 A great LOTR game (especially for younger players!)

Told in retrospect by Sam Gamgee to his children long after the events portrayed in THE LORD OF THE RINGS, ARAGORNS QUEST details the journey of the weather beaten Ranger from his first meeting with the Hobbits in Bree, up to his coronation as King.

The graphics are very cartoony and bring to mind Japanese RPG styles, but once you get used to the child friendly nature of the game, you can begin to enjoy it. The musical score is good, with renditions of Howard Shores excellent film soundtracks to all three films, and it is nice to hear Sean Astin (reprising his role of Sam from the films) recording new dialogue directly for the game.

The controls are intuitive, using both controller and nunchuck, and special moves and abilities are unlocked through gameplay. The game is played on a level by level basis as Aragorn and his band of companions travel through Middle Earth, and although there is no option to backtrack to previously finished levels, the self contained nature of each segment ensures this should not be necessary.

The game follows the main plot of the novels/films, with creative embellishments on the way; Trolls attacking Dwarves outside Rivendell, for instance, or the Hobbits being attacked by ruffians whilst leaving Bree. Rather than distract from the plot, such unexpected proceedings help to keep the game fresh. There are also a host of items, collectibles and skills to acquire throughout the levels, to help keep the interest in exploring high, although one or two playthroughs is all most players may commit to the game, in truth.

A second player may join at any time to play as Gandalf, who simply offers support to Aragorn and can also be developed through the game with collectible enhancements.

All in all, ARAGORNS QUEST is a pleasant game, more child friendly than most LORD OF THE RINGS software, but intensely playable and enjoyable for all that, especially if played with younger children.

I was quite impessed about a lot of Aragorn's Quest - the narrative is interestingly and cleverly told - as a story told by Sam covering selected events from the films. The controls are responsive and fun, at times impressive visuals (but a conflict in styles and tone - not sure if it wants to have a cartoony feel or accurately represent the actors). The training levels are well handled, and some of the battles have a sense of scale. However, it is quite easy and can be repetitive, but a great game for the younger ones that adults can appreciate too, especially LOTR fans - really enjoying it!
