Did it made the promised goal?
15 June 2005 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Well in one word yes. The goal was to make a LotR game that would be true to the movies and they did a great job. The levels are well recognized from the movie architecture. Even the characters movements have been taken from the movie into the game. Butt now for some fine details.

You start the game, and well well the THX logo appears. This means you will have a nice listening pleasure waiting up ahead. And its true, the sound/music is terrific. Just think of it, you playing with you're favi character and the tension moves up with the well known music from Howard Shore. Great hah?!! :-) When it comes to the graphics I must say that except from a incident with a low frame rate on the PS2 and NGC its all well done. Even though some details are made of low quality graphics they do give a life feel to the surroundings.

Voiceacting? One word. Superb! The gameplay is nice, not excellent but its higher difficulty than "The Two Towers" game makes it more fun. Interactive elements. Such as throwing spears, pouring boiling oil over enemies give an extra feel of freedom. It will take you at least 10 hours to complete all levels for the first time. So you won't be bored soon cause.....

The cinematics give extra variety and when you finish the game you get three characters, plus extra bonuses after finishing a mission.

Has the game got flaws? Yes one big one, the camera angles are sometimes a pain in the ass. But don't let that ruin the fun cause this war has just begun!!! :-)
