Summary: This game is great as a more family-oriented Lord of the Rings Game, but I wasn't amazed by it, in fact I'd say that it's almost forgettable. With that being said, it does deliver for the LotR fan-base, regardless.
Summary: This actually was a pretty decent game. The motion controls were very responsive compared to most Wii games and were very satisfying to use on enemies. The story was clever and a nice recreation of the movies. Only thing I didnt like was the graphic designs they used on the characters and the game was a bit short.
Summary: It really is a great game, just a little too easy to beat in my opinion. Be careful not to play it too long though because I've had it freeze up the wii, which you can remedy by just disconnecting the wii from its power source. The game is really simple if you just find the seeing stones.
Summary: I absolutely loved this game! It put a whole new spin on the Lord of the Rings story and it made me stand up when I played. It had plenty of depth and action. The more cartoony feel in the graphics made me more comfortable because it wasn't to serious. It had many deminsions and extras. The side quests made the game have more to it so that you didn't feel overwhelmed by the main quests.
Summary: I always like to have a game in progress, even if I don't always find a lot of time to play. I searched Amazon for some inexpensive games and decided to give this game a try, not expecting too much. To my surprise, I finished the game feeling as if I nearly lived through the LOTR trilogy and it makes me want to watch the movies again. There's an open environment, a main quest, and plenty of side quests. There are all kinds of power ups to find and items to buy.
Summary: I've enjoyed this game so far. Decent graphics (for the Wii) and a fairly usable control system. Loosely based on the movie, which is somewhat loosely based on the books, it's pretty good for a casual gamer with a casual interest in Middle Earth. If you're a stickler for Tolkien details and a hardcore RPG'er then this isn't for you (but you probably already knew that, right?) Gripes: The title is overall a bit 'kid-like' but that is pretty much what I expected.
Summary: My daughter (who is 7) and I love the LOTR series. We only have the Wii. We love all the LEGO games. Based on the gamer magazine reviews, I decided to pass on buying this. Due to all the rainy weather we have had recently, I decided to revisit this game and see what Amazon reviewers had to say about this game. It seemed to get good reviews and the price had dropped to $20. After playing the game for about 4 hours now, I have to say I am very happy with Aragorn's Quest.
Summary: Got this because the other reviews said it was fun for the kids. They were right. Even on "Hard" its a little on the easy side. Normal mode is perfect for my 8yr old boy. And its fun to play together. OK graphics Descent game play First little bit is kind of slow and boring. (press "-" to skip the storyline) Could really really use a different play mode like "arena play" where you can just jump into a battle for a few minutes. Overall a fun game and worth buying.
