Battle for Middle-Earth II

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.

Comment: I actually preferred the first one more; the pre-built castles were nice, and the limited building features made it important what you got. The area-based farm system in this is extremely annoying, strategies were not meant to be played on consoles(the XBox 360 version). The addition of ships was pretty nice but didnt live up to my expectations. A decent game, but by no means great.

Comment: Graphics- is great but you need like a really nice computer if you want a really nice graphicSound- GoodMusic – Good, nothing different from the movie

Plot- there are some add-ons but it’s fairly original to LOTR movies

Game-play- Is good but the only thing I find most original is that you can use your awsome hero skills to wipe out an enemy force and some awsome power boost you get now and then to improve your force and destroy your enemies. However most of these are not so new, they’re on mythology and Warcraft III. Most of it isn’t very new to me and one thing I don’t like about the game is that you don’t control as much enemies as before. If the population limit was about 1000 the game probably would’ve impressed me more.

Comment: Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle-Earth II, has all a gamer would want. It’s a good strategy game, take’s alot of skill to “Master” the game, and when you go online, WOW, is it great!
Any lover of games witch are adictive, good, fairly-priced and Online, should really get this game.The only thing a little bad about it is the lag you get sometimes on the game, if you increase command limit.

  3. I love lotr movies,this game is awesomeeeee,excellent strategy ,all epic battles are included ,you can play as good or dark side,you have to have good strategy of you will fail a mission. Graphic is solid,but if we check game release date,it is logic. In one word,perfect strategy game.I would change only graphic.

  4. This 2nd part of LoTR game follow story that wasnt shown on movies, campaign shows battles of dwarfs, elves, goblins, basically what ever battles wasnt shown on movies they are here. On this game we have chance to see many different new heroes, structure upgrades and many other Armies. Awesome game.

  5. Ah I played this game a long time a go when I was kid.The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth II (BFME II) is a real-time strategy computer game published by Electronic Arts.There is 5 classes Human,Dwarf,Elf,Orc and hobbits.Also there are movies made because of game.You can Play Single and Multiplayer, and you can also play campaign,but sadly I think this part of game is dead now(hardly who play it) but other parts,new parts of game are AWESOME.But anyway I recommend everybody this game because it has great story about and wars you will spend much time watching this movie and playing this game.

  6. Lord of The Rings : Battle for Middle Earth – Game Review

    First of all, i played this game because my brother introduced it to me. I was a huge fan of Lord Of The Rings Series back then and even now i still enjoy the stories, the concepts, the magics, the action filled scenes, the sceneries, the art if combat, the enchantments, the fantasies, etc..

    It’s a kind of strategical – skirmish type of game. The layout is, you build bases, make troops, gather resources that available on a single map. Build walls or etc depending on what kind of battle or situation you are in.

    There is a campaign mode where you follow through the story. There’s evil and there’s good side of the story. So there are obviously different outcomes.

    There are different races to play.
    Elves, Dwarves, Hobbits, are on the good side. And many others i cant quite remember now.
    Dragons, Orcs, Goblins, Trolls and many others are on the evil side.

    At first, I played the good side. There were cutscenes. The force of Sauron striked an elven village.
    At first, i can only control one or two heroes. These heroes can level up and use useful skills and have high Healt Points and attack. Then after i progress on the map completing quests, like “kill the orcs positioned @here” i gained some troops to accompany the heroes. Then we advanced. After advancing, i got a builder and i was prompted to build bases walls, barracks and anything useful.

    Upon completion of these quests, A cutscene will ocur once again, and i advanced to the next map. The continuation of the story. There will be additional heroes on my disposal. Some will be removed but that’s part of the story.

    More upgrades will be available. Like for example, when i played the evil side. As soon as i progressed, i got hold of a strong dragon hero to my disposal. It’s really fun controlling a dragon and burning down troops with him.
    I feel the song from the Hobbit movie. Showering flames down to mortal lives <3

    There are different weakness and advantages for races. Like elves are good with bows and long range spells. They are good for high ground attacks. (Because the terrain is another important factor of the game.)

    There are Spiders too. Brood spiders which are so annoying that you have to destroy and burn their bases and spawn buildingsbso they will stop. These creatures are neutrals. Meaning they will attack either side. They have settlements. And theyre a big help for gaining gold needed to grow your buildings and troops stronger.
    It's like the game, Battle Realms but more story – oriented.

    Theres another easter egg. In game theres this creature, Smeagoll. He holds the Ring. (I'm assuming you are all familiar with the ring) it grants powerful magic. Idk but you have to have it. I cant exactly remember what thw benefit is but Smeagoll sometimes appear on maps. This is crucial on skirmish modes.

    It was really a fun game. And its graphics are good too. It wont disappoint. Its a sweet game.

    10/10 Thumbs Uppy~

  7. I really love this game!! It was and is one of my favorite strategy games out there!! Well since its about the Lord of the Rings which i simply adore its understandable!!! This games campaign lets you experience battles beyond of the main story that you have seen in the trilogy!! You can create your own champion with the skills of your choice!! Choose which side you wish to play with and try to obtain the ring!! By doing so you will be able to summon an additional hero from the ones available to your faction!! I personally love the elves!! Their archers are no joke after you upgrade them.. but never underestimate the rest of the races or you will meet your doom!!! I rate this 4.5/5..

  8. Battle for Middle-Earth II is a pretty good game; really like the Tolkien inspiration that this game borrows, but I think that’s really the main selling point of the game, the fact that it’s based on Tolkien’s works. But looking at the game, it’s not exactly the best-looking game; overworld feels a bit monotonous and the HUD interface isn’t the best. But the game does seem pretty fun to play, and it includes both a single-player and multiplayer mode. Really like the choice of factions and heroes, and Tolkien playable characters. Overall, I’d rate this game a 4/5.
