    Lord of the Rings Conquest succeeds in bringing Tolkien's fans a solid videogame, with intense action and a good representation of battles. But there is a strong difference between playing it multiplayer and single player, less fun than the former. Solo players should think twice the purchase.
  2. We are going to go ahead and declare The Lord of the Rings: Conquest as a great game concept.

    I see no point in calling this game rubbish. Sure the melee and graphics are pretty bad. Gandalf may sound like Santa and Gimli may sound likeI see no point in calling this game rubbish. Sure the melee and graphics are pretty bad. Gandalf may sound like Santa and Gimli may sound like a pirate. But this game is sill relatively awesome. I like it's music, it depicts locations verry effectively and there are just enough locations and heroes to make every location feel fresh. It has deep beauty that you have to dig to find, but once you have, it will be he golden fruits of your labor. Full Review »

    A really good time to play before bed. A simple and easy game. The one thing lacking for me is I feel the game is missing something. ItA really good time to play before bed. A simple and easy game. The one thing lacking for me is I feel the game is missing something. It doesn't have too many levels, and a few of them were barely explored locations in the movies and books. Where is Edoras, Lothlorien and a variety of other missing character's you would like to play as. There isn't much to this game, but it's still fun. There is a lot of criticism on the gameplay, underwhelming graphics and lacklustre execution overall. I agree another year of work would've put this game over the edge. However it's cheap good entertainment for what it is. I'm hoping a new game of Conquest is made consisting of levels also from The Hobbit movies. Team Deathmatch and Capture the Ring are fun modes depending on the level, the conquest mode itself, which is what this game is named after is too short. There are a lot of things to nag this game on when you look into it. It's still fun if you don't really care and aren't looking for continuity problems. Have a drink and have a good time, this game was made for nothing more. Full Review »
