Summary: Fun game, but online play was by far the best part. Its the Battlefield series based in the LOTR universe. Good times...until Electronic Arts pulled the plug on servers supporting online multiplayer on March 16, 2010 (14 months after game introduction). No multiplayer = no fun for this title.
Summary: Unfortunately, there were no recent reviews of Lord of the Rings: Conquest when I bought two copies to explain that Electronic Arts stopped supporting online play for this title back in March of 2010.
Summary: Originally I had hoped to play this game and platinum it. However, it is an inferior product, and I feel bad that it even bears the LOTR name. The single player campaign is dull, unimaginative and monotonous; before I finished playing through it once, I found myself bored with the game.
Summary: Pretty good game in and of itself - imagine Star Wars Battlefront in Middle-Earth. There is a big HOWEVER - Electronic arts have switched off the game servers for this game meaning that you can not play it online any more.
Summary: im disapointed with pandemic as there is a severe lack of depth in this game. may tolkiens soul rise up to smite them. As a huge fan of the books i was just expecting more. Save your money and dont buy this. everything about this stinks of ea games.
