    This game rocks. Almost exactly like Two towers but it is a solid game with awesome graphics and nice gameplay.

    My favourite game! This is an easy and really pleasant game , with a really lots of adventures and various tricks! The funny thing is that after you finish it you actually go all over the beggining :) Also bonus maps rock! Lots of gold , later xp and great items! This type of games is the best in the world.

    Mainly, I am posting this as a response to Bob H.'s review. In the options menu, you can adjust the difficulty settings. I believe there is Normal, Hard, and Grueling. I don't think the game is as hard as he makes it sound, unless he has it set on Grueling.

    Hey Bob...are you sure that you'e not reviewing the CONSOLE version of the game? There are no mid-level checkpoints in the GBA version, and maps that take more than 15 minutes to get through are fairly rare. The difficulty curve you describe also sounds much more in-line with the console game than the handheld version. Please don't do an this game a disservice by spreading Hey Bob...are you sure that you'e not reviewing the CONSOLE version of the game?

  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]
