NO ONLINE SERVERS ANYMORE

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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
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!
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.
Excerpt: Having played both the PC and 360 version of thsi game I feel that you should buy the PC version. Whilst being an alright import with decent controls Halo Wars seemed to do it better. Te PC version offers hero and map customization and an expansion pack. Online play is also always booming whilst on the 360 I haven't been able to get a match for many years now as the online community is dead.
