I have to admit I bought this game and my Gameboy Advance for one simple reason: I'm a HUGE Lord of the Rings fan (of the books, movies, etc).
I've played this game for Playstation 2 and really enjoyed it. The GBA game is no exception. It's incredibly addicting - with loads of scenes, characters and weapons based on the Lord of the Rings films. I have played Legolas, Aragorn, Frodo and Gandalf so far and I have to say Legolas is my favorite. He was wicked with an arrow on the films and those abilities transfer very well on the game. Same goes for Aragorn and his sword-wielding abilities.
The game pretty much follows the scenarios of the film. For Legolas, for instance, the adventure begins on the foothills of Caradhras, then progresses to Moria, Amon Hen, Rohan, etc. The beauty of the game is that each adventure is geared towards the character's perspective so that what Legolas does isn't exactly the same as Aragorn's. They have their own set of challenges and paths. Each player also has his own "backpack" where he can load up and upgrade his/her tools, weapons, etc.
As a non-regular gamer, it took me just a short while to figure out how to play the game and I really enjoy this one. I'm already looking forward to EA Games' "Return of the King" game that will hopefully come later this year! I highly recommend this for your Gameboy collection!

Are you a huge fan of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, and especially the Peter Jackson movies based on the trilogy? Then you will not be disappointed by this game. The gameplay could be better, but the music, sound and movie-related visuals more than make up for it.
Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers is an adventure/role-playing game based on the films by Peter Jackson (which are based on the books by J.R.R. Tolkien). The object of the game is to [cut] and slash your way through 100 levels based on scenes from the first two movies, collecting items and experience points as you go. Since I'm not an experienced gamer I can't compare this game to other games of its genre, but I will try to give you my impressions of it.
Starting the Game: At the start of the game you are given a choice of five characters whom you can play as: Aragorn, Legolas, Frodo, Gandalf and Eowyn (Gimli is also available, but only after you have unlocked his character, and only in multiplayer mode). Each character has special abilities and talents, and each character takes a different path through the game. I chose to play as Aragorn.
Gameplay is pretty straightforward: [destroy] enemies, take their stuff, and wander around and collect stuff. Killing enemies is a simple affair; hit the B button repeatedly to [slash] at them with your sword, or hit the A button for special attacks. You have to be discriminating, however, as to when you use special attacks; they deplete your spirit points, so you have to wait for your spirit points to charge back up before using them again.
The fighting in this game is not especially challenging. I was able to dispatch all the enemies pretty easily even though I'm not a seasoned game player.

The Lord Of The Rings : The Two Towers video game for the Game Boy Advance is awsome! Battle is intense , and gameplay is excellent! The graphics , sound , and storyline are wonderful. It is not at all hard to control the characters you are playing as. And , you get to choose your own characters you want to play as on this game. And they are : Frodo the hobbit , Aragorn the ranger , Gandalf the wizard , Legolas the elf , and Eowyn the noble woman. All of the characters on this game look like the characters from two of The Lord Of The Rings movies. That is because this game is based on two of The Lord Of The Rings movie trilogies "The Fellowship Of The Ring" and "The Two Towers" both films directed by Peter Jackson. So this game is not based on two of The Lord Of The Rings books written by the author J.R.R. Tolkien. All you do on this great game is solve puzzles and kill thousands of enemy orcs that block your way on your journey to Mount Doom in the dark land of Mordor to destroy the on ring of power made by an evil dark lord named Sauron. Buy The Lord Of The Rings The Two Towers for the Game Boy Advance. This game has nothing but pure action , and you'll never get tired of it!

If you have played the absolutely godawful Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring for the GBA, then fear not for this Lord of the Rigns GBA game is much, much better. EA's Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers may be a simple hack & slasher (with numerous comparisons to Diablo), but it is a fun one and fans of the books or films will no doubt have a blast with this game. You get to play as Frodo, Gandalf, Aragorn, Legolas, and Eowyn and go through similar looking generic areas while hacking away at monsters, collecting experience points to upgrade armor and weapons, and learning new attacks and techniques. The characters look great and are nicely animated and if you squint they look like their film counterparts, but the backgrounds look so run of the mill generic that you'll get bored with them. Soundwise this is some of the best music to grace the GBA ever, and sounds very similar to the Howard Shore film score. Controls are mindnumbingly simple, but since this is a hack & slasher, some different touches would have been nice to make this game seem a bit more original in the playability department. There are a few problems however, the big one being there is no area map meaning you will get lost and not know where your going quite a bit. All that aside, Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers is a much better than expected GBA title that fans of the Lord of the Rings license or GBA owners craving some Diablo-esque action will enjoy.
