Golem Crusades

Hooked Gamers
3 May 2011
  • 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.
  • Pros: The game allows gamers to choose their own approach to completing each mission. Controls are simple.
  • Cons: Visually outdated and the gameplay becomes monotonous quite quickly.

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

Vooks
7 November 2010
  • Excerpt: for the Nintendo DS, which I reviewed also – so I had to play it. And (big confession coming up) I’ve never even seen the films in their entirety. I’m not sure why, I just never have.

  • Conclusion: Do you like Lord of the Rings? Do you find it impenetrable and standoffish? Either way, this game is for you. It does a good job of presenting both Zelda-style adventuring and concentrated sandbox gameplay with a Tolkien flavor, combining them into a focused Middle Earth adventure that serves as an excellent Lord of the Rings primer and an expanded highlights reel of the films.

Lighter-toned LOTR has nice co-op gameplay.

  • 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

  • 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 .

The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest

Game Revolution
28 September 2010
  • 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 hideous minions. At least it’s better than doing homework or sitting in a cubicle, right?
  • Pros: Epic battle scenes, Strong AI, Mounted horse combat, Dull and inconsistent storyline, Useless item collecting, Irrelevant characters, Thrown in dialogue
