The Lord of the Rings: Gollum it didn’t get good reviews, far from it. But there is one detail that is thrilling the web: the incredible downgrade suffered by Gollum in the final version of the game, compared to promotional material.
For details on the quality of the game, read our review of The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, which talks about a poorly designed game full of technical and gameplay problems.
Having said that, a significant detail has not escaped the network: Gollum seems to have suffered a very heavy downgrade compared to the promotional material.
