Amazon.co.uk Review

There are many reasons to love The Lord of the Rings, but if your favourite parts were the epic sized battles, then this should be the game for you. You’re able to play as almost any character, good or evil, and take part in giant online battles.

The fell beasts of the nazgul are one of the most powerful mounts
Take part in the defence of Minas Tirith… or the attack
Almost every creature from the books and movies are featured
Oliphaunts are the biggest creatures you can face in the game

The game recreates a wide range of scenes from both the films and the books, including Gandalf’s fight against the Balrog in the Mines of Moria and the Battle of Isengard, where you can play as a tree-like Ent. There are two separate campaigns, for the forces of good and evil, with the latter allowing you to rid oliphaunts in the attack on Minas Trith or to fight as trolls at Helm’s Deep.

Online up to sixteen people can fight in the one battle, across a multitude of different competitive and co-operative game modes. If you can’t play online though up to four people can still fight it out in the splitscreen mode.<





Key Features
  • Battlefront redux – Developed by Pandemic Studios, the creators of the Star Wars: Battlefront series, this is very much the same idea but set in J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasy world.
  • From the source – The game’s graphics have been created with help directly from movie special effects team Weta Digital, including elements not used in the final cuts.
  • Schools out – The game features five different classes of character, including warrior, archer, scout, mage and guardian.
  • Star studded – More than 60 different characters are planned for the final game, including everyone from Aragon and Gandalf to the Uruk-hai Lurtz and even Sauron himself.
  • Lonely planet – Almost every location form the films and books is featured in the game, from the Black Gate and The Shire to Rivendell and Shelob’s Lair.
About the developer: Pandemic Studios
One of the biggest developers in the U.S., especially after merging with BioWare and then being bought by EA, Pandemic has worked on many different styles of games, from Battle Zone on the PC to Full Spectrum Warrior, Star Wars: Battlefront, Mercenaries and Destroy all Humans!

Lord of the Rings Conquest is another block in EA's video game franchise based of the Books by J.R.R Tolkien and the film adaptation by Peter Jackson. The game brings about a lot of features seen in the Star Wars Battlefront Series, along with intertwining it with the fast-paced action seen in the Two Towers and Return of the King games, by EA.

Name: Lord of the Rings - Conquest
Players: 1-2 (Co-operatively) 1-16 (Competitively)
RRP: £29.99
Developer: Pandemic Studios
Publisher: Electronic Arts
Genre: Action/Third Person Shooter
Release Date: January 16th 2009

-=Story=-

The game is split into two separate campaigns, consisting of two different stories. The first Campaign, the War of the Ring, follows the plot of the film and novels, as you fight alongside the forces of good, right up to the Black Gate of Mordor, though it throws in a couple of non-canonical missions not seen in either. The story, however, is focused upon the fact that you already known the plot to the books and film, so little is left for the narration. The second Campaign is based of an alternate ending, where Frodo failed to destroy the ring and it is reclaimed by Sauron. It is told by cinematic narrations between each mission which really do nothing more than to set the scene for each stage. Then again you are not really purchasing the game for the story.

-=Game play=-

As stated the game boasts two Campaigns, though they are loosely different, they are both enjoyable for the short time that they last for. You play as one of four classes; the Warrior, a sword swinging armoured suit of rage, whose game play style is very much home to those who like hack and slash.

The game is epic. Really good graphics and works very well. My son is happy to recommend it to anybody, but particularily to people who like The Lord of the Rings.

Given EA's past attempts at portraying Tolkien's world, it was with some scepticism that I installed Lord of the Rings Conquest. The game is a swords-and-sorcery fighter based on Pandemic's highly sucessful Battlefronts game engine, and on paper it all looks pretty impressive. However in practice, it doesn't work quite so well.

I tried the singleplayer campaign first, to get a feel for the game mechanics and fighting styles. The game gives you four archetypal classes to choose from; the Warrior, Mage, Archer and Scout. I was initially impressed by the Warrior's melee combat - the various moves available all felt weighty and substantial - but then discovered that compared to the rest of the classes, this was rendered fairly irrelevant. Anybody who has ever played a first-person shooter game will absolutely dominate the battlefield with the Archer, instantly killing most enemies with a single headshot, something that is extremely unbalancing in multiplayer. The mage can cut down swathes of melee opponents with little trouble, as well as possessing the ability to heal themselves. The Scout is the stealthy class, who can backstab and instantly kill any single target, as well as having the same basic direct combat moves as the Warrior. Overall the glaring class imbalances detract from the combat experience, and can make the game extremely frustrating in both single and multiplayer modes.

The main issue with the game, and the one that will ire Lord of the Rings fans the most, is how ridiculous the game's attempt to fit into the world of Middle-Earth is.

What I meant by the title is

-The game is too much like Battlefront, it is in no way unique.

Pros.
-Good graphics (although majority of the time there's no more than 50-60 soldiers in the battlefield, the background is siprinkled with thousands of soldiers(in some battles) to give that BFME taste.

- Charracters voices sounds like those in the movie.
- A lot of heroes (meaning you can play your favourite charracters from the movie)
- Can play the evil and the good side...
- Multiplayer is fun.

Cons

* Loses the realism: when your charracter dies you respawn and lose a life.

* Storyline is copied from the movie, however some charracters are not meant to be in some places we play them in... So it kind of kills the movies plot

*Four classes archer,mage,soldier and scout. And there are only three diferent ways to kill your enemies.

*Annying enemies, if you get blown away from a Nazgul, you will either be thrown away from the map or your enemies will stab you to death(this becomes really annoying because of the next part)

*Even if you have lives, when you lose a base the game is over and you have to start from the beginning of the map.

*Too many base capturing, in all of the maps you have to capture a base and move capture another then destroy an object.

*Too much like battlefront...

Overall, I would download the demo before purchasing the game.
