5.0 out of 5 stars ONE RTS TO RULE THEM ALL August 16, 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When I gave up computer gaming for the cheaper and more simple world of console gaming I had one regret- stratgy games. They are my alltime favorite form of video gaming and I knew that they were next to impossiable to find and translate on a console. The last real time stratgy game I remember on a console was a port of Red Alert 2 on the old Playstation. When I heard LOTR Battle for Middle Earth was coming to the 360 I was hopfull but still afraid it wouldn't work- but I was happilly wrong. The controller works GREAT- not quite as good as a mouse but it is the next to the best thing. In fact one can argue that the camera control works better witht he 360 than the pc.

All that aside this is also just agreat game. It is very balanced and a lot of fun. The cpu is smart and tough and gives quite a challange to you. But of course the real deal is this game on Xbox live. It is a lot of fun and there is a lot of challange. I cannot reccomend this game enough. I just now pray that the upcoming C&C game will also be on the 360. PLEASE ea make it so.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just OK July 10, 2006
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Another highly anticipated game for me, but yet another game that you feel slightly disappointed with. EA has a bad habit of making games that just do not live up to the hype and this unfortunately is one of them.

The graphics are fairly good until you get a lot of your armies on the screen at the same time. It really gets choppy with the more you have. Many quick graphics pauses. The small map that shows the entire region is almost pointless. As another reviewer said, if you have one army off by itself, good luck seeing the blue dot on that map to find them. I am not color blind and have very good vision and I could not see it most of the time.

The controls to do many things seem cumbersome. I never played this on a PC, but I would bet PC style controls probably would be better versus many menus to traverse.

Game play itself is sort of fun. However, I find some of it almost too easy and brainless. Unfortunately, as long as you are willing to take the time, you could get through many levels by just continously creating armies and attacking until everything is dead. You really do not need to do anything special or use any special magic. The enemy is usually too easy as well. If you retreat and back away, many if not most will not come after you. Again, if you have the time, just do that and keep building armies until everything is dead.

I really think this game is just OK. Not worth the $60 and not as good as it should be on a next generation console. Though that really seems to be the trend so far with most new games.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre July 9, 2006
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

Now those games had character, it made you think, it made you strategize. In a game like Homeworld, you could never win with out capturing enemy ships. In Command and conquer, it was about resource gathering and key defensive placements.

After playing LOTR extensively the last few days, I havent yet figured out what sets it apart. It is too generic. Its just about make a lot of cheap melee units, and send them en masse to rush the enemy positions.

Finer points of a RTS such as defensive placements, resource domination, specialty units, etc are available, but due to the way the game is set up, you cant really utlize them to the full effect.

Lets go in depth shall we?

I was skeptical about game control issues using a XBox 360 controller as opposed to the trusty mouse on a computer. The interface is about 30% as efficient as compared to using a mouse or having short cut keys or the lot as experienced on a computer.

The Minimap (called the "Palantir" is very vague, you can not zoom in and out on the palantir and you can not issue move commands through the palantir. So most of the times, you will see blue colored smudges which indicate your units or red colored smudges which indicate enemy units. Now these smudges are prominent only when you have about 2 or 3 units in an area.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Console RTS July 25, 2006
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Let me start by saying im a huge rts fan, if only i could have all those hours back, never learn i guess. Ok down to business, when i fired up LOTRBFME 2 i immediately went online and played a couple matches ranked and unranked. I prefer to play unranked cause you get a lot more variety of players and not just the ones who are in it for the rankings. The ranked part is only beneficial for those who want to keep track of all their stats like how many wins and losses and how many kills etc. I meen if leaderboards are your thing more power to you. The fact that you can talk smack while your ents are pummeling someones fortress is great adding some deinate competition factor i ad hours of fun playing online alone. The ea server worked very well the games were never had too much lag or any boots. Sometimes when both sides would have massive amounts of units onscreen there would be a hardly noticeable lag. There still is a good amount of strategy though most players do a building rush along with the typical build more units than the other and keep attacking strategy. The fact that walls are expensive and deiffucult to rebuild and are somewhat weak kind of makes it hard for the defensive player who likes to build a nice base and wear down the enemy. But the game still has a lot to offer as far as variety is concerned there are alot of races with different strengths and weaknesses so learning the goods and bads of each while developing a strategy to exploit the strenghts of your race adds replay value. There are a few hangups managing units is difficult youll find yourself ordering your entire army just to kill a single enemy squad, very hard grouping of units makes it very difficult. Read more ›
