First off, this is a portable game. Portable games are not meant to live up to console games, and they don't. However, the can still be immensly enjoyable, and this game is a prime example. Why? Well, I'll tell you.
This is a sequel to last year's Two Towers game. So the gameplay is very similiar, but with some welcome tweaks and gameplay differences that add to the game. Here are some examples:
The characters attacks have more animation. (What I mean by this is that their attacks have more moves) All you do to attack is press the B button of course, but unlike in the Two Towers, your character does more than one monotonus motion. This is a very welcome tweak to gameplay.
While this is only a little thing, you can see reflections in the water of your character. This adds to the realism of the game greatly.
Do you remember in The Two Towers when you could heal at any time with your active skill of Herbal Healing? This was convenient, because in the midst of a fray, if you were getting low on health and had enough Spirit Points, you could heal with the press of a button. To do that in this game, you must have Kingsfoil herbs in your backpack. If you have no herbs, you can't heal. (In turn, healing does not deplete spirit points any more). I suppose this makes the game more realistic, but it also makes it much harder.
Okay. I've listed the three major gameplay changes. Now to tell about the game.
It follows the plot of the movie very closely. You go to Orthanc, the Paths of the Dead, Gondor, Mordor, and many more places. If you play as a different character, you get different levels. Here are the players you can play as.
Aragorn. The best hand-to-hand fighter in the game. Those who have played the Two Towers remember his two-sword capability.

This game is so awesome, it's ridiculous. Obviously, Game Boy games are at a major disadvantage when compared to most console or PC games, simply because you can't pack that much into a cartridge. Even so, I think ROTK beats out any other handheld game, and even some of my Playstation games! It's amazing!
Pros:
- Top-notch graphics
- Easy-to-use controls, good for even first-timers
- Provides a good challenge (in later levels, anyway)
- Has more available characters than either previous LOTR game
- Excellent replay value - play it again and again, and keep the same character leveling up!
- Much more realistic than TT. You actually have to WORK to heal. Imagine that.
- Just plain cool!
Cons:
- Legolas is the only one with a worthwhile ranged attack, and Eowyn doesn't even have one.
- Legolas is the only one who can charge up his standard B attack by holding down B button. In TT, everyone could.
As for the characters...
Aragorn is a solid hitter, especially if you give him two weapons instead of just one and a shield. Late-game, when he's leveled up, he can deal massive damage with a single blow.
Gandalf is really powerful IF you know how to use him. Otherwise, I wouldn't suggest playing as him if you are a first-timer. His Lightstrike is positively deadly with good Courage.
Gimli is, sadly, not the best fighter in the game. In fact, he pretty much sucks. But hey, every game has its ups and downs, right?
Eowyn is the fastest attacker in the game, barring Legolas with Galadriel's Blessing. Her sword moves like greased lightning, and if you upgrade her Strength and Accuracy, she's a walking Cuisinart. Her one major problem: NO RANGED ATTACK! AAAAAGGHH!
Legolas is by far the single best character. Period.

The other reviews I've read really don't do this game justice. I don't know about you, but I'm a complete LOTR fanatic, and it annoys me no end to see 'ogsgilioth' instead of Osgiliath or 'shilob's lair' instead of Shelob's lair. And what about "Erowyn"'s part at the Battle of "Pleanor" Fields? Oh brother. Take it from a LOTR and video game expert, this game is AWESOME. The best RPG handheld experience out there, this game features completely customizable stats, skill trees, and quite literally millions of item combinations.

There are 6 characters to choose from, each with their own pros and cons. I like Legolas for long range, "Arogorn" for hand-to-hand combat and Eowyn for speed. "gimly" is a new addition to the single-player mode, being available only in TTT's multiplayer. ROTK has hundreds of short levels based on locations from the movie, each brimming with baddies varying from "olks" and goblins to trolls and Nazgul. And don't forget the "elephants" that one reviewer found so intimidating.

This game is an improvement over The Two Towers in that there are bonus levels you can play single-player to up your character's level, and also the Ranger Hollow, which allows you to move an item from one of your characters to another, which could only be accomplished through multiplayer in TTT. A bit more reality is introduced, healing being brought about through athelas {kingsfoil-you can carry up to 2o at a time} and other such items, Legolas's special arrows being found in numbered sets instead of infinite supplies {drat!}, and a 5-point limit to skills instead of a 20-point one {drat again}. Also, items have minimum levels, meaning a level 3 Frodo couldn't use a level 6 knife.
