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.

  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.

    Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest is fun and satisfying, if just a tad repetitive action adventure with good fan service to those of you that love the Tolkein novels and Peter Jackson films.

    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.

    Ultimately, it feels almost disrespectful that Tolkien's rich and evocative mythology should be reduced to collecting "Gandalf Tokens" and bowdlerising one of the 20th century's greatest mythologies. The pity is that that Aragorn's Quest works well enough to prove that LOTR does indeed have the makings of an epic RPG. Unfortunately, this isn't it.
  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.
