Hey, do you like "The Lord of the Rings?" And did you like "Star Wars: Battlefront?" Well guess what: You'll love "The Lord of the Rings: Conquest," even when the game itself dares you not to.

Like "Battlefront" - which Pandemic Studios also masterminded - "Conquest" is a tactical action game. Your essential objective is to carve through opposing armies, but you're working alongside an army of your own and are free to swap between different classes (warrior, archer, scout, mage). While the number of times you can perish in a single mission is limited, "Conquest" otherwise operates like a multiplayer game: If and when you die, you simply respawn as a character type of your choice while the action carries on uninterrupted."

The story is too old to be commented.
