    I think it actually just came out yesterday, so I dunno. I'm hearing it is a very good game so far though. I think i'll rent it this weekend. I am really interested in it because it follows the movie exactly, and even has a lot of footage from the movie, so if you want to see a good deal of Return of the King before the movie offically comes out, then this is a good game to get. Besides that, who wouldnt want to play out some of those amazing battles from the movie?

    EA Games is making it, they did The Two Towers, and that was real cool aswell, although short. Hopefully Return of the King is much longer.

    EGM had it set for Nov 4 but the new commercials say Nov 6.

    [edit]

    From EGM "the shortest Return level is twice as long as the longest Two Towers level." They gave it really good reviews citing the only problem is that it can be insanely difficult at times. I might just hold off playing it since I don't want too many spoilers before the movie comes out. I remember Two Towers revealing Elves at Helms Deep before I saw it in the movie.

    I thought that the Two Towers was a great game... one of the best ones released last year. However, I'm gonna hold off on picking up ROTK until I see the movie. I don't want to spoil the expierence.

    Ok, I read a review from ign.com and it turns out it doesnt reveal much of the movie. It is a lot more careful this time around in what is revealed, The Two Towers game spoiled it big time. So EA Games was a lot more careful this time in only showing parts of the movie that really don't matter.

    Werd on da streetz iz that ROTK contains no actual spoilers from the movie. That's why they have no problem releasing a month ahead of the movie. :)

    I've played up to Minas Trith on Path of the Wizard and the game frikkin rocks. It's a lot harder than Two Towers, a lot, but also twice as fun. Co-op is a blast until you get to Minas Tirith(which plays like Helms Deep) since you have together on the same screen there are times when someone will get stuck and you have to move back to free them.

    There are some things that I would have rather seen in the movie (omfg The Witch-King) but most of the actual movie footage can be seen in the trailers.

    Yeah, im very very disappointed that they cut that out, Peter Jackson said it would have been to difficult to do, so they got a different ending for him, and it really sucks.
