"Addictive, great game!!!"
4 stars"

Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King is an addictive and brilliant game. Some say that u should get a controller considering it was a port from the consoles. But, for me, i found it a very enjoyable gameplay experience using the keyboard.

There are 15 levels, with the environments being detailed. The soundtrack is excellent, coming from the movies adding to the atmosphere of the fantasy, action packed game, that is the Lord of the Rings, putting you in to the world of middle-earth. The graphics are brilliant, good fighting animations, nice environments and scenery and of course the beautiful character models for many of The Lord of the Rings characters.

You can play as Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, Gandalf, Sam, Frodo and 3 more secret characters that will be unlocked when the game has been completed.

Since there are many characters to play as, it adds a bit of more encouragement to start all over again as another character to save middle-earth.

The game has scenes from the movies and unlockable videos, including interviews of the cast and an amusing clip of Hobbits in Gaming. Fight from the fall of Helms Deep wall to the fires of Mount Doom.

You get to buy upgrades for your characters to improve their strength, spells and combos to progress through the levels with a bit of more grace.

Overall this is definently a good game to buy, considering the excellent price on this site. Definently get this if your a Lord of the Rings fan!
