Games Asylum: "How do you create a large-scale video game solely centered around Gollum? It’s a question the developers at Daedalic likely asked themselves countless times. Unlike other key characters from the works of Tolkien, he isn’t a master of magic, a skilled swordsman, or an adept archer. He’s…Gollum. A diminutive, twisted, callous creature that spends his days crawling through cave networks while skulking in the shadows. He isn’t a character to admire, but rather feel mildly sympathetic for."
