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.
