About Us



In The Lord of the Rings The Return of the King video game your mission is to destroy the One Ring by casting it into the Crack of Doom, which will free the Middle-Earth from the clutches of the Dark Lord Sauron.

The game features seamless movie-to-game transitions and never-before-seen exclusive movie footage from the movie. You can control eight characters including Gandalf, Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, Sam and Frodo. The voice-over is provided by the actual characters from the film, and it includes a musical score composed by Howard Shore. 

Altogether there are twelve interactive environments and there is enhanced control that allows you to make complex multi-directional attacks on the forces of evil. These forces present themselves in the form of Shelob, the Witch King and the Dark Lord Sauron. In addition, there are branching storylines that you can follow, and you can use the cooperative multiplayer mode to team up with a fellow player.

If you canít get enough of the books and the films this presents you with the ultimate opportunity to immerse yourself in the world of The Lord of the Rings as an active participant. I canít resist saying itís Hobbit forming.
