The Lord of the Rings: Gollum

Critics Consensus (Skip It)

What a letdown. The Lord of the Rings: Gollum has some interesting ideas, but it’s a messy experience with dull stealth, bad controls, terrible AI, outdated visuals, performance issues, and an utterly pointless story. This is one of the worst mainstream games of 2023.

Game Info

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is a story-driven action adventure. Take on a perilous journey as Gollum, chasing the only thing that is precious to him. Gollum is skillful and cunning, but also torn by his split personality. One mind, two egos – you decide!

1/10

Broken beyond belief but also a fundamentally bad idea for a video game, with inanely shallow and repetitive gameplay – Gollum is not only the worst mainstream game of the year but of the last two generations.

55/100

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum is a commendable game for Daedalic’s effort to tell a totally original story in Middle-earth mixing stealth mechanics and platforming, but it makes water on almost all sides: imprecise controls, terrible AI, insipid narrative, outdated level design and graphics from another generation.

1/5 stars

A derivative, uninteresting and fundamentally broken stealth action adventure that fails to capture anything interesting about Tolkien’s fiction.
