    Great graphics but not much else going for it. I absolutely hated the lack of camera control. You will frequently engage enemies that aren't even on the screen. It's also very short. I'm a big fan of the trilogy but this game was a huge let down. Don't waste your money buying it. If you are really interested in it, rent it and beat it before you have late fees due.

    Everything in Two Towers - from the rich, lush environments to the lovingly rendered boss monsters - comes impressively close to matching its cinematic counterpart. [Feb/Mar 2003, p.76]

    The only real knock against Two Towers is its limited replayability. [Feb 2003, p.68]

    A tremendous game. [Feb 2003, p.105]
