|In this action game based on 2002's cinematic retelling of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Two Towers, players assume the roles of Aragorn, Legolas, or Gimli as they battle legions of goblins and orcs while using each character's sword, bow, or axe. The third-person title takes place across 16 levels inspired by the first two films in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Stock photos and conceptual drawings from New Line Cinema were used to build 3D maps of the various outdoor and indoor locales. |
Players will revisit the Mines of Moria in a chaotic battle against a Cave Troll, one of the game's five bosses, and eventually confront the corrupted wizard Saruman himself. The development team reportedly analyzed the films frame by frame to study each character's movements so they could be re-created in digital form. Instead of advancing through a series of one-on-one encounters, players will be thrust in combat with enemies coming from all sides and directions. Composer Howard Shore's musical score sets the tone for the epic battles that follow.

Two Towers is a fine asset to all of the Lord of the Rings material and is a great game. Pros: good graphics, landscape is really good and the and variety of maps you get to play on is great ,characters Aragorn, Legolas ,and Gimli all have different strengths and weaknesses for instance, Legolas has more archer upgrades and is a good swordsman but has fewer health upgrades than Gimli the Dwarf who has about double the health upgrades but only one archer upgrade and starts with only 27 throwing axes compared to Legoles's 60 arrows (Aragorn is bit of a mix between the two , the upgades ,cheats,and the unlockable level is fun Cons: only 12 levels make this game go pretty fast ,characters attack upgades are pretty cool but it's realy just each character has the same attack but it just looks different , Overall this is a realy good by the movie game ,I got it for $4.00 plus shipping and liked it alot . LOTR Rule!!!!!!!!!!!
The graphics are awesome - lots of detail, you really get into the mood of Lord of the Rings. But there are many scenes from the motion picture before every new scene comes in and the transition between the movie and the game is not smooth: there is a little delay which becomes a little irritating after a while. But the gameplay is fun. You can choose between three characters: Aragorn, Legolas or Gimli. Definitely an above-average game.
As someone who had only played the sequel (The Return Of The King), I am very disappointed in this game. It is boringly hard: monsters keep jumping out of range of your combos, arrows and hits stun you, you can be hit while stunned and stunned while recovering, etc.
The game camera is sometimes viewing awkward angles (you advance towards the camera rather than having it behind the character), you can't replay a chapter with the same character to "try again", the B button is for 'help' rather than 'back' in menus, etc.
Also, the game is showing its age (but that is to be expected on a 10+ year old Gamecube game).
This game is interesting, as the levels are in depth and they span from the Great War to the end of the Two Towers. It's a really good game, once you get into it. It's a fun hack-and-slash game, without the normal modern violence (well, I'm biased because I like the 'Lord of the Rings'). It's nostalgic for many because it was the first LotR game to come out. It's fun, I promise.
This game is fun and the graphics are great. It's fun playing out scenes from the movie and getting a hand in elimating the enemy. I love the LOR movies and enjoy the interchange between movie scenes and gaming scenes. Found the instruction screnes on controller buttons too short to grasp.
