LOTR: Battle for Middle Earth 2 images

LOTR: Battle for Middle Earth 2 images

EA released four images from Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth 2. Some of them are old but we didn't have in our database, but I think at least one or two is new.

dont no if its my type of game but i guess could be worth a rent or even worth a demo download if they do one :)

cool, what is the word for this type of game?

RTS = real time strategy

its coming along nicely. It looks better than the last shots of it. It still needs some work though.

Didn't we see these before??

RTS just doesn't work on a console ...

Yes, it's difficult enough to control a game like this with a mouse and keyboard.
I don't know how could they possibly make it fluidly playable on a console.

These screens are looking hot though.

It looks cool, most of the initial previews have been favorable towards the control scheme for the game using a controller. I guess you'll have to take those favorable comments with a grain of salt considering how much gaming sites hype up games prior to release these days.

I just hope they can pull this off, RTS games on the console using XBL for multiplayer matchups would be awesome. I'd kill for Total Annihilation or Command and Conquer on the 360.

well this game is pretty good on pc.. strategics are very nice although some stuff still a bit impalanced...
Commented on 2006-03-31 17:21:54
impalanced = imbalanced ofcourse :D

I think it could work ok with dual analogue controlls, a mouse pointer could be fairly accurate with the left stick, could rotate the map with the right one...

One of the problems in the past with RTS on consoles was the resoultion and digital controls.. both of those have been fixed now..

Still not my sort of game, but looks nice enough ..

THATS why you're not a game developer. ;)

So if someone says that a KB/M combo for a console FPS is wanted, people jump all over the place yelling go home pc fanboy, yet if someone says that they want a KB/M for an RTS its all good? What a double-standard.

I just wish MS would come to its senses and give people the choice, the USB ports are right there waiting.

Btw, I'm with pr0cs, C&C Generals would make a great XBLive game. Make it console friendly, port it with XNA and theres a nice revenue stream.

    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: I'm still trying to find to figure the spread and recoil for BF1. Since the weapon mechanics is pretty different than BF4. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I don't imagine using as many guns per class in BF1. Searching for that best solution for each kit really. I do like the Mondragon. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX My favorite BF4 assault rifle isn't even the best. I've played a lot of SCAR-H, AEK, FAMAS.. all amazing. My favorite.. F2000. Bullpups FTW. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX BF4 is like gun porn. The only thing I don't like about its gun selection is the lack of an M16A3.. because people cried about how good it was in BF3 :D (2 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: But you're right. It does feel barebones at the moment, knowing EA they saved the best for the DLC. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX A lot of the time I've spent playing Calvary has been off the horse tbh.. it does make you a target. (2 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 I'm probably the only one that doesn't mind the low weapon count. After playing BF4 which was bloated with weapons when i only used 2-3. (2 Hours ago)
