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.

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.

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.
Pros: Some grand set-pieces, Some surprisingly vast vistas, Decent voice acting
Cons: Cartoony style is bland, Wasted combat system, Lacking challenge
