Bored of the Rings

This Week’s Games

EA continue to wring their The Lord of the Rings license for every last penny, releasing The Lord of the Rings: Conquest on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS and PC this week.

It’s by Pandemic – the Mercenaries and Full Spectrum Warrior people – but don’t go thinking it’s any good. GamesRadar has given it a right good kicking, calling it “an offensive parody” before scoring it a miserable 2 out of 10. What’s going on at Pandemic? Mercenaries 2 ended up worse than the original, and their Dark Knight game was apparently canned due to quality issues.

There’s only one other game out this week, and to be frank it’s hard to call it a game – it’s My Chinese Coach, another one of Ubisoft’s language aids for the DS. I’m still hanging on for My Klingon Coach.

Next week: Skate 2, My Fitness Coach and a late appearance for Tomb Raider: Underworld on PlayStation 2.
