3.0 out of 5 stars Word of Warning about System Specs, 11 Dec 2004
This review is from: The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth (PC DVD) (Video Game)
If, like me you brought this game believing various sites claims (including Amazaon's) that the game will run under Windows 98 or ME then you are going to be sorely disappointed and are going to have to waste a lot of time getting your money back.
For those interested the game Specs as listed on the game itself are:-
System : Windows 2000 or XP only
Processor : 1.3GHz
Memory : 256Mb
Hard Drive : 3.5Gb
Only comes on a DVD-Rom and needs a minimum read speed of 8x
Video Card : 32Mb Direct3D (Cards supported: NVidia Geforce 2 GTS or later, NVidia Geforce FX Series or later, NVidia Geforce 6800, ATI Radeon 7500 or greater, ATI Radeon X800).
Sound : DirectX9.0b compatible
Internet: 56.6Kbps for 2 players or Broadband for 2-8 players.

If you're merely administering a warning to other customers, why give only 3 stars? Your complaint is with Amazon, since the game clearly states on the back of the box that it's compatible with 2000 + XP only.

Three stars because that's a neutral rating. And yes, it's just the system specs. 105 people seem to have found that helpful, probably because when the game was released and the review written a lot of people were still using pre-XP Windows and would have brought the game expecting to not have to upgrade their operating system to play it. Don't like that? Tough. My suggestion is to go out and a get a life, instead of commenting on reviews that are 5 and 6 years old.
