The Lord of the Rings, The Battle for Middle-Earth will give gamers the first chance to play the epic battles they've witnessed in Peter Jackson's films. Fans will be able to immerse themselves in Middle-Earth and experience The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy like never before, including controlling the evil side of the conflict.
The Battle for Middle-Earth utilizes the Generals game engine, and in the game players can select from the different "good" or "evil" campaigns, where they will be given the freedom to command a variety of major armies from the films, each with their own distinct strengths and weaknesses. Prepare for war by creating offensive and defensive strategies set in the memorable battle locations taken straight from the big screen. The Battle for Middle-Earth RTS game will utilize the digital assets created for the films and will feature exclusive voiceover from the real actors as well as actual movie footage from the three films.

This game truly is amazing. It didn't exactly have the best graphics, even for its day, but the gameplay was totaly unique. The campiagn was epic whilst also being extremly chalanging. There were huge castle battles like Helms deep and Minas Tirith, units would react to other units, cower in fear, taunt them, trolls could pick up tress and throw them, the list of awesome features goes on.

You could even get Mumakil!

The game was fresh, and picked up on the intense popularity of LOTR because of the films.

Great game, worth a buy even after this long.

 Seriously...that good?

This game is based on the Lord of the rings movie and is an excellent RTS that makes you appreciate the world created by J.R.R Tolkien. The game is simple enough to play but at first you may find you getting your ass a bit whooped if you are not experienced in RTSs, I was not but the game has a good learning curve. The maps are varied and with the chance for expansion from user made maps, you could play this game for a loooong time and still enjoy each game.

The story mode if fun enough and you play as either the evil side or the good side which will see you play as Isengard, Mordor, Rondor & Gondor which will see you playing as all the factions and allows you to play as the heroes who made the movie.

Multiplayer online mode is fun but if you have the unfortune of playing someone much much better than you, you can feel a little bit demoralised.

Overall a good game although one thing I am not keen on is the camera which I feel could zoom in more and also on some multiplayer games unless you have a fast computer the game can start to run slow.

Good game 4/5

 A must buy!

Battle For Middle Earth is an amazing game in my opinion because it has alot of awsome stuff that you can do.
The gameplay is like most other RTS games but it has alot of heroes from the movies to play as which is fun in its own way, such as Frodo, Gandalf, Saruman etc.
The heroes add a unique feel to the game because they have special abilities, some noticable from the movies and some not.
Using these against foes can be fun, dominating armies with a handful of heroes will keep you hooked for hours.
The single player aspect of this game follows the story of the three LOTR films, as Frodo sets out to destroy the ring.
What makes the game so exciting is that you get to fight in those huge, breath-taking battles such as the Balrog, Helm's Deep, Minas Tirith etc. This is was makes the game unique, inthat you can be a part of these battles.
The skirmish side of Battle for Middle Earth is great in its own way. You are able to unlock heroes and use them at your will such as ents, undead army, the balrog etc which offers a huge advantage in this game.
I definately recommend this game to LOTR fans or people just looking for a new RTS to play as it is an incredible game to play through to the end.
