Hello there!

I thought not. It’s not a story the Jedi would tell you.

[–]norsurfit 55 points56 points  (3 children)

Not all who wander are lost

[–]afroman89595 2042 points2043 points  (160 children)

This game was awesome!! There was one level in particular that had what seemed to be a never ending flow of orcs in front of a castle and when u got on top of the castle u could dump flaming tar or something onto them down below. I would play this lvl over and over just clearing all enemies off the map. Basically just mashing square endlessly! So much fun

Edit: I feel like I fed everyone who commented member berries. Crackin me up

[–]Vlisa 585 points586 points  (25 children)

IIRC it was Aragorn/Legolas/Gimli arriving at Pelennor fields. You had to open the gates/kill the trebuchets.

[–]silversleuther 311 points312 points  (14 children)

You could actually kill all the orcs too. You just had to not die and have a lot of patience haha

[–]NappingBear 218 points219 points  (10 children)

I distinctly remember completely clearing out all of the orcs on that map at least three times, once with my brother and the other two solo.

[–]westzeta 35 points36 points  (0 children)

There was a level before Minas Tirith where you could clear everyone as well. Very satisfying.

[–]fuck_you_and_fuck_U2 30 points31 points  (0 children)

I think he's referring to The Southern Gate, the level before Pelennor Fields. source: I also played this level over and over.

[–]TheMcBrizzle 50 points51 points  (1 child)

That's pretty impressive, considering you'd have to dodge 90 kg stones being thrown from 300 meters away.

[–]Gregger90 122 points123 points  (27 children)

I would just use Legolas with all his upgrades and pump out arrows. He had unlimited arrows so I just spammed arrows. They did so much damage. He was OP.

[–]Kaos1382 116 points117 points  (12 children)

Purple arrows OP af. Shooting 3 at a time.

[–]neverfindausername 49 points50 points  (10 children)

Two at a time I think. But they'd fly through orcs while setting them on fire! So OP for the Black Gate level since they all ran up in line

[–]Beenhamine 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Me and my buddy would always rush for legolas so we could do that and get the higher score. Perfect mode +arrow spam = massive points.

Gandalf could almost compete with his laser beams but not quite.

[–]hydroskunkfo20 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Don't forget Gandalf's indestructible death ball! I think it was L1 L2 R1 R2 at the same time and you could literally run through a ton of orcs and kill them with ease lol

[–]Huwbacca 234 points235 points  (4 children)

instakilling trolls with the javelins.

[–]Iviglio 278 points279 points  (13 children)

Square-square-triangle, special glowing bonus effect because I just hit like 10 at once, square-square-triangle...

[–]Cfw412 150 points151 points  (10 children)

Square-R2 for the block and finishing move was diiirty

[–]mnblackfyre410 127 points128 points  (7 children)

Orc bane.

I liked the move, with Aragorn at least, where you shoulder into a guy and as he's falling down you pull out your dagger and stab the living fuck out of him.

[–]Chimpsanddip 28 points29 points  (6 children)

Gimli's orc bane was great as well, sweep the legs then it's just like chopping wood.

[–]mnblackfyre410 10 points11 points  (3 children)

Is that where he twirls the axe around a bunch? That one's great as well

[–]Britwill 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Gandalf's human bane was brutal - freeze them in place with your staff, lift them slowly up into the air and then run them through!

Gandalf wasn't fucking around.

[–]GoddessDead 32 points33 points  (0 children)

Holy nostalgia

[–]deorwyn 97 points98 points  (0 children)

Pelennor Southern Gate. Best level of the game.

[–]Ness_tech 35 points36 points  (15 children)

Was it the level where it starts off showing Gandalfs hand resting on the castle?? I remember seeing that shit 100 times.

[–]__secter_ 54 points55 points  (9 children)

That was Minas Tirith - Top Of The Wall. OP's talking about The Southern Gate later on.

Best thing with Top Of The Wall was playing as Pippin for the continuity lulz after Gandalf got so leveled up it became too easy.

[–]Ness_tech 36 points37 points  (8 children)

Top of the wall was the most trouble I had on any level then because I remember seeing that cutscene over and over after dying. You remember the game pretty well, was The Southern Gate harder than Minas Tirith?

[–]TheSexyShaman 60 points61 points  (6 children)

Fuck no. Southern gate was pretty easy, and extremely fun. Minas Tirith top of the wall was one of the most difficult levels in the game. I can remember just barely shooting down one siege tower just to have another appear on the other side of the map. I hated that level with the fiery passion of 47281649.8 suns.

[–]TymedOut 15 points16 points  (4 children)

Remember running down through the streets of Minas Tirith to the courtyard after beating that level to defend the gate? That level was also annoying but once you figured out that the fire javelins one-shot the trolls it was so much fun.

[–]TheSexyShaman 14 points15 points  (0 children)

The courtyard was one of my favorites. When you had to fight the three trolls at once. So intense

[–]Icegyrfalcon 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Sounds like Southern Gate, maybe. Did you fight a mumak near the end and strike it repeatedly?

[–]MalleDigga 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Same here (-: what a mess.. imagine if the bodies would not despawn

[–][deleted] 409 points410 points  (38 children)

Even The Two Towers was dope as fuck.

I did NOT enjoy playing the fellowship of the god damn ring though.

[–]jtdemaw 90 points91 points  (6 children)

I was pretty young but it took me ages to even get out of the shire when the Nazgul was pursuing you

[–]bolderandbrasher 19 points20 points  (0 children)

That part scared me when I was younger.

[–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (2 children)


[–]radcake71 82 points83 points  (8 children)

That game was the worst. I don't think I ever got out of the Old Forest.

[–]yunivor 39 points40 points  (4 children)

I remember getting lost in Moria.

[–]Bozzz1 28 points29 points  (1 child)

Oh that's easy! You just have to take the path that smells less foul

[–]peteroh9 5 points6 points  (0 children)

On my GBA copy of the game, I literally could not get out of Moria. There was a door that wouldn't open -_-

[–]RedHeadRedemption93 67 points68 points  (5 children)

Anyone remember The Hobbit game? Was actually pretty fun even though it was so childish.

[–]SceneryExplorer 21 points22 points  (0 children)

I love that game! Especially the Smaug level.

[–]Kakuflux 10 points11 points  (0 children)

The absolute best thing about The Hobbit game was its original soundtrack which some hero has uploaded to YouTube.

It's 14 years old and I still go back to listen to it every 6 months or so. It wouldn't sound out of place being the soundtrack for an epic fantasy movie... which is funny considering how quaint and caricaturish the game was.

[–]juicewilson 6 points7 points  (1 child)

It had nothing to do with the other 2 games. It was a separate release before the movies even came out, but yeah, that game was a fucking nightmare

[–]iamjason10 232 points233 points  (8 children)

Throwing spears in this game was so satisfying

[–]MalleDigga 27 points28 points  (0 children)


[–]Ninja_Wizard_69 28 points29 points  (3 children)

Plus you could pick them up off the ground after you threw them!

[–]harrywilko 4 points5 points  (1 child)


[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Sometimes, not all the time.

[–]Novouto 2813 points2814 points  (348 children)

This game was pretty good tbh.

[–]Thrikal 545 points546 points  (122 children)

One of the few "Video Game Based On a Movie" that turned out really good.

[–]ImMichaelScott 453 points454 points  (105 children)

Also Spiderman 2 for the PS2. That game had it all.

[–]pchadrow 258 points259 points  (43 children)

Spiderman 2 is the reason I can't play any other spiderman games. The web slinging locomotion in that game was just perfect. I've yet to see another spiderman game get even remotely close to that satisfying feel of swinging through new york

[–]Lampmonster1 170 points171 points  (7 children)

I used to come home drunk and just swing all over the city forever.

[–]Loverboy_91 81 points82 points  (3 children)

Jeez Pete don't you think that's a little dangerous?

[–]Kinginthe4th 44 points45 points  (0 children)

I would spend hours just swinging around the city not accomplishing anything.

[–]necrotic_terror 80 points81 points  (31 children)

Fuck yeah, I thought the King Kong game based on the Peter Jackson movie was fantastic too, these 3 are pretty much the trifecta of movie - game adaptations for me.

[–]doorknobopener 61 points62 points  (4 children)

The Warriors deserves a spot up there

[–]necrotic_terror 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Wow I can't believe I managed to forget that one, you are absolutely correct.

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Warriors is by far the best movie game ever made in my opinion

[–]junkit33 25 points26 points  (5 children)

There's been a lot more good movie-based games than people give credit for. There's just so many bad ones that it skews the perception.

Others: Goldeneye, Chronicles of Riddick for Xbox, Aladdin, Lion King...

[–]GroovyFrute 23 points24 points  (9 children)

Someone's forgetting about the Prisoner of Azkaban game...

[–]Thrikal 22 points23 points  (6 children)

I have only heard of the Legend that is Spiderman 2. I never played it, but I only heard great things. It still holds up as the best Web-Slinging Spiderman game, right?

[–]ImMichaelScott 11 points12 points  (0 children)

It definitely set the gold standard for a Spiderman game which has not been matched since.

[–]acyberexile 27 points28 points  (0 children)

not just that. it's also the best superhero game ever.

(after the arkhams, ofc)

[–][deleted] 20 points21 points  (13 children)

Even cheat codes to play as the green goblin!

[–]ImMichaelScott 28 points29 points  (3 children)

Losing a memory card didn't even matter either. Cuz all I had to do was get beyond the opening bit and then could spend hours swinging around NYC.

[–]helkar 11 points12 points  (2 children)

I remember thinking that map was absolutely massive. I would love to go back and play it now to see how it holds up.

[–]fullyjamb 7 points8 points  (1 child)

You'll probably be disappointed, I thought the GTA Vice City map was massive. It's really not

[–]Jowsten 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Negative. That was the first spiderman game of that series.

[–]Comrade__Questions 687 points688 points  (179 children)

I never played this, but I loved the Two Towers one. Was it basically the same format?

[–]Lokmann 538 points539 points  (151 children)

Basically the same but more fleshed out. If you have access to a PS2 I would suggest picking it up. I might actually go dust my ps2 off and give it a go.

Edit to add: The game is apparently on pretty much any console/computer of that generation.

[–]IZZILY2g 213 points214 points  (123 children)

Wasn't it also released on PC?

[–]TheMemoman 407 points408 points  (4 children)

Yes! My brother and I grew together as men, forged unbreakable in the battlefields of middle Earth.

[–]KYL0C0 21 points22 points  (0 children)

"I'll squash your children!" - Sam

That was a line that my brother and I will ALWAYS laugh at.

[–]ImWhatTheySayDeaf 60 points61 points  (1 child)

[–]RedS5 6 points7 points  (0 children)

You were always nice to me

[–]dyedFeather 77 points78 points  (88 children)

Yeah, I own it on PC.

[–]theredvip3r 40 points41 points  (82 children)

Seriously? Where can i get it?

[–]dyedFeather 49 points50 points  (0 children)

I guess your best bet is trying to find a secondhand copy online and have it shipped to you. I don't know if it's available digitally.

[–]PixelOrange 29 points30 points  (67 children)

Have you tried gog?

[–]gm06 50 points51 points  (28 children)

Can confirm that it is not available on GOG.com :(

[–]piggybits 43 points44 points  (26 children)

If you've got a decent enough computer you can download the ps2 emulator pcsx2

[–]nastynate66 15 points16 points  (5 children)

You can also try a GameCube emulator if that one doesn't work for you.

[–][deleted] 21 points22 points  (12 children)

Just to clarify for people with lower end pcs it can be a nightmare. I downloaded it with Battlefront 2 on my old laptop and it was so laggy it was impossible to play.

I wish I could remember the specs - but Dora 2 used to have 50+ fps and CS GO with 40+ fps on the lowest possible graphics - so you can use that for a benchmark.

[–]scinfeced2wolf 42 points43 points  (1 child)

And GameCube.

[–]mistermeh 38 points39 points  (0 children)

And my Axe!

[–]MadLimabean 15 points16 points  (3 children)

And Xbox

[–]BYUtka 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I am pretty sure I have a copy on Game Cube. I think it was an "Every system" release.

[–]Smoiky 38 points39 points  (3 children)

I had it on gamecube, so... If you have Access to a gamecube or a wii, i would suggest picking it up.

[–]cepxico 16 points17 points  (1 child)

2 games I wouldn't mind seeing in the PS2 classics list on PS4.

[–]acyberexile 7 points8 points  (0 children)

same here, but it's virtually impossible because of licensing.

[–]lphistt1721 47 points48 points  (5 children)

The two towers game was amazing. I still think back to the helms deep level today. That and the fellowship of the ring game, all so great

[–]reapy54 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Where is the horse and the rider...

Heard that cinematic way, way too many times trying to beat that level.

[–]AboutThatTime420 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Same! I always hear about ROTK but I only ever played (and still play) the two towers

[–]Incorections 86 points87 points  (16 children)

i loved it, i preferred to battlefront. Just more into melee and medieval fantasy than sci fi and shooters.

[–]TheLonelyWolfkin[🍰] 68 points69 points  (8 children)

Sounds like LoTR: Conquest.

RoTK was da bomb.

[–]Grundlestiltskin_ 67 points68 points  (5 children)

LOTR:Conquest had so much promise. I had dreamed of a game like that as a 12 yr old kid. Basically a cross of this ROTK game and Battlefront 2. And it never lived up to the hype :(

[–]LordCharco_iii 50 points51 points  (3 children)

It was fine for what it was. But there could've been so much more, like, I don't know, playing as Sauron and destroying the Shire oh wait

[–]Grundlestiltskin_ 17 points18 points  (1 child)

honestly, I couldn't stand the block/parry mechanism. The scouts and warriors could pretty much endlessly block and there was no way to break through it without using the fire/power attack. And being an archer was just super boring as was the mage class.

[–]TheLostBeowulf 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I loved it as a teenager, I'll always remember a game assaulting Minas Tirith as Mordor and I hopped into a troll and went something like 68-2, the trick was to just spin in circles and throw enemies at archers.

I really do hope for a good Non EA company to pick up LOTR again, it deserves it

[–]RegalGoat 12 points13 points  (1 child)

That game was both simultaneously very bad and very good. But hey, it was fun and I kept coming back to it, so on balance it was great.

[–]Phlerg 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Thank you for being honest.

[–]joshualorber 15 points16 points  (9 children)

I remember not being able to get past the first couple of levels in this game, still loved it though

[–]fader402 435 points436 points  (19 children)

My brothers and I would play this game for hours.

[–]rapcheck18 330 points331 points  (15 children)

Co-op was so much more fun than single player

[–]Iviglio 120 points121 points  (6 children)

Especially when you took Frodo and Sam's journey. I swear, the first or second level at Osgillioth where there's an orc guarding the gate was impossible if you were trying to solo.

[–]necrosteve028 73 points74 points  (3 children)

That's where you are meant to abuse your poison dagger throw or your cloak ability

[–]some_cool_guy 29 points30 points  (1 child)

It's amazing how well I remember this

[–]Siriacus 49 points50 points  (4 children)

Southern Gate Legolas + Aragon


[–]N22-J 26 points27 points  (3 children)

I played Gimli because I love dwarves in all fantasy settings. Then realized he was trash and had to pick aragorn because my brother always took Legolas.

[–]danielcube 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I play this with my brother as well. He play Legolas and me Gandalf. I use my magic power while he uses arrows on everyone.

[–]Triggerz777 210 points211 points  (30 children)

I'm so happy we have shadow of murder and it's sequel coming. For a while lotr games weren't that great. This one was awesome though

[–]virginia_hamilton 171 points172 points  (5 children)

Excellent typo.

[–]fatrefrigerator 30 points31 points  (2 children)

It probably wasn't a typo. It's like Dishonored and Assassin's Creed had child and you're more powerful than both combined.

[–]virginia_hamilton 14 points15 points  (1 child)

I never thought I could get bored murdering uruks...And I haven't.

[–]Jelly_F_ish 39 points40 points  (6 children)

Hopefully the ending of the sequel is not as lackluster.

[–]Reallifelivin 50 points51 points  (3 children)

Yeah shadow of mordor really lost its stride at the end. It was kind of fun being super overpowered, but it also trivialized every encounter. And it really could have used an actual boss fight at the end, but just hiding and sneak attacking some clones.

[–]Raehtik 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Tell me about it! They REALLY shit the bed on the ending. You train up an army of warchiefs (some of them who were your personal nemesis turned ally, vegeta mode) and what do you get at the end if the game? Like 4 of them and some QTEs.

[–]specter491 20 points21 points  (3 children)

Besides murdering the canon lore, it's pretty good

Are you threatening me master Jedi?

[–]KrishaCZ 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Another LOTR game, Battle For Middle Earth came out in 2004!

[–]Jerky_Mittens 33 points34 points  (1 child)

This game ruined the "A" button on my GameCube controller....worth it

[–]YolandiVissarsBF 29 points30 points  (6 children)

Man, I avoided this game because it got a bad review in one of my gaming magazines (main complaint was how hard the game was).

I see this game mentioned here and think I missed out.

[–]TheSexyShaman 28 points29 points  (2 children)

It was hard. There was not a single level in that game that I beat my first time through (except the prologue). My brother and I would take turns trying to beat the levels and we would celebrate wildly when we finally got through one.

[–]Graffiti_Soul 298 points299 points  (57 children)

I never played this one but I see it all the time. I was always playing LOTR: The third age. Anybody else play that one?

[–]albi-_- 71 points72 points  (11 children)

Still playing it to this day on emulator. I became so obsessed with getting Shield of Courage on berethor before Osgiliath that I now have it before finishing West moria... I'm grinding too much i think

[–]SneakyLilShit 26 points27 points  (4 children)

Can I ask which emulator you use?

[–]BigBearMedic 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Jesus you think lol how long did that take you?!

[–]bardnotbrad 22 points23 points  (5 children)

I could never get passed helms deep, there was one battle where I wasn't a high enough level and the place I was locked me in, I must have spent a year trying to beat that same freaking battle

[–]StarBoy1701 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Helms Deep was honestly one of the hardest parts of the game. On the deeping wall you'd be hit by wave after wave AFTER WAVE of Uruks

[–]Postius 38 points39 points  (3 children)

LOTR: The third age

Yeah but the game was really weird. Somewhere around the 40%-60% mark my party became wicked overpowered. My cloneagorn was basicly goku mixed with aragorn and gimli and he brought his even stronger magical friends with him.

Still the game was great fun

[–]OhPieFlavour 19 points20 points  (2 children)

Upvoted at clonagorn.

[–]i-Am-R3ddit 50 points51 points  (0 children)

Yes, loved that game. I miss it

[–]BaritoneSaxophone 8 points9 points  (2 children)

I played a version of the Third Age on the GBA, it was a top down turn based strategy with some pretty cool mechanics.

[–]Sensitivevirmin 13 points14 points  (10 children)

The game was bugged for me i could never get the Gondor second age Shield. Every other item in the game I had But that one. Still bugs me to this day

[–]Grundlestiltskin_ 9 points10 points  (3 children)

I got stuck on some level in Moria fighting some goblin shaman that kept healing himself and it was an endless battle. Gave up after that. I did like the open world aspect though.

[–]McMaxwell 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I had this exact same problem, until I realised I had been neglecting Idrial's spirit powers... just endlessly casting Aura/Power of the Valar and Haste of the Elves was my tactic throughout the game

[–]fuckhead69 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Both games were fucking awesome.

[–]CHRisMe777 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I remember being stuck on the Balrog fight when I was 9 years old or so, then bringing a friend over and kicking his (the balrog's!) ass.

Even replayed it recently, but through an emulator.

[–]Scratch1993 25 points26 points  (8 children)

Recently have been going through a LotR kick and downloaded RotK, TTT, and The Third Age on the Dolphin emulator. Great games but they can be hard as fuck.

[–]Postius 8 points9 points  (3 children)

third age is hard as fuck around half way. Than suddenly you are OP as fuck.

[–]vivi9090 26 points27 points  (3 children)

One of the few games that did coop mode properly

[–]lolwhat_123 23 points24 points  (0 children)

I got scared and quit when I had to run through the cave with the giant spiders as Sam to save Frodo.

[–]kyole5 21 points22 points  (3 children)

Fuck the mammoth level where you had to blindly throw the spear off a mini cliff.

[–]BurritoW4rrior 63 points64 points  (8 children)

Absolute legendary game.

LoTR: Conquest is also pretty good!

[–]OMG_I_just_shat 127 points128 points  (25 children)

Raise your hand if you leveled up Legolas first, then Gandalf.

Then Aragorn. Then Faramir.

Then maybe Gimli if you were feeling bold.

...then Frodo, Sam...Merry, Pippin for those truly committed.

[–]oatzeel 30 points31 points  (0 children)


[–]OhBestThing 27 points28 points  (5 children)

Gandalf was a wrecking ball in that game when powered up

[–]Master_of_Space 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Those staff energy blasts bruh

[–]roodypoo29 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Legolas with those purple-hued arrows that pierced enemies was the way to go. Felt like cheating in the later levels

[–]joelswoll 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Hand raised for faramir

[–]harrywilko 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Yes! He was the shit! Was functionally identical to Aragorn but had a better bow.

[–]JonnyBhoy 12 points13 points  (1 child)

A levelled up Hobbit was a really fun play through. The invisibility cloak on Frodo and Sam in particular was OP as fuck.

[–]TheSexyShaman 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Legolas and Gandalf first for sure. Both their ranged attacks were so busted. Legolas kills two at a time. And Gandalf could kill a fucking balrog with one fully charged shot.

[–]Wolvowl 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Me and my Dad loved playing this game. My favorite level for us to play was the the gate one where the enemies where near endless. He would play as Gimli and I as Legolas amd would have a running talley against each other. And whenever I whipped out my bow and took down the troll he would do his Gimli voice "It still only counts as one."

Fun times.

[–]Safcfan1 26 points27 points  (14 children)

This, Battlefront 2, Destroy All Humans & Mercenaries were all that were needed to keep me busy as a kid.

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (9 children)

If there was ever a reboot, I would hope for mercenaries. That game was the cause of my first erection.

The Black Gate was so fucking difficult

I was 12 when this game came out and I remember helping my door stairs neighbor move some boxes and I saw this on pause in his living room. Intrigued, I asked to play. Over the next month, I was at his house playing this game non stop.

Not many button mashers give you not only good lure, but good RPG elements to make your characters unique like this game did. Personally, I like this game better than SoM.

When I was a kid my mum made my older brother let me play with him. He would tell me to stand in the corner and tap x (the parry button, effectively meaning I was useless but at least I didn't die and throw the mission).

I had that game when I was younger. I never managed to finish it, though
