    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 Expand

  1. 7 / 7 / 7 / 6 - 27 [Vol 786]
  2. While not a dramatic change from its predecessor, Return of the King is a solid action game.
  3. Although item use is complex and battlefield navigation can be a chore, gameplay is solid and production values are high. [Jan 2004, p.161]
