Editorial Reviews

Baf's Guide


A vastly superior game to the one it is based on and one that makes far better usage of the source material available.

Bored of the Rings is a downright silly game in places with the humour often verging on slapstick; that said, it is very, very funny and even when you're cringing at the bad jokes you'll still be laughing.

Too many empty locations (due to lack of memory from a time when computer games had to fit within a certain size limit) mar the game and stop it becoming the classic it should have been, but even with problems like this BOTR is a great game which everyone should try.

-- David Whyld
