Best Lord Of The Rings Games Based On The Books

Long-time video game and Lord of the Rings fans may remember The Hobbit, a classic third-person platformer and action-adventure game from 2003. Developed by Inevitable Entertainment and Sierra Entertainment (both now defunct), The Hobbit followed the examples set by other popular adventure games like The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. The game even takes some notes from early Harry Potter games.

Before iconic LOTR location Hobbiton would appear in Animal Crossing and other contemporary building games, it made a splash in The Hobbit, serving as an introductory level awash with vibrant colors and cheerful music. Hobbiton is likely the most fondly remembered location for many who played the game at release, but there are just as many darker, more dangerous levels further on in the game that offer valuable experiences. A lot of this value comes down to the game’s visuals and overall aesthetic which, while a bit dated, hold up quite well and retain their old-school charm. Lord of the Rings fans with access to a PC, Xbox, PS2, or GameCube can check The Hobbit out for themselves. There was also a stripped-back version of the game released for the GameBoy Advance.

LOTR: The Fellowship Of The Ring Is A Darker Adventure

Despite being released in 2002 between the first two Peter Jackson The Lord of the Rings films, Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring is based on the books. This is connected to issues surrounding the Lord of the Rings video game rights, which were split between the books and the movies; Vivendi Entertainment owned the game rights for the novels, while Electronic Arts had ownership of the video game rights for Peter Jackson’s films.

Licensing issues aside, LOTR: The Fellowship of the Ring is a unique and exciting action-adventure title with enough interesting twists and turns to keep players hooked. The game centers on Frodo, Aragorn, and Gandalf, all of whom are playable at different chapters in the game and boast different gameplay mechanics (Aragorn focused on combat, Gandalf slinging spells, etc.). There are a few interesting twists in the game’s design as well, such as the Purity meter for Frodo, which represents his corruption from the in-game Ring of Power (foreshadowing similar mechanics in the upcoming LOTR: Gollum, which emphasizes struggles with morality). Mirroring the books, Fellowship of the Ring is noticeably darker and more mature than The Hobbit game, centering more on combat than platforming and presenting a muddier color palette. The moment-to-moment combat may not be up to par with modern games like Middle-earth: Shadow of War, but the atmosphere and diverse gameplay systems will satisfy plenty Lord of the Rings fans.

LOTR: War Of The Ring Adds Strategy Gameplay To Lord Of The Rings

Most video games set in the Lord of the Rings universe are action-adventure games with a focus on hack-and-slash combat. However, players looking for something a bit more methodical may want to check out Lord of the Rings: War of the Ring, an RTS set during the battle of the same name. Players will engage in large-scale battles featuring characters from the books, with gameplay reminiscent of the Warcraft series. Having released in 2003, the game won’t rival modern strategy games like EA’s upcoming LOTR: Heroes of Middle-earth RPG when it comes to graphical fidelity or presentation. Still, War of the Ring serves up solid PC strategy gameplay that many fans of the genre are sure to enjoy.

The Lord Of The Rings: Volume 1 Is A SNES Classic

Contemporary video game fans may lean more towards more modern, 3D Lord of the Rings adventure games, but The Lord of the Rings: Volume 1 is a charming, one-of-a-kind experience that retro game fans will love. Released on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1994, LOTR: Volume 1 follows the first book in the series, with players starting as Frodo Baggins and picking up other characters like Samwise Gamgee and Peregrin Took over the course of the game. Interestingly enough, up to four players can embark on this adventure through local co-op, with other members of the party being controlled by AI in single-player. Lord of the Rings: Gollum previews show interesting mechanics, but the inclusion of unique design staples seems to be a long-running trend in the series, as LOTR: Volume 1 boldly features a permadeath system – something that is rare in gaming.

The world of The Lord of the Rings is rife with potential when it comes to video game adaptations. While movie tie-in games are often disappointing, the rich source material left behind by J.R.R. Tolkien has served as inspiration for many intriguing, well-crafted games. Whether someone likes contemporary third-person action games or real-time strategy titles, there is no shortage of lovely gaming experiences based on The Lord of the Rings novels.
