So I did give in to purchasing Lord of the Rings: Return of the King last night. A second hand copy I know, but I really wanted it seeing as it was made by the excellent Stormfront. Seeing as I thoroughly enjoyed their follow up, Forgotten Realms: Demon Stone I thought it would be a good idea to check it out, especially since that linear scripting hack-and-slash type adventure game is currently right up my alley. And I’m not disappointed! Had a quick peek at the game and it was awesome! Tying in with beautiful DVD quality footage lifted right out of Peter Jacksons epic movies, Return of the King is pretty hard to put down. Hacking and slashing seemingly endless hordes of trolls and villains with all the major heroes of the story is completely and utterly a satisfying experience. A rich musical score, great voice acting and a tightly scripted game makes for one heck of a ride.
I cant wait to play this one properly. But first I got to get through the The Matrix: Path of Neo, another enthralling action adventure game thats sucking up all my time.
