5.0 out of 5 stars
look at the rating......enough said!!!!, 20 Nov. 2003
to review it quickly (if I can), the game has three seperate paths :
1)the path of the wizard (playable as Gandalf).
2) the path of the King (playable as Aragon, Legolas and Gimli) 3) the path of the hobbits (playable as Sam and Frodo).
Once the game is completed, you may play as any character in any level (including 3 hidden characters)
The game incudes many scenes from the movie aswell as ACTUAL VOICE OVERS FROM THE CAST OF THE MOVIE (which you can see them perform once you have completed the game). There is a co-op version for the option of a two player game.
In comparison to "the Two Towers" the game was designed to be and is much harder and EA are so convinced you won't complete the game in every way, they have put on an 'unlockable' feature?????
The graphics are similar as is the gameplay (which where both great).
The levels are more interactive and the majority are much larger with more check points.
There are more upgrades to be obtained and you can now share upgrade points with other characters or another player. And all charaters have a special ability.
The scenes from the movie blend into gaming graphics in a much smoother form.
The replay value of the game is up by 1000% due to the co-op game and number of available upgrades.
The game is really worth a buy and is sure to have you addicted after a very short amount of time, worth every penny!!!!!
