  • 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
  • Cons: Minor bugs

20 August 2007
  • Excerpt: The Lord of the Rings video games have become a popular franchise among gamers. Among EA’s Lord of the Rings -themed hits was The Battle for Middle-Earth , a PC RTS. The game was well received by gamers and critics, so it was destined for a sequel. That sequel was released in the form of The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth II , in the Spring of 2006.

Game Over Online
30 March 2006
  • 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. I can’t tell you if certain places or units were in the books; the only Tolkien I’m familiar with is The Hobbit and what filtered into Peter Jackson’s movies. Neither have I played the original Battle for Middle-Earth .

The Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth II

GAMESQUAD
26 March 2006
  • Conclusion: But the accessibility, familiarity and beauty of Battle for Middle Earth II are only the veneer on a challenging and well-balanced masterpiece. Each building decision matters. Every battle runs the risk of destroying a unit you've carefully nurtured into a veteran status. Scouting matters. Territorial control matters. Mastery of chokepoints matters. Are you one of those who think there isn't enough strategy in real time strategy? Look again.
  • Pros: Good use of audio; top-notch animations; excellent visuals; well balanced gameplay.
  • Cons: Simplistic economic model will not appeal to all RTS fans; poor documentation; 6-CD install.

F.E.A.R.

GAMESQUAD
17 December 2005
  • Conclusion: F.E.A.R. is certainly one of the best first-person shooters we've seen in quite some time. The creepy plot and thrilling action combine to form one of the most intense game experiences of the year. The level design is a bit uninspired at times, but the spectacular lighting and special effects do wonders to bring even mundane areas to life. If you have a system that can handle the steep requirements, be sure to check this one out. If not, it may be time for an upgrade.
  • Pros: Excellent graphics; creepy plot; nice sound effects; intense battles.
  • Cons: Steep system requirements; uninspired level design.

  • Excerpt: Na onder andere 3 boeken en 3 zeer succesvolle films konden games over The Lord of the Rings natuurlijk niet uitblijven. Eerst bracht men 4 RPG’s uit en nu dus een Realtime Strategy-game. In dit spel is het de bedoeling dat je de legers van Midden-Aarde controleert en probeert alle gebieden te veroveren.

The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle Earth 2

  • Summary: Op nieuwjaarsdag maakte ik een preview over de beta van The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle Earth 2. Toen had ik beloofd ooit eens een review te schrijven over het hele spel. Hier sta ik dus en jullie zullen vast wel benieuwd zijn wat mijn conclusie over de game is. Electronic Arts heeft er 10 maanden aan gewerkt en toen ik het spel opstartte kon ik als Lord of the Rings fan niet wachten om het eindelijk na maanden te proberen!
  • Pros: Graphics, Sound, Veel mogelijkheden, Online, LOTR-feeling, Sfeer
  • Cons: Campagne kort, Interface hetzelfde, AI

  • Summary: – прекрасная игра, достойное развитие серии, которое, что немаловажно, разбавило былые идеи несколькими нововведениями. И поскольку между оригинальной игрой и ее продолжением есть отличия, то продукт таки развивается. А значит – мы почти наверняка получим в свое распоряжение третью часть!

  • Excerpt: давно уже зарятся десятки, если не сотни претендентов. Чуть ли не каждая похожая RPG объявляет себя «убийцей Дьяблы», да вот только пороха пока еще никому не хватило. В королевстве же RTS/RPG приоритеты иные: время от времени, собравшись с силами, кто-то пытается свергнуть старичка

Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle-earth II

  • Excerpt: Игры по кинолицензии или, что ещё хуже, фильмы по играм - это отдельная головная боль во всём компьютерном мире. Сколько прекрасных фильмов было изуродовано в своих игровых прототипах. Вспомните фильм Матрица - для многих он стал откровением. А вспомните игру Вход в Матрицу - для многих стало «откровением», что колёса у машин квадратные, а "сногсшибательная графика" (как заверяли разработчики) могла спокойно заткнуть за пояс самую смелую картину Пикассо.
