Rated 10 out of 10 by bigmoose LOTR III
First, i will say that this is a great game, especially for the gamecube. The controls are great and easy to understand. Now i'm a huge lord of the rings fan, and when i got this i was happy, and that hasn't changed. The challenge is great--the game is very hard. I'm stuck on the level of the southern gate, on easy! I have came so close to finishing it! this game is addicting. It is so much fun! Now for the gamecube and the fact that it was made in the early 2000s, the graphics are a revolution. They're ok! And the game isn't too long or too short, thus making the length fantastic. Everyone knows the drop-dead classic storyline by the genius in John Ronald Ruel Tolkien, with the ring of power and Aragorn taking over the throne of Gondor as the Heir of Isildur. You get to live the story and take the famous characters such as Legolas, Frodo, Gimli, and Aragorn through it. If you are a hard-core medival violent gamer or just love fantasy storylines, then I recommend this game100%
Rated 10 out of 10 by ARWEN VERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRY HARD!
Lord of the Rings: the Return of the King is absolutely amazing. I LOVE IT! Talk about awesome graphics, sound, and game play! It is extremely hard though! I'm stuck on the ON TOP OF THE WALL level w/ Gandalf and on The paths of the dead with Aragorn.I've gotten through all the hobbit's levels which Were SWEEET! the only thing, you can't play any of the levels you've passed over again until you complete the game. And I really don't have a lot of time during the day to play which stinks. but oh well. what can I do?!?!?! I'm doing it on EASY mode too. A friend has passed all the levels which makes me feel dumb. It's really fun though. I hope this review helps. one more thing, can anyone give me some advise on these levels?!?!?!?!?!?! I'de really appreciate it! Thanx! "May the Grace of the Valar be with You"

Lord of the Rings the Return of the King is a game where you play through the end of the second movie and the whole third movie. In the game, you play throught three paths of the game. The first one being the path of the wizard. In this path, you play as Gandalf and you play through the adventures that Gandalf plays through such as the battle of Minas Tirth. The second path is the path of the hobbit. I this path you play as Sam (you unlock Frodo at the end of the game, as well as Pipin and Mery). The last path is the path of the king. In this path, you get to choose from Aragon, Legolas, or Gimili. Once you beat the final level at Mount Doom with Frodo, you unlock Faramir (brother of Boromir), Merry, and Pipin. You also unlock the feature that lets you play as any character, no mater what path your playing in. I like this game becuz it has very great graphics for a gamecube. I also like the gameplay becuz it feels like your in the movie, except that instead of watching it your controlling the action. I would recomened this game to Lord of the Ring fans and really anyone who is looking for a great action game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by NintendoGamerII Relatively Cheap
To begin with this game is just a masterpiece from EA Games. This game follows the storyline, includes original characters, and even has scenes from the EXTENED LOTR movie. The graphics are pretty great considering that this is a Gamcube game. The characters are recognizeable and the environments are actually well thought out and developed. The music and sounds for this game are perfect. You have the voices of the actual actors, music from the films, and other sounds such as water splashing, explosions, etc. Unlike the previous LOTR game, The Two Towers, this one lets you interact with the environment. You can do all sorts of stuff such as chucking spears or launching catapults. Another difference between both games would be the character choices and paths. In this game there are at least 9 different players you can be (after unlocking several) which gives you a better variety of skills yet there is a catch. The game is split into three different paths in which you can only be certain players untill further notice. To make a long review short I would recommend this game to anyone who is looking for a great game. P.S. I didn't know that the Lord of the Rings was a movie until I played this and since then I was hooked. O_O = Mind Blowing
Rated 10 out of 10 by REMKFAN The Best LOTR Game Yet
Lord of the Rings was meant to be played this way. This is the perfect video game adaptation of the story, and I highly HIGHLY recommend this to anybody who is a fan of the movies and books. The game is VERY hard, but not impossible. The levels actually increase in difficulty as you progress through, which makes for a nice pace. The last couple levels may take you a few tries, but the game is fun enough that you will want to continue playing. Nowadays, the graphics wouldn't be so impressive, but when this game first came out the graphics were amazing. The music and sound is straight from the movie soundtrack, a very smart choice, and all the actors from the movie return to voice their characters again, another very smart move for a video game based off a movie. The story fits exactly within the end of Two Towers and through Return of the King, capturing all the highlight moments. You have more characters to play at the start, and even more to unlock upon completing the game. You also can unlock two levels, which are pretty much fighting against waves and waves of enemies, so the replay value is very high, especially with Co-op. Overall, this is the best Lord of the Rings game ever made, and any action, fantasy, and or LOTR fan should add this to their collection.
Rated 10 out of 10 by thethirdelric Welcome To Middle Earth
this game is great for an fan of the trilogy, fight shelob the massive spider as sam wise, as aragorn have the king of the dead take up your service and aid you and legolas and gimli in the battle at pelennor fields, this game follows the movie and books, but does something even better, it puts you in middle earth, you'll fight the witch king with merry and eowen, you'll struggle with frodo against golom to destroy the ring. and with the amazing two player feature you'll be able to relive all of your favorite LOTR moments with a friend. this game is a MUST HAVE for any fan of the series and if you haven't played it get it TODAY, you wont be disappointed.
Rated 9 out of 10 by NewbornRiddler LORD OF THE RINGS FOR THE WIN!
Everything about this game is great. The characters and the customization, the levels, the fighting style. A good amount of detail was put into this game. Any and all lord of the rings fans should buy thig game you will not be disappointed. They have all the actors do the voices of the characters and the music is from the movie. The game allows the player or players go beyond the movies and play through 3 different campagins. Once you beat the game you unlock new characters like Faramir and then you can go back and play any level with any character you want. I had a blast playing this game and still do. This a great buy for any gamer!
Rated 9 out of 10 by Cap1995 Greatest LOTR GameCube Game
One of the greatest GameCube games ever. If you get it you will enjoy it. I was able to finish it before Two Towers. If it was only Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimili. Two Towers would be better, but you also get 6 others including Gandalf, Frodo, and Sam.Get it enjoy it and have fun!
