Summary: OMG this game its boring!! Im a huge LOTR fan, and this one just sucks.... compared to LOTR the return of the king it just sucks.... graphics sucks, gameplay and story its boring, the action is very lame... i defenetly dont recomend it...
Summary: Lame mechanics, lame game play, same fights as every other game. The only LOTR game that I actually enjoyed has been Battle for Middle Earth. This game feels very unfinished. The camera is super annoying in battle as it does not follow you, you have to move the camera while trying to stay alive...lame. I got through the first campaign and had NO desire to play anymore of it. I'm glad I borrowed this and did not buy it.
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 was so pumped for this game when it came out because the demo was so fun. But when i had the game it was the worst game EVER!! The campaign took me 2 hours to beat, gameplay is repetitive and only as good as the demo, and my disk was broken and player 4's screen would always be screwed up. I sold this game to ebgames 1 week after i had it. It not worth it to even buy for 5 dollars DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY!!!!!!
Summary: Lord of the Rings Conquest is a mediocre Dynasty Warriors rip off set in the LOTR universe. The classes of characters (Warrior, Archer, Scout, & Mage) are unbalanced, bland and frankly boring to play. The graphics in this game look slightly better than ps2. When you actually do win it is more a result of luck than skill as the combo chains are sloppy and not designed with precision targeting in mind.
Conclusion: After seeing this game (and subsiquentially buying it) I became quite excited at the prospect of a LOTR-esque Battlefront, after returning home and eagerly awaitning my first mission to commence I realsied this game was awful. Firstly; Graphically it was not great, which asothers have stated can be forgiven if the gameplay is good, een if it does make your eyes bleed after 10 minutes of playing.
Excerpt: Terrible game! Bad graphics, boring, repetitive gameplay, short single player, poorly executed multi player. I enjoy the films and have read the book, so I am a bit of a Lord of the Rings fan but this game was just bad!
