It's time for another round of Pick One! This week, we're going back in time to the release of the three Lord of the Rings games from the early 2000s, all of which released on the original Xbox!
Did you play them? Which entry was your favourite? Remember, you can only pick one!
Let's take a look at what we're working with:
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2002)
The Fellowship of the Ring is a single-player action-adventure game in which, in a storyline faithful to the first part of JRR Tolkien's epic novel, players relive the experiences of Frodo, Aragorn and Gandalf as they journey from the peaceful lands of the Shire through the darkness of Moria to the River Anduin. On their quest to protect the One Ring from the Dark Lord Sauron, players will explore the massive environments of Middle-earth while solving puzzles and fighting enemies such as Orcs, Black Riders and an evil Balrog.
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002)
EA's first The Lord of the Rings action/adventure game takes players through the roles of the key action heroes from New Line Cinema's epic film trilogy. As Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas, players battle Orcs and memorable movie monsters, with other members of the Fellowship taking a very active role during gameplay. The game features dramatic camera views of the action within fully 3D interactive environments taken straight from the big screen. A visceral, tactical combat system encourages players to be strategic with their selection of characters, weaponry and moves.
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them... The Return of the King video game once again puts the fate of Middle-earth in the hands of the gamer. Mirroring the final instalment of the blockbuster movie trilogy, the game charges players with destroying the One Ring by casting it into Mount Doom and thus freeing Middle-earth from the clutches of the Dark Lord Sauron.
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King allows players to journey through multiple gameplay paths, taking control of the motion picture trilogy's heroes. Defend the walls of Minas Tirith as Gandalf, raise the Army of the Dead as Aragorn, Legolas or Gimli and, with Frodo and Sam, deliver the ring to the fiery depths of Mount Doom.
