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.
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?

     Now I hear what people are saying..

    .. when they say that this collector's edition isn't worth the money if you have the original BFMEII.. but it represents a seriously good investment at £18 if you don't have the original.. I found this pretty easy to pick up in the campaign mode and when I eventually got it online.. even enjoyed some early success in the online tournament.. getting it connect online for me was a bit of a faff whereas others I know had no problems at all.. (it would have got 5 stars without this problem) there's a large community following out there so advice and help is readily available.. the game itself is pretty much standard RTS fare (build resource.. build army.. smash!) but is handled in a pleasing manner.. it looks and sounds good.. personally.. I can't stand the LOTR books or films so if I can enjoy playing this then I'm sure a fan of the hairy footed dudes would get an even bigger kick out of it! I would recommend you play this in the online Tournament mode as that's where the most fun is to be had with some major battles going on to really stretch you! the collector's edition has some nice extra graphical touches that will identify you online as an owner of it.. mainly skins and graphical glows.. now.. back to me battle.. I love the smell of a burning Balrog in the morning... it smells like.. chicken actually..

    Lotr battle for middle earth 2 is really a great game. I've played games like command and conquer and total war, and in my honest opinion, it beats them hands down. The graphics are at a very high standard, the music is taken straight from the movie and each faction is it's own. Not forgetting that in the collectors addition, the player can control 'the dragon', which is quite fun to watch, as it burns the battlefield and all your enemies. Buy it you wont regret it!

    This game is one of the best strategy games i have ever played (yet) the graphics are good and it is simple to command units. Creating your own hero/villain is cool to because it is original. Don't know about the online part yet but still the game is great.

     not good....

    i cant comment on if this game is worthwile getting in regards to the non collectors addition...but i can say that this game is really poor in my opinion. if you are a fan of command and conquer (as i am), then i feel that this wouldn't be for you. i just got annoyed that you have a cap on the amount of units you can build, i feel that this ruins the game slightly. if you could build a huge army then this game would be far more better!
