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: 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.
Summary: I was so looking forward to this game after playing previous EA versions on the PS2 (classic LOR games). This game sounded awesome - the ability to play in so many fantastic battles from the films and play as different classes (warrior, archer, mage etc).
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.
Summary: Is it really almost 6 years since the Lord of the Rings movies enthralled 99% of movie-goers? Unfortunately it is still 6 years of sub-par Middle-Earth based games. Conquest offers nothing new or original in terms of gaming.
