Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest - ZTGD Preview

Cat writes, "The Lord of the Rings is serious business, so it's about time it took itself a little less seriously - we do enough of that. That the game looks more like a Saturday morning cartoon than anything Peter Jackson made is a small shock to the system, but not unwelcome, and it's appropriate that these rose colored glasses are worn by Sam Gamgee. The game follows Aragorn through the three books in flashbacks narrated by Sam, and is even voiced by Sean Astin of the Jackson films. The game is geared towards a young audience, and so the narration is constructed like Sam is telling his kids the story." (E3, Nintendo DS, PS2, PS3, PSP, Wii)

I commented on this article because I have too much time on my hands and am contemplating getting on the treadmill in my room (But I probably won't).

"I have too much time on my hands"

I really envy you.

There's too much something on MY hands but as there could be kids reading I won't go into detail about it. As for the game, I'm interested to see what the visual, if any, difference will be from Wii to PS3/Move. Surely, there HAS to be some kind of extra pretty for the HD console owners, no?

If not I fail to see much point in chasing the move market by EA over this one. Also, having been bitten very hard on a tender part of my anatomy more than once by games from Tolkein's universe I'm reluctant to hand over anything til a game like this actually manages a Metacritic of over 50! The last one was so bad that I wanted to sure Lovefilm for renting it to me without a health warning-seriously, how dull was that crap? Didn't they understand that wrapping up DW in different skins still made it a DW game that you need special powers to play in this day and age?

@mastiffchild - yeah, they didn't even have the PS3/Move version on show, and the Wii version looked...like the Wii version. With the PS3 as the oddball on the platform list, my skepticism is heightened.

Much similarities to Fable 2, no?

Definitely with the sparkly breadcrumb trail. The prostitutes and STDs...not so much ;)
