This game is amazing with so many moves to take down your enemy. It has maps from all three movies which is wonderful for any Lord of the Rings fans. They did a great job bringing the basics of Star Wars Battlefront into a Lord of the Rings look. It is a Ten on my scale and a must buy for any fans of Lord of the Rings. The best part about the game is the fact that you can take over just about any troll, ent, ladder, catapult, balista, etc.
I have to say, I had been waiting quite a long time for something like this game.
However, I was sorely disappointed. I was expecting a Star Wars Battlefront style interface, but forgot that EA had the rights to the Lord of the Rings games, which means it's simply a Lord of the Rings movie game with a little more freedom of movement. I would have thought EA would try something different, but I was mistaken. I recommend this game for the following people:
1. Those who have not played the LotR movie games by EA, as it ruins the fun with its monotony.
2. Those who have not played Star Wars Battlefront, because if you have, you might be disappointed and confused at the total switch of interface.
Or 3. Those who have played neither, as it would be new and fresh. A game is always more fun if you haven't played their better versions.
If I have offended anyone, I apologize. I know some die-hard LotR fans would probably be quite angry with this review. But let me say that I only find fault with the game because I've read the books, and I loved them.
And to be sure LotR: Conquest's mediocre rating was no fault of Pandemic Studios's, they did their job well. EA, however has used that same interface for every LotR game they've made.

As of March 2010 EA has shut down the servers for this mostly online-geared game! t0have do not u rent unless you do not have Xbox live! The single-player portion of this game just makes you hunger for the online experience, much like star wars battlefront. Aviod this game like a Gollum aviods bathing!
