LotR conquest

I really had fun on the splitscreen although the game is incredible easy and short that way. Solo play is a slight bit more challenging and online play is the same as every ps3 online game. i found the controls to be more and more fun as i learned them and the game was equally as fun if not more so the second time around. The four basic player classes are horribly balanced on the online play but for taking down the computer AI they work well. I may have only had the game three days and i beat if four times but i may rent it again just for the fun you and a buddy can have with the splitscreen.

I found this game to be very fun. Sure, its a bunch of button smashing throughout the whole game,but that doesn't stop it from being great.

The Good:This game has an excellent storyline[in my opinion]of both good and especially evil.
The game's controls are simple and easy to use with cool combos to kill your enemies with.
The heroes are pretty good,I think that being able to play as Sauron is a cool improvement from other LOTR games.
For vehicles on good you can play as Ents,and as bad you can play as Trolls.They are REALLY powerful,and can heal themselves and others,but they do have their weaknesses.
The multiplayer I found the best part of the game. It's easy to get kills as archer,if your skilled with targeting,or a mage with their firewalls.Scouts are good since they can instant kill enemies with their Backstab move.And warriors,well pretty much just run in there and start hackin away!

The Bad: It's not the greatest in graphics[but then again we're just in it for the evil campaign,right?]
It has some issues with connection problems on multiplayer[as thats what I've seen.]
The lives thing on the campaigns can get annoying if you have trouble on certain parts.
It is actually quite easy,at least on heroic.

Other than that,I think this is the best Lord of the Rings war type game in the series.I strongly reccomend trying it.

This game is one of the best i have played in years, the game play is good, the graphics is what i like most about this game, the only down side, is the story line, its to short, i would of like a bigger story line, but all in all its a great game, especially online mode, it is great, all the minigames are fun to do with other players, so i give this game a 7/10.
