    The Lord of the Rings: Conquest is a great example of why you definitely shouldn't get your hopes up for a game based off a movie/book. This game is a complete button-masher and the story should have been good because it is LOTR, but the characters had absolutely no emotion. The graphics were OK enough, but the game suffered from minor bugs and glitches and the levels in the story mode were sometimes frustrating and too short. The online multiplayer is imaginative and pretty fun. This game is for people who want a LOTR game and don't care too much about quality. Expand

    Lord of the Rings will not appeal to any Lord of the Rings or even a Star Wars Battlefront fan. This game is just a dumb button masher that fails to impress anyone. There is a lot of glitches and bugs in the games. The graphics are dated , the voice is ugly , and the overall presentation is bland. Do not get this game!!

    This could have been a Middle Earth set Star Wars Battlefront-esque game, which would have been great. But it isn't. Its terribly realised. There are few maps, few classes and so few enemies that you spend half of the allotted battle time running around trying to find someone to kill. Heroes and the Scout class are so ridiculously overpowered that you can just mop up in one life as a scout warrior. Enemies tend to congregate right around your spawn point. There are so many graphic flaws and bugs, they really detract from the gaming experience. It would have been cool to ride Oliphaunts and stuff, but you can't. All in all, a game that could have been great, turned out to be anything but that; poor balancing, bugs, hack and slash bashing, short levels and story and annoying AI, make this game one of the worst out there.

    Diehard fans of both online, class-based games and The Lord of the Rings might want to invest the sixty bucks, but if redundant and unimaginative gameplay are things you despise, you'll want to steer clear.
  2. It’d be too easy to say that Conquest will appeal only to diehard Tolkien fans; in fact, they’re the ones most likely to hate it.
  3. The Lord of the Rings: Conquest is an exciting and action-packed way to experience Middle-earth, provided that you have the patience and fortitude to shoulder a few frustrating burdens.
