When I saw Aragorn's Quest cheap, I had to buy it, being a huge Lord of the Rings fan and from the back of the box it seemed very impressive. However, I could not have been more disappointed. If you are a fan of the films and books then I suggest you avoid this at all costs!
The game is based in Hobbiton and Samwise Gamgee is telling his children about his adventure with Frodo. You start of as Frodo, Sam's son, and have to carry out a series of pointless tasks. Eventually, you can then play as Aragorn and it features all the key events from the 3 films plus numerous other tasks. This may sound brilliant but sadly the game is a let down on so many levels. The graphics are utterly awful for a PS3 game and many PS2 games have far superior graphics. I found the gameplay to be very slow and boring. The voice acting was terrible with only a few characters actually being the original actors, and considering that it was made in conjunction with Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema, I found this very disappointing - many of the characters sounded absolutely nothing like the original.
On the whole, this just appeared, sadly, to be another cash-in on the movie series, but a very poor one at that. I would recommend not touching this game with a barge pole and instead wait for Lord of the Rings War in the North.
I would not recommend this game for anyone who is a fan of the series.
