Players relive the experiences of Frodo, Aragorn and Gandalf as they journey from the peaceful lands of the Shire through the darkness of Moria to the River Anduin.

  • Excerpt: Shortly after the film was released, word was that games were already in production from Vivendi Universal in anticipation of all the cinematic hype. They chose, however, to base their license on the book and I remember reading various interviews about how the developers painstakingly tried to translate the words of Tolkien into a splendid looking story-heavy title. The novel, being intricately detailed, was simple and easy for this task.

  • Excerpt: The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (FOTR) is an adventure game based on Tolkein's book of the same name.  While this means that the characters and locations won't resemble those in the excellent film adaptation of the book, it also means that the game's designers have the freedom to include far more of the story than was possible in the film.

Game Over Online
2 December 2002
  • Excerpt: The first component of Fellowship is where you assume the role of Frodo. Like in the film, you'll try to escape from the shire but not without performing some side quests and errands before you're able to actually leave. This looked like a tutorial section to the Game Boy Advance Fellowship. In that game, it was subsequently followed up with devious and sometimes diabolical puzzles based on the fiction itself.

  • Conclusion: from Frodo to the wizened wizard Gandalf to the human warrior Aragorn. Each character has different attributes. Frodo is the smallest and weakest, but is the only one that can use the ring to find hidden areas in the game. But beware, because too much usage of the ring will "kill" him or just as bad will draw the attention of Sauron’s Black Riders, who Frodo has no chance against. Get these guys on your tail and expect to have your game end fairly quickly.

Level 7

  • Summary: Att göra spel av vad många anser vara fantasygenrens givna mästerverk har både sina för- och nackdelar. Fördelarna är förutom en mästerlig story, som spelutvecklarnas manusförfattare nog har svårt att toppa, också den stora målgrupp som redan existerar utan att astronomiska marknadsföringssummor måste investeras. Den här stora gratispubliken är kanske också den största nackdelen.
  • Pros: Baseras på den ultimata sagan om gott och ont., En del snygga grafiska effekter, Stämningsmusiken är lysande, Tom Bombadil sjunger
  • Cons: Buggar, Känns inte helt färdigt, Långtråkiga uppdrag, Simpel kontroll i striderna, Näst intill obefintlig AI
