5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a game I actually like... January 14, 2009
By Matt
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
So, I've been playing for a while, and I actually think this is a pretty good game. I haven't finished it yet, but am on my way. I think the whole interface is pretty good, makes good use of the keyboard/mouse combo...definitely not a game you'd want to use a controller for...at least me. So far it's been plenty fun, and pretty challenging actually. I mean, once you get the hang of it you won't have any problems progressing through the game. Graphics are also pretty good, and runs quite well on my 1680x1050 monitor with all settings set to high...that's more than I can say for some games I've recently purchased. This is actually probably one of the best game's I've played on my PC for a while now...at least a few month's or so. Most of the game's I've been trying out were just failures. I also like how they incorporate scenes from the movie into the game as to show you what's going on. I've never personally played a Lord of The Rings game before, but after playing this I'm thinking I need to go back and get some of them. This is a great game to have fun and pass time, and it definitely gives you the Lord of The Rings feel. Many different characters to choose from, whether you want to be a Warrior, Mage, Scout, Archer, etc, and each have their own special attacks/moves. If I had to compare it to a game I'd have to say it's quite like Warrior's Orochi, which was another game I really enjoyed on PC.

You also get to play as Heroes, and Villian's throughout the game, such as, Aragon, Frodo, Gandolf, Saruman, Sauron, and Wormtongue. It's really quite fun to play as all the different characters. The online multiplayer, though I haven't played too much, is also pretty fun. I'd give it a 4/5. Has a few different modes, so surely everyone will find one they like.

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
When Lord of the Rings Return of the King game was released a few years ago, I was impressed and immersed in its visuals. However, the game was so difficult; I was unable to complete most of the levels and gave up. At the same time, I wished I could depart from the goals of each mission and just spend some time running around the map either watching the fight or sniping at some orcs.

What I REALLY wanted was Lord of the Rings battlefield 42 as I enjoyed the way one could move freely about and engage / not engage the enemy and die and be respawn again without having to start over each time.

Lord of the Rings Conquest follows in that tradition and I certainly felt as part of that imaginary Tolkien world of the Jackson movies. The blue skies of the crushed Osgiliath, the dark mines of Moria with its vertigo crevasses and steep staircases sans guardrail plus other locations thrusts one deep into the movies' landscape. Oliphants lumber through the landscape of the Pelennor Fields map, and arrayed armies stand ready for deployment on the peripherals of other levels. One cannot venture in to attack the oliphants , though, as they are JUST a stage trick, designed to complete the atmosphere of a large, active battlefield of which the player is just a small part of.

Now, as a casual gamer who does singleplayer, I will only relate the experience from that point of view.

One selects and spawns in as either an archer, Mage, scout and warrior type character. I found the archer to be the easiest and friendliest for my relaxed gameplay style, followed by the mage.

Archery requires no knowledge of physics adjustments for windage, distance or any of that junk. Point at the target and the arrow hits it instantly at flat, sniper rifle speed trajectories.

3.0 out of 5 stars Amazon Information is Incorrect for this UPC March 5, 2009
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The UPC related to this Amazon listing is for the Xbox360 version of this game. We have attempted to correct this through Amazon but they stated that thay cannot verify the website information we provided as proof.

As a fairly large Marketplace seller on Amazon, we mass list our items using the UPC, and Amazon provides the item details. PLEASE NOTE that if this item is purchased through us, The Movies and More Store, it WILL NOT BE for the PC version of the game.

Hopefully, we will be able to convince them to correct this issue soon.

3.0 out of 5 stars Saving Middle Earth has never been so...dull? June 18, 2009
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Since Lord of the Rings first hit the silver screen as epic, three-part blockbuster, EA Games has been attempting to give gamers the opportunity to relive the story from both main character, commander, and now everyday Joe points of view. And who wouldn't want to jump into the action, kill some orcs, and avoid getting smashed by ginormous oliphants?

In the latest titles, Lord of the Rings conquest, you get to play as one of those soldiers you saw in the movies scurrying out of the way from balls of fire and following studs like Faramir in combat. You even have the opportunity to jump in the shoes of the heroes like Gandalf and Legolas when things get hairy. Gamers have the choice of being and archer, warrior, scout, or mage (wizard), each having their own special abilities and complimenting other classes nicely. One critical aspect about controlling a unit is that you are in fact dependent on the other AI players to assist you, though this does lead to some criticisms about the game itself.

Before getting into the negatives, let me throw out a few kudo's. First, the environments are pretty cool. It was awesome being around lumbering oliphants about to crush you and seeing what exactly made Minas Morgul glow that spectacular green/blue color. It was nice having options to ride a horse, fire a catapult, and pull levers as well. Probably my favorite part was raining down fire arrow death on uruks trying to siege Helms Deep. I probably could have done that for hours alone if my team mates were more plentiful/effective.

Which brings me into my criticism of the game.

4.0 out of 5 stars overall an intense game
I think the graphics are beatiful; it's pretty intense playing, beacuse it immerses you in chaotic battles, which makes it quite realistic and thrilling. I only play campaigns. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun, not amazing
This game seems to be inspired in the EA's "The Return of the King". It adds the Star Wars Battlefront modality of having multiple characters infinitely respawnable. Read more
