not sure about this game. kinda like battlefront meets dynasty warriors. not a particular intriguing game. A LOT of button mashing. cool premise but not that great on the execution in my opinion. the graphics were so-so, the game itself is moved along by the story which limits the gameplay (unlike battlefront) and coupled with thumb killing, button mashing controls, the game seems to fall a little flat. it's worth a rent if you're a fan of the MOVIES but not a purchase, that's for sure. ymmv

Just could not get into this game. Lord of the Rings has got to be one of my all time favorite books/movies, maybe my hopes were set to high. The single player part was ok but for some reason I just could not get into the overall game. If you are into Lord of the Rings you should atleast give it a go.

I'm not the biggest lord of thr rings fan,but after playing lotr conquest things changed. The online experience is nothing short of awesome. There is the standard modes such as capture the flag (in this case ring),single or team deathmatch,But conquest mode is the most fun.In this mode u team up with other users and capture different teritories on the map, and at a certain point the highest scorer on the leading team gets a opportunity to play as a hero or vilan from the movies. There is also a Hero deathmatch option that puts good vs evil. This game could have come close to a 10 if not for the less than stellar visuals. Another thing that holds this game back is the fact that the campaign is too short and if you play it alone you can sometimes be overwhelmed by enemies.However if you choose to play the campaign with a friend things become alot more managable. To sum it all up Lord of the rings conquest is a game with two faces. If you are a online gamer then this game might be up your alley. If not this game is still worth taking a look at.
