Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

There was a time when The Lord of the Rings was just a book; now it's a billion-pound industry churning out films, merchandise and games. The Lord of the Rings: the Two Towers is EA's foray into the realm of Middle Earth, and they've chosen good old-fashioned hack-'n'-slashery rather than offering up the RPG that most gamers might have expected.

You choose one of three characters of the fellowship of the Ring--Aragorn, Legolas or Gimli--and guide them through 16 missions of mêlée combat, where you use your superior fighting skills (and combinations of buttons on your controller) to beat back the hordes of Sauron.

How you fight is very important: the rating system resembles that of Devil May Cry, and the more daring moves and perfectly executed combos you pull off, the more points you get at the end of the level. The more points you get, the more you can upgrade your attacks, weapons and defensive tactics.

Although it bears the name of the second film, the game includes set pieces from Peter Jackson's Fellowship of the Ring too--Aragorn beating back the Ring Wraiths at Weathertop, the battle with the goblins in the dwarvern caverns of Moria, plus the Battle of Helm's Deep and more footage from The Two Towers.

There isn't much more to the game; it looks great, provides a good dose of action and is well executed, and it's obvious that a lot of thought has been put into capturing the feel of the films. It's woefully short and most gamers are going to breeze through this in less time than it takes to watch the special features on the Fellowship of the Ring DVD. But if you're a fan of the film or love a bit of mindless button bashing, then this is a good tie-in. --Kristen Bowditch

5.0 out of 5 stars WHAT'S THE CRITISISM? 5 Mar 2003
Format:Video Game
This is the most breathtaking game I have ever seen. The graphics are out of this world, the soundtrack is fantastic, the gameplay is stunning. This game is not suited to us mortals.
You start off the game with an introduction battle, The 'last alliance'. After that, you play as aragorn at Amun Sol, protecting the pathetic Frodo from a 'cruel' death by the ringwraiths.
After those two, you have the wonderful choice of playing as aragorn, gimli or legolas. Battling your way through different environment you eventually reach the climax of helms deep. The levels are gripping and original. Cool sword (or axe) combinations add to the effect. You can even unlock a secret level, character, and cheat codes.
Interviews with the film stars and producers are also fun to watch. 'Frodo', 'Gandalf', 'Aragorn', 'Legolas' and 'Gimli' all give their oppinion on the game.
The game only has one con, it gives half of the film away. Do not play until you've seen the movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best action adventure for a long time. 3 Nov 2003
Format:Video Game
The lord of the rings the two towers is quite simply magnificent. This is a basically a hack and slash game using a variety of weapons such as swords, bows, knives and axes as you start the quest to destroy the ring. The whole game is based on the first two films by peter jackson and i think it does a great job of capturing the detail of the film well and has clips from both the first two films. Playing with a choice of aragorn, legolas, or gimli (and an unlockable character)is a great choice of players although i would of liked to see frodo and sam play a active role in the game. One of the greatests assets of the game is the upgrading menu where you can spend your experience points on deathly combo's that will make your completion of the levels that little bit quicker. With cheats and interviews from actors from the film this game will keep you playing for months and if you complete the whole game and one of your characters is on level experience 10 you will be able to unlock a secret level where you take on everysingle enemy imaginable. A truly great game.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (PS2) 28 Dec 2002
Format:Video Game
The films have been excellent so far in my opinion. I have had the chance to see them both on the big screen and after watching The Two Towers I thought I’d buy the game to see how it holds up on the Playstation 2.
The conversion from film to game is excellent as you work your way through the missions or levels (16 of them) you work through the first film to the second fighting all the characters from the movies. The cut scenes are great telling the story perfect as you fight your way to the end, if you’ve not seen the films yet playing this game will give you a good idea what they are about. The sound is very good also, with music from the films.
All in all this is a very well worked game and if you liked the movie you will love the game!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lord of the rings: The two towers. 2 Feb 2004
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
When I bought this game I was expecting it to be a great game with realistic graphics and a huge variety of things to do, and you know what? I was absolutely right. The two towers lets you play as Legolas(the best) Aragorn(2nd best) and Gimli(not so good.) You need to play through huge fantastic levels fighting Orcs and Uruk-Hai not to mention a cave troll.
Bad Points: This game has minor flaws,
1) It is somewhat repetitive,
2) It doesn't follow the exact storyline.
Overall:
Graphics 8/10
Gameplay 8/10
Sound 9/10
Lifespan 7/10

4.0 out of 5 stars One Ring to Rule Them All . . . . 20 Feb 2003
Format:Video Game
Welcome to Middle-Earth, home to three of the best films ever made (if the third one's as good as the first two), heroes, villain's, sorcerors, orcs, magi, monsters, swords, sorcery and a plot so ludicrously hard to follow that most will have no idea. Yep, it's Lord of The Rings, and it's finally found it's way onto console in the wake of the first two superb films by Peter Jackson. This game was probably best to wait though, as the PS2 and Xbox, really do the book and films justice.
The game is essentially a scrolling hack and slash em' up (is that a genre?), where you control on of three members of the fellowship of the ring, Aaragorn the ranger and heir to the throne of Gondor, a formidable swordsman, and half-decent bowman, Legolas, a prince of the elves, whose Archery skills are second to none, or Gimli, son of Gloin, a dwarf powerhouse whose axe will cut swathes through the enemy. Each level (let's get this clear now, this game covers both of the first two films), requires play with all three charcters (bar the first two), and each requires a different approach depending on your character, for example, Legolas is going to have a tough time in the crowded mayhem of Balin's Tomb, whereas Gimli will suffer in the Westfold, where ranged attacks are preferable over close quaters fighting. As each level is beaten with any character it unlocks the next, but progress should be wary.
The reason for this is experience. In a level, if you successfully beat enemies without getting hurt and using combos, you will build up your skill meter and earn better experience, so replaying can be good. Experience advances your characters level, and as their level increases, they can buy more skills with their experience points.
