GameSpy writes: "Electronic Arts recently released a downloadable demo of Lord of the Rings: Conquest over Xbox Live, and since it's been awhile since console kingpin Will Tuttle last toyed with it, we figured we'd delve into the demo for some updated impressions.

+Well-balanced classes with effective group harmonies
+Varied tactics and environments in maps
-Choppy online performance
-Doesn't offer many new twists on the classic Battlefront formula
