The way the war was supposed to be fought.

Now, finally, I got my sequel. I have to say it, EA did a great job with Tolkien's fiction. There are a few things that bug me about the game, which i will get into more later. But for now, lets go on with the stuff I like about it.
Free Building- Mixed feelings, but I like the system
6 Races to choose from- You can never go wrong with diversity
Tolkien Fiction- What more can I say, the man was a genius
Exciting Battles- Speaks for its self right?
Story Driven Campaign- Makes you feel like you are in the fiction
War of the Ring Mode- Its like a Risk game, but with no dice rolls!
As with all games (despite what some will tell you, there is no perfect game, yet) there are a few things that need to be addressed in patches or something, before I give it a 10.
Certain Factions are Unbalanced- Elves/Men mainly, in my experience
Glitches- Some times units won't respond to orders, powers freeze
Building HP is way to low- A group of swordsmen do about as much dmg to buildings as siege, which makes siege obsolete.
Well that is it, the glitches I spoke of only occur once in a long while, but it is still frustrating. The staff at EA are planning on addressing the problems with future patches. I enjoy this game fully and I recommend it to fans of RTS and Tolkien.
