    This is one of those titles which catch a franchise and edulcorate it. It is far from being a perfect game, because it have several errors in the control and ultimately is too easy.
  2. It's probably a Wii version ported to PS3, and that's a shame. Playing with Move is pretty crappy, but it's fun nevertheless and a new way to bring the Lord of the Rings franchise to the younger gamer.

    The Wii version easily gets the nod as the one to get.

    The Move controls work fairly well...but such a blatant Wii port shouldn't be full price and won't impress serious PS3 gamers. [Issue#199, p.97]

    This game is one of the few that implements the PlayStation Move controller as it should be, but it's a shame the graphics are poor and the gameplay is extremely simple and repetitive. The concept is cool, but they could have done so much more.

    Aragorn becames the best character in order to tell the most interesting moments of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, navigating between a childish graphic engine and a very interesing gameplay-style. Consider to by it if you're a die hard or if you're curious to find what's new on this Aragorn's Quest.

    Although this game is a beautiful game all around, The fixed camera can be annoying and the story is not very in-depth. Most of the time youAlthough this game is a beautiful game all around, The fixed camera can be annoying and the story is not very in-depth. Most of the time you are running around completing side quests or traveling back and forth to the same area. This can be very time consuming so I advise patience while trying to Platinum this game. This game is VERY easy, Even on hard difficulty there is not much of a challenge. Also, If you have a second controller your friend can jump in and play. Expand

    Terrible game it seems it was made for small children, very poor graphics it looks like a nintendo wii game as the critics say. If youTerrible game it seems it was made for small children, very poor graphics it looks like a nintendo wii game as the critics say. If you activate a second controller a message would come up saying no co-op available at this time and does not go away unless you turn off the other controller, it has many other stupid little problems that are really annoying and I only played it for 30 min.
