About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

18. 'The Lord of the Rings: Gollum' (Switch/PS5/PS4/XSX/XOne/PC)

The Lord Of The Rings: Gollum is all-new action adventure title that will remain true to the vision laid out in J.R.R Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings and will also explore new events and details related to Gollum's journey.

Redmond Carolipio: I'm wondering why it took so long for Gollum to get his own game, but the gameplay concept appears to be perfectly suited for him. I get the impression it'll be a combination of climbing, stealth and probably some puzzle stuff in rich Middle-earth environs. I'm most looking forward to inhabiting the space of the character himself, where everything will just seem bigger as he duels with his split personalities.

Rhi "StormyDawn" Mitera: It's a beautiful day in Mordor, and you are a horrible Gollum. The Lord of the Rings: Gollum combines stealth, platforming and action into a game about making sure a bunch of orcs have a bad day, and really, what more could you ask for? It's like a puzzle-based assassin game! As much as I love the Shadow of Mordor games, Gollum looks like a refreshing approach to one of my most beloved franchises.

Rainier Van Autrijve: It's been a long time since we had a game based on J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" novels. Aside from The Lord of the Rings Online (in its 15th year), there has only been LEGO: The Lord of the Rings. Amazon Studios' The Lord of the Rings MMO was canceled in 2021, so TLotR: Gollum remains our only precious upcoming action-adventure game in the LotR realm. The developer may not be too well known to the mainstream gamer, but it has been around for over a decade and has a good track record of telling stories based on literary works, which is exactly what The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is: a more in-depth look at the story of Gollum/Sméagol in pursuit of his precious lost ring. While Gollum is a well-known character, it will be interesting to see and hear more about his backstory.
