Don't believe the hype!

Summary: Let's start with that I'm a huge fan of LOR. Loved the PS2 LOR games ex: Two Towers, Return of the King, and The Third Age. Part of why I recently acquired an XBOX 360 was in hopes of finding another cool LOR game. First of all I cannot believe the price of this game.. that sent me the mixed message that it must be great! The original MSRP is 59.99, why it is going for $100!? must be a supply demand issue. I got mine for $30 used off of Amazon.
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.
Summary: I was interested in this game when it came out, due to the promise of being able to make your own impact in the world of Middle-Earth. Unfortunately the promise is not quite fulfilled, but it is a fun enough game...on the DS, anyway. Essentially Conquest is a Middle-Earth version of capture-the-flag, but with a few things to make it more interesting, such as the ability to switch character types during battle, and of course the trappings of the Lord of the Rings world.
Beware: Don't buy thinking it will be like Star Wars BattleFront

Summary: I bought this game for my brother because he really liked 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. Third- Bosses are either too hard or too easy.
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...
I LOVE LOTR but the game is so so. Like Battlefront..eh

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.
