  • Summary: Good game, good graphics, fun but simple gameplay. It's just that it's not deep enough to be a competitive online RTS. Still worth it for the campaign if you're a Lord of the Rings fan.

  • Summary: This is a pretty good game. Playing the multiplayer is fun (even if the AI is stupid), and the Campaigns (Both good and evil) are fun. The only issues I saw were the lack of AI intelligence and that the game didn't go directly with the lore behind it...

  • Summary: I'd say that this is one of the best strategy game out there. It turns the beloved Lord of the Rings series into one video game featuring all of our favorite characters and battles, such as Helm's Deep, Minas Tirith, and Amon Hen. The alternate evil campaign is also very interesting. It features a brand new evil sequence set to represent the evil taking over Middle-Earth. Both campaigns are incredibly challenging and are lengthy, which makes this a great game.

  • Summary: I probably liked this game much more than I should have due to it being LOTR-themed. I found it fun and somewhat innovative, but also at times frustrating. Like all unit-cap control-the-nodes games, you'll spend a significant portion of your time on most levels scrambling to defend multiple spots at once while the AI uses its superior numbers and defenses to give you hell.

  • Summary: The game was a rare gem and one of my first and fondest competitive gaming experiences. The gameplay was unique and focused on battles and strategy first and foremost. It was easy to pick up and fun to play, and I don't think there has been any RTS games that have scratched this same itch since its death, not even its sequels did it justice. Now we can only hope for a BFME 3 with similar gameplay to BFME 1 but with much needed UI and community interface improvements.

  • Summary: Battle For Middle-Earth is a really fun and enjoyable game it is very well made and has years upon years of gameplay and has stunning graphics for such an old game. This games campaign will drag you inside MIddle-Earth and allow you to follow in the footsteps of the movies. If you are a Lord Of The Rings fan this is a must get, I have been playing it for some time now and I enjoy it much more then any other game like StarCraft2.

A Pleasing Adventure Set in Middle Earth...

  • Summary: Perhaps I'm a little biased when it comes to this game. For one thing, I grew up playing real-time strategy games (RTS) and they remain my favorite sort of gameplay. Secondly, Middle Earth happens to be very close to my imagination's heart, and I've watched the movies countless times, as well as read many of the books set in that world. To have the chance to actually be a part of that land and story excited me greatly. What a match made in heaven!

Be Bad?

  • Summary: I haven't always like Lord of the Rings until the third installment came to DVD at which point I had accidentally fallen in love with the trilogy and the lore. I've always wondered what it would look like if the good side didn't always win. The skirmishes that took place in between the quest of the fellowship. Battle for Middle Earth does that for you, it allows you to play the evil side in the Evil Campaign.

  • Conclusion: I was wondering whether I should buy this expansion pack for a while as I enjoyed playing Battle for Middle Earth 2. Eventually I bought it and I realised how much I had missed out on!
