4.0 out of 5 stars does the game match the great film?, 27 May 2004
This review is from: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (Xbox Classics) (Video Game)
YES, IT SORT OF DOES.
IT HAS BEEN ON ORIGIANL RELEASE FOR QUITE A WHILE NOW AND IT WAS SO POPULAR THE XBOX PEOPLE DECIDED TO RE-RELEASE IT IN THE CLASSIC RANGE. IT WAS POPULAR BECAUSE OF THE FILMS, I THINK ANYWAY, BUT WHEN THE XBOX OWNERS GOT HOME THEY DIDN'T JUST GET A LOUSEY PIECE OF HYPED UP TRASH (*COUGH* ENTER THE MATRIX *COUGH*) THEY GOT A GAME THAT WAS HIGHER THAN AVERAGE ON THE GRAPHICS SIDE, SCORED AVERAGE ON GAMEPLAY BUT SCORED LOADS FOR BEING A GREAT ADAPTION OF THE FILMS.
YOU BATTLE WITH THE HELP OF ARA-BOB, GIM-BOB AND LEGA-BOB. THEY ALL HAVE DIFFERENT ATTRIBUTES WHICH ADDS VARIETY, WHICH IS NEEDED AS YOU TEND TO BUUTON-BASH YOUR WAY THROUGH ON EASY MODE.
THE CREATURES THAT ALL HAD SMALL PARTS IN THE MOVIE, HAVE BIG PARTS IN THE GAME AS YOU HIT THEM, STRIKE THEM AND NAIL 'EM TO THE GROUND, THEN MOVE ONTO ANOTHER ONE WHO SEEMS TO KNOW NOTHING ABOUT WHERE HE IS, WHY HE IS THERE AND WHETHER HE SHOULD WALK INTO A TREE OR NOT. I AM TALKING ABOUT THE GAMES AI. IT LEAVES ALOT TO BE DESIRED BUT WHERE THE GAME AVERAGES IN AI IT DUN 'ALF MAKE UP FOR IN THE GRAPHICS. THEY MAY NOT BE AS CRISP AS SAY GRAND TURISMO 3 BUT THE PLACES AND SURROUNDINGS ARE BEAUTIFULLY TEXTURED SO THAT YOU KNOW WHAT IS A TREE AND WHAT IS A WALL. YOU REALLY DO THINK THAT YOU'RE THERE; IN THE THICK OF IT AS YOU REMEMBER HOW ARA-BOB THREW WOOD CHIPPINGS AT THE 1000'S OF URAK-HAI AS THEY CHRAGED AT HELMS DEEP, IN THE FILM. THE GAME HELPS YOU REMEMBER THESE THINGS AND IT COULD ONLY DO THAT BY MAKING YOU SEE A WELL REPRESENTED MIDDLE EARTH AND THAT IS WHAT EA HAVE DONE.
SO LET'S ROUND THIS THING OFF WITH A CONCLUSION. THE GAME IS WORTH BUYING IF YOU LOVED THE FILMS BECAUSE YOU WILL INSTANTLY RECOGNISE MIDDLE EARTH AND THEREFORE ENJOY IT LIKE 'ECK. FOR YOU WHO BELIEVE VERY GOOD FILMS ARE RUBBISH OR ARE AN ARTY-FARTY, INDEPENDENT FILM, TYPE WHO HAS A GRUDGE AGAINST BIG, S.EFFECTS, HOL'WOOD FILMS AND HAVEN'T SEEN THE FILMS THEN I STILL BELIEVE YOU WOULD ENJOY THE GAME.
JUST REMEMBER THAT ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IS NOT ALWAYS INTELLIGENT AND CAN LOOK VERY ARTIFICIAL!
