I'm mean really!?! People thought it was bad? I thought this game was amazing. The AI was decent, the graphics were above standard, and the controls were a lot easier than poeple might say. I also liked the instant action mode, and the 2 campaigns were interestingly addicting to finish. The only noticablely bad was that the camera was always going in a direction so that your caracter was facing the screen, but you can fix that at the options menu. Very good, but not quite perfect.

After seeing the other reviews i was very confused, Sure the game doesn't have state of the art graphics and it is a button masher game, but this game is still by far the best LoTR game out. Even without beautiful graphics and intense complicated game play, LoTR: Conquest still has great re-play value. What the others didn't realize is this game is meant for you to learn the ropes for good and evil chars in single player then go online and play with people because in my experience the real fun happens online in the "EA Nation" not in single player.
Honestly if someone can't even try all aspects of a game and see that this game takes more then just button mashing when playing online they shouldn't write a review on it.
All in all this is a great game i highly suggest renting it and if your a real LoTR fan, buy it =)

Alright, Lord of the Rings:Conquest, hands down, great game. This is exactly like Star Wars Battlefront, all about capturing the command post and basically just owning every orc in site. It's actually pretty sweet, I love being the mage because he has a giant energy shield to guard u and can heal. he also shoots lighting strikes at at least 2 targets. Another thing that's like Battlefront is the thing where you get enough kills so that you can become a hero. It's sweet, you can be gandalf, faromir, legolas, eowyn(girl who killed the witch king)gimli(occasionally) and Aragorn. My favorite is probably Aragorn, because you can do special attacks with all of them, but his are the best and strongest. You can shoot the green ghosts at the enemies, which owns. As I already said, this game is crush city basically. It rules. I've played it several times, and for once, in a lot of these type games, the story doesn't suck. Buy/Rent this game, and you won't be disappointed.
