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: The game does quite good in terms of graphics. You can use trolls, ents, heroes, and they can be a lot of fun, but the opportunities to do so don't come around nearly as often as they should. The gameplay is otherwise not even particularly fun, and annoying more often than not.
Conclusion: This game is the worst game I have played in a very long time. It is glitchy, has terrible graphics, the worst camera angles, but probably the worst thing is the controls. They are unresponsive and they have a habit of continuing to attack long after you stopped pressing the buttons so you end up...
