Gandalf make a significant appearance in Aragorn's Quest, and he's looking decidedly less gray at this point. Gandalf is the character that player two takes control of in co-op. Gandalf has a significantly different combat style than Aragorn, using magical attacks to devastate foes and spells to protect Aragorn with a magical shield. I'm glad to see that this game has a dedicated co-op with some real thought put into it; most developers just rip-off Mario Galaxy's second Wii pointer shtick and call it a day.




In The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest, players become the legendary Aragorn and embark upon a quest reliving the hero’s most valiant battles from The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Wielding a sword, shield, bow and spear, players will battle enemies and journey through a colorful and fresh rendition of Middle-earth where they can switch between spear and sword on horseback, taking down evil foes in a truly action-packed gameplay experience. Two-player co-op gameplay featuring Gandalf allows kids, families and friends to work together in the heart of the action on the PS3 and Wii.



The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest video game will feature the voice talents of actor Sean Astin (Rudy, The Goonies, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) and actor and vocal artist John Rhys-Davies (Indiana Jones, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy). Both Astin and Rhys-Davies will reprise their on-screen roles of Samwise Gamgee and Gimli. The game also showcases original in-game music tracks along with music from The Lord of the Rings film scores created by composer Howard Shore.
