Summary: After enjoying the various LOTR games on the PS2, I had hopes this game would be even better. The controls are very clunky, the objectives are vague, the graphics are not good at all, and the enemy tends to ridiculously hard in spots. My fiance and I played for an hour before we decided it wasn't our thing. I sold it a few days after receiving it.
Summary: I was gritting my teeth the entire time I played this game. It was made by the same people that made the great game Star Wars: Battlefront. So I thought it would be like that but in Middle Earth. Sounds great, right?! Or maybe not. The environments are completely unimaginative, repetitive, and very limited. I felt like I was confined in each level. The controls were also a dull point to me.
Battle for Middle Earth that is Vastly Inferior to Lord of Rings ROTK from the Last Generation

Summary: I recently rented this game from GameFly. If you're reading this review, hopefully you know that the online play is no more, which is sad. I got this game hoping it was going to be like the Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, a game I loved playing on my Nintendo GameCube. I enjoyed the Return of the King because it made hack and slash fun, you got multiplyers for good, excellent and perfect kills.
Summary: I can't stand the narrator barking orders at me every minute of the game. Drives crazy and stresses me out to the point that I can't enjoy the game.Stopped at second stage and haven't returned since.
Excerpt: Lord of the Rings : Conquest is an action/adventure game, released in 2009 the game allows you to play through the game as both the sides of evil and good, with the evil side letting you play as ogres and sauron, trying to stop the ring from being destroyed. The campaign is in two sections comprising of eight levels in the "war of the ring campaign" and seven in the "rise of Sauron" campaign.
Excerpt: Lord of the Rings games have been some of the better movie tie in game sof the past and this one looked set to be a great experience for fans of the films to live out the action at home. Unfortunately the game fails to deliver any immersive experience and you are left button bashing to fight off enemies to complete objectives that often involve little more than defending territory.
Excerpt: I recently acquired this game after seeing it at quite a bargain price. This was not a game I had heard of before, but became an impulse buy. Without spoiling too much, the game follows closely the theme of the films. Frodo must first of all succeed in tossing the rings into the fires of mordor. However if you manage to achieve this, then an alternate story line then opens up. One in which Frodo did not achieve his goal and so instead you then play on the side of evil.
