The battles featured memorable heroes and characters going head to head, "evil versus good" style. A few years ago, when the LOTR movies were released to be precise, translating those battles into a video game was labelled impossible. They were too large and featured way too many characters going at it at once for a game or system to handle. Using Star wars: Battlefront for both the Xbox and PS2 as a stepping stone, the developers of The Lord of the Rings: Conquest (Pandemic Studios) used a mixture of licensed music, movie ripped cut scenes and some interesting gameplay options to come up with a rather interesting video game, on the outside at least."
