  1.  Utterly shameful!

    Posted: 

    Previous Lord of the ring games have never really captured the greatness of the trilogy (in my personal opinion). However, this latest game has been the worst, by far I have ever seen. Being developed on multiple platforms usually means it isn't honed to fully exploit the systems capabilities, so I am willing to accept if the graphics aren't as good, or the plot as long.

    Aragorn's Quest does not even go that far, first of all the graphics resemble something from the days of the PS2, which at the time were superb. Now a days this is pathetic and it is obvious that the developers have simply slapped a ragtag game together and put a highly over priced label on it. It is barely worth the plastic it comes in and I do not exaggerate.

    The plot is as linear as a ruler and the advertisement for "Playstation Move" compatible only means it responds as well as the basic WII remote does (no offence intended for the WII being a trendsetter) but the Playstation Move is supposed to be more advanced and they haven't even exploited their main gimmick.

    So please, I beg you, do NOT buy this game, it is a waste of money and effort, but if I cannot sway you from this cause then don't say I did not warn you.

  2.  Overall Excellent

    I first ordered this game not knowing quite what to expect, but when I started playing it was nothing like the original first two games in the series. Sure the basic plot for each world, (game plot totally new btw), is roughly the same. The way you play it out is far different to methods seen in the past.

    The new battle system will have you rethinking how you play Kingdom Hearts because you have to be more rigorous with your choice of attacks as they are quite limited as to what you can use at one time. The AI finally has some sense with the enemies dodging various attacks, leading to a real battle instead of just a slaughter. Also I noticed enemies have weaknesses to certain elements, which only deepens the strategy aspect.

    The battle itself and the amount of options you have during battle will have you coming up with completely new strategies unheard of in Kingdom Hearts; which is a nice refresher.

    The average world is smaller then what has been expected out of the last two games, but this is only a minor problem as they are packed with adventure, enemies and the occasional mini game (which are quite enjoyable in themselves). New worlds, never before seen in KH is a lovely site bringing new characters and worlds into the mix.

    Birth by Sleep (although I have yet to complete it) has been a rollercoaster of a game and to top it all off, along the way this game may just answer some questions you've had about KH for several years since KH2.I believe this game fills in a bit more of the jigsaw puzzle of a plot that is Kingdom Hearts.

    It's a must buy for any KH fan but to all those who have yet to experience the epic Kingdom Hearts series I highly recommend playing the first two games in the series first, just so your brought up to speed on the whole concept.
