lotr ev - which region


Standard Member
I read all the information about the the problems with the sound quality on the original verion of this disc.
I borrowed a copy and found that the region 2 version was indeed imho not the best sound I had heard.
Decided to wait till the extended version came out to buy and now's the time.
Does the region 2 disc have the same problems as the original and therefore should i go for the region 1?

This has been discussed many times...

Region One has better packaging, slightly more extras, & uncut extras. Is also cheaper (£21 @ cd-wow).

I havn't seen the region two version, but have not heard of any differences (other than normal region 1/2 differences).

R1 also has the original burnt in subtitles for the elvish talk.

R2 has player-generated subtitles :rolleyes:

Note sure about the EE, but with the original, the R2 version had better PQ, confirmed by Bjoern.
