Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring for the PlayStation 2 and the Xbox. Unlike other Lord of the Rings video games, this game’s storyline is entirely based on the first Lord of the Rings book.

 

The cast of playable characters in this game are Frodo Baggins (Hobbit)(Weapons: Dagger/Elven Blade-Sting/Stones/Mithril Shirt/The One Ring), Aragorn (Human)(Weapons: LongSword/Sword of Kings-Anduril the Flame of the West) and Gandalf (Wizard)(Weapons: Elven Blade-Glamdring the FoeHammer/Magic-Fire Blast, Chain Lightning and Heal).

 

The protagonists in this game are Samwise “Sam” Gamgee (Hobbit),

Meriadoc “Merry” Brandybuck (Hobbit),

Peregrin “Pippin” Took (Hobbit),

Tom Bombadil,

Glorfindel (Elf),

Lord Elrond (Elf),

Arwen (Elf),

Bilbo Baggins (Hobbit),

Boromir (Human),

Legolas (Elf),

Gimli (Dwarf),

Lord Celeborn (Elf) and Lady Galadriel (Elf).

 

The antagonists in this game are The Nazgul “Ring-Wraiths”,

Old Man Willow (Tree),

Barrow-Wight,

Wargs,

Trolls,

Orcs,

The Watcher in the Water (Sea Monster),

Gollum,

The Balrog of Morgoth “Durin’s Bane”,

Uruk-Hai and the Fell Beasts.

 

In conclusion, I liked how they based this game on its novel counterpart instead of its movie counterpart. It was truly in fact an incredibly, ingenious/imaginative accomplishment on their part as well as an honorably, utmost praise to J. R. R. Tolkien himself.

Image result for lord of the rings the return of the king game

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review the videogame version of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King for the PlayStation 2, Nintendo GameCube and Xbox.

 

In this game, the LotR characters you play as are Gandalf the White (Wizard)(Weapons: Staff/Sword-Glamdring the FoeHammer/Magic),

Aragorn (Human)(Weapon: Sword-Anduril the Flame of the West),

The game’s storyline begins during the Battle of Helm’s Deep with you playing as Gandalf. Afterwards, the game’s storyline splits into three different paths. The 1st path is The Path of the Wizard where you play as Gandalf, the 2nd path is The Path of the King where you play as Aragorn, Legolas & Gimli and the 3rd path is The Path of the Hobbits where you play as Sam and Frodo.

 

The levels in The Path of the Wizard are Isengard where you help the Ents defeat Saruman the White, the Top Wall of Minas Tirith where you aid in Gondor’s defense and Minas Tirith’s Courtyard where you hold the line as you usher civilians to safety.

 

The levels in The Path of the King are The Paths of the Dead which you explore as you seek both the The King of the Dead as well as the Undead Army of Dunharrow, Gondor’s Southern Gate, Pelennor Fields where you aid the Armies of Rohan against the Witch-King of Angmar as well as the Armies of Mordor and Mordor’s Black Gate where you make a final stand against the Dark Forces of Mordor.

 

The levels in The Path of the Hobbit are Osgiliath where you attempt to escape from Faramir and his Ithilian Rangers, Shelob’s Lair where you try to find and rescue Frodo from Shelob the Ungolian Spider, the Fortress of Cirith Ungol where you try to rescue Frodo and Mount Doom where you must both defeat Gollum as well as destroy the One Ring of Doom.

 

In conclusion, I found this game to not only follow it’s movie counterpart in perfect sync, but also make the story concept more action-packed/adventurous/mystically dramatic thus in turn making this a perfect game-related choice “For All Free Peoples”.

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review both Medievil 1 and Medievil II for the PlayStation 1. Medievil 1 was first released on October 21, 1998 and Medievil II was first released on April 30, 2000.

Image result for medievil II

In Medievil 1, The evil sorcerer, Zarok resurfaces in the year 1386 and casts a spell that plunges the entire Kingdom of Gallowmere into an Eternal Night.

Thus, allowing Zarok to steal the souls of the living as well as raise his undead army.

An unintended side-effect of Zarok’s Spell though is that it also revives the heroic champion of Gallowmere, Sir Daniel Fortesque thus allowing him a second chance to finally and successfully defeat Zarok once and for all and finally earn his place as a true hero.

 

Medievil II takes place in Victorian London circa 1886. In this game, An evil warlock named Lord Palethorn rediscovers Zarok’s spellbook and recasts the spell Zarok used to reanimate the dead which as before also revives Sir Daniel Fortesque who must now stop Lord Palethorn from reclaiming the pages from Zarok’s spellbook that went missing.

 

The locations in Medievil II are the Museum, Kensington, Greenwich Observatory, Kew Gardens, Wulfrum Hall, Whitechapel and Cathedral Spires.

 

The cast of characters are Sir Daniel Fortesque (Main Protagonist)(Medievil 1 Weapons: Small Sword/Magic Sword, Throwing Daggers, Crossbow, Longbow/Flaming Longbow/Magic Longbow, Spear, Club, and Axe)(Medievil II Weapons: Small Sword/BroadSword, Flaming Crossbow, Pistol, Bombs, Hammer, Cane Stick and Gatling Gun),

Zarok (Medievil 1’s Main Antagonist/Evil Sorcerer)(Weapon: Magic)

Lord PaleThorn (Medievil 2’s Main Antagonist/Evil Warlock)(Weapon: Magic),

Professor Hamilton Kift (Medievil 2’s Protagonist/Magician, Inventor and Master of the Occult),

Princess Kiya (Medievil 2’s Protagonist/Mummy and Sir Daniel Fortesque’s future love interest),

The Count (Medievil 2’s Antagonist/Vampire)(Location: Wulfrum Hall) and Jack the Ripper (Medievil 2’s Antagonist/Demon)(Location: Whitechapel).

 

In conclusion, I found Medievil 1 & 2 to be one of the best Pulse-Pounding, Heart-Racing, Senses-Shattering and Horror-Themed game series to ever be released.
