The Lord of the Rings: Conquest (Xbox 360)

 

The Lord of the Rings universe is full of memorable battles. No matter whether they are staged in a cramped burial chamber or on a vast, open plain, each clash of arms teeters between exultant triumph and agonizing defeat. In The Lord of the Rings:...

The Lord of the Rings: Conquest

 

Star Wars: Battlefront minus the blasters. That's a pretty accurate summary of The Lord of the Rings: Conquest, though I don't think my editor would approve of me turning in a six-word review. It's not surprising the two games are so similar...

And so The Lord of the Rings: Conquest is a disappointing outing. It tries to bring a Star Wars: Battlefront style experience to the world of The Lord of the Rings, which sounds good on paper, but clearly the transition from a sci-fi to a fantasy...

Few games seem to try as hard as The Lord of the Rings: War in the North to be awkward and disagreeable. This is an uncomfortable, unimaginative and uninspiring game, derivative of its own source material while simultaneously attempting to ape it with...

Reigning destruction as an Ent should be more enjoyable. Developed by Pandemic, Lord of the Rings: Conquest takes all the right ingredients and boils them down into something makes you...

Torching the Shire

Poor game design ; It's repetitive. And redundant

Expert review by:

Lord of the Rings Conquest (360)

 

Labeling a game as an RPG and actually producing a good, solid, playable and enjoyable RPG experience are two entirely different things, as EA Games keeps proving whenever if releases a new title based on the Lord of the Rings. Lord of the Rings...

I'm struggling here to say something nice

Calls itself a strategic action RPG, but feels more like a really bad real-time strategy ; Combat system is relentless in tossing loads of enemies your way, making progress very slow ; Offers three attack modes: magic, sword and bow... lacks depth ;...

Lazy and uninspired and repetitive and boring and did I mention repetitive? Lord of the Rings Conquest is more ponderous that Return of the King's 20 endings. (The movie, not the book.)

Lord of the Rings: Conquest

 

What The Lord of the Rings: Conquest aims to accomplish is no mean feat. Pandemic, creator of the Star Wars: Battlefront series, reconstructs the iconic set pieces, body-strewn arenas, and battlefield personalities of the trilogy in order to establish...

The Star Wars: Battlefront formula performs at expectation, but the execution of sizeable battles doesn’t wholly answer to the promise of making a difference in the War of the Ring. The evil campaign orders up this difference, but only delivers a war...

Lord of the Rings: Conquest

 

It is fair to say that I have not been the biggest fan of EA in recent times, especially due to their continued pimping of annual franchises. However, they effectively pistol whipped me into submission in the last few months with titles like Dead...

If you’ve played Battlefront then this will be all too familiar and suffers from all of the same issues as well. Even for newcomers and LOTR fans, this will be tough to enjoy due to the brevity of the game and the shoddy mechanics. It is fun for a...

The Lord of the Rings: Conquest

 

Pandemic Studios' 'The Lord of the Rings' game is a disappointing squandering of a powerful license.

Twin campaigns of good and evil; playable versions of the series' biggest heroes and villains

Awkward combat mechanics; cheap AI tactics; bland graphics; game modes aren't very inspiring

Expert review by:

Lord of the Rings: Conquest

 

In the case of Lord of The Rings: Conquest, you're not left with much. EA and Pandemic's tactical action title set in the highly popular LOTR universe is a repetitive, glitchy mess that borrows heavily from a franchise that began showing its age in the...

Besides being incredibly repetitious, Conquest's battles have some serious flaws. Besides being timed, you have a very limited number of lives between your troops. Using the "unlimited lives" and "no time limit" cheats included in the trainer get rid...

Lord of the Rings Conquest

 

The gaming community has been up in arms regarding LOTR Conquest. With many professional reviews claiming that it?s mediocre, and many consumer reviews claiming it?s very good, it?s hard to tell of what quality this game actually is. Hit the jump and...

A 7 is above average. Due to the single player being somewhat of a letdown, and the problems mentioned above, it is not a stellar game, and could have used more work. However, it is a ton of fun online, and 8v8 combat is more immersive than you think

Product Specifications

In this exciting, action strategy game, players fight on the side of both Good and Evil in all the biggest battles from The Lord of the Rings movies. The Battlefront format allows them to switch between characters at will, to suit the circumstance or their style, reliving - and even reinventing - the chaotic and engrossing conflicts from the films as they choose how best to tackle their objectives and defeat their enemies.
