Ok, you pick up the box and on the cover there are three people. One with a bow and arrow, one with a sword, and the other with an axe. Hm..this doesn't seem violent! DUH! Hello? Lord of the Rings isn't My Little Pony! Of course there's going to be violence. But there is no blood, and no gore. Simply orcs that fall to the ground and never get up. It is a chalenging, and difficult game, even on the easy level. I would reccomend it for teens who have some previous video game skills. Not for 10- and beginners.

This game has a lot of violence, but it's all about fightinh for what you believe in, and that's what makes it worthwhile.

If you let your kids watch the movie, go ahead with his game.

A masterful work, great movie tie-in that does not disappoint.

This is a great game for 11+ year olds!

I really really really liked this game! The graphics are just great, the levels are really fun, and it was just really cool! The only bad thing is that it's a little too short.It's really good, anyway!!!!!!

The Two Towers is the first of the two action games from EA based on the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy. Don't let the title fool you: This actually contains events from both the Fellowship of the Ring and the Two Towers movies. You can play as either Aragorn, Legolas, or Gimli and utilize each of their distinct abilities in the different skirmishes and battles seen in the film. The combat is mostly hack-and-slash, but has probably the most depth I've seen in an action game outside of God of War (and definitely without the appropriateness issues there). The challenge of the game is spot-on; it's not too easy, and it's just hard enough to suck you in and try to beat the missions without the usual frustration of failure. The graphics could use a little more polish, and the action still gets a little repetitive, but still a really good game. The violence is the same as in the movies (though without the "orc blood"). There's no language at all, despite what the adult ratings indicate. A good game for teenagers.
