Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers lets you experience the intense action of the classic novel & new movie!Dear Peter Jackson and company: Please accept this thank-you for making the last couple of weeks feel like Christmas. Your game The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers is such an unbelievable treat that we've been playing it nonstop. Every person who has seen the spectacular graphics agrees: whereas others may have created a crappy movie tie-in game, you folks have made a game that captivates and frustrates us in all the right ways. It was especially nice of you to let us play as either Aragorn, Gimli, or (our favorite) Legolas. Having the actors--including Sir Ian!--voice all the battle cries really makes a huge difference. The first time we got to unlock one of the video extras (an interview with Elijah Wood), we thought, "This is as much fun as eating candy." We apologize for the rumor that seems to be sweeping game sites--we're not sure how it got started. There's no way to play the game in four hours, unless maybe you set it on "easy," but probably not even then. (We are playing through with all three characters, of course.) Maybe Diablo fans are unimpressed with the skimpy inventory management, but we think that's just nitpicking. But don't think we write fan mail every day! There are some things we would have done differently: while we like movie scenes interspersed with game scenes, we are really tired of watching some of the intro cinematics over and over again. And why can't we trade in some of the skills we bought for new ones? By level 9, we really wished we had bought differently. And what was the deal with the ending--couldn't afford the real actor's voice for the final scene? That seemed distinctly out of character with the rest of the game. But we love being able to tear into a crowd of Orcs, as well as the nuances of certain timed and more strategic missions. While it may not be a game we play repeatedly once we're done, we'll treasure the fond memories of the time we had together. As with everything associated with LotR, the magic touch for fans is in the details. It's great to look into the stream in Fangorn and pick out the reflection of Treebeard; we wish every game got it the way this one does. Thanks again for your terrific title. Best wishes, The Amazon.com Video Game Editors --Jennifer BuckendorffThe Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers action-adventure game will allow players to take control of the trilogy’s action heroes--Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli--with other members of the Fellowship taking an active role during gameplay.
