NO ONLINE SERVERS ANYMORE

Christopher Estes, Amazon
16 May 2014
  • Summary: I expected to be able to login and play head to head against another player but sadly I was shot down from the start and can't relive the moments when I first got my hands on this game. Overall, the campaign is good but in long periods of time it is very easy to win with a large garrison of troops.

Great game, but servers got shut down.

  • Summary: This was one of my favorite games a few years ago, but I recently decided to play it again and the servers were down :(. Even though this game is amazing, you cannot play online or even system link, which takes most of the fun out of the game...I give it a three because about 90% of the game took place online...you can also only get about 15 achievements because it has no online.

THE GAME LET ME DOWN....

Isaac L. Montgomery "Demonike", Amazon
28 March 2007
  • Summary: A true gamer can tell if he/she likes the game by the end of the first level of the game. I must say that I am very dissappointed. The A. I. of the units are stupid. You can order a unit to go attack to a certain spot, and lets say that they are done roaming to a certain spot, a enemy such as archers can shoot them, and your units will just stand there and not attack until you order them to, meaning you have to babysit your units or they could possibly die without even...

Mediocre

Kaushik Lodh, Amazon
9 July 2006
  • Summary: LOTR 2 for Xbox 360 leaves a person with mixed feelings. It looks good and sounds good. But there are some quintessential problems which might leave a dedicated gamer dissatisfied. I am heavily in to RTS (Real Time Strategy), Its my favorite genre, followed by RPG (role Playing games), not much in to FPS (First Person Shooters). I remember starting off with the RTS classics, Tiberian sun, Red alert 2, homeworld, etc, moving on to Generals, warcraft 3, etc.

Poor Quality

Pen Name, amazon.co.uk
30 March 2013
  • Summary: Well I'm very disappointed with this product firstly because the game hardly works when played, it's constantly lagging and it makes the game virtually unplayable. I do take into account that the game is preowned but being a gamer for nearly 8 years and buying many preowned games in the past from GAME and Gamestation i've had next to no issues with them.

No Online Servers

Leo Mylchreest, amazon.co.uk
18 February 2012
  • Summary: I know it's an old game, but EA have taken the online servers down so no multiplayer! The campaign was okay, but not as good as any Command & Conquer game or even RUSE or End War. If your an RTS fan & a LOTR fan you will probably enjoy it!

More hack and slash than RTS

Wally Wonker, amazon.co.uk
28 July 2011
  • Summary: Having been spoilt on the PC total war games, perhaps i shouldn't of expected so much from this game. I read the reviews on the gamer sites and many gave great scores so i thought it would be perfect to get a RTS game on the xbox. The problem i have with this game is its more hack and slash quick action that RTS. The best part of RTS is pausing the game, setting your army up in formation, spending time building up your base, creating troops etc.

Nothing to see hear

John Doe, amazon.co.uk
14 July 2006
  • Summary: (Deliberate typo!) This game did nothing to remind of the great LOTR movies, the cinematic feel just isn't there, despite the 'new line cinema' logo being slapped around here and there. The in game voices also somehow fail to create any sort of atmosphere. Graphics do not a game make but the highly pixilated shimmering shadows that everything casts really spoil the games look and reduce the clarity of visuals, especially during battle, where the game suffers from frame...
