  • Summary: In The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest, preparations are underway in Hobbiton for a great party to welcome Aragorn, King of Gondor, and honor Samwise Gamgee for his service during the War of the Ring. The children of the town are eager to learn more of this great man and so Samwise, now Mayor, embarks on a tale of the revered warrior, Strider - as Aragorn is known in his Ranger days - and his most valiant battles. Players assume the role of Aragorn and embark on his greatest quests from The Lord of the Rings trilogy as they wield his sword, bow or spear on foot and on horseback through an action-packed gameplay experience. On the Wii platform, two-player co-op gameplay featuring Gandalf will allow kids, families and friends to work together in the heart of the action. [Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment] Expand

  1. It does a good job of presenting both Zelda-style adventuring and concentrated sandbox gameplay with a Tolkien flavor, combining them into a focused Middle Earth adventure that serves as an excellent Lord of the Rings primer and an expanded highlights reel of the films.
  2. Despite some flaws, Aragorn's Quest is an engaging adventure across a well-realized version of Middle-earth.

    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.

    Quotation forthcoming.
  5. Not even new voiceovers from Sean Astin (Sam) and John Rhys-Davies (Gimli) can salvage this thoroughly regrettable effort. [Nov 2010, p.88]

    Another LOTR disappointing production. Bad graphics and low accurate motion control make it sadly boring to play. Better when shared with a friend, yet not worth the money.
  7. The game's biggest flaw is its story, which is ironic due to the fact that the Lord of the Rings trilogy is all about its story.
