See the whole of Middle-earth when you play this exciting strategy game

By Daren Garius

On Wednesday, September 3, 2014

I am not into reading comic books or novels. But when these books are brought to life through movies, I take time to watch them in cinemas. One of the film adaptations that I enjoyed was The Lord of the Rings trilogy. The novel was created by the famous J. R. R. Tolkien. What I like about the game version is that it does not only include the content from the movie but also those from other novels by Tolkien relating to Middle-earth. There are also new factions that were not available during the original game that makes it more exciting. There are new heroes introduced in this release but you can still choose factions from the earlier game. The option to select if you want to play for the good or evil campaign is an added bonus. I like going into battle and using my favorite heroes particularly the Witch King and Aragorn. If you love the book or the movie, you will also enjoy the game version.

Pros

  • Multiplayer suite for one-on-one or teams
  • Choose from good or evil campaign

Cons

  • Armies made during battle dies after war

An Intense RTS Game That Will Give You a Deep Strategy Experience

By Sam James

On Friday, July 18, 2014

Though The Battle for Middle Earth II was released several years ago, I still find it very interesting and enjoyable to play. Honestly, this game is way better than the first edition. The graphics and sound effects are just simply awesome. It has a multiplayer mode, so can have the opportunity to play with your buddies, and of course, it has a skirmish mode that adds to the longevity of the game. Moreover, there are new characters offered in these game as well new maps. Also, the gameplay is more intense than ever. I like its action-packed battles and its fantastic storylines from both good and evil factions. However, the concept of the game is quite common. It is just like any other strategy games out there. I think it lacks originality, but overall, The Battle for Middle Earth II is a well-rounded and intense RTS game that will put you in a deeper compound strategy experience. If you are an RTS gamer, don’t forget to add this one on your list.

Pros

  • There are new maps available
  • It has a better graphics and sounds

Cons

  • The game’s concept is quite common
