It doesn't look anything like Middle Earth, it's all neon colors and fantasy monsters that have nothing to do with Middle Earth.

Dunno about the quality of the game, but for future reference, I never wanted to play solely as the dwarves or goblins.

It is worse than the first one.
Just added different colors.

Looks like they just overlayed something on top of the first one.

I was very excited for this, but Galactic Civilizations rules my spare time. Just won my first 8 AI - large galaxy setup, through influence no less. Awesome endgame video too, watching everyone eat your race's food, do your race's dances etc. Just brilliant.

I LUUURRVVVV GALCIV2!!!!1!!!!1

I'll pick this up on the cheap sometime in the future.

what are you guys talking about? this game should be Game of the Year

I play and replayed every byte of the Demo.. I love this game

I have been playing the beta as well (pre-ordered it) and I love everything about it.

There are tonnes of options for each race. A lot of content. Great multiplayer battles. Large scale battles.

I am a LotR:BfME2 fanboi!

If you are looking for an RTS to play buy this. A hundred times better than Star Wars: Empire at War.
