I'm sure alot of developers will start to port strategy games to the consoles after seeing how well Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth 2 performs on the Xbox 360. This is a solid title that offers plenty of fun for a summer game. This game has a very intuitive control scheme that makes everything easy to handle. You can control massive armys with no hassle what so ever. The reason it get's an 8 is because there is some FPS issues. I would give it an 8.5, but seeing as to I cant with Gamefly I guess an 8 will have to justify my review. This is a very good game and a must buy for strategy game fans.

For all you Lord of the rings fans this is the must rent game. this game is a mix between Age of Empires and Lord of the Rings. You control the army and conker lands. You choose between good force or evil force. My choice would be to start out as good just because it is the easier option. This is a very challenging game. You have to build empires and armies to rule the game board. The cool thing is that you can have mystical creatures like trolls, eagles, and dragons. If you haven't played this game yet you need to Right now!!!!!!!
