This real-time strategy game puts you right in the middle of the struggle for Middle-earth. Choose to command the forces of good or evil. Lead your troops into battles from all three films.

Based on New Line Cinema's films of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic fantasy trilogy, The Lord of the Rings, The Battle for Middle-earth is an epic real-time strategy game that brings Middle-earth to life. Whether choosing to command the forces of good or evil, you are in complete control of the epic campaigns depicted in all three films of the trilogy. From waging all-out combat among Middle-earth's vast armies to controlling your favorite heroes and characters while managing the resources and forces of your side, the fate of a living, breathing Middle-earth is in your hands. More than faceless units, every character in the game expresses real-time emotions that change depending on their situation -- watch your swordsmen tremble with fear as they nerve themselves to face advancing Trolls and feel their exultation as they celebrate a hard-fought victory. You can also command the forces of light or darkness in two separate campaigns. You'll have to choose your forces wisely, since each army has its own unique strengths and weaknesses.

  • Command the heroes and armies of Middle-earth in more than 35 missions based on all three films of The Lord of the Rings trilogy
  • Control one of four unique sides, from the Riders of Rohan to the forces of Sauron, each with its own playing styles, resource management and base-building techniques
  • Tolkien's world comes alive in a 3D real-time map featuring clouds, waves and trees blowing in the wind
  • Characters and units express real-time emotion that reflects their situation, from anger to fear to happiness
  • Be the architect of the battle for Middle-earth and orchestrate the memorable, epic war as well as the individual battles from the movies, including the unforgettable siege of Minas Tirith, the battle of Helm's Deep and the desperate last stand at the Black Gate
  • Experience the most convincing real-time strategy combat to date with straight-from-the-movie melee and range animations and unprecedented siege warfare
  • Balanced gameplay with deep strategy mixed with pick up and play ease of use
  • Online multiplayer battles

This game is great. I was a big fan of the old Warcraft games, and this one is very similiar to that game. The Good side is a little overpowered compared to the Horde side, yet it was challangening to complete on both campaigns. The heroes were also a nice addition and made the game that much more interesting. Great buy for only 10 bucks. GET IT!!!

Not having any children of my own I bought this game for my 12 year old nephew for Christmas. My sister told me that he enjoys it so much. Him and his 8 year old brother are constantly playing during the day. My brother-in-law has to wait until they go to bed so that he can play it. I would rate it GREAT!
