    There's not enough variety to keep you playing through everything EA's set up for you. You'll be addicted to the game for a short while when you go through with your first character, but after that, the novelty of building up medieval superheroes starts to wear extremely thin.

    The core gameplay is essentially the same as last year's "Two Towers," though the graphics have been given a minor facelift and the stages are a bit more varied. [Dec 2003, p.236]

    Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King's GBA port is actually almost as good as the console version, the graphics are ok for a GBA game,Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King's GBA port is actually almost as good as the console version, the graphics are ok for a GBA game, the sound however is a mixture of repetitive music and sound effects, the game is very challenging but that's mostly because of a flawed leveling up system, you can play as several characters from the movie, and all but a few have there own unique stories, while this game does have it's flaws it is still a ok game and i would recommend it for fans of the series Full Review »

    Boring. Absolutely boring, this is the only game where I came close to dosing off while playing. Muddy graphics. Repetitive gameplay which is Boring. Absolutely boring, this is the only game where I came close to dosing off while playing. Muddy graphics. Repetitive gameplay which is BORING. Music is decent. The Characters die way to fast. If you want something like the ps2 or xbox versions of ROTK stay away from here. Absolutely horrible. Full Review »
