The Lord of the Rings: Conquest PS3 Review
29 May 2010
Excerpt: Star Wars: Battlefront was a well regarded series of online focussed games, which were praised for their use of the licence. The Lord of the Rings: Conquest uses the foundations set out by Pandemic’s own game to make a similar title based around a similarly lucrative and enduring universe.
Excerpt: Do you remember that bit in the Lord of the Rings trilogy when Gandalf's twin brother turned up to help electrocute the orcs outside the Black Gate? Or how about the scene where a small army of elves marched off a ledge to meet their fiery deaths in the Mines of Moria?

Excerpt: In a partnership with New Line Cinema, The Lord of the Rings: Conquest is an action-packed game created by the same Pandemic Studios team behind the best-selling Star Wars Battlefront and Star Wars Battlefront II titles. Set in J.R.R.
