Rated 10 out of 10 by lordoftheringsfan An unbelievable game
This game is what you call a cant miss, addicting game. I mean seriously, in what other game can you play as a massive elephant, troll, or an ent!!!!??? The graphics are stunning and the environments look completely like they did from the movies. The controls are not fantastic like everything else in this game but after a while they become easy to use and they work well with the game. The storyline is a bit different from the movies but in this game you get to fight in places never in other LOTR games, like The Shire, The Mines of Moria, Minas Morgul, and more! I gave this game a 10 in length because although both of the single player stroies are short, the online will keep you entertained for months. Also, the co-op is a blast and you can play in instant action modes. The sound is great and with surround sounds it actually makes you feel like you are right besides your warrior. You are missing alot if you dont get this game so take my advice and buy it!
Rated 10 out of 10 by hillbillygamer This game rocks.
Any fan of star wars: battlefront, lorda of the rings, battlefield, or enemy territory : quake wars will like this game. Lord of the rings conquest is basically battlefront with a midevil feel. challenge:Many diffuculty settings allow all skill levels be able to play. There is also a training mode which is nice. controls: The controls are typically easy to learn. Graphics/animation: I have not seen a single framerate or texture issue. The character sprites are pretty detailed interface: Splitscreen multiplayer works perfectly. My only two wishes in this catagory are for 4 player splitscreen and for ea to put back up the online servers. length: This game has two story modes, one for evil and one for good, both are entertaining and total last for about six hours, depending on difficulty settings. There is also instant action and downloadable add-on content. sound: The sound is awesome. You'll hear bloodcurling shreaks as you slaughter orcs. storyline: I really wish that they added something new tothe story. The cutscenes are parts of the movies which is cool.
Rated 9 out of 10 by kylenator_99 THE ONE RING AND THE GAME TO RULE THEM ALL
wanted this game really bad when i mean bad i mean super bad i showed the trailer to my dad then he wanted it and his birthday came up he got it and we were all happy we were really exited i could not wait we put it in and then we played two player it was terrible we did not well my dad did not last a whole minute then we figured out why we were playing to hard levels so we licked the shire and it was a whole lot better. the last bad thing about two player is that you cant be on the same team. when you first get the game i recommend you play story mode because you learn the controls better if you become good you can become a warrior archer wizard a guy with two knives also the other good thing about story mode is that on the first level you get to learn who the good people are to play as faster i recommend this game to some one who want's another battle front game and want a big sword fighting game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by stringsix this is an must have
Some people might not like this game because it has a short history line, but hey call of duty 4 is the same way. But call of duty made it big for online play. And lord of the rings conquest has online as well not as good as call of duty 4 but it's a great online game play experience. The graphics are good, sound and controls are great, you can easily get the hang of it. The reason I gave it a 10/10 in challenge is because of the trophies. The online trophies are hard to get, one example is get 25 kills with the warrior in one life in any ranked server. That trophy is a pain in the behind but keeps you trying to get it. Another online feature that I liked is the co-op gameplay, you can play the actual story online with up to 4 players, that's sweet. If you are a lord of the rings fan get this game you would want to play it over and over again. See you guys online.
Rated 10 out of 10 by baseball guy A definite must buy!!
LOTR Conquest is a game everyone must buy!! The stroyline is a blast and fighting for evil is an aspect featured in very few video games. The length is not too short but the online makes up for every single weak area in this game. The graphics are amazing and the sound is unmatched by any. The different modes for online will match any player's desires. The co-op is great and there is nothing like killing orks with your friends in the same room. People complain about the stroyline but there are all the battles from the movies and panemic throws in some more battles just for extra fun!! This is a major hit and i definetely reccomend this movie for a gamer of any category. LOTR Conquest features many different fighting moves. The only complaint I have about this game is the length of singlepalyer, but it is not horrible like i already mentioned.
Rated 10 out of 10 by metsfan AWESOME!!!!
I cant believe how many people are insulting this game. Not only was this game awesome when it came out, but but now add ons are available that add more maps for online which are sick and new heroes. Also, hero arenas are now available to face off one hero against another. Since having this game since the day it came out, this game has continually getting more and more fun. The graphics are stunning and the music cant be matched by any other video game with surround sound. I gave this game an 8 in challenge because although both story lines can be easily beaten, online games can be very challenging and the trophies are extremely hard, such as killing 10 enemies with a satchel bomb in one live. Although many people say that the controls are weak, I personally love the controls. With every thing in this game, why wouldn't you buy it? It's great!
Rated 10 out of 10 by metsfan an absolutely fantastic game!!
Conquest has to be one of the best games i have ever bought for the PS3. I will start with the down sides of this game. Frist of all, the controld need some polishing. Although you do get used to them after a while of playing, they are confusing, especially if you are a fan of shooting games. I dont know why people have problems with the stroyline. It is the Lord of the Rings movie battles plus more!!!! What isn't there to like about it? The stroyline is a little short but the online and the co-op stroy modes cover that up. There are numerous different modes for online play and finally there is a game with co-op!!! Another serious upside of this game is the soundtrack. With, the music from the movie, it really tunes this game up and makes the battles much more fun. All in all i think if you like sword or gun games LOTR Conquest is a must buy!!!
Rated 1 out of 10 by Ravenlord A conquest lost before it begins......
I downloaded and played the demo of this game on my PS3 and was sorely disappointed. Combat is repetitive and boring. They try to allow you to switch roles after certain check points but the new characters and abilities you get to play with aren't really all that compelling or interesting. As a hack and slash adventure game fan I would recommend trying the demo out first to see if you actually like the set up. I found it rather mediocre and would suggest other titles such as Ninja Gaiden or Heavenly Sword as alternatives if you haven't yet already played those. If you're in the mood for adventure Drake's Fortune is also a high recommendation. This game is really mostly fan service to people who are LOTR's fanatics. The story is nothing new and the ideas have been done before in other similar titles to better effect.
Rated 10 out of 10 by MetalHead One game to rule them all.......
this is a great game. graphics and sound are not the best but it defenetly has a promising storyline. the challenge is great only if you play it on heroic or legendary, casual is just for beginners. so if you get this game try to beat it on heroic first since you cant play it on legendary until you beat both story lines good and evil. now there might be some parts in the game that you might get frustrated with but keep trying but try with a different class, it makes a difference. online i think is the best thing in this game. has many modes and you can even play the original story from single player in co-op gameplay. i'm not sure how mane players can join in online co-op but its verry cool. if you are a lord of the rings fan you should defenetly buy or at least rent this game in will blow your mind.
