You can do better... See Lego version
10 February 2014
Summary: Short version: Get Lego LOTR, it's better in every way. Longer version: Pros: Uses a great license, focuses on a great character. That's about it. :( Cons: It really shows that this is a Wii port. You have to use the thumb sticks to move a floating arrow around menus (like a mouse pointer). The graphics are very poor for a PS3 game. The intro mission tells you a lot: You are going to run around and mash the attack button. You can't even jump.
Summary: Mediocre game. I may be biased considering I have been playing modern warfare, call of duty, and battlefield for all of my ps3 life. It kept me entertained for a bit. I only bought because it was cheap. If a young teen needs a video game, I would recommend.
Summary: This game is not designed well. Most people have played 3rd person games where the camera is annoying, cumbersome, and downright unusable; well, bad news is: this game has done away with that hassle, instead there is no way to control the camera, so it shoots around at odd angles and points away from the action about 75% of the time. This game sucks! My 7 year old beat the whole thing in one day!
Summary: well, i always have a soft spot for games like this, look forward to them, and hope, but gaming is merciless. it's incredibly hard to make a really good game. the big budget games are terrified of taking any real chances and are rewarded for taut, balanced, profoundly conservative and very well produced nothingness (er, halo reach comes to mind here, but the lack of courage to tell the lovely story partly buried in the sometimes brilliant red dead redemption fits here,...
Excerpt: When I saw Aragorn's Quest cheap, I had to buy it, being a huge Lord of the Rings fan and from the back of the box it seemed very impressive. However, I could not have been more disappointed. If you are a fan of the films and books then I suggest you avoid this game at all costs! The game is based in Hobbiton and Samwise Gamgee is telling his children about his adventure with Frodo. You start of as Frodo, Sam's son, and have to carry out a series of pointless tasks.
Excerpt: Upon seeing Lord Of The Rings - Aragorns Quest in my local DVD store for just 15 pounds in the pre-owned section I figured this was a good price for a game I had previously rented and enjoyed playing. I was a little unsure whether this game would be up to scratch or if it would be a money-spinning title with not much behind the game other than association by name with the film.
