Very Enjoyable, The first RTS game that actually clicks.

The graphics are pretty good, for an Xbox 360 title they are pretty lacking but nothing horrible. Its not the most graphical game I have ever seen, but still, its good enough for what it is. The animations are great, you can zoom in and out to see the different battles taking place, which is pretty cool. The sound really good also, you can hear the men charging the enemy, weapons clinging against other metal and a final "yell" as they win the battle. All in all, EA did a fine job on making it sound like your on the battlefield. The music of the game is what you would excpet, LOTR music, thats about all.
There is a online multiplayer attached to this game, which I havn't gotten into because of the EA servers being down for work, but as far as I know there are 5 different game types and up to four people can play on any one map. The other modes of the game include the campaign, which is "good and evil", so there are really two campaigns total to go through along with a nice "skrimage" feature that alows you to have some instant action.
Something I forgot to mention, the controls. Surprisingly, they are very well designed. EA did a very good job with this, its not just some "port" of the PC version, its an actual re-designed layout for Xbox 360 itself. You use your right and left triggers and make your base, and create your army, its easy to make and move. I tip my hat to you EA.
Overall, LOTR: BFME II is a great and fun expenience. If you have an Xbox 360 and have some money to blow, then this is the game for you. If not, but your still a fan of RTS or LOTR then buy it, its worth your money and is a great time.
