Summary: I first played this game on the PS3, and then got it for myself on the 360. I loved it at first. It pulled elements from the movies all into a game that was similar to one of my most favorite games, Star Wars: Battlefront 2. The sad thing was my friend and I could pretty much complete the campaign in one night, and neither of us are hardcore gamers. After that, it became incredibly repetitive and boring.
Beware: Don't buy thinking it will be like Star Wars BattleFront

Summary: I bought this game for my brother because he really liked Star Wars Battlefront II for the playstation 2 and he loves the Lord of The Rings. And I was thinking that since this was new it would be much better than Battlefront, but I was wrong. Cons ------------------------------------------------------------------------ First- if you play quick match on two player you cant be on the same team. Second- the Campaign is short and boring.
Summary: Not enough action, didn't like the addition of the mages. They could have done so much better with this game but they didn't. The archers don't do enough damage, the arrows just keep going on forever, they leave behind a white streak in the air. The warriors have swords that can catch on fire? No. Stupid. Was a great game for the price but i think they ruined it. They could have definitely done better.
Summary: So Recently I saw that this game lord of the rings was coming out in stores, and decided I would have to get it, cause the old school games on the PS2 were so much fun playing different characters, leveling up, buying combos beating the game in an entire day with a couple of friends you know that sort of thing.

Summary: LOTR Conquest Review > > > > > Gameplay: Sp:(7/10) / Mp:(8/10) Singleplayer: 7/10 A solid campaign, but unless you start out with more than usual talent, you'll probably want to start out on the casual difficulty. Inexperienced players will likely be frustrated by the higher difficulties if they try them on their first time through MultiPlayer: 7/10 Overall similar gameplay to Pandemic's previous work in Star Wars: Battlefront, but with swords, bows, and fire in place of...

Summary: I LOVE the LOTR movie trilogy, and LOTR Battle For Middle Earth 2 for Xbox 360, but I was kinda disappointed with the game.. There's a delay between fighting, where if you do a fight combo, it waits a second or two between the end of the combo and the next move you can do, and its hard to turn after a fighting combo so you can fight someone else.
Summary: Hmmm. I'm not entirely sure this is how I wanted to start the gaming year 2009. I mean don't get me wrong, I was looking forward this game- which makes this a lot harder. On paper Lord of the Rings: Conquest looks like a great idea: take the format of the successful Star Wars Battlefront series and apply it to a franchise well known for its epic battles. Well, it succeeds- the battles are epic, combat feels pretty good, and there are plenty bad guys to wade through.
Summary: Lord of the Rings: Conquest has an interesting premise. It allows you to play through key battles from the movies in epic, cinematic environments. It also includes a "what if" option that lets you play an entire campaign as the bad guys. To add depth, it even has characters with different classes, trying to pass itself off as some sort of a RPG.
