The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth II is the sequel to the critically acclaimed RTS game The Lord of the Rings and gives J.R.R. Tolkien fans the chance to experience all that Middle Earth was meant to be. It’s certainly the closest that you have ever been able to get to the fantasy master’s original vision of Middle Earth in a videogame.

The game boasts a load of new content from Tolkien's original fiction, which means that you can delve deeper into Middle Earth than ever before and engage in new battles that go way beyond the award-winning movie trilogy.

You might, for example, choose to wage a bloody war in the North and assume command of the most mythologised civilizations in all of Middle Earth’s history – the Elven and Dwarven armies. You might instead choose to fight on the side of Evil with various heroes and creatures that have never been seen in The Lord of the Rings films.

If you are something of a homemaker you may even build your own landmark castle with fully customizable and upgradeable fortresses and walls. That should keep those pesky Orcs at bay!

Defend or overtake never-before-seen lands of Middle Earth such as Dol Guldur, The Misty Mountains, and Mirkwood as you unleash powerful new weapons and abilities - summoning dragons, causing volcanoes to erupt, or bringing down cataclysmic lightning strikes.

But beware, with greater power comes greater adversity. Your enemies, commanded by a powerful new AI system, possess a greater tactical edge and more powerful spells. Will your armies have the fortitude to persevere? This superb RTS is a must for fans of Middle Earth and fans of great strategy games too.
