A thoroughly enjoyable and exciting romp through Middle Earth

  • Excerpt: "...said before, in my opinion the greatest strength of this game (as with many RTSGs) lies in the skirmish mode. Here you can create the battles that you dreamed of while watching the Lord of the Rings trilogy, with inticate and exciting base building and area based resource gathering , these battles can be vast engagements between whatever armies and races you choose and are often extremely enjoyable and thoroughly replayable. However, the story ...
  • Pros: good graphics, immerses you in Tolkein's world, very playable (and replayble), good customisation
  • Cons: unit skins can be shiny and goofy, a mod is this games best friend

  • Excerpt: "...but few can compare with the Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle-Earth Series. This game can give competition to the likes of StarCraft. This game is a no-brainer. It does not take time to get used to the units. It has the same concept of Unit Battalions as BFME 1 , there is only one resource in the game..which is incidentally called Resources. The races have been shuffled. Rohan and Gondor are one race now. 3 new races are introduced, Elves, Dwarves ...
  • Pros: Campaign is epic, single player mods are playable again and again .   Nice graphics .
  • Cons: Buggy, very limited multiplayer options .  Naval warfare makes me puke .

You can either play as the protagonists (Elves, Dwarves and Humans) or the antagonists (Goblins, Orcs and Trolls). ...
  • Pros: Improvement over the original, Good use of LOTR Licence

  • Excerpt: "...and it's even better than the first one! This game is basically Lord of the Rings, but in strategy mode. You control an army, you can choose from many different races, such as Elves, Dwarves, Men, Mordor and others, and you must battle it out against your opponents on battlefields taken from the book! Some of these include Mordor, and even The Shire. Other features that where not present in the previous game are things such as better character customization, ...
  • Pros: More character customization, More Races .
  • Cons: Difficult at times .

  • Excerpt: "...is a Brilliant Sequel to the first Battle for middle earth and is more importantly great fun!! You can play as Mordor, Isengard, Men, Dwarves, Goblins and Elves allowing you to play the way you enjoy. A great new part is that you can create your own heros which in my opinion is great as fun you can give them 5 different powers of your own choice, choose how much health etc they have and also change their appearence! I have had this game for 2 years ...

excellent expansion

  • Summary: Before I bought this game, i borrowed it from a friend, just to get a feel as to whether i would enjoy the expansion or not. I quickly realized that it would be a great expansion so i decided to buy it. The new faction featured in this game, Angmar, is a very fun and creative faction to play as.

The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth 2 (PC): One of the best RTS around...

Beamer86, Dooyoo
5 December 2008
  • Summary: This really is an excellent RTS, if you're a fan of the Command and Conquer series and the Lord of the Rings films then this is a must buy. Its got a fairly basic engine; you build your base, defend your base then attack your opponent! Make no mistake, there is plenty of time to spend playing this game, the campaign modes are great fun and explain a lot of the stories that were left out when converting the books to screen.
  • Pros: Create-a-hero & campaign modes
  • Cons: Need a fairly powerful games machine to get the best out of the game.

A battle for the middle of the earth

3 November 2008
  • Summary: This pc game was around £15.00 when I bought it and it is well worth the money! The game is rated with a 12+, according to the box this is because of the violence that is contained in the game, I think it is because its a war game and does obviously entail killing people etc. The game I bought does say it it compatible with only windows XP but i've recently upgraded to windows vista and it installed and runs with no problems, which i'm very glad of as some of the other...

The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth 2 (PC): A good RTS

Gillper, Dooyoo
18 April 2008
  • Summary: This is simply a great RTS, probably not the best out there but it can rival some. The game is based on the fictional world of middle earth and it will transport you right into the middle of the great wars between good and evil. It will do this and to a very great effect. It still uses the same engine as the last game but the new factions and the new features make it a completely different game.
  • Pros: Sound, Gameplay
  • Cons: Repetitive, Graphics
