( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Despite coming out long after the movies have finished up, Lord of the Rings: Aragon's Quest is actually quite appropriate in timing. See how tantalizing the title is in our Preview!

The Lord of the Rings is quite an old story now, but that's okay! The game's narrator, Samwise Gamgee, knows this and is just retelling the story of the War of the Ring to his children. Expect to see levels based on famous moments from the book and movies and lots of action!

Play It Again, Sam

Although the narrator is Sam, the game focuses around Aragorn, the King. As Sam retells Aragon's famous exploits, you get to experience them first hand. This is a great action/adventure game where you get to fight lots of enemies, including giant spiders and orcs, and also explore some very nice looking environments from Middle Earth.

In the game, you can use your sword, shield, bow and spear. The Nunchuk controls your movement and you can shake it to use your shield, just like in Zelda: Twilight Princess. Shaking the Wiimote will control you sword, but you can also switch to your bow on the fly and shoot people far away. You can upgrade your bow to shoot fire arrows and to hit multiple enemies at once. You can also shoot from your horse!

The Fellowship of the Ring

Of course, Aragorn is rarely alone. Although the game is not too hard, you will have computer helpers on some missions. Also, a friend can jump in and out of the game whenever they want and play as Gandalf. They won't be able to control Gandalf's movements, but they will be able to use powerful magic, like force field, fireballs, and healing spells. Plus, they can whack enemies on the head with Gandalf's staff.

The One Game to Rule Them All?

Aragorn's quest is a very fitting game for the epic Lord of the Rings series. The controls are excellent and camera is very friendly and helpful. There is plenty to do in the game on your own or with a friend. This is a great game for Tolkien fans new and old.
