Sure, the camera can be a pain and the map isn't in any way natural to use, but you get used to these quirks and they don't get in the way of the very engaging gameplay, while very authentic renditions of every aspect of the LOTR world, both visually and aurally, are spread across the various campaigns and multiplayer game modes.
I for one Love this game so very much. When you able to also have friends on it the game becomes Very intrusting I wonder who still plays this and I wish i didn't give it away to my cousin I need to get it back ASAP It was fun V.S Ai and Remaking Battles like Helms Deep when you see like 10 Attack Trolls and 200 or more Enemys coming at your gate all you see is arrows raining down on Your enemy you get that rush and when they break the gate and You have men waiting right there and charge into the Enemy it's Such a Wonder Battle Feeling it makes you feel and Think as If you were there in the battle making your next move!

Great strategy game. Controls take a bit of getting used to, but intuitive once you do. Multiple interesting factions that feel distinct and diverse. Multiple campaigns to accommodate. Cool heroes and magic powers to use. Custom hero characters to level up and develop. Overall just ane xcellent game, wish I could play it somewhere.
Honestly just get it on pc, I have played it on both it is much better on pc, essentially just due to the obvious, pacing and control interface, I am still convinced rts games belong on the pc and this is coming from console gamer.
