GamingIndians Review: The Lord of the Rings: Conquest

GamingIndians writes: "In 2000, Pandemic Studios came out with a pretty enjoyable Star Wars game called Star Wars Battlefront, featuring some of the epic battles from the movies. You could play as a standard issue soldier or even take control of one of the Star Wars heroes every once in a while. Now take the same concept and apply it to Tolkien's (or rather Peter Jackson's) The Lord of the Rings and you'll get The Lord of the Rings: Conquest. Based around some of the most memorable battles from the books and the movie trilogy, the game puts you in the shoes of a no name soldier during the War of the Ring, while also giving you the opportunity to play as a hero character. Sounds fun, eh? Not really, because the game isn't half as fun as it promises to be."

(+) Multiplayer can be a fun distraction for a while
(+) Multiple game modes offer a decent amount of variety

(-) Dull gameplay, restrictive levels & loads of glitches
(-) Deviations from the source material can be quite distracting
(-) Voice acting is atrociously bad
(-) Classes are not properly balanced
(-) Short incoherent single player campaigns
