Yet another film based game. The Two Towers is a great game, which helps fans relive the film. You can take control of 3 characters at the start; Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli. Aragorn is equipped with a two handed sword and a bow. Legolas is equipped with two thin swords that have swift movement, and also his famous bow. Gimli goes into combat with an axe, and a number of throwing axes.

All the characters, with their different weapons, have different styles of fighting. Legolas is about swift movement and firing special arrows from far away. Aragorns more about sword combinations, stringing together moves to cut through many enemies at once. Gimli is about brute strength, taking out the largest of foes with a swing. You can only play one of the characters during a level, so there is no switching between skills.

The enemies you face will be familiar from the film. These include orcs, urak-hai and sometimes trolls. When characters kill enemies they will earn experience points, which level them up and enable them to learn more moves. The maximum level for a character is 10, and youíll only achieve that when you get to the last couple of levels, so you canít whizz through the earlier levels with super combos.

The game is pretty basic to play through. Probably one of the more admirable aspects of the game is the transition from gameplay into movie clips, and vice versa. You follow the film story, although in the game you begin on the slopes of Mount Doom as Isildur (once the game is completed, you unlock Isildur for the main game). You also fight on Weathertop, so the game includes parts from ĎThe Fellowship of the Ringí. The later levels do increase in difficulty, but thereís nothing too challenging thatís going to stop you defeating Sauron.

After you complete the main game, you also unlock a mini game, where you fight hordes of monsters in Sarumanís Tower. There are 20 levels to fight through, and when you finally reach Saruman at the top, he teleports out of the tower and leaves you stranded. Nice.

In conclusion, this is a film based game that actually works. A lot of games released alongside their counterpart films are usually terrible, but this is an exception.

Game Rating 6/10
