    This game is very good the story is awesome the toys are sweet and the online is addictive the only thing that I think is bad is the hero on hero fights in singleplayer they are very weird, in the training mission when you are done there is sauron and you get to be a hero, i found being an archer was easier to kill him in head shots because when you play as a hero its a warrior so you This game is very good the story is awesome the toys are sweet and the online is addictive the only thing that I think is bad is the hero on hero fights in singleplayer they are very weird, in the training mission when you are done there is sauron and you get to be a hero, i found being an archer was easier to kill him in head shots because when you play as a hero its a warrior so you have to be very close and that just got you killed.

    Its not as bad as some of the reviews would have you believe. It's not very polished and the single player is ghastly compared to their previous Battlefront series, but the online is solid and quite fun. That's what I personally look for in a Pandemic game.

    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 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 onceI see no point in calling this game rubbish. Sure the melee and graphics are pretty bad.

    i do not see why so many ppl give this game a bad review i personally love it with a few exceptions such as being able to get knocked off a horse with one hit but other than a couple little dumb mistakes on the part of the game designers this is a good game and is tons of fun to play with a friend. this is a very under rated game but i think it is a must have to anyone that likes thesei do not see why so many ppl give this game a bad review i personally love it with a few exceptions such as being able to get knocked off a horse with one hit but other than a couple little dumb mistakes on the part of the game designers this is a good game and is tons of fun to play with a friend. this is a very under rated game but i think it is a must have to anyone that likes these battlefield type games or at least rent it but do not just skip over this game because of a couple bad review Expand

    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. 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.A really good time to play before bed.

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. Expand

    Its addictive. And its a very FUN game if your a lord of the rings fan but if your not you will absolutely hate this game. Great buy for a LOTR fan but in no other circumstances buy this.

    The music and dialogue is standard fantasy epic fare, although delivered flawlessly. The locations and graphics are adequate, without being spectacular, and the character models are smooth and serviceable, perhaps a consequence of the game’s online focus.
  2. Had Pandemic and EA given this game fluid action elements in tune with more modern games such as Devil May Cry and Ninja Gaiden -albeit not to those extremes- we'd have a winner on our hands. But as it stands now, Conquest fails because it feels outdated, despite featuring a novel concept.

    Clunky controls and redundant gameplay all point to the guilty party: mediocre game design.
