Pandemic Studios and Electronic Arts have released Lord of the Rings: Conquest, a new game based on The Lord of the Rings film trilogy while using the gameplay made famous in Pandemic’s Star Wars: Battlefront series.
The game lets you choose between playing as good or evil, and fighting through campaigns such as the battle of Helm’s Deep and Isengard. Conquest also features some elements that were cut from Peter Jackson’s films, but were featured in J. R. R. Tolkien’s original books, including Balin’s conquest of Moria.
The graphics and gameplay are just as epic as the films, and the game also uses Howard Shore’s score as its soundtrack. I usually frown on games based off movies, but this one has all of the right elements to get me excited.
