EA surprised everyone earlier this year by announcing Battle For Middle Earth II on Xbox 360. This type of games have never really been succesfully ported on consoles due to the lack of mice on these systems. Well it looks like EA finally overcame the issue with a very well thought control and selection system. The gameplay never really feels more awkward than it should be with a pad, except when selecting very small units.
I'm not a fan at all of these type of games so I really can't give you guys any real impressions, but enjoy this long video showing most of the tutorial level. This should give you a very good idea of how this game controls.
It's difficult for me to cut anything more out of this video, so only the low quality version will be available. A 720p version would be much too big, and honestly this is not the type of game that really showcases the 360's power.

one coming to mind right now. But I'm sure there's others I'm just not recalling at the moment. (4 Hours ago)
Though in all honesty, I don't believe Ubisoft will do it, and if they do, it won't be anytime soon. If I'm not mistaken, there's not many FPS open world games. Homefront: The Revolution is the only (4 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: I want a different enough style of gameplay, in hopes of a different enough game experience. Far Cry: Primal burned me out, it was exotic, but at one point I just saw a poorer FC3 and 4. (4 Hours ago)
@Sdarts: I think you'll get more fantasy Far Cry.. which seems to be what you want.. but I doubt they'll be called "5" or "6" (4 Hours ago)
