Lord of the Rings: Conquest
Straying even farther from the Story...
This game is one that made me mad A LOT, and I'm not at ALL an angry gamer. Basically your either defending or on the offensive. Both have leverage on each other. You will encounter annoying deaths such as not being able to get up once knocked over by an enemy Warrior or being picked up and dropped to your demise by a Nasgul. If you want a LOTR game that is like the movies or books, this isn't it. Some fun comes in when you get to play as notable heroes (or villains) such as Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, Gandalf, Saruman, and even Sauron. Their are two campaigns: the War of the Ring which follows the heroes fighting Sauron's armies in places like Mina's Tirith, Osgiliath, Helms Deep, and even the beautifully looking Mines of Moria. The other campaign is the Rise of Sauron which is an alternate story asking the question: what if Frodo didn't destroy the Ring. In that campaign you get to rain destruction on every living human, dwarf, or elf you can reach. If you just want to kick back and perform combo moves on Orcs, get this game, if you want a LOTR game that follows the story and delivers the same jaw dropping experience the films succeeded at, don't get this game.
Fun but didn't last.
This game was fun, but the only beef i had with it is that there was no other thing to do other then the campaign, the campaign was really fun and awesome to play with my brother but ended rather quickly, I think the game is worth 25 dollars at the most.
The Best of LOTR
This game has always been one of my favorite action games of all time. most LOTR games are usually real time strategy which can get quickly boring. with Instant action LOTR has created an amazing game that in my opinion is their finest game.
I definitely recommend it to other people. The story mode is a little short, but fun to replay. It's best on co-op. It's really fun!
This game is amazing.Where it really gets great, is when playing with a friend. There are many fun different modes to play. The 4 different classes (mage, archer, scout, and warrior) are all fun but the mage and archer classes are my fav'.I would defiantly get this if or if not a lotr fan. It's also a good price for it.
Terrible Without A Friend, Incredible With One
Ask yourself one question before purchasing this product. Did I enjoy Star Wars Battlefront? If the answer yes, you will love this game. If the answer is no on the other hand, avoid this game for sure. I was a fan of Battlefront, so I had a good time in MiddleEarth, despite the game's flaws. This game has no real story. It is just you set across multiple maps set in Lord of the Rings setting. You fend off waves of enemies, while trying to get to point A to point B. The setup sounds bland, but in reality it is really fun. If you have a kill streak or do well, you will unlock one of the main characters from the films such as Arragorn, Gandalf, Frodo. However, you can flip the game and play as the bad guys. This allows you to have different friends, and different opponents. The maps are great fun, however the game has a lot of glitches. Frame rate has occasional drops, there are invisible walls, and sometimes you fall through the ground. There are some bugs, that will potentially ruin this game. This game is built for Co-op play, and it really is meant for that. If you play it by yourself, you will regret buying the game, but if you manage to get a buddy, the game will really improve. Overall, this is a really good game depending on how you play it.
Amazing but kinda short campaign
This game is amazing, its not like in other games where your its you and two partners against the world you have several allies. I enjoy how you can play as good or evil. This game reminds me of Star Wars Battlefront which is also an amazing game. This game is over all Epic and i would defiantly recommend it to anybody. The campaign is kinda short I beat it in two days on the hardest difficulty, that is why i am glad that there is instant action. The story stays true to the movies for the most part and the online game play is a lot of fun.
Awesome but really hard
i can be frustrating having orc warriors some how wipe you out in a single string of moves but fun 4 classes loads of fun and awesome campaign for both good and evil although me and my friend beat both in one day still theres insatnt action and other diffculties its hard since you could do the same attack to warriors and i takes less than half or half but against you youre dead like that its frustrating constantly slashing and having the warriors blocking all the time and when theyre not blocking theyre attacking so they are a downfall how they are impossible to kill at times its awesome in every way though and i would love a medieval game were it was realistic and limbs could come off if you wanted sadly this game didnt have it which i would rather at times unlike other games were it revovles around it and they come off like a hot knife through butter which gets old since its the same spot every time so this game could be better with limbs coming off from any angle if there is a game like that (which is medival) please tell me like recomend it i would love it but this type of game is the best were youre not a one man army its and epic sword battle wherever its AMAZING so go get it
This game is really fun.The differnt classes are cool to.You have to know what class to choose during certain times.I love how you can have the options at times to become heros(i.e.Legolas,Aragorn,Gandalf,ect.)The game can get frustrating at times because if you fail a mission you have to restart the level over again. The game is still really fun.
this game is the best it has so much strategy there is more to think about what class you want to do
