I'm not particularly a great fan the LOTR's everything. I mean thought the movies were excellent but I don't have any other of EA's games. This game however doesn't make you have to be. For starters it uses the LOTR's storyline as a guide mainly, you can well shape to a degree the storyline and nice cut scenes explain any of the rest of the story. The interface is different from most other RTS games however it is easy to come to grips with for any RTS player or none player at least with the help of the full motion video help guide. There's plenty of game here for anyone willing to play, easy mode as it may suggest to some is a little too easy however, for anyone other than young gamers and to get the most out of the game you should start the game on normal, of course as this suggests it's a game for anyone, you don't need to be commander of the British fleet in order to complete it. My only negative comment on the game might be that it has a lack of units for each race. Same races have quite few different units but have bases that are very difficult to destroy. Other races (evil ones mainly) have more units and are much more fun play and destroy the little weak men with...think attack troll playing football with men, literally. All in all the game is worth it its well made and fun to play you don't need to be an RTS guru and if you are you'll enjoy it just as much.
