The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

The hack'n'slash "The Return of the King" is one of my personal "Lord of the Rings" -Favoriten. Hardly any other game brings Peter Jacksons vision of Middle-earth universe so impressively to life like this. With Gandalf, Legolas, Gimli and Aragorn orcs, ghosts and Uruk-hai to beat up, while in the background lacks the driving music of composer Howard Shore, well, that may correspond to credit history not quite the spirit of the "Lord of the Rings", but it is fucking epic. Unless you die just for the twentieth time in this accursed passage at the Black Gate - ARGH!

By the way, there was "The Return of the King" original scenes from the third movie and although the game has appeared before theatrical release in. So thank you to this point again for the huge spoiler at a resolution of 480p rich!

The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age

A mix of the classic round struggles of Japanese role-playing and the Tolkien mythology does not work actually, somehow, the developers of EA Redwood Shores but still managed. "The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age" is something of an insider tip among the "Lord of the Rings" games. Although the story told only from side scenes and goes more in the direction "Oh, look there, Boromir, Frodo, Aragorn and the others! The experience designed just epic adventure! Man, that has to be with those exciting! But anyway, back to my fetch quests, "but the RPG gameplay fundamentals could score.

The comparison to "Final Fantasy X" suggests itself, essentially the fighting work here that is just as - and this is awesome because it has just worked out perfectly even with the competition from Square Enix. Today we know the developer of "Into the Fire" and "The Return of the King" by the way as Visceral Games &# 8211; jepp that &Dead Space creators; # 8220&# 8221; then pottered on "Lord of the Rings" games.

The Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth

Strategy games, the audio cassettes of the video game industry're just going to be, hardly anyone remembers these things, but everyone knows that was totally great and important time. And my goodness, was "The Battle for Middle-earth" a hit! Personally, I can do much later the RTS only, so I can think only about how fans of the fantasy series this game back then must have loved. The presentation itself holds today's ideas still standing, the mission design was wonderful adjusted to the events in the movies and multiplayer there was also on top of it.

At this point, again the wonderful second part should be mentioned transfers its add-on one of the longest name in the entire video game history, "The Lord of the Rings. The Battle for Middle-Earth - Rise of the Witch King"
