A good time waster

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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Excerpt: The lord of the rings movies have come and gone and so have some good games. Years later EA have released the LOTR Conquest a Battlefield/ Star WArs Battlefront type game. Gameplay involves two faction on a map with a number of map points or flags.
Lord of the Rings deserves better games as Pandemic disappoints yet again.

Excerpt: Lord of the Rings: Conquest I think I've said it way too many times now, but licensed games suck generally. There have been exceptions but yadda yadda yadda. It's been said before so I won't go on about it again.
