The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth

21 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Hier op Puteanus Towers zijn we niet vies van een lekkere battle waarbij we meer dan maar gewoon een paar boogschutters/tanks/robots de vijand te lijf kunnen. Ook niet vies zijn we van wat projecties van de LotR films van Peter Jackson. Net daarom keken we hier op Puteanus Towers eigenlijk al wel lang uit naar LotR: The Battle For Middle Earth, een game waarmee we de grote veldslagen uit de films zouden kunnen gaan naspelen. En kijk, wat ligt hier nu voor ons te blinken?

  • Conclusion: Those that liked the movies and are looking for a way to be a part of Middle-earth will find it to be a worthy choice for the collection. Even those who don’t have RTS in their hearts. It certainly caught me deeply and I can recommend it without a doubt. Lovers of Sauron will certainly enjoy their chance to stomp a hobbit or two.

  • Excerpt: I must begin this review with a confession: I love The Lord of the Rings. I’ve read the books several times and have seen the movies in their full extended edition glory even more times. I think that Tolkien created a fascinating world and that Peter Jackson did an excellent job of the very difficult task of bring the story to film. This means that I approached The Battle for Middle-earth (BFME) with a somewhat more critical eye than for other games.

Lord of the Rings, The Battle For Middle-Earth II Review

18 October 2006
  • Excerpt: Yep, just when you thought Lord of the Rings fever had died off completely, a sequel to Battle for Middle-Earth arrives. It's a sequel that at first glance seems to make little sense, considering the solid, but unspectacular, nature of the first game. However, on hearing the news that EA had purchased the rights to Tolkien's books, and that the game world was to be opened up to include all the wonders of Middle-Earth, I found myself interested again; even if the thought...

Excellent and addictive.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this is a battle game but it's about strategy more than anything else. Yes, it's all fighting but as T games go, this one is less bothersome than many -- no blood, no close-ups. It's easy enough for inexperienced kids to get hooked, yet it becomes quite challenging tand keeps kids playing. This game has an online option; Common Sense Media does not recommend online play for anyone under 12.

  • Excerpt: Graphics & Sound: Howard Shore's award-winning score underscores fantastic visuals that match those seen in Peter Jackson’s trilogy. Each area is full of little details, giving the entire game a life that is rarely seen in games. Even when running the game on lower settings, characters are still easily identifiable and match what is seen in the movies.

The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth

Deaf Gamers

  • Conclusion: The Battle for Middle-Earth is a superb example what can be done with a movie licence. It's very disappointing the game isn't subtitled though. Some of the dull campaign missions and the lacklustre skirmish mode also take some of the shine off the game.
