The game seemlessly intergrates with the movie switching back and forth effortlessly to reflect the situation before and after the battles.
The interviews are interesting as well although Frodo's seemed more contrived than the others. It was a bit of a hoot listening to both Ian McKellen (Gandalf) who I've seen in many movies and John Rhys-Davies (Gimli) who I first saw as Macro in I CLAUDIUS try to relate to video games and working on one when neither one had played one was interesting.
The game itself is a walk through the first two movies with an extra scene or two and several extra explosions.
You play Aragon or Gimli (poor missle but more strength) or Legolas (great arrows weak Hand to hand) Aragon is the middle ground.
If you are a big battle gamer it may seem an ok game the real star of the show is the intergration with the movie. The game really gives the feeling that you are watching the picture and making it happen. That is its strength.
Warning, if you are an old guy like me it will give you sore hands for a bit, but its worth it.
