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.
Lord of the Rings: Conquest is a videogame too far from excellence to be recommendable without making some kind of warning marks before. Those who don't like the senseless button smashing will not enjoy this game, but if you are a fan of both the Tolkien universe and the online battles you will find here an honest but reiterative entertainment.
I don't get all the hate for this game. The combat is very fun even if melee is a little clunky sometimes. The ability to play as the forces of Mordor adds a nice spin on the story even if the initial campaign doesn't add anything new to it. The environment is straight out of the movies and looks great for when it was made. Online was a blast too. In fact my biggest complaint for this game is that they took down the online servers even though people still used them. If online was still working I might rate this a 10. Overall, LOTR Conquest does a great job for the type of game it is. If you're looking for an RPG with skill trees or a game that's hailed for its exceptional story then this might not be the one for you. But if you want a split-screen action based game where you can have fun taking down hordes of enemies with bow, blade, or magic then look no further.

“Lord of The Rings: Conquest” is a fantasy action game on Xbox 360 that takes place in
J.R.R Tolkien’s Middle-Earth. This video game was created by EA and Pandemic with Dolby
Digital, Microsoft, and the creators of the movies (based on Tolkien’s books), New Line Cinema.
This game is rated T due to the violence.
The controls aren’t that complicated, and every class of character has special
abilities. When you get to a certain point in a level, you will be asked if you would like to play as
the hero for that level, like Aragorn or Gandalf. There is a specific hero for every level. Who
wouldn’t want to be their favorite character?
The only thing that annoys me about this game is that if you fail a level you have to start
it all over from the beginning. It isn’t that bad if you have a ton of time to spare, but if you only
have a bit to play before you need to do something important and you just failed that level, it
gets frustrating. The levels only get harder. Not that I’m complaining, I like a game that keeps
you interested. If it was boring and easy, that would take all the fun away.
I feel that this game is amazing! I mean, you get to digitally fight in all of the
battles of Middle-Earth during The War of The Ring for only about $25 if you get the game used
from Gamestop. When I opened the case and looked at the disk there were no scratches
indicating use, and everything was there. The game itself had no glitches to speak of and was
very entertaining. After completing the campaign, you can go on another mode that you unlock
and you can play on the enemy’s side. Every level you complete you get an achievement. Also,
there is a way that you can game online with others.
The graphics are good, the game keeps you interested, it’s
challenging, and you can be your favorite characters at different points in the game. I wasn’t a
fan of what happens if you fail a level, but that’s not really a big deal to me. I would definitely
recommend this game to any and all “Lord of The Rings” fans out there!
Lord of the Rings: Conquest offers the player the same gameplay from the Star Wars: Battlefront franchise, but located in the Middle Earth. Pandemic had a great idea including two different campaigns; we love being the bad guys. But the game is a bit repetitive and offers little variety along the 16 different levels and the graphic are far from the finest examples of this generation. Although LOTR isn't a AAA game, you'll have a good time with it thanks to a great multiplayer mode.
I simply can’t recommend The Lord of the Rings: Conquest. The game is riddled with both minor and major mistakes, the camera is awful, it looks like a PlayStation 2-game, and the gameplay consists of little more than mindless hacking and slashing of countless enemies. The only positive aspect is the decent multiplayer-mode, but even that feels outdated, compared to Call of Duty 4, Gears of War 2 or anything in that direction.
The main campaign missions are extremely fun,especially when "vehicles" come into play in the larger battles.Online is a mixed bag,which is why this is a 9/10 instead of a 10/10,as there are some balancing issues and while it isn't as bad as some say,it is a button masher.
It does give your money back at the current price,definitely a easy buy.
Lord of the rings has got their battlefront version; Lord of the rings conquest!
sadly the online has been closed down. You play as either the good or the evil side and either conquer or save it. I don't think it is quite as good as the battlefront series because it just plays the same for both sides. graphics 7/10 gameplay 7/10 sound 8/10 replay value 8/10 overall 7/10 good
el señor de los anillos conquista es un buen juego, pero no logra abarcar la grandeza de efectos y cosas del señor de los anillos la pelicula, hay que ver mas alla de un simple juego entretenido medieval e ir a una descepcion comparado a lo que se esperaba
I wouldn't recommend it. You will spend 25% of the time on lying down on the floor and being unable to get up because the enemies keep hitting your rising body and quite a lot of that time being glitch-ly pushed across the floor especially while playing one of the classes that isn't the warrior as the gameplay seems to be suited to that class; and even that class isn't that good. Most time he decides to take a little rest in the middle of fighting making you be pushed onto the floor et cetera. His ability make you run with your sword on fire burning anyone you hit but then you will fly way to far past all of the enemies and this apparently is quite tiring so you decide to, once again, take a rest leaving your lovely back open to attack and (somehow) it being hit leads to you being on the floor again. Now, as I said the game seems to be suited to the warrior and that's because of the weakness' of the other classes compared to the combat and their weakness' in general and here's why (looking at each class): The archer has a ludicrous reloading time and no sensitivity setting seems to be suited to his form of combat, and missing constantly would be fine if the reloading time wasn't so bad. He also has three abilities the first one fire three arrows, one forward, one of to the left and of course the other to the right which is alright. The second is a small vicinity AoE poison attack which is quite useful as most enemies stay in large clumps. And the third attack is a fire attack which just does more damage, which doesn’t come in handy when your mostly being attacked by grunts (worse enemies) and the aiming is bad so when fighting the enemy warrior (harder enemies) you miss them quite a bit. The only special thing about the scout is it's ability and that is quite poor; it makes you go invisible but when you hit someone you become visible and this whole game is about fighting hordes of enemies so when you hit one person they all spot you and your ability wont work properly so you become just a weaker version of the warrior. And the mage, he has bad cool down on his main spell which also has a charge so you will find yourself just using your bad melee attack most of the time. There is an infinite ability that gives you a shield that can defend you from all ranged attacks but in single player this useless because the AI is not so smart so they don't use it and then there’s an AoE ground slam, a heal and a short ranged, ranged attack that has a gravity curve. The graphics are less than good especially as it was published by EA and you might be saying "Give it a break it came out in 2009" yeah but so did Arkham Asylum, Halo 3 ODST, MW3 and Final Fantasy XIII (I know it was a disappointing game but it looked quite good). The friendly AI is useless they don't help at all and that’s not in your combat it's in helping with the objective, like they should be. You may start your mission with 15 companions but you will probably end it with less than 4 of them because the rest have buggered off into walls. The game also has two different campaigns but this just seems to be there to add more hours and therefore a bigger price tag. All it is, is just the same thing as the first campaign just mixed up a bit with different sprites (because you play as the enemy), a different story and maybe the chance to control a troll or Oliphant (which is slow and clunky). Talking about repeating things that's what all the levels are just the same things over and over again: capture the base, defend the base, get to the base, destroy the thing and the base kill the boss and if the combat wasn't so boringly repetitive this would be fine but unfortunately it is. 4/10
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.
SummaryFor the first time, play as Evil characters in a brand new, 'Evil' campaign. Battle through scenarios after Frodo failed to destroy the One Ring; it’s good to be bad. Acclaimed Battlefront gameplay in a fantasy setting allows players to choose the way they fight, as Warrior, Archer, Mage or Scout in melee and ranged combat. Online multip...
