movies. That same quality of showmanship is marvelously integrated into a gaming experience as The Two Towers, an Electronic Arts game for the Xbox, GameCube, and PlayStation 2. (Xbox version reviewed here) Despite the name, this game is a digital rendition of the first two films.
Conclusion: And finally, although you occasionally get CPU controlled help from one of the fellowship, a 2-player co-operative mode would also have been a logical option in a story in which co-operation, friendship and loyalty play such a central part. So what could have been a classic game-of-the-movie ended up just being a rather good one.
Pros: Excellent in-game graphics with massive battles and seamless transitions to and from movie footage., Loads of DVD style extras.
Cons: It's totally linear and rather repetitive., Theres no exploration to break the action up.
Conclusion: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers is an instantly accessible hack-n-slash game that takes advantage of a great movie license to create a fun and engaging experience for all. There is not a great deal here that will repel unless you are not a fan of the genre all together. The game manages to counter the repetitive gameplay of the genre with a relatively short game (yes, in this case I am putting this in the plus column) that is packed with a good variety of enemy...
Pros: + furious battles of unprecedented scale, + very accessible controls, + excellent translation of the events of the movies, +, +, Reviewed by Karter Yu
Cons: - several short and unsatisfying levels that require under ten minutes to complete, - plenty of spoilers for those that have yet to see the movies, - some superior graphics found in the Playstation 2 incarnation, - no multiplayer features at all, -
