    A top-quality production on every level, and is arguably the best hack-and-slash game since the original "Golden Axe."
  2. A solid pick - especially for players who enjoy nonstop action - that lives up to the expectations set by the movie on which it's based.

    Two Towers isn’t perfect, and it’s pretty far from groundbreaking, but it’s undeniably awesome to delve into such an authentic representation of this universe and whup some orc backside.
  4. A basic hack-'n'-slash game, albeit a really good one. [Jan 2003, p.174]
  5. With so much chasing and fighting in the movie, the scrolling slasher genre seems ideal. However, the result is a simplistic and repetitive game. [PSM2]
  6. Despite the logic issues, the lack of a two-player mode, and the utterly disappointing "secret" level and character, I still consider the game to be a success.
  7. It isn't so attractive after you sit down to play it. Still, the glitz and intense combat can make you forget that there is no substance here for at least a few hours.

The music is taken right from theThis game simply rocks the action is fast and furious, and the graphics are some of the best on any system. The music is taken right from the film and there is a ton of replay value to the game with a hidden character and a hidden level. Anyone who is a true fan of the Lord of the Rings needs to get this one. Expand
