Best Lord of the rings game ever!
1 December 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Battle for middle Earth was everything i wanted it to be and more. The starting levels with only the fellowship was a little bit boring, but when you get to the sieges it is great!

My favorite level is the siege of Minas Tirth, Helms Deep comes up second.

The only thing that let this game down is when an army is getting attacked it sometimes does nothing and let themselves get killed.

The ancillary battles get boring after a while so its best to complete them quickly, so you can enjoy the bigger battles. The heroes make the game more exciting to play.

Battle for Middle Earth would have been better if the good teams were a little more different, the same with the evil army.

Also if you could play as the dwarfs and elves a little bit more.

Other than that it the best Lord of the Rings game ever. EA games have finally made a game for everyone to enjoy! Recommend to all.
