In The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth II, the sequel to the critically acclaimed RTS game The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth you now have the chance to experience all that Middle-earth was meant to be - PRE ORDER IT NOW and be the first to play this amazing game in the beta version. (Keys and Instructions will be emailed on a weekly basis)
With all new content from J.R.R. Tolkien's original fiction, delve deeper than ever before and engage in new battles that go beyond the award-winning movie trilogy. Wage war in the North and assume command of the most storied civilizations in all of Middle-earth history - the Elven and Dwarven armies - or fight on the side of Evil with heroes and creatures that have never been seen in The Lord of the Rings films. Defend or overtake never before seen lands such as Dol Guldur, The Misty Mountains, and Mirkwood as you unleash powerful new weapons and abilities - summon dragons, cause volcanoes to erupt, or bring down a cataclysmic lightning strike.
But beware, with greater power comes greater adversity. Your enemies, commanded by a powerful new AI system, possess a greater tactical edge and more powerful spells. Will your armies have the fortitude to persevere?
  • Command all the races of Middle-earth with 3 all new factions including Elves, Dwarves, and Goblins.
  • Win the war in the North single-player campaign with all-new story that takes you to places and battles of Middle-earth previously unseen.
  • Build your own landmark castle with fully customizable and upgradeable fortresses and walls
  • Create your own hero with all new customized RTS units that are your avatars in-game
  • Control battles with all-new enemy AI, melee combat, and flanking, adding unprecedented tactical fidelity
  • Master next-gen unit control with smart formations, battle lines, and planning mode
  • "Build anywhere" brings creativity and strategy to base building and battlefield dominance
  • Control the entire war with a high level "Risk" style meta-game on the Living World Map with all new strategic AI
  • Extend your battlefield with larger than life navy battles at sea

 One of The Best RTS Games Around

| | See all CrimsonGhost's reviews (5)

Battle for Middle Earth the first game of the two was still a great game this game has adjusted all the tweaks such as being allowed to build anywhere instead of being confined to your castle walls,also there are 3 new playable factions the elves,dwarves and goblins each having there own abilities and weaknesses. Only problem is requires a good graphics card to play although well worth it !

 Excellent and Outstanding

Create battles just like in the film and fell the power of the elves, dwarfs, men, mordor, isengard, or gobblins and play till your heart is content

This game is a must have in ur game collection
It certainly is in mine!

peace out

 Brilliant sequal

I think this game is brilliant for the money you spend. Thae skirmish's are the highlight of the game. I like playing as isengard and i like how you could make your own hero. If the skirmish's of Battle of middle earth 2 and the Campaign of the first one were put together it would be game of the decade

 And you thought the first one was good!

This is fantastic. If you've played the first Battle For Middle Earth then you will expect something better for a sequel. You won't be disappointed.

First off is the extra factions. Gondor and Rohan have been brought together into one "Men of the West" as it should be. Of course there's Mordor and Izengard but there are three new factions: Elves, Dwarves and Moria. This brings many new heroes including Glorfindel, an elf who was missed out of the film, Gloin, one of the thirteen dwarves that travelled with Bilbo and also if you find the ring in skirmishes then you have the chance to send Sauron or Galadriel onto the field of battle and they are amazing!

Each faction has a unique fortress which can be upgraded with a powerful weapon. My personal favourite is the elves' as they can summon an eagle with no extra cost to command points!

The create-a-hero feature is reasonably good but the customisation needs more options in the way of armour etc. However with the "Rise of the Witch King" expansion there are some more. The feature gives you the option of having a Troll hero or creating your own wizard! The powers they can have are very good and quite creative for example wizards can turn their enemies into cows!

These are just a few features in the game and I hope that I have shone some light for those unsure on whether to buy this fabulous game. Besides the fact it is based around Lord of the Rings it is a great RTS and should go down in history as one of the best.

 A lot better than No 1
