Summary: I got this game for Christmas and have played through it and was not impressed, The thing that bugged me most was the combat system, where for instance, you are fighting a troll and you have to use a certain move, they have you use the left analog stick, that you also use to move your character, to direct your sword strike. I do not know why the did not use the right analog stick which in most games is used to move the camera, and has absolutely no use in this game.
Summary: The fact that it's Warner Brothers and not EA alone is a huge turn-off because EA has done extremely well with the LotR games. The last-gen graphics are not like the beautiful comic-book style graphics some games use on platforms today, but rather are rough and cartoony like the game isn't even associated with the actual trilogy.
Summary: (NOT INCLUDING BATTLE FOR MIDDLE EARTH 1,2, and3 WICH I STILL PLAYEver since the Return of the King, which was amazing and had the replayability of 3-4 WHOLE years over and over, the games have gone down hill. Third age was great but a bit tedious. Conquest wasnt very good as it tried to port star wars battlefront for lotr and failed considering how amazing battlefront was. This looks below decent because the graphics, and it looks like it will have no replayability.
