As far as fantasy fiction is concerned, the Lord of the Rings is one of the best books ever, no argument. It was no surprise that when the first in the trilogy of film versions made it to cinemas, it sucked up and spat out audiences for breakfast. The Lord of the Rings interactive for the PC features multi-themed activities based around Tolkien's masterpiece.
One of the most interesting features of this title is the quiz. There are hundreds of questions that will test your knowledge of the Rings. Like most quizzes, you will undoubtedly learn some new and interesting information along the way.
The character profile section gives detailed and essential facts of the main characters. In addition to the background info, you can choose to print out unique, 'collectable' scroll posters of our heroes.
In fact, if you wanted to, you could literally go Lord of the Rings printing crazy and make good use of the print room. In this section you can use the provided colourful artwork to make your own posters, calendars, bookmarks, greeting cards and party kits. Perfect for throwing a themed party.
The Paint and Create studio lets you try your hand at colouring in several line-art drawings to your own taste. Fun for kids and without the mess of cleaning up afterwards.
Finally, There are one hundred screensavers and desktop images that can be used to spice up the appearance of your personal computer.
If you've been taken in by the film, and are possibly re-reading the book, talking and sleeping Lord of the Rings, this interactive activity set is well worth the asking price. Seek it out, brave wizard.
