  • 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...

  • Summary: Recapturing the sense of heroic adventure that made the Lord of the Rings films such a huge success is no easy task. But in Aragorn's Quest, Headstrong Games has managed to do just that, crafting a game that feels like a reverent tribute to the source material while managing to be enjoyable on its own.
  • Pros: Charming storytelling device, Locations do a terrific job of evoking the films, New abilities and equipment create a constant sense of growth, Accessible to younger players
  • Cons: Motion-control combat is imprecise and lacks challenge, Some visual weirdness

  • Excerpt: Despite coming out long after the movies have finished up, Lord of the Rings: Aragon's Quest is actually quite appropriate in timing. See how tantalizing the title is in our Preview!

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

Nintendo Blast
18 January 2011
  • Summary: A Busca de Aragorn Pode parecer engraçado que, quando The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, para Nintendo GameCube, foi lançado, este tenha sido fortemente comparado com os filmes de Peter Jackson. Agora, com o lançamento do novo jogo da franquia d’O Senhor dos Anéis, a situação se inverteu. Veja bem, não estou dizendo que Aragorn’s Quest seja uma cópia de Zelda; o ponto é que há certas similaridades entre os jogos que são mais do que bem -vindas.
