Criticism has been rife with The Lord of the Rings Gollum, officially the worst game of 2023 according to critics who harshly chastise Daedalic.
This week one of the smallest games sold in recent years: Lord of the Rings Gollum. Daedalic Entertainment had been working on this game for years (two years at most).
Despite the potential for the game to be profitable…, especially because of the combination of platform stealth and the game’s split personality between Gollum and Sméagol, the final result resonated.
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum was released to terrible reviews, becoming the lowest rated game of 2023 on Metacritic, with an average rating of 38 on PS5, and 43 on PC.
Note the game Gollum, the worst game of 2023
The only positive marks the game has are Gollum’s 70 from Adria IGN, two 65 from Wccftech and Shacknews, and 60 from IGN France.
Most of them, however, are offenses, flying between 4 and more 2s: the critics did not cut a hair in punishing Daedalic harshly.
Gfinity says that “like the title character, this game is ugly, ugly, and full of bugs.”
The Guardian gives it 1 star out of 5, saying “Break it and throw it away.”
And GameSpot says that “if the developers’ goal was to put you in the shoes of such a miserable character, with pain and suffering around every corner, at least they succeeded.”
In our analysis of Lord Ringul Gollum we tell you that, despite the ambition to tell an original story, it fails in almost every aspect: inaccessible controls, terrible AI, bland narration, flat design and graphics already given by another generation.
It’s a shame that this game is too obvious of a Daedalic game challenge, that it took two years longer than the previous game to complete, and yet it still came out full of glitches and crashes (which made it difficult for us to finish). and excellent downgrade.
