Excerpt: Some franchises need to stay in retirement. Bringing them out for another go is not always a good idea. Case in point The Lord of the Rings Aragorn’s Quest. I purchased the Wii version so I could write this review. Spending my money on The Lord of the Rings Aragorn’s Quest was a mistake.
Excerpt: For many, the greatest strength of J.R.R Tolkien’s The Lord of The Rings is its rich storytelling of which brings Middle-earth to life, though for some it’s all a bit too long drawn out and boring, but The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn’s Quest is a condensed version of the entire story, focusing on the...
Conclusion: Despite my feeling that Golem Crusades becomes a bit monotonous after just a short time, I still feel the game doesn’t do much wrong. Sure, the visuals and audio need some polishing and some variety in Hasrinaxx’s personal spells would be useful, so that he doesn’t completely rely on his plasma...
Conclusion: Amnesia is different from its peers in that it offers a haunting First-Person survival horror experience without allowing you to have any weapons. The game is pure foreboding terror and plays on such base phobias such as darkness and vulnerability that most survival horrors seem to be forgetting...
Excerpt: HIGH The cutscenes will make you wistful for the superior films. LOW My wrist. Ow... Ow; my wrist. WTF Who is this game for!? Who asked for this game? It wasn't die-hard The Lord of the Rings ( LOTR ) fans; this looks like a kids' game. It wasn't kids, since it's rated "T for Teen.
Pros: The cutscenes will make you wistful for the superior films.
Summary: I’m a bit of a nerd anomaly in that I’ve never really liked The Lord of the Rings. I’ve tried to get through the novels (and movies, zing!) a couple times but the drudgery of the massive aimless battles and nigh-impenetrable continuity minutia put me to sleep.
Summary: Aragorn’s Quest is not for your typical gamer, as they’ll be insulted by lack of difficulty. For players who simply want to take a nice visual stroll through Middle Earth while casually taking out various enemies, this is the way to go.

Excerpt: Sneaky little hobbitses. When you read fantasy novels or watch movies, you immediately live in that world. Let's face it, there’s nothing cooler than being a badass warrior in some mystical land and whose destiny is to be a hero and save the universe from utter destruction by the dark lord and his...
