Andre’s GameReviewPad Gaming Odds & Ends SNAPSHOT:
The Gollum Disaster
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum just may be one of the worst video games I’ve ever watched and not played in a very long time. As a fan of The Lord of the Rings, I was hoping this would be a good game, but as I sort of alluded to in my last newsletter, I had an eerie feeling about this one. The promotion was almost non-existent and every trailer showed a graphics quality of Gollum that just wasn’t up to the times. For an indie game or something else you can make excuses for it, but this is LOTR for goodness sake! It has to look good!
When I saw all the reviews start rolling in that were in universal agreement that this is 2023’s worst game of the year, I was a little skeptical. It’s unusual for everyone in gaming to agree on something. I wanted to check it out myself just to make sure. It’s bad, like really bad! I watched various people play many parts of the game and the flaws were incredibly glaring. not just visually, but the game is incredibly stale. The developer, Daedalic Entertainment, is known for good point-and-click story games, so it’s a mystery why they chose to make LOTR: Gollum a 3D platformer. I did see parts of the story, particularly the beginning and the end of the game, and the ends is just atrocious.
