Our review of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power
If you’ve been looking forward to any holidays, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is a good option for the family. Based on a long classic novel, the movie takes place several thousand years before Bilbo Baggins and Frodo Baggins journeyed to destroy the One Ring. Set in Middle-earth, it tells adolescents’ struggles alongside normal people and ends with an epic battle where only Galadriel (Liv Tyler) has success against darkness.
My thoughts on the book
Being a big fan of The Lord of the Rings, I was so excited to get my hands on The Rings of Power. I’ve read all of the books and seen all of the movies, so I had high expectations for this game. Unfortunately, I wasn’t very impressed. While the visuals are stunning, the gameplay just didn’t live up to my expectations. There is a lot of padding in between events that don’t move the story forward at all, making it difficult to get invested in the game. I also found it annoying that you have to do a lot of backtracking to find items you need later on in the game. Overall, I think The Rings of Power is a disappointment when compared to other Lord of the Rings games out there.
Analysis of how The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power sets its world/time
The game The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power takes place in a time period which is different then most other games out there. It is set in the late Third Age, when Sauron is beginning to grow stronger and the Ringwraiths are multiplying. For many gamers, this setting may well be new and intriguing. However, some may find it confusing or uninviting. Overall, it does provide a new perspective on the events that take place in the books. One thing which can be criticized about The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is how closely it sticks to the books. Some aspects of the game, such as Aragorn’s character development arc or Frodo’s decision to take on Mount Doom, have been changed significantly from how they are portrayed in Tolkien’s work. This could be seen as a negative by some, as it effectively gutted much of what makes these characters memorable and engaging. Thankfully, despite this
Analysis of how Tolkien’s writing sets the tone and place of the story
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is one of many adaptations from J.R.R. Tolkien’s masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings. Released in 2007 for the Playstation 2, Xbox 360, and GameCube, the game setting is based on The Fellowship of the Ring, while continuing with The Two Towers, and finally wrapping up with The Return of the King. Once again, faithful adaption was given in this game with updated graphics and sounds to match those in contemporary films released in 2001-2003. As should be expected by now, huge changes have been made to the story line to make it more accessible and appealing to movie watchers – in particular younger generations who have only seen the movies rather than reading all three books. While I cannot say that I unequivocally agreed with all changes made for this adaptation, it was interesting to see how much of Tolkien’s writing still managed to shine through even after almost 800 years since his death. Here are a few examples: 1) The open-ended cliffhanger at the end of The Fellowship of the Ring that left many readers wondering what would happen next – present day players are finally able to find out! 2)
Analysis of O’Brien’s interpretation in The Lord of the Rings
In his recent book, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, Noel O’Brien provides a fresh reading that takes into account new scholarship on the author. In this review, we will explore how well O’Brien’s interpretation works and where it falls short. O’Brien insists that Tolkien’s intention in the books was not to create a historical epic or a romance, but something very different: a spiritual journey or pilgrimage. Readers should not expect an engaging story with likable protagonists – Tolkien’s Middle-earth is full of powerful characters who are often destructive and unyielding. The first half of the book follows Frodo’s progress from childhood to old age as he traverses Middle-earth in search of the One Ring. O’Brien divides the narrative into three parts: Frodo begins his journey in ignorance, moves through disillusionment and finally reaches enlightenment. This central motif – Frodo’s spiritual growth – is at the heart of the book and provides a strong motivator for readers. However, O’Brien’s interpretation is marred by many serious problems. First, he fails to adequately explain events in Frodo’s early life, such as why

O’Brien, Cormac (author): Growing up in Dublin, when he was not listening to stories his grandfather would pass down
about the great medieval Irish epic, The Táin Bó Cúailnge, Cormac O’Brien loved reading books. When he was eighteen and deeply in debt, he decided to write one of his own. That book became The Tower Treasure, which was published in 2000. Cormac continued to write books and in 2007 I sent him a proposal to write the prequel to The Lord of the Rings trilogy. With over fifty rejections behind him, Cormac finally agreed to do Rings of Power (2011). Cormac’s love for Tolkien’s work shines through in Rings of Power as readers journey with Frodo and Sam back into Middle-earth during the Quest of Eru Iluvatar. From the very beginning, it is abundantly clear that Cormac has immersed himself completely in Tolkien’s world. Readers will appreciate Cormac’s attention to detail, from Gandalf’s staffs to the way Gimli swings his axe. Rings of Power features a large ensemble cast, but most importantly it is friendship that drives the story. Characters like Merry and Pippin are endearing despite their flaws, and readers will cheer when they finally arrive at Mount Doom and help destroy Sauron’s one hope
