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: EA STOP MAKING GAMES! I had my hopes up on this game and what do you know EA destorys another title. Don't waste your money on this game. Although if your 5 years old you may think it rules the world. Can somebody remake all the LOTR games please and make them worth playing.
Summary: If you are a lover of the Lord of the Rings anything then this game sounds cool. In reality it is not. The enemies are over powered leaving you to frantically attempt to run between the ranks of warriors. The camera is clunky and you will die most often because of that reason. Overall, the missions are frustrating. Being a hero from the series and playing as a regular character are nothing different.
Summary: The game play itself isn't bad. But I had expected this to be a LOTR type version of Star Wars Battlefront. It is not. You have a set amount of lives, there is no capturing areas aside from doing it for mission objectives. There is nothing like a galactic conquest mode, and even the single player instant action is all death match, and capture the "ring" stuff. Huge Let down.
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.
Conclusion: This game should have been amazing, but pandemic turned the great battlefront series into this pile of trash. Here is a list of things that are wrong with it: 1) Half the missions don't have anything to do with the films and the ones that do are changed horribly. 2) The voices are terrible. 3) Some of the classes are terribly over powered-ie mage can heal itself, block arrows, spam enemies with unblockable magic, ect.
