Sting Upcoming RotK Video Game...

Ive been a fan of the LotR games since they came out last night. I bought TTT on ps2 and enjoyed it alot. I expect that RotK will be as good or even better.

For those of you who have played this game and are waiting for the RotK to be released, lemme know some of your opionions for the upcoming game(questions, comments,concerns etc.).

I can't wait for the RotK game! I wanna play as Gandalf and Frodo, just to add another twist to the game. But what I really want is the cooperative play. Sounds sweet! Can't wait!

Yeah i was glad they added alot of new things to it and not just keeping it the same game just with new levels. The multiplayer will be sweet too. Im hopin to play as Sam because after watching the movies i think he would have been better off with the ring(this brings up a whole new topic that Im going to post lol). Yeah they even improved the graphics which is cool.

At Comic-Con which I attended this last July, EA games had a booth where you could test out a part of the ROTK game. It looks really cool! The graphics have been greatly improved (especially the graphics of the charaters), but it also looks to be much more difficult.

I am also happy that they have the new multiplayer feature. Because now both my sister and I can play at the same time.

I can't wait, it will be so great [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Well, I loved the Two Towers game. I didn't like the first one too much, it kind of left the story line of the movie. But I can't wait for the Return of the Kings game to come out, it will be the bomb.

Question

The Two Towers Game was ok. It wasnt really challenging as a game and didnt have many levels although the whole Tower of Orthanc was interesting. I really hope that The Return Of The King is better, it looks a lot better and it should be intriguing to play with Gandalf and Frodo. I look forward to it.

The Multiplayer addition will make the game much better than the Two Towers. I've already beaten it. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
I think it will be fun to play as gollum.
I also think that it will be fun to be able to interact with the scenery. That will be awesome. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Yeah, I was so pumped up when I got TTT, but I nearly beat it in a little under an hour of play. And I'm glad the character's graphics are better. Legolas' face was screwed up in TTT. Looks like someone took a roller and flattened out, and then he was beat with an ugly stick. His body looked great, but his face was messed up. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Npill where do you live? The TT game was out a long time ago (late 2002) in America.

I think the Additions in RotK will be cool, but i dont think they will make the game worth getting. I rented TTT because it was too short and too repitive to make it worth buying. Maybe they will change some of this in RotK.

I cannot wait for the ROTK video game comes out on PS2, I have seen the preview of it on the TTT DVD and it looks awesome!

i loved TTT game a lot for PS2 and i do think the return of the king is going to be better. i heard u can play as frodo, sam, gandalf, aragorn, legolas, and gimli, and ur bosses are shelob, king of the dead, and and the with king, but that's all i know. there's a rumor that there's supposed to be 2 other playable characters but u can't play as gollum. That's sucks.

the TT game was awesome, and I'm looking forward for the ROTK game. I'm getting a PL2 soon, so that'll work.

I definitaly looking forawrd to the game. The thing i didnt like about TTT was the fact it seemed to short, but, RotKs shortest level is meant to be 3 times as long as the longest level in TTT. Also im looking forward to the multiplayer option.

For anyone not sure whether or not to purchase the new game, just read this month's edition of Electronic Gaming Monthly. The new issue not only has a poster inside, but also three separate write-ups on the new game as well as notes on how the other Tolkien games are progressing. Sadly though, it says that the Isengard game was scrapped - but hooray for the up and coming Hobbit game! I read the magazine yesterday and I'm still salivating over awesomeness this new game should bring.

November 4th! I can't wait! Only about 10 more days! I think the RotK game will be great. EA Games is a pretty good company, so we are in good hands [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]. I'm really looking forward to it!

Hold on a minute according to amazon.com, the game comes out on November 6th. So when does it come out the 4th or the 6th?

The poster hanging up in my room has November 4th on it. The sixth may be the first day that Amazon can actively distribute the game themselves. I would imagine that it would take a bit longer for a company like Amazon to get all of their ducks in a row for distribution.

Well, who has the ROTK game? and what do you think about it? My sister and I just got ours yesterday and it is so cool! I love the multiplayer feature, because TTT game was sometimes rather boring because you couldn't play together at the same time. I like the more sopisticated graphics, and additionally the game is a tad bit harder (well at least for the novice gamer), overall I am very pleased with the game.

Got the RotK game (for pc) recently but found out that my PC didn't fulfill certain requirements to run the game. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img] Have played 'the Hobbit', FotR and War of the Ring(WotR) games though and found the to be enjoyable. WotR is much like Warcraft sound it was easy for me to adjust to the game and the graphic was nice. Bilbo Baggins in the Hobbit game soooo cute. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

aleesa, are you talking about The Hobbit game that is out for computers? That's the one my brother got for Christmas, and you're right! Bilbo is adorable! And his voice is perfect. We're on the "swordglow" level or something like that.

Anyway. I've rented the RotK game twice already, because I love it so much. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] Finally, a game where gaining levels is actually fun! I've beaten it already, but I enjoy going back and gaining levels and practicing combos.

The 2-player aspect is great. My brother and I play together, which is immensely fun. I'm usually Gandalf and Legolas, who are my best characters. My brother is Gimli.

I recommend this game! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Yup, you're right DarkRose. I'm still in the middle of "the Hobbit" but my brother has already finished it. I just love the graphics of each of the animation before the start of a new level.
I'm still not able to play the RotK game. My brother is so frustrated too since he was also looking forward to playing it. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]
