Lord of the Rings: Conquest definitely makes you feel like you are in a battle for your life and freedom. Pandemic does a great job of doing that by using certain sounds and background visuals. The simple control scheme makes it easy for anyone to pick it up and play for the first time. The style that this game was made is not going to appeal to everybody.
411mania thinks the type of gamer that would really enjoy this enough to buy it is going to be fans of the Star Wars: Battlefront series that are looking for a newer version to play on their current generation console. Lord of the Rings fans may be interested to see what the evil campaign has to offer as a story, but beyond that there is not a whole lot.
