John Erikson writes "Conquest is the latest title in the Lord Of The Rings franchise to be released by Electronic Arts. It is an unusual combination of their previous titles such as Return Of The King with aspects of developer Pandemic's Battlefront series. Can it capture the positive aspects of both and combine them into a killer title?
Much like Battlefront, Conquest places you with 16 other players online or 4 players in split screen mode to compete in battles throughout the Tolkien history. You can choose to play as one of four classes (such as scout, warrior, archer or mage) and then jump into the role of a hero such as Gandalf from time to time. If you have a darker side you can join the forces of evil and cause as much mayhem and destruction as possible. Additionally you can transform into a giant unit such as an Ent or Troll across three multiplayer modes (Capture The Flag, Conquest and Team Deathmatch) and two single player campaigns."
