Product Details:

Return to Middle-earth in the only video game based on the epic final chapter of the highly-acclaimed The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy. Developed using the same digital assets as the films, The Return of the King re-creates in stunning detail the final events of the War of the Ring.

EA's second "The Lord of the Rings" action adventure game, The Lord of the Rings, The Return of the King, will allow players to journey through multiple gameplay paths, taking control of the motion picture trilogy's heroes. Defend the walls of Minas Tirith as Gandalf, raise the Army of the Dead as Aragorn, Legolas, or Gimli, and with Frodo and Sam, deliver the ring to the fiery depths of Mount Doom.

Based on the environments from the upcoming movie, The Return of the King's third person gameplay will include immersive action and adventure elements set in rich, interactive levels. An all-new multiplayer co-op mode will let players form their own Fellowship before embarking on their journey through Middle-earth.
* Eight playable and secret characters including Gandalf, Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, Sam, and Frodo with exclusive voice-over provided by the actual actors from the films.

* An all-new co-op multiplayer mode will allow players to team up with a companion.

* Over twelve interactive environments authentically reproduced from the films. Explore the Paths of the Dead, defend Minas Tirith, and battle Sauron's forces at the Pelennor Fields before final confrontations at the Black Gate and the Crack of Doom.

* Third person action/adventure gameplay incorporates multiple character paths for each member of the Fellowship.

* More than just a backdrop to the action, the game environments are interactive, letting players incorporate the various environments into their strategies for both melee and ranged combat. Characters will have the ability to jump and swing from ropes, fire catapults, kick boulders, etc.

* Enhanced control with the right analog stick allows players to perform multi-directional attacks and combos with ease as they battle their way through the forces of evil.

* Battle vicious boss monsters including Shelob, the Witch King, and the final showdown with the Dark Lord Sauron.

* Seamless movie-to-game transitions and never-before-seen exclusive movie footage from the upcoming The Return of the King movie.

* Immersive musical score composed by Academy Award-winner Howard Shore.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 4 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 5 out of 5 by from 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.
