    Conquest, Aragorn's Quest, War in the North... take your pick.

    The only LOTR game of any worth since Battle for Middle-Earth II is the LEGO game. So until reviews claim this is not shovelware, that's what I'll assume it is.

    Nothing will be as bad as Lord of the Rings: The Third Age was.

    Conquest was fun, till it got boring :p

    But yea the Third Age was brutal, couldn't even get out of Moria cause of that ridiculous fight with a bunch of goblins

    Never played Aragorn's quest, but War in the North was iffy.

    IMO the best Lord of the Rings games are

    Lego: Lord of the Rings
    Battle for Middle-Earth II
    Return of the King
    Two Towers

    Yeah, The Two Towers and Return of the King were surprisingly awesome, 'specially since The Two Towers actually covered the first film as well. Combat was great.

    Dislike the MMO format, so have never played it, but I've heard it's a really good game for that genre.

    I'll check it out simply because I'm pathetic and gotta check out everything Middle-Earth related just as I check out everything Star Wars related. :D

    I seem to be one of the few who happens to like War in the North [face_plain] Then again, i never finished it. Everytime me and my friend play it, we play coop. Get to Rivendell and stop, pick it up again couple months later and restart :p

    The best ones where the Two Towers and Return of the King back on PS2, and the Battle for Middle Earth games :D

    Can you beat Legolas silly, as payback for the Hobbit films?

    No, but maybe you get to play AS Legolas, which allows you to just jump into the lake and drown yourself. :p
