Lord of the Rings The Battle for Middle Earth.
Ages: Teen

Received too late for review. This is a back of the box review.

Decide the fate of Middle-earth as you lead the forces of good or evil in the epic battles from all three films. Control legendary heroes from the film trilogy and earn experience and rank for them on the battlefield. Command the armies of Rohan, Gondor, Isengard and Mondor -- each with their own unique resources and strategies. Challenge fellow rulers online in multiplayer battles for Middle-earth. Re-envision the legendary battles from all three The Lord of the Rings movies -- the outcome is in your hands.

I am going to have to sharpen up my memory of the epic before I pick who to be. - ed.-

In this real time strategy game you can rewrite the history of the War of the Ring and decide the fate of Middle-Earth or play it closer to the Tolking version of The Lord of the Rings and relive the battles from the movies.You are provided with a real time 3D map of Middle Earth with 30 provinces for you to capture each giving you power points or bonus points. You can choose the good side and battle with Rohan and Gondor or the evil side with the armies of Isengard and Mordor. Once your choice is made the game highlights the adjacent provinces that are hostile to you.

This is a game for those who can't get enough of Tolking, who have read the Hobbit when they were eight and want to be a player in the battle for Middle-Earth
