The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

Overall: A great adaptation and expansion of the motion picture storyline. Advancement in the game unlocks interview clips & photo galleries from the making of the film and game.
I was lucky enough to avoid the $50 retail by going the eBay route & finding an honest seller.

Gameplay: This began as a love/hate relationship. I'm a PC gamer who finally gave in & bought Xbox so I could play this game! Getting used to the controllers took some play... In other words getting killed a lot at first.
After the first two "missions" in which you play Isildur & Aragorn respectively, you then have the choice of playing one of three characters (Aragorn, Gimli & Legolas)for each consecutive mission. Each of these characters gains points for your performance which can use to purchase special attack combinations, health upgrades and stronger ranged weapons.

Graphics: A visual feast! Great detail in environments. A little disappointed in the few items you have to break, like tree trunks, etc. The graphics on this items looked much less impressive.

One other minor gripe: While film clips & gameplay were smooth, the cutscenes often became choppy leaving the sound out of sync and really interrupting a player's emersion in gameplay.

Audio: Yessiree! This is a real treat! Especially if you're lucky enough to have your Xbox hooked up to a surround sound system!
The film actors were contracted to do the voices for this game, so the authenticity follows through and helps to put you into the movie setting!

Suggestions: #1 Armor is only as strong as it's weakest point - please fix the splintering of tree trunks and catapults.

#2 PLEASE say there will be a Return of the King follow-up! :)

Overall Score: 9.0 / 10
