Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Based on New Line Cinema's upcoming film adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic fantasy novel, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King video game puts the fate of Middle-earth in the hands of the gamer. In the final installment of the blockbuster movie trilogy, players must destroy the One Ring by casting it into the Crack of Doom, freeing Middle-earth from the clutches of the Dark Lord Sauron.

EA's second Lord of the Rings action adventure game, The Return of the King, allows 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.

Product Description

Based on the final chapter of the film trilogy, this game takes you deep into the battles of the War of the Rings for the ultimate confrontation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best game from a film July 20, 2003
Having just come from Comic-Con where it was available for visitors to play, this is a great game. I've greatly enjoyed the Two Towers game, but this one beats it hands down. The graphics are superior in every way: The environments are rich and natural (wait until you see Minas Tirith in flames) and the characters are much more detailed, even down to fabric and hair texture. The fights are just as engaging as in Two Towers (cave trolls everywhere!) and as in TT the original actors' voices are used extensively.
But here's the best: There is team play! You and your significant other (who obviously wouldn't be your significat other if they didn't love LOTR) can now play right along side of your character. Legolas and Gimli back to back fighting trolls as the city burns around them! (And in one full screen -not some disorienting split-screen.)
Sorry, you will have no choice but to buy this game - and you will never see the light of day again.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Movie, only you are in control! September 24, 2004
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The release of Lord of the Rings: Return of the King for xbox was much anticipated by many avid gamers, myself inculded. When I first purchased the game, I was amazed that there were three different paths that you could take in the game (unlike the Two Towers). The three paths are: The Way of the King, the Way of the Wizard, and the Way of the Hobbit. The first battle you are automatically thrown into, however. This is the end of the battle of Helmsdeep! You are playing as Gandalf the Gray and must thwart the orcs and save Helms deep! After you have beaten this level, however, you are free to chose which path you want to take first. The Path of the King is the hardest and starts off with Aragorn, Gimili, and Legolas going to the undead to enlist their help to fight the Orcs. The Path of the Wizard is slightly shorter, but not easy. Here you play only as Gandalf the White and are involved in everything from the destruction of Sauron's tower, to Minas Tirith where you have to run around and knock off the orcs and the bombard towers, to the Courtyard of Minas Tirith where you are charged with protecting the women and children from the orc onslaught. Lastly, the Path of the Hobbit is hard, but fun. You play as Sam, most of the time and have to go through everything the hobbits went through in the movie.

Once you complete all three paths, you will be able to play the Black Gate level. Here you can pick from any of these characters (Gimili, Aragorn, Gandalf, Sam, Legolas) and you will have to fight , along side your allies to defeat the armies of Sauron outside his own Gates.

On Completion of this level, you will be able to partake in the final level of the Game (The Crack of Doom).

4.0 out of 5 stars The Return of the King for Xbox The BIG review!!! March 21, 2004
By Jon
First Impressions
As soon as you put the CD in the Xbox it starts the game. You have to sit through almost 2 minutes of inescapable logos and stuff until you get to a kind of prologue bit. Then your stuffed right into the middle of a battle as Gandalf! This adds to the sudden excitement of the game.
The graphics are state of the art and they surpass even Xbox's usual brilliance, EA Games has another award winner here. Everything is just so realistic! The settings match the film perfectly, Helms Deep, Osgiliath, Minas Tirith to name but a few! The characters are amazingly exact and you really feel like you are the person! There are small commentaries before each level read by Gandalf over the top of real footage from various parts of the three films, then you are lead into the game by means of the film kind of merging into the game graphics, the join is unnoticeable, honestly!
Game play
The game play is even better than the graphics, if at all possible. There are three different "paths". Path of the wizard using Gandalf; Path of the King using Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli; path of the Hobbits using Frodo and Sam. You basically fight your way through Orcs, Uruk-Hai, The Dead, Spiders, Easterlings, Cave Trolls and various other evil creatures to complete your goal. You can interact with items around you as well; spears, ladders, rocks, catapults, levers, ropes...etc. You get to fight Bosses such as Shelob, the king of the dead, Sauron's messenger and even the Ringwraiths themselves. Of course you get to battle the evil Gollum on the very edge of Mount Doom. There are also levels that your characters can aim for, you start at level one and then can go as far as level twenty. As you're battling you are earning yourself experience points.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best for XBox this year November 16, 2003
Lord of the Rings - Return of the King videogame is now out for just about every platform. You can be Aragorn, Sam, Gandalf or other characters on your quest to save Middle Earth!
Made in the same style as Two Towers, the game covers the third movie complete with video clips from the movie, actor interviews, voice-overs by the original actors and much more. Gandalf's actor, for example, jokes that the wizard in the game seems to be far more agile than the wizard in the movie was :)
The gameplay is very similar to Two Towers and apparently they made many improvements based on user feedback. For example, when you do character upgrades, you can choose just to upgrade the character you are currently playing with (say Faramir) or to upgrade ALL characters for that ability. That makes the upgrade paths VERY interesting.
There are three main event paths. There is the way of the Wizard, where Gandalf takes on the Gondor defenses. There's the way of the King, where Aragorn builds up his army. Then there's the way of the Hobbit, where poor Sam and Frodo struggle their ways into the depths of Moria.
It's a great preview of the movie, showing lots of film clips of the various battles and scenes. There are many very slick changes between video and gameplay that really make you feel involved. The character movement is great, between the combo attacks and killing blows.
It's not just a hack and slash, there's a fair amount of strategy involved, both in in-game handling of the enemies as well as how to upgrade to get all characters to the end point. And once you reach the end - the game isn't over. There are characters to unlock, and special skills to earn for each one.
