Return of the King is further proof that with some real effort on the part of the developer, movie-based video games can really be quite entertaining. This is a hack-and-slash (similar to, though more in-depth than Dynasty Warriors, for those of you familiar with that game). Like most in the genre, it gets a little repetitive after a while, though certainly still bearable. Like I said, there's more depth here than typically found (though dissapointingly less than the Two Towers game) with meaningful combos and intuitive controls. The only game issue I have is the fact that the difficulty level tends to flip-flop a lot. Sometimes it's really easy, and sometimes it can get maddeningly frustrating. Approrpiateness-wise, there's a good amount of medieval swordplay violence, a little less worse than that found in the movies, so if you've seen those and are okay with it, you'll be fine here. Nothing else otherwise.
