Lemme ask you guys some questions. #1 Are you a lord of the rings die hard fan? #2 Are you looking for an exciting game of lotr porportions? #3 Have you played the Star Wars Battlefront Games?
If so, check out Lord of the Rings Conquest! It is from the same company that made Star Wars Battlefront, and is exactly like star wars Battlefront, only in Middle Earth Style. You basically play as four classes, Listed Below:
#1 Warrior- Role: Tank, DPS, heavy armor, deadly combos-The type of heavy melee/ combo damager and heavy armor that any heavy weapon style type of person will love!
#2 Scout- Role: Sabotage, quick attacks-Scouts are your backstabbing, cloaking, and quick attack man. Basically they can stealth themselves, and if they get behind an enemy while stealthed, can do a killing blow to them. They can throw satchel bombs, use quick attacks, run faster, and can perform quick combos to enemies.
#3 Archer- Role: Shooter, Medium Damage, Sniper-The kind of shooter you would expect to see in Middle Earth. Basically, it has 3 powers. #1 Multi-shot- Shoots three arrows at once at different enemies. #2 Poison Arrow- Shoots an arrow that makes a poison cloud around enemies, dmging them over time. #3 Fire arrow- If aimed at someones head (headshot) it can do huge amounts of dmg, can even K.O. them if you hit them in the right place, but if you shoot it near a crowd of enemies, it will knock them back.
#4 Mage- Role: Support, Healer, Crowd Controller-Type of support class you would have. It also has 3 abilities. #1 Heal- heals yourself and all allies near you. #2 Staff Slam- Slams your staff on the ground, causing all nearby enemies to be knocked back. #3 Firewall- A type of aoe effect, shoot at an enemy, and surround them with a ring of fire, any1 in or near it will take its dmg.
You can also play as heroes, all the way of good guys like Elrond all the way to the esteemed Gandalf the White, to the evil guys from Saruman and Lurtz to the Balrog, and even Sauron himself!
The Campaigns are the good, where you replay all the events of the War of the Ring, to the "Rise of Sauron" (evil campaign) Where you would ask yourself "What if Frodo failed to destroy the ring?" Basically that campaign begins in Mount Doom, your a ringwraith, trying to find the hobbit and kill him, and once you do, you begin your conquest to reconquer the lands of Middle Earth, and kill all the free people leaders like Aragorn, Elrond, Gimli, Legolas, Treebeard, and coming to a climatic showdown in the end of that campaign, with Gandalf the White againts Sauron the Great!(you would be Sauron in this case)
So to sum it up, Lotr Conquest, is a fun game for any lotr die hard fan. Though I must warn you, the only voice of the heroes that will be recognizable to you is Hugo Weavings voice (The guy who played Elrond) He narrates the campaign stories. No other voice (except maybe Aragorn, and Theoden) Will be recognizable, but other then that, the gameplay and war style mechanics are solid. You can play as Ents, and Trolls too, ride wargs and horses, and even ride the esteemed Oliphaunts! If you loved the Star Wars Battlefront games, and/or your a lotr die hard fan! Get this game (preferably for the Xbox 360, but PC is fine, however if you do get it on PC, expect the lag!)
Its basically the same, you capture banners and territories, (much like command posts in battlefront) and you hear your next objectives are. Tookwell's Rating Co. gives this game a 4/5
So Get this game, Its that dam good!
