  • 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.

  • Conclusion: If you're a RTS dabbler who loved the original Battle for Middle Earth, try a slightly more complex (and even better looking) step and investigate Company of Heroes if you haven't already. If you're a strategist and a Lord of the Rings fan who is willing to overlook the less demanding elements of the BFME model - you however, will find this quite rewarding.
  • Pros: A little more juice wrung out of a promising model, A good alternative to more complex RTS experiences
  • Cons: If you're a casual player, the original should be more than enough for you, Angmar faction is a teeny bit overpowered (okay, a fair bit), No longer the hottest looking RTS - for that, there's Company of Heroes

  • Summary: After a spate of chart-topping hack ’n’ slashers, it’s no surprise that EA decided to cash in with another Rings-themed effort. But in using Peter Jackson’s trilogy as the backdrop for a cerebral strategy game rather than a kid-friendly brawler, it’s finally delivered a title in tune with the director’s epic vision.

The Lord Of The Rings: Battle For Middle Earth

  • Excerpt: "Lord of the Rings: The Battle of Middle Earth on oiva sekoitus strategiaa ja roolipeliä. Se ei juurikaan tarjoa mitään uutta genrelle, mutta toisin kuin useat muut tämän päivän lisenssipelit, joissa kylmät aikataulut vievät voiton, Middle Earth on uskollinen saagalle ja vangitsee elokuvien tunnelman. Kehno tekoäly saattaa kuitenkin paikoin turmella pelikokemusta. Tämän lisäksi kenttien välillä tapahtuva strategiointi saisi olla monipuolisempaa.
  • Pros: + Tavoittaa saagan hengen, + Ei hetkessä hutaistu, + Musiikki, + Yksiköissä ei omia ratkaisuja
  • Cons: - Paikoin onneton tekoäly, - Kenttien välinen strategiaosuus

Recenze: LOTR: Battle for Middle-Earth – Tolkien by zatleskal

  • Summary: Hry podle filmové předlohy obvykle dopadají všelijak, jen ne dobře. A to platí i pro hry podle Pána prstenů. Společenstvo bylo příšerné, Dvě věže raději pro PC ani nevyšly a Návrat krále se samotným Pánem prstenů neměla mnoho společného. Proč je Battle for Middle-Earth výjimkou a proč kandiduje na post "nejkrásnější hra vůbec" se dočtete v naší recenzi.
  • Pros: Perfektní převedení Středozemě do počítačové podoby, Bitvy velkých armád, Nechybí stěžejní momenty z knihy, resp. z filmu, Dobrá hratelnost, Perfektní koncepce zacházení se surovinami a stavbou
  • Cons: Pod pozlátkem toho není moc nového, Odchýlení od některých událostí z Pána prstenů, Mise se Společenstvem prstenu

  • Excerpt: И вот теперь на наш с вами суд выдвинут подозреваемый по имени The Lord Of The Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth . В целом игра повторяет сюжет третьего фильма, но то, что она повторяет поведение юнитов в кино, я не ожидал никак. Арагорн размахивал клинком осмысленно и выписывал такие кренделя на поле боя, что я уже хотел поинтересоваться, а ничего, если я уйду? Не ответил, что радует.
