The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers is a video game by Electronic Arts based on Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings, taking scenes from The Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers. As the name The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring was already used by Vivendi, it could not publish a game about the first movie, and had to incorporate scenes of both into one game.

The title was one of the top selling console titles of 2002 and 2003, and was widely praised for its seamless transitions from actual film footage to interactive game play.

Synopsis

The game allows players to play Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas and Isildur (unlocked some time after beating the game), in a series of missions, many taken directly from either Peter Jackson's The Fellowship of the Ring (such as Weathertop) or Peter Jackson's The Two Towers (Amon Hen, Helm's Deep). Other missions, such as Fangorn Forest, are original pieces within the films' setting.
