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. More dissappointing, Amazon continues to advertise that it does have online play and none of the vendors add a note of warning.
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. The cut scenes do feature Hugo Weaving’s (Lord Eldenrod) voice, but they are extremely wordy. This detracts from the game. The online multiplayer is even worse.
