This review is from: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (PS2) (Video Game)
I had big hopes for this game. I assumed it would be a detailed RPG/Interactive Movie with plenty of room for character development, puzzle solving and a flexible linear environment similar to Metal Gear. Alas, it is a hank-and-slash involving little more than killing vast amounts of Orcs followed by a Boss. The saving is incredibly frustrating, you can only save at the end of each level meaning you have to go through the whole level every time you stop playing -even if you've got up to the Boss-. You can't stop the cut scenes even if you've seen them dozens of times and there is zero interaction with other characters. The graphics may be great but overall this is a missed opportunity.
