Aragorn’s Quest Looks Better on Wii Than PS3

New screenshots have been released from WB’s family-friendly Lord of the Rings game, Aragorn’s Quest, and to my surprise the Wii version actually looks better than the PS3 version. Not by leaps and bounds, but a lot of the subtle lighting and character details you would expect from the PS3 are found on the Wii instead. The PS3 version does feature better shadow casting, though; I will give it that.

Aragorn’s Quest did enter development on PS3 after the lead Wii version, though, so maybe it’s still playing catch-up with those extra layers of detail. That’s my hope at least, as I’d hate for it to be a crap port with the sole purpose of cashing in on the PlayStation Move…

Compare the two for yourself, and take a look at some character renders while you’re at it.
