A passable RTS at a reasonable price

Nona, Amazon
18 August 2008
  • Summary: This set is really a collection of two games (the first and second LOTR games, along with the expansion for the second game) with some bonus features, which mainly consist of interviews with various game developers. For the price (I got it when it was 30 dollars, and it's even cheaper now), this is a pretty good deal if you are an LOTR and/or RTS fan. As far as RTSes go, this is an average game.

Beware laptop users!

Benjamin I. Libner, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this game to play on my alienware laptop, which i thought could handle almost anything. it has no trouble with rome: total war, but for BFME2, it just is no fun. the game constantly loses track of the cursor so that the cursor icon freezes on the screen, making it almost impossible to do anything. EA was helpful in troubleshooting, but in the end they told me this game was not tested for laptops. so beware!

Great Singleplayer, Lackluster Multiplayer / Replayability

Pecos Bill, Amazon

  • Summary: If you're looking at this game for the single player campaign, you won't be disappointed. It's fun and pretty lengthy. The graphics and the combat are all superb, as is the storyline and voice acting, much of which is done by the actors from the movies. However, this game has two faults: 1) Replayability. There really isn't any.

Pretty good game, a little tedious

ghillisniper300 "Seek truth with discernment", Amazon

  • Summary: I would like to review all of the games included, but I really don't want to do each one seperately. I may. But for now, I'm reviewing them each seperately within this Anthology review, because that is how I bought them. I actually got BFME the first as a gift and then later bought the Anthology on sale. The first BFME was a great game.

  • Summary: In hoping for epic proportions I was treated to art that is super and a game that is so-so. If you like skirmish play... don't look here... it's not the most challenging. I beat 7 AI enemies on the hardest settings with relative ease. Plus... the campaign missions end up being simple base-on-base action... simply nothing great but solid in it's own right I guess. Look on the horizon for a new experience. Something new must be coming.

for die-hard RTS fans and LOTR fans only

  • Excerpt: To sum up this game, i can really only bestow upon it a comment of mediocrity. "It's pleasant enough". I know that seems a tad harsh, as it does have various merits. Overall the experience does feel a bit bland, with some of the RTS elements showing their age in particular. Multiplayer offers some variety, if only in the sense of frantic battles and gameplay.
