The Lord of the Rings Aragorn's Quest

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • 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. One I hope you will learn from. Please avoid this game.

The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn’s Quest Wii Review

Console Obsession
23 November 2010
  • 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 grand battles ahead of plot exposition.

Golem Crusades

Hooked Gamers
21 November 2010
  • 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 bolts. But the controls are simple enough and - for the price - it is worth a look for those looking for something a little different.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent

Hooked Gamers
15 November 2010
  • 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 these days. It pulls you in and keeps you there like you are starring in your own ghost story. I can honestly say that I’ve never been as scared playing a game.

Expert Review

20 October 2010
  • 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. I’m sure there’s plenty of good content there, but it’s probably like getting into Star Wars three decades after it began—there’s too much there, and bits and pieces have been dreadfully mishandled in the...

Lighter-toned LOTR has nice co-op gameplay.

Common Sense Media
15 October 2010
  • Summary: Parents need to know that The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest is a retelling of the same classic story from the Lord of the Rings trilogy, but in a decidely more family-friendly way. While there are plenty of fighting scenes (including a few intense battle scenes with scores of bad guys onscreen), the game as a whole is presented in a lighter, more colorful way than the often dark and disturbing LOTR movies .

One does not simply hack 'n' slash into Mordor! Oh, no, wait. One does. Sorry

GamesRadar
8 October 2010
  • Conclusion: The disappointing challenge aside, Aragorn’s Quest does offer a reasonably handsome romp through the film’s locales. And despite its spotty, breathless retelling, it manages to re-create some of the story’s sense of wonder in the scale of its set-pieces. Nonetheless, the mindless mashing that fills most of the game’s hours means this is far from fit for a king. If you'd like to see more articles from NGamer, you can get a subscription here .
