This game simply rocks, the action is fast and furious, and the graphics are some of the best seen on any system. The music is taken right from the movie, and there is a ton of replay value with a hidden character and level to unlock as well as tons of devastaing moves for each character. Anyone who is a fan of The Lord of the Rings needs to get this one.
Gripping with emotion, fast paced action and dark settings, this game captures the feel of the films expertly. The game makes the smart decision to not compete with the films' character development and focuses on the gameplay, in which it succeeds.
The game is indeed short but a good experience for fans of the franchise. The sound design it´s great and the best thing on this game. You have all the original actors playing their roles in this game. The gameplay its way repetitive and there's two or three combos that you can purchase that just break the game. Some enemies are straight unfair like the troll that throws you woods or the Uruk-Hai that doesn't wear armor but that one its easily beatable with a way specific combo.
The character design for the enemys it´s memorable. Props to the design of the Uruk-Hais with black armor, for being minions they look menacing and their attacks look like a real threat. The boss fights are way repetitive. The troll of Moria gets his chains stuck on the pillars, the Uruk-Hai from Amon Hen gets his sword stuck in a statue, you have to wait the rider of Rohan to attack him ect. The gameplay is way too weak for a beat em up/hack and slash. The game also gives you additional content like it was the DVD of the movie witch it´s a great detail. This game it´s still enjoyable but also fells like wasted potential. For example, they din´t gave us a boss fight against the Balrog of Moria in this game (Wich happens even in the Lego game)
While not the worst movie tie in game, I have played better, it can be the most frustrating game in the world at times, but I found myself coming back to see what each new level would bring, and what new things I would get to unlock, this game puts you in the biggest battles of the first and second movie, and you'll notice characters and locations from the movies, and during some cutscenes it will use clips from the movie which is cool, and popular enemies will come back as bosses, and there are a ton of interviews and artwork to unlock which any fan can appreciate, and you get some secret missions and a secret character if you level grind, while this game has a lot of good things any fan of the movies can enjoy it does have its flaws, the sword sound effects are bad, and it can be brutally difficult at times, but eventually gets easier after you level up your character, but that isn't as easy as it sounds because you can't go back and replay levels you've already beaten with a character, if you want to play through it again you have to use one of the other characters, but after you level up your character things get easier, and the last three battles are particularly epic, I made it past the last battle by the skin of my teeth, all in all if your a Lord of the Rings fan you will enjoy this but I really can't see anyone but the most hardcore of fans really putting all the effort you need to into this game.
This one is just bad. Not terrible, but bad. I can see why people enjoy this game, but personally it feels like a lesser version to experience the movie of the two towers. Not only is bad enough that they don't let you see the frodo and sam story, but on top of that the aragorn story feels rushed and kinda boriing.
