The Lord of the Rings Aragorn's Quest

Family Friendly Gaming

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 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.

Aragorn's Quest Review: It's Not So Good To Be King

Game Informer
21 September 2010
  • Conclusion: Concept: Chronicle the exploits of Aragorn that weren’t important enough for Tolkien to write about or Jackson to film Graphics: The lighting makes some areas look neat (I especially liked Rivendell), but the character models are nothing special Sound: Sean Austin and John Rhys-Davies reprise their...

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

7 August 2010
  • 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.
