The Lord Of The Rings: Conquest
2 New from
Ive played some pretty bad games but this one is up there in all honesty.
Single player or Co-Op mode have about 2 hours of content max. then you get to play it all again as the "Evil" guys which is similar play time. The gameplay is shoddy at best. I was playing this on a fairly descent machine but even so despite having a high framerate the game still appears to be somewhat laggy. I have a few friends that also bought this hoping for more and we all agree that it doesnt look or play half as good as it should.
Multiplayer is just as bad in all honesty. For 1 they create Hero battles which basically means that you have 8 Frodos running around 1 shotting everyone whilst on the other side you have 8 Witch-kings. you can play standard classes but then you just get about 11 stealth classes 1 shotting anyone that can be bothered to play a class that doesnt stealth. All the game modes are lazy and there is no advancement or reward system to enhance any of the repetitive 4 or 5 classes that exist in the game.
You can use mounts but as soon as u go near the horse you get dismounted.
Its the equivilent of an old dynasty warriors game but just looks a bit worse and needs a better system to run it plus i dont think you can get more than 16 players in multi which is a bit un LOTR.
My opinion is if you see this for a fiver in a bargain bin its worth buying just incase you have to get a present for someone you dont really like.
Gameplay - 3/10sounds - 3/10 (Voice Overs in game are shocking)Graphics - 4/10
Overall - 3 / 10
If your a Lord of the Rings fan i would honestly steer clear unless you can handle some classic stories being cheaply edited for a bit of money.
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

To start i am a huge star wars fan and have been for many years.
Personally i think this game has been massively overhyped.
The gameplay is ok if not a little buggy. For example every lvl you fight a boss at the end, i dont remember 1 fight that didnt bug out on me. One the boss fell from a platform and all i could do was look at my shoes because the camera went nutz. Some got stuck ontop of railing and in walls. I always feel the endings were cop outs aswell. Using the same system as mercanaries. Having the press buttons at the right time to finish a fight.
Overall the game does look awesome, sounds awesome but with a little over 6 hours gameplay i felt this was a pretty dissapointing title.
The worst thing was that it didnt seem to have any realism of damage. Im sure jedis wernt wrote into star wars to be invincible but apparently blaster fire doesnt do anything when it hits your character.
My opinion is if you want a good starwars game which matches this genre buy jedi academy on the pc.
Not worth £40 for 6 hours play....
