Rated T for Violence.

Lord Of The Rings: The Battle For Middle Earth is one of the many Lord Of The Rings video games in the series which try to cash in on the new Lord Of The Rings trilogy.The new Lord Of The Rings movies are excellent.Great performances and plot and plenty of battle scenes and special effects make the film series so great.I cant wait for The Hobbit movie to come out(if it does).The Lord Of The Rings video games are just as great as the film series.I have only played this one but it surprised me very much.The third person view is great unlike most games of this sort which have you looking top-down like in Grand Theft Auto 1 and 2.The graphics in this game are simply amazing and so is the gameplay.There is plenty of great action in this game.Fans of the LOTR series should get this game.They wont regret it.I know I didn't.

9/10
