See the whole of Middle-earth when you play this exciting strategy game

I am not into reading comic books or novels. But when these books are brought to life through movies, I take time to watch them in cinemas. One of the film adaptations that I enjoyed was The Lord of the Rings trilogy. The novel was created by the famous J. R. R. Tolkien. What I like about the game version is that it does not only include the content from the movie but also those from other novels by Tolkien relating to Middle-earth. There are also new factions that were not available during the original game that makes it more exciting. There are new heroes introduced in this release but you can still choose factions from the earlier game. The option to select if you want to play for the good or evil campaign is an added bonus. I like going into battle and using my favorite heroes particularly the Witch King and Aragorn. If you love the book or the movie, you will also enjoy the game version.

Pros

  • Multiplayer suite for one-on-one or teams
  • Choose from good or evil campaign

Cons

  • Armies made during battle dies after war

LOTR: The Battle for the Middle Earth

This game is an adaptation from the movies and books of the Lord of the Rings. This game takes up some scenes from both the movie and the book. Its storyline is very good and interesting as it gives the real picture behind the plot. Tolkien created a world known as the Middle Earth with the main intention of making it a peaceful and prosperous world. There follows evil invaders who have bad intentions of taking over the Middle Earth and rule the whole world with their dark magic. At this point the game presents us two factions i.e the good and the bad side. On the good side you plays as Gandolf, Glorfield or even the forces of Aragon, Gimli and Galadriel to fight against the evil side. You can also play as Sauron and his minions like Saruman, Wormtongue or Nazugul to glorify the wicked side.

The graphics, special effects like visuals and sound are very good. The environment makes you really feel as if you are in the world Tolkien created, Check and enjoy as you play the sites like the Mines of Moria, Rividel and the Siege of Dol Guilder to see the kind of magic world Tolkien created.

Pros

  • The graphics and special effects are quite good
  • The adaptation from the original work is quite good

Cons

  • The game can be very addictive

"Battle for Middle Earth II" explores the North waged wars, known as the southern wars that give

By Pablo Conde Ferrer

On Tuesday, January 26, 2016

The single player mode, although somewhat short, consists of two distinct campaigns: we are in a commanding troops well and the other will try to bring hordes of evil to victory. This is appreciated, as the way forward in both armies, despite based on the usual principles of strategy-games, quite different in both cases. Eight are in each case the missions that we will emerge triumphant to finish the basic campaign, and where the difficulty will be increasing, seeing the difficulty curve somewhat softened by the mini-tutorials that will guide us to the beginning of missions containing new management.

The heroes that we generate on our strengths and we accompany each mission will be a great incentive when carrying out our tasks, as each has different skills and powers the rest. These are the only troops that we select individually, and with them access to a menu with unique characteristics.

The achievements (apart from the usual achievements awarded by the end of campaigns) will be achieved by completing each and every one of the side missions that we are raised in each chapter of the game

Pros

  • Possibility to enjoy an assortment of game modes
  • Good work in the sound effect

Cons

  • There deficient textures, but not all
