Product Description

Product Description

EA's first The Lord of the Rings action adventure game will allow players to take control of the motion picture trilogy's action heroes--Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli and Gandalf--with other members of the Fellowship taking an active role during gameplay. Players will battle a variety of Orcs and square off against vicious boss monsters including the Cave Troll and Saruman. A tactical gameplay system will encourage players to react quickly and be strategic with their selection of characters, weaponry and combat moves. Over 30 levels per character will challenge each member of the Fellowship, bringing the grand total to over 120 levels in the entire game. Linked play will accommodate multiplayer action via the GBA link cable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly great 6 May 2003
Finally, a game with a massive license is actually good. Very good indeed. In fact, I would go as far as to say you would struggle to find a better action/adventure game on the GBA.
Graphicly, its very polished. From the gobsmacking good quality of the movie footage at the beginning of the game to the well animated and detailed sprites of Gandalf & co, Lord of the Rings: Two Towers is a pleasure to look at. The well drawn scenery changes as the story progresses, through forests, underground mines and snowy mountains and you feel like you could almost be there in Middle Earth.
The music is also top-notch. Dragged kicking and screaming straight from the movie and squeezed into the tiny GBA sound department it ranges from upbeat battle music to all emotional in all the sad parts. Then there is the LOTR theme tune, done brilliently by the GBA. It make you just want to get up, grab your kitchen knife and go on your own adventure in the quest for orcs. Its easy to get carried away...
Most importantly though, the game plays really well. Never frustrating, never unfair, it moves along at a good pace, full of action and exploration. Add to that some RPG elements of obtaining new equipment and skills and 5 playable characters with separate quests taking in different environments and aspects of the story and you've got a tough, long lasting game that is sure to appeal to fans of the genre, the films, and anyone who appreciates decent quality games where you can feel the effort that has been put into it.

5.0 out of 5 stars best ever!! 28 Nov 2003
By A Customer
this game was amazing. I was worried about buying it because the first one was not very good but when I began I was totally hooked. It took me ages to work everything out and there are some things that I still can't do yet but that is the fun of this game, you could keep going for ages and not get bored! Anyone who hasn't got this, I would definatly recomend it!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lord of the Rings-coming from the daddy 17 Nov 2003
By Omega 3
Like Lord of the Rings? Well, even if if you don't you'll don't
you'll love this game, it holds suprising gameplay and a massive lifespan, with 6 characters and over one hundred levels, this is a real treat, and by far the best game on the GBA

5.0 out of 5 stars "Legolas, what do your Elven eyes see?" 2 Sep 2003
By A Customer
Lord of the Rings The Two Towers is an amazing RPG, the greatest on the advance. If you played Golden Sun and thought that was an amazing game, your in for the time of your life. The battles are quicker than in Golden Sun, it plays just like an RPG on the computer or PS2, PS1, Gamecube or X-Box.
You can be Aragorn, Legolas, Gandalf, Frodo, Eowyn and, if you completed twice with different characters and went on the multiplayer mode, Gimli.
The artifacts are easily found, and the skills are amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uruk-Hai Attack! 20 May 2003
This game truely is the best game on earth. You can play as Aragorn, Legolas, Gandalf, Frodo or Eoywn. There are over 30 levels per character. If you are a fan of lord of the rings then this is the game for you.
You fight against orcs, uruk-hai, ringwraiths, wood trolls, cave trolls and even the balrog. You battle in all the main places in both the fellowship of the ring and the two towers. It is the only game that made me play my GBA 24 hours a day.
I would suggest this game to anyone. This game is well worth the rating of 5 stars! The graphics for this game are rather special. This game is quite hard to understand but you get the hang of it.

First impressions? very slick, great movie clip intro, very nice graphics, good sound, straight into the action. Lots of orcs to kill, atmospheric scenery & sound, visually very faithful to the films.
Then some more orcs to kill, then yet more, then a few more for good measure. Don't expect a deep plot here, this is a good old fashioned dungeon bash. If it moves, hack it, zap it, shoot it, and then hack it some more. Get experience, enhance your character, kill bigger & badder stuff.
But if that's your thing, this game does it very well. The graphics are impressive, the sound is pretty good (FX better than music). The combination of different levels & different character abilities does make each character's game different.
Overall? visually impressive, good hack & slay gameplay but plot very linear, although good character development. Waste of money? no.
