Big Release: Xbox 360 LOTR

The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth II for Xbox 360 is releasing today. Next-Gen talks to EA about the game's prospects and gauges press reaction.

That's even better a playable SP and MP demo on live this month!

Always annoying when articles do that.

I agree with them that the tv show was a bit on the clean side. They got loads right regarding set design etc but there's room for improvement.
