Arrival of the king

Summary:


The end of an epic...?
The Lord Of The Rings franchise, whether you're talking about the books or the movie trilogy directed by Peter Jackson, defines epic. The story is big, the characters are full of depth, the battles are big and the stakes are high. I have to say, though, the games don't really compare and it's easy to push them aside, labelling them cash ins and moving onto a game that is worth something, but don't be too quick to underestimate the Lord Of The Rings games, because they are still good games. Not fantastic, but they always get the job done in terms of being a good game, a...

Rob's Review

The good:

Play as your favourite characters from the Lord of the Rings films

Great graphics

Cool "heat of the battle" moments

You can really kick ass at times!

Exciting and intense


The bad:

Get's repetitive

Won't last long

not enough levels

Last level is a let down

some levels are boring like the ones involving the hobbits

Not much replay factor at all once you complete it

Summary:

Now this is one great game with a few setbacks which will cause it too gather dust after a few weeks or a month.

When you first play it, it's amazing, the graphics are brilliant and you can pull of some really cool combos with the characters from the LOTR movies. Other characters such as Gandalf can be unlocked as you get further into the game. The game is so addictive and exciting. Until you beat it. There is barely any replay factor in this game, and the last level is a disappointment.
It's still a very good game though but I suggest you rent it because you can beat it in a week or less and...

LOTR

The good:

Its full of adventure and exitement. There is a great Variety of characters. There are wonderful moves and abilitis. The indurence matches are really really fun to do at the end.

The bad:

Not enought levels, it gets really boring after a while. Some level ups do more harm than good. The end cheats are all that fun to use. The last level isnt very good.

Summary:

Its an extreamly adicting game untill you get to the absolute end of it. The exitment of adveture diminishes and you feel more like cracking the disk. There are a few challenging levels especialy the endurence ones at the end. Its realy fun to do on more difficult settings. The first few weeks I had it I loved it. Then after i had finished it I didn't pick it up for a few weeks. if you are looking for a long lasting and challenging game this wouldnt be one for you. But if you love medieval games then i would definetly suggest buying this one

The Lord Of The Rings The Return Of The King

The good:

A Whole Range Of Characters A Very Good Storyline And Lots Of Enemies Like Orcs,Uruk Hai, Trolls And Gollum.THe Graphics Are Very Good.

The bad:

You Can't Play Helms Deep Twice You Have To Complete The Crack Of Doom TO Play It Again.If YOu Are Playing The Game For The First Time You Can Only Play As Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, Gandalf And Sam.

Summary:

An All Rounder If You Have A Console Get It. It Is Very Good Good I Have Completed It Not With Ease.The Good Thing Is That You Get To Buy New Upgrades For Exprience Points. You Can Get Expience Points By Killing A Lot Of Orcs And Using A Lot Of Combos My Favourite Is Helms Hammer Which You Get At Level 10 It Is Triangle x3 It Crushes Any Enemie Which Is Close By.This Game Is For Xbox, Gamecube, Gameboy Adv And PS2.

Two Thumbs Up!

The good:

I love that game, and I play it almost everyday! The graphics blow my mind away, and everyone who's ever seen me play it. They all said, "HOly Cow! Is that the game or the movie?" I was just as shocked as they were. On Helms Deep (the first level) I didnt know whether it was the movie still playing or if I should start to play it was so good. I beat it on my first try though!

The bad:

There ARE NO BADS! Didn't you read The Good above?
Actually... There is one bad... Never mind, I can't think of one! lol

Summary:

Since I've already beaten the game, I'm now getting every character to level 20, and when I do that, I'll get all of their points to a maximum. It's a really cool game, and I love it. A game I can play without getting bored! (and that's pretty hard to come by, since I get bored playing almost any game for too long).

Lord of the rings: Return of the king

The good:

Different paths for different characters.
Nine playable characters.
More "spread-out" levels instead of in a small area.
Co-op mode is a great improvement.
Intervies with the actors from the film.

The bad:

It could have stuck a bit closer to the film's storyline.
The movie clips are mainly from the first 2 films not the third film (e.g when the black gate opens)

Summary:

This game is better than the Two towers. It is more fun to play because of co-op mode and the paths of the wizard, king and hobbits.

Three unlockable characters at the end of the game (two hobbits and a man - I'm telling you who exactly!), to go with the six characters: Gandalf, Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, Sam & Frodo.

All in all I reccomend you buy this game. If you are choosing only game out of all of them, I reccomend this one. EA games did very good in creating this masterpiece!
