Guardians of Middle-Earth
Previously released games set in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings universe have either failed to place players in control of the characters they know and love or they have been horrible movie tie-ins. Guardians of Middle-Earth, on the other hand, uses the faults of all previous games and turns them into strengths – it puts the likes of Gollum and Legolas at the disposal of the player.
The gameplay itself might be a bit different than this cinematic trailer led us to believe, but there’s no denying that seeing Gandalf take on Sauron is a dream scenario. Hopefully this game will serve as inspiration for the inevitable tie-in to The Hobbit: There and Back Again.
