  • 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.

Expert Review

GameSpot
7 December 2004
  • Summary: Gandalf didn't "die" in Moria. In fact, the old wizard slapped down the Balrog and marched out of the mountain with the rest of the fellowship. Meanwhile, King Theoden of Rohan managed to get cut down at Helm's Deep and, oh yeah, Boromir lives. Is this revisionist fantasy history at work?
  • Pros: Big battles that capture the feel of the movies., Campaign map lets you decide where to go next., Excellent graphics and sound effects., Voices provided by most of the movie cast.
  • Cons: Heroes can get in the way at times., The battles tend to be long wars of attrition., AI is easy to manipulate.

18 December 2013
  • 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...
  • 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

7 December 2006
  • 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.
  • 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.

Slaget om Midgård - Härskarringen

FZ
13 January 2005
  • Summary: Ibland känns det som spelindustrin går på tomgång och idétorkan ett faktum. För inte många år sedan var spel som bygger på film senaste trenden och nu är det tvärtom. Ett spel som bygger på en film, som bygger på en bok, finns det något att hämta från det? Vad ska bli nästa trend?

  • Excerpt: Bare fordi Ringenes Herre-trilogien for længst har gået sin sejrsgang i biografer verden over, betyder det skam ikke, at filmlicensen ligger stille på spilfronten. I hvert fald ikke når EA har fat i den, for så skal vi nok få Aragorn, Gandalf, Frodo og alle de andre at se i det ene spil efter det...
