Eragon review (X360)
27 December 2006
Excerpt: Even before you take to the air to take part in clumsy dogfights that put you in a continuous loop of see-off-foes-munch-respawning-health-up-see-off-respawned-foes (repeat until your sanity cracks or your thrown pad cracks your TV), young Eragon will need to slog through the basic hack-and-slash meat of the game that offers very little in the way of inventivity or even competence.

The Next Level

Excerpt: Considering that I've never turned more than a combined two dozen pages of all of Tolkien's works, what should've been an enlightenment course has really only convinced me to just stick to the Peter Jackson interpretations. Many scenes there were excised from the film come off as cheesy affairs, halting the game to a standstill, and the game especially hits the pavement with the Tom Bombadil character, who was gracefully thumbed past in the movie.
Excerpt: The nearly 60 year old story of Middle Earth has seen quite a few misses in the video game industry and with the wonderful rendition of the Lord of the Rings Hollywood hit, it was no question that we would be subjected to a few more. Black Label Games is one of the few so privileged to carry this burden. Never heard of them? That's exactly the thought I had when I put Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring into my PS2 CD-tray.
Excerpt: Hvis man ikke kan få licens til filmen, må man jo nøjes med et licens til de originale bøger… men vent… er det ikke bedre at basere sit spil på det originale kildemateriale i stedet for en filmatiseret fortolkning? Jo det skulle man jo tro, men imellem licensen og spil succesen er der lige en detalje, der hedder spildesign og udvikling.
Excerpt: Det officielle GameBoy Advance spil baseret på Tolkiens bøger (altså ikke filmene, som Electronic Arts jo som bekendt ejer rettighederne til). De andre Lord Of The Rings spil fra Black Label Games, til Pc og Xbox, har ikke klaret sig voldsomt godt, så det er spændende at se, om GameBoy Advance versionen har mere at byde på.
