Game Over writes: "Star Wars: Battlefront minus the blasters. That's a pretty accurate summary of The Lord of the Rings: Conquest, though I don't think my editor would approve of me turning in a six-word review. It's not surprising the two games are so similar considering Pandemic Studios developed them both. What is surprising is that here we are four years removed from Star Wars: Battlefront and in making The Lord of the Rings: Conquest, the team at Pandemic did so little to improve the formula. The end result is a mostly dull and uninspired affair."
