The Lord of the Rings: Conquest
The Lord of the Rings: Conquest

Action 13 January 2009

An action game set in the universe created by J.R.R. Tolkien. The game shows a vision of the aforementioned universe inspired by the movie trilogy directed by Peter Jackson. Developed by Pandemic Studios, The Lord of the Rings: Conquest allows the player to participate in a number of battles determining the fate of Middle Earth. One can side with the forces of good and fight side by side with the characters from the books and movies, or join Sauron as he conquers consecutive territories and enslaves the peoples of Middle Earth. The gameplay mechanics have been based on the formula featured in the first two installments of the Star Wars: Battlefront series. During the battles, one controls standard units diversified in terms of their specialties - the players can become warriors, archers, scouts, or mages. Occasionally, one can also assume the role of giants and characters known from the movie adaptations. The two available single-player campaigns (one per each faction of the conflict) have been divided into several diverse missions - the multiplayer experience, however, features three game modes – Skirmish, Conquest, and Capture the Ring. The game delivers high-quality visuals - the player is bound to appreciate the character models highly resembling the actors who starred in The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy.
