Pretty decent game, heavy focused on the multiplayer part. Just swap medium range weapons for swords (adds combos to the usual capture the flag class oriented multiplayer games ) and bows for sniper rifles. Throw in assasins and warlocks (counterpart of medic class in oter games) and you got it. The light vehicle part are just horses and such since the heavy ones (tanks anyone?) are trolls and the bigger stuff you can find in tolkien's stories.
Playing it 3rd person (ala star wars battlefront) and the melee component made a nice twist to the classic battlefield style multiplayer games. You can even control unique characters like Gandalf itself to turn the the situation to your side
You can get about 500+ gamerscore alone with the campaing involving you with the good and the evil forced alike and manages to feel epic if you like warhammer, dragonlance and such fantasy universes.
Graphics aren't the best arround, must admit, but serve well he gameplay. You get different class models depending the area you are figting, so you won't see the same swordman at the forest that in the mines, etc.
The camera is good but sometimes it's a pain to rotate so you can face one of the many enemies the game throws at you.
Lately I can't findas many online playes active as I would like to being usual a 3 on 3 or 3 on 2 and 9 players at the same time an oddity but still possible.At least I know some people getting this one soon so it fortunatedly will change soon.
For its actual price it's a good game with nice campaign and strong team based multiplayer. I reccomend to give it a try and remember that there is a demo @ XBL marketplace.
