Great wargame featuring characters from TLOTR

Much like the game War In Middle Earth, this is another cool tactical wargame featuring characters from Tolkien's classic book trilogy, Frodo and Aragorn included. It takes part in the realm of Rohan and the player controls the forces of Good during the onslaught of the forces of Evil, namely centered on the conflict with Saruman of Isengard. Basically, you are recreating the battles with the evil orcs. Opposite from the War in Middle Earth, the game is not spanned over the entire course of the books, but solely on the book Two Towers, and you are limited only to Rohan. If you're unfamiliar with certain aspects of the game, you have a tutorial that will get you acquainted with everything you need to know. The characters that can be played with are a lot more elaborate than in War in the Middle Earth, and there are a lot more units. This game is more about tactics and war than about the Lord of the Rings and its characters, which I actually find a good thing, since there is nothing to distract you from what the game really is about. If you like wargames and are a big Tolkien fan as myself, you'll love the game, I am sure of it. Two thumbs up!
