This game is really really fun to play! I bought it the day after it was released, and I still haven't been able to put it down. It is such a great improvement over Two Towers that you'll be hooked as well. The story itself centers around 3 different paths: Gandalf as he defends Minas Tirith from another Helm's Deep-sized army, Frodo+Sam on their journey to Mordor, and Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli as they travel through the Paths of the Dead, to Minas Tirith, and so forth. The levels themselves are beautifully rendered, and the addition of weapons in specific environments really makes for a completely new feeling game. The controls are much more detailed, so now if you get surrounded you can easily engage multiple enemies at a time. And finally after all the complaints about it not being in Two Towers, you can also play Co-op with a friend! No more having split screens, you both play on a normal sized screen! This game also features the option to play online, but since I don't have the capabilities to do so, I can't really review that part. The only thing stopping me from giving this 5 stars is that some of the levels are incredibly hard, even when set on easy. I guarantee that you'll go through each level a few times before you beat it. All in all this game is definitely worth the money and your time, so I recommend that you purchase it.

The first two Lord of the Rings titles belonged to that rare group of worthy film-based games. How many movie tie-in games have been less-than-stellar garbage capitalizing on a film's popularity? With "The Return of the King," EA concludes their trilogy with one of the best games of the year. A warning to those who have not read the books and do not know how the trilogy ends: As expected, the game contains many spoilers.
The biggest difference between ROTK and its predecessors may be the amount of action: Fellowship was mostly plot-oriented, and Two Towers featured one great action piece--Helm's Deep. ROTK, however, thrives on action. From start to finish, this game is non-stop action and adventure: gargantuan Siege Towers, monstrous trolls, bloodthirsty Uruk-Hai--this game gives you all you can handle, and then some. You'll be thankful for the occasional pauses to rest your thumbs--before the next attack begins. The game features voice-work from the film's actors and some of the most amazing backgrounds and environments I've ever seen in a video game, with perfect contrast between light and dark elements Like the films, there's meticulous attention to detail. Character design and appearance is first-rate, and character animation (thanks to motion-capture technology) is smooth and even. In addition, the sound quality (THX, no less) is outstanding--every roar, every clash of steel resounds through your speakers.
ROTK features three distinct playable storylines: The Path of the King, The Path of the Hobbits, and The Path of the Wizard. One can play as Aragorn, Legolas, Gandalf, Gimli, Frodo, or Sam, and beating the game unlocks three new characters.

I just thought I'd post this for all the parents out there thinking of this for christmas....
First off this is one of the best games out right now. It's incredible, and the best movie based game I've ever played.
Thank you Peter Jackson and EA! Great job!
However, be warned that while this game is incredible in gameplay, graphics, story, and sound, it's also very difficult...even on "easy". Think of it this way: There are games where you can just hit the "x" button rapid-fire to get out of any situation. This isn't a game like that. "Return of the King" goes more like this: Block, jump back, use a combo move of several buttons to knock the enemy down, then use a finishing move to end it, then turn around and deal with the next 20 orcs you have to slay...continue for 15 minutes and you get the idea.
Granted, I'm exagerrating a little and you can get by quite a bit with just random button hits, but the point is that this game has a complexity/difficulty that many games don't have, and it might be frustrating for some players. If your buying this for your child and he's/she's a player who just nails the X button all day and throws tantrums easily, you may want to save yourself the headaches and pass this one up for something easier.
The game was designed to keep you on the edge of your seat and on the verge of failing the entire time. It definately works. I haven't been as frantic and frustrated with any game in a long time...but conversely I haven't ever played a game where when I finally beat a level I actually jumped up and down screaming with joy. It keeps you on those emotional extremes, and the game gets 4 out of 5 because of that.

What was really missing from the Two Towers was the co-op mutliplayer option. They had the computer controling the other player but as computer AI is no where near human AI co-op is the way to go. I wish more games would bring back this option for those of us who invite friends over to play because not all gamers are loners.
