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.
