9/10
a worthy and final (?) part of the BfME series

Warning: Spoilers
This game is as beautiful as its predecessors. Playing it on the "evil" side mostly, there are a few new characters and units, its duration is about as long as BfME2, some levels are tactically demanding, some others provide additional time pressure. You probably will not manage to win all levels on the first attempt (mid-level). It was a lot of fun to play and I am really sad that there is no further add-on to play. The story is set before the other two BfME games: the "Witch-King" has to assemble an army (no surprise here) and conquer the northern kingdom of Arnor - there is an epilogue though... One flaw: I could not play it on XP without switching off my firewall and anti-virus software, so for online-gamers this might be a serious disadvantage or even a reason not to buy it. PS am I really the first to write an IMDb review for this fantastic game, nearly four years after it has been published?! incredible...
