WARNING - NO ONLINE PLAY!
8 August 2010
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: First of, DON'T BUY THIS GAME! I bought the game yesterday and I'm already tired of it. The reason I bought the game was to play online with my friends. However, ONLINE DOESN'T WORK PERIOD! EA completely shutdown their servers and everything mid March. I buy it unsuspectingly being drawn by the back quote, "Epic Online Battles" when that is a complete LIE! The game is fun for only so many hours of gameplay and then your bored. The game is NOT a 1 player game.
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: 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.
Summary: I haven't even owned this game for a week and it has already hit the shelf of lost souls. It would probably be more exciting watching my dog try to play the game than to play it myself. It is a weak button masher, requiring virtually no skill or strategy. There is no character development, an unexciting story line, and sub-par game play. Every level feels like the one before it with a different background. The AI is horrible both for friendly units and foes.
Summary: I downloaded and played the demo of this game on my PS3 and was sorely disappointed. Combat is repetitive and boring. They try to allow you to switch roles after certain check points but the new characters and abilities you get to play with aren't really all that compelling or interesting. As a hack and slash adventure game fan I would recommend trying the demo out first to see if you actually like the set up.
Conclusion: this game is terrible so many game flaws its so rubbish and annoying i felt like chucking it in the trash it was so bad the lord of the rings game on PS2 is a million times better, EA really rushed this game too much what a disgrace -DO NOT BUY NO MATTER WHAT.
Conclusion: As the title states, I was extremely disappointed by the quality of this game. Having been a fan of previous lotr games I woud have thought that this would follow that trend - it didn't. The campaign was short, even with fighting on both sides, and the gameplay itself was very repetitive - using the same combinations over and over. The graphics were also poor on this console, similar to what you may expect on the Wii.
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 trying to hit mid air most of the time.
