  • Excerpt: You might be wondering how Pandemic Studios' Lord of the Rings: Conquest stacks up against Pandemic Studios' Star Wars: Battlefront, seeing as they're basically the same game from the same studio but featuring different iconic universes. Short answer: Whatever, this is crap.

VGChartz
15 March 2009
  • Excerpt: Of all the major book series' which arduously make the voyage from novels to films and even to videogames, Lord of the Rings is probably the most notable. As a videogame series, it has seen varying types of games with varying success. The series has included hack and slash, RTS, and even RPG titles. Lord of the Rings: Conquest falls into the hack and slash category, while having the play mechanics of the Star Wars: Battlefront games.

  • Conclusion: class each bring different skills to the fight, with each possessing a powered-up “special” such as a flaming sword for the warrior or a three-arrow shot by the archer. Lord of the Rings: Conquest effectively gives gamers an epic sense to each battle, which is broken up into smaller objectives before a final resolution.

Lord of the Rings: Conquest (Xbox 360) Review

2 March 2009
  • Excerpt: Conquest is Pandemic’s latest concoction using the Battlefront formula. Take 2 parts warring armies, add 1 part securing control points, and add 1 part successful franchise and you get a game that fantasy geeks can brag to sci-fi geeks about. This game takes the familiar story of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and puts you right smack dab in the middle of the battles. After completing the Good campaign you can then take on the Evil campaign.

The Lord of the Rings: Conquest Review

  • Excerpt: Do you remember that bit in the Lord of the Rings trilogy when Gandalf's twin brother turned up to help electrocute the orcs outside the Black Gate? Or how about the scene where a small army of elves marched off a ledge to meet their fiery deaths in the Mines of Moria? Nope, we don't remember these things happening in the films either; however, they certainly do happen in LOTR: Conquest, and the game is all the more enjoyable for it.

  • Excerpt: With the movie trilogy long finished for six years, you might wonder why a game that allows you to recreate all the iconic battles from the films has come along so late in the day. Gandalf only knows…It may be beyond fashionably late, but the title brings some neat tricks to the table that Tolkien fans will undoubtedly enjoy.

  • Excerpt: Star Wars: Battlefront minus the blasters. That’s a pretty accurate summary of The Lord of the Rings: Conquest, though I don’t think my editor would approve of me turning in a six-word review. It’s not surprising the two games are so similar considering Pandemic Studios developed them both.

Game Over Online

  • Excerpt: In The Lord of the Rings: Conquest you’ll relive the epic battles from Peter Jackson’s movie trilogy, opening with the defense of Helm’s Deep and culminating in the final battle at The Black Gate. When you successfully complete the campaign you’ll unlock an all-new “Evil” campaign that presents a “what if” scenario, that being what if the Nazgûl resurrected the Witch King who was then able to kill Frodo before he could destroy the One Ring?
