The Lord of the Rings: Gollum follows the untold story of the titular character and runs parallel to the events in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring movie. But judging from this game’s reviews, this story should have remained untold.
Critics have described Daedalic Entertainment’s stealth-adventure game as a bland and uninspired take on J.R.R. Tolkien’s iconic fiction. It is riddled with bugs and performance issues, and some reviewers even had difficulty completing the game.
