Story
It is now the Fourth Age of Middle-earth; a time of peace. Yet though the great battles and deeds that eventually lead to the destruction of the Ring of Power are a distant memory for most, they are not forgotten. Preparations are underway in Hobbiton for a great party to welcome the legendary Aragorn, now king of the united lands of Arnor and Gondor, and to honor Samwise Gamgee for his service during the War of the Ring. With Aragorn’s visit to the Shire imminent, Sam’s children are eager to learn more about this great man and so Sam, now Mayor of Hobbiton, embarks on a tale of the revered warrior, Aragorn, and the valiant deeds that transformed a Ranger of the North, into the last great king of men in Middle-earth.

Gameplay
The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest is an action-adventure game designed to allow young players to relive the great battles and events featured in J.R.R Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings". 13 levels of battles, designed to be accessible and family-friendly, are related and relived through the filter of storytelling sessions by the hobbit Samwise Gamgee to his children, with the actions of Aragorn taking center stage. In single player mode the game has players assuming the role of Aragorn, supported by AI versions of familiar characters from the Fellowship and the wider world of the free peoples of Middle-earth. The Wii version also features a co-op play option with the second player assuming the role of the Wizard Gandalf. Throughout the battles, which for the most part stay true to those found in Tolkien's trilogy, the player utilizes the Wii Remote/Nunchuk controller configuration (Gandalf uses the Wii Remote only). Aragorn can engage in both combat on foot and from horseback using his main weapon the sword, Andúril, but he can also wield other weapons and collect other items including torches, shields—both of which utilize the Nunchuk controller—as well as spears and a bow. These can be purchased using gold found throughout the game or as a reward for completing missions. Additional features and functionality including special skills such as Aragorn's "Battle Cry" which terrifies enemies, while strengthening the player and their troops, as well as the ability to upgrade weapons, armor and attacks.

Key Game Features

  • Extension of the LOTR Universe - Journey through Middle-earth as Aragorn and live out the heroic adventures of "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy.
  • Become the Legend - Become Aragorn and relive his greatest quests in this family and kid-friendly rendition of Tolkien’s fabled Middle-earth.
  • Unique Co-op Play - Kids, families and friends can work together as Aragorn and Gandalf to share in the experience at any time. Sophisticated and novice gamers can wield the power of Gandalf to inflict magical attacks upon the minions of Sauron with easy drop-in, drop-out co-op play.
  • Intuitive Motion-Control Gameplay - Take advantage of the Wii Remote and Nunchuk for intuitive and immersive gameplay including swordplay, archery, spears and more
  • Attack on Horseback - Scatter the enemy and charge down the foes on horseback. While mounted, use your sword and spear to defeat assailants.
  • Battle Familiar Enemies - Players will encounter and battle fierce creatures from "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy such as Orcs, Trolls and Ringwraiths.
  • Unleash Special Character Skills - On the battlefield, use Aragorn’s “Battle Cry” to terrify enemies, while strengthening the player and their troops.
  • Gather Legendary Collectibles - Along the journey players will collect useful items such as gold and silver coins to purchase armor, weapons and battle attack upgrades.

5.0 out of 5 stars This game is really good. February 7, 2011
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
LOTR: Aragorn's Quest is a huge, beautiful looking, action packed RPG that manages to tell the entire Tolkien story in an entertaining way. There are a total of 9 large levels: The Shire, Bree, Rivendell, Mines of Moria, Fangorn forrest, Rohan, Helm's Deep, Pelennor Fields and Mordor. You will play as Frodo Gamgee (son of Samwise) in the Shire segments (or his sister Elanor if you are in 2 player co-op) and as Aragorn (or Gandalf in 2 player) during the main LOTR story. The game is a good mix of RPG and hack and slash. You will meet lots of people as you explore the different levels and most of them will want something from you (think MONSTER HUNTER TRI) and you have the option to ignore them and stay on your main quest or go off on their side quest and do as they ask. There are advantages to doing the side quests since they allow you to explore more of the rich environment of this game and they will also help your character level up (in many instances) by giving him some gift or treasure that will increase his abilities. Along the way you will fight plenty of Goblins, Trolls, giant spiders etc. Your main weapon is a sword that uses the Wii remote motion control. You will also get other weapons like a flaming torch and a bow. The bow will become hugely important during the final battle at the gates of Mordor so it is to your advantage to purchase upgrades for it with the money you find on your journey. Sadly, the bow is the most poorly controlled of the weapons so you may want to practice with it quite a bit before you reach the final level. There are also segments in Rohan where you will be on horesback as well as a horseback battle with some Oliphants.

The game looks amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun for younger kids November 21, 2010
By fezzik
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
We are not avid gamers in our family. But this LOTR game offers hours and hours and hours of gameplay. My 5 year old and I had so more fun working our ways through all the games quests. We do not own many Wii games, but as a house filled with LOTR nuts, this was worth every penny of the $59 we paid when it was freshly out. Not graphically violent (e.g. not blood splattering). Done in a fashion that fun and acceptable (I believe) for some younger kids.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Story, Fun Game, Definitely Worth $20! April 27, 2011
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My daughter (who is 7) and I love the LOTR series. We only have the Wii. We love all the LEGO games. Based on the gamer magazine reviews, I decided to pass on buying this. Due to all the rainy weather we have had recently, I decided to revisit this game and see what Amazon reviewers had to say about this game. It seemed to get good reviews and the price had dropped to $20. After playing the game for about 4 hours now, I have to say I am very happy with Aragorn's Quest. Harcore adult gamers will hate this game. It's too easy and not overly complex. Casual gamers, like myself and my daughter, will love, love, love this game!! It is fun, engaging, intuitive, and visually appealling. For example, as opposed to all the Super Mario series, the storyline is read to you in many places. Good god, I hate it when I have to read text bubble after text bubble. It takes some liberties with the LOTR story but I found that it worked well with how the game is layed out. It has co-op two player capability. Player 1 is primarily Aragorn and player 2 is Gandalf. Downside is that the hidden items are not that hard to find and the game won't last seemingly forever (like Zelda). Is this as good as Zelda: Twilight Princess? No way. Is this game worth $20 and is it a good father/daughter/son bonding game? Absolutely!! If this is what you are looking for, then ignore the reviews from the gaming sites and magazines and purchase it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Really for kids and casual gamers July 3, 2011
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I have mixed feelings about Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest. On the one hand, it's certainly not the Lord of the Rings epic I'd hoped for. For that, the Gamecube Lord of The Rings The Return of The King is still the best bet. On the other hand, for kids and casual gamers it's not a bad game.

First, this game is short and easy. For anybody who's played through the Legend of Zelda games, this will probably take less than 10 hours to beat and you will probably die only once or twice. There aren't really any puzzles, and even if there are the game system has a clue system that makes sure you never get lost. Even within that much of it is spent with boring "fetch" quests, i.e. Aragorn has to find something and return to somebody for a reward. Only in front of the Black Gates do you get the sense of an epic battle. In many other stages, the number of enemies is fairly low and things move pretty slowly.

Graphically, the game is a mixed bag. I love the mix between the realistic and cartoonish styles. The pastel color schemes are particularly beautiful. Also, the Hobbiton cutscenes and levels are stunning (for the Wii). However, most of the other levels and characters have good, not great, graphics. The non-Hobbiton cutscenes are abysmal, with some sequences in which the characters' mouths don't even move.

Another thing the game gets right is the Wii controls. The swordfighting is pretty intuitive and works pretty well. This game isn't Motion Plus, but it does allow to to swing your sword left or right, up or down.
