From EA???s Pandemic Studios comes an opportunity for players to grab their blades, bow or staff and ride onto the battlegrounds of J.R.R. Tolkien???s world to fight for either good or evil. For the first time, an extensive single-player campaign lets players ask the question: ?«£What if Frodo failed to destroy the One Ring????
PROS
The battles are truly epic in scale and the axis of evil campaign is a real bonus.
CONS
It feels like a bit of a button masher at times and there should have been more maps.
VERDICT
Conquest really captures the scale of battles that the book relates and the wide character selection ups its replay value.
