4 Now I hear what people are saying..ArmchairPimp | 03/06/2007 | See all ArmchairPimp's reviews (4).. 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..
