Summary: I purchased LotR Conquest because I was looking for an xbox 360 equivalent to Starwars Battlefront. While Battlefront is a sensational game, LotR Conquest is not. Let's start with the singleplayer. It's sometimes fun, mostly easy, and sometimes frustrating. I blew through both good and bad singleplayer campaigns with ease. They don't follow the story well. A few parts I literally died 100 times because of a save sequence right before the point that I died.
Summary: In a nutshell this game was pretty much like any hack n slash game like samurai warriors or a lord of the rings version of star wars battlefront. Sadly most of this game fun was within the online section of this game for the campaign mode is about 3 hours long if that. But now this game has been unplugged basically YOU CANNOT PLAY THIS GAME WITH XBOX LIVE ANYMORE. Same goes for the pc and ps3 version of this game.

Summary: Relive the epic battles of the War of the Ring in a not so epic game which follows the campaigns of forces of good from Helm's Deep to the Black Gate of Mordor. You can also play an alternative timeline where Sauron conquers all. If it weren't the LOTR, I'd probably loathe this game.
Summary: this game is very upsetting. one thing is that they give you and enemy units a large amount of health which makes it take a long time to kill each person but in the star wars battlefront series they gave everyone a resonable amount of health. next campaign is short and each level you do the same thing which is standing in a command post(has no look to it at all except a blue line that circles around the ground) to capture it but the worst thing is having to defend the...
Summary: I bought a used version of this game locally and wound up taking it back a few days later after having played through every level. I am a huge fan of Star Wars: Battlefront and, after having just read LOTR for the first time, was really stoked to play this. It was nothing like what it could have been. The long distance archery was fun, but the melee and sword fighting was completely lacking. It really is a button-masher once you get to hand-to-hand combat.
Summary: Um, where to begin. I downloaded the demo and completely loved it. Like other reviewers noted, it's like the star wars battlefront series. but unlike battlefront 2, there is not a time limit on your hero (that was the lamest thing about BF2 - sorry I digress). Anyway, the demo completely fooled me. this game is way too short and way too easy (at times). the soldier class is ridiculously weak. and i found that i could pretty much dominate the battlefield with the archer.
Summary: he term horrible gets thrown around a lot but in this case it deserves it and so much more. Its one of the worst games I have ever played and am shocked that must reviewers gave it between a 3 and a 4. It is unbelievably bad, I say that because somehow they took something that was a great game (battlefront II) and on a new more powerful system and years of work made it worse than they started with.
Summary: I really don't see how anyone could give this game a very high score. First off, the single player is pretty cool, but really short. The game has very nice graphics and the combat mechanics are pretty good. The balance of the game is the worse. Certain characters are much stronger than others. For example, the scouts are very strong because they can become invisible and then you can kill people.
Summary: I will start off by saying that I am a HUGE Lord of the Rings fan. When I heard about this game I was so excited. I was a huge fan of Battlefront and I was under the impression that combing the concept with LOTR would be great. Boy was I wrong. The combat in the game is is extremely clunky and often button mashing becomes boring. The levels are unoriginal and sequenced in a way that may frustrate some fans. In terms of single player replay, I find virtually none.
