Ever wondered which Lord of the Rings games are worth your time? Here's our definitive list of the top LoTR games you can play right now.
LOTR: The Two Towers was one of the best games to come to Gamecube. I didn't have PS2 or a gaming PC in this period of my life, so having a game like this, Eternal Darkness and Twilight Princess really helped my library.
Battle for Middle Earth was awesome. Any game where I can send Mumakil to crush a band of hobbits deserves a GOTY award
GAme was so fun
I played the first one and yes it was a blast. I still have it, need to find it and install it again. Never played the sequel. Did you try it out?
I loved how units just bounced around when you charged them or blew them away with gandalf's word of power ;) When I installed the game back in the day, started the campaign and blew a couple orcs away from a bridge in Moria I knew I was in for something special. The multiplayer was also a lot of fun.
I loved Tom Bombadil bouncing around singing and prancing killing enemies
good times ^^ Rohan was overpowered as hell though, the swordsman archer combo was too good, it countered horses and the fire arrows upgrades did so much damage, it was unfair. Especially with how many heroes they had that all gave buffs to the units.
Yep, RotK co-op was so much fun. And Two Towers was a gem.
Battle for Middle Earth series was fantastic, and I'm not a big fan of rts in general. Finds itself within the fairly small ranks of ones I can really sit down and enjoy.
Even though its unlikely I hope those games get a re-release at some point, i never got around to trying them because i was too busy with Generals/Zero Hour at the time but would love to try them out.
Yeah. I never had the chance to play the original, but played a lot of the sequel on the 360 back in the day. Like I said, it says a lot when you can take someone who isn't necessarily a fan of rts, isn't a giant Lord of the Rings fan either, and then put the game on a control method not necessarily known to be optimal for said genre of game, and he still highly enjoys it all the same. But yeah, would like to return to it on the PC.
Shadow of war is so underrated.
Lord of the Rings the third age on ps2 is underrated
I'm genuinely hyped for Gollum. I reckon it could be on this list in the future!
I liked a lot LOTR: The Third Age, PS2. I still have it :D
