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. Honestly, I am surprised with this game because it has so many positive reviews on the internet. I have been playing this one for about eight months now, and it has provided me the best gaming experience of my life. In my perception, this game is very enjoyable, and it works so well on my computer. Well, this game is totally good especially if you love the movie Lord Of The Ring. The game itself has a strong gameplay and excellent artwork and music. Also, the controller works well, and the campaign mode was fun and entertaining, but it is too short to be fully enjoyed. All in all, this game is a must have for an Real-time Strategy fan. The best game ever!

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

An Intense RTS Game That Will Give You a Deep Strategy Experience

By Sam James

On Friday, July 18, 2014

Though The Battle for Middle Earth II was released several years ago, I still find it very interesting and enjoyable to play. Honestly, this game is way better than the first edition. The graphics and sound effects are just simply awesome. It has a multiplayer mode, so can have the opportunity to play with your buddies, and of course, it has a skirmish mode that adds to the longevity of the game. Moreover, there are new characters offered in these game as well new maps. Also, the gameplay is more intense than ever. I like its action-packed battles and its fantastic storylines from both good and evil factions. However, the concept of the game is quite common. It is just like any other strategy games out there. I think it lacks originality, but overall, The Battle for Middle Earth II is a well-rounded and intense RTS game that will put you in a deeper compound strategy experience. If you are an RTS gamer, don’t forget to add this one on your list.

Pros

  • There are new maps available
  • It has a better graphics and sounds

Cons

  • The game’s concept is quite common
