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.
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.
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...

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.
Summary: This game had the opportunity to be fantastic. Taking Tolkien's and Jackson's visions of Middle Earth and coupling that with the technology base of Command & Conquer Generals, it had five stars written all over it. Unfortunately, it's not good enough to warrant that kind of rating.
