Designing Games has its perks. As The Two Towers – the second feature in The Lord of the Rings trilogy – hits the theaters, the game makers at Electronic Arts are already reviewing footage from The Return of the King. “We just saw a flyby of Minas Tirith,” boast exec producer Neil Young, referring to the seven-tiered citadel from King and its video game counterpart, due late in 2003. This time, you’ll play not only as Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas (as in The Two Towers) but also as hobbit heroes Frodo and Sam. In 2004, plans call for an epic game spanning the entire trilogy. “Imagine a Lord of the Rings game that’s everything you want it to be,” teases Young. Um, may we suggest an interactive Liv Tyler? – Geoff Keighley (Entertainment Weekly)
