  • Excerpt: Stepping off the boat in the Grey Havens Before we begin, I have a couple of prejudices that should, I think, rightly skew how you read my review. I haven’t actually read the Lord of the Rings trilogy, for instance.

  • Excerpt: First I'd like to mention that I didn't play the first game in the Battle for Middle Earth series, therefore I don't know how the game has improved. Also, I am a fan of the Lord of the Rings series - I have played the Fellowship of the Ring, the Return of the King, LOTRO and this one.
  • Pros: Graphics for the time, Story, Old-style

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Those who own BFME II and have a strong interest in the LoTR and the story surrounding it should get a hold of Witch-king. Those who are interested in the multiplayer aspect and want a new faction to muck about with should look in to getting it.

  • Cons: Frame rate struggles during big battles, Graphics get a bit muddled on a standard-definition display
