LOTR The Battle for Middle Earth II is an extremely good RTS game. Its campaign is unique, and the graphics and the visuals are very outstanding.

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

Create and control your army in the vast Middle Earth

This release has the following modes: On the one hand we have the two single-player campaigns, one for the forces of evil and one for good. Artistic presentation of these battles is very good and you can recognize that it is based on the film by standing ten meters from the monitor. Each campaign has eight scenarios that take us about an hour each, giving us, if mathematics serves me, sixteen hours alone in this mode. The objectives of each stage are nothing to shout: destroy and conquer, all based on how many resources we put together and we do so quickly. At least the campaign of the dark forces have a couple of nice details, like attacking the Shire and see the hobbits burning in the flames of our dragons, or massacre the good of Tom Bombadil.For those who want to try something more "extreme" strategically speaking, is the War of the Ring mode, where we see a map of the earth mediadonde the idea the idea is to advance our fichitas shift to crossing with the enemy, where we the two typical choices: go into battle or let the machine automatically resolve it.
- battles possibilities are numerous due to the large number of units there.
- This game has more units, more enemies, more missions, more of everything than its predecessor
- to interaction with the elements on the map it is almost zero in the game mode War of the Ring
