After 14 years,still manages to scare the crap out of me
It's an alright game,I invested many hours on it,but mostly only on lan-parties.
The problem with the game,just like with Battle for Middle Earth is that EA games made it ;P seriously thought,it's as if they didn't even try..there is no real difference between Easy AI and Hard AI except that it's scripted that Hard AI gets more money at the start and it's buildings and units cost less and take less time to produce,and that's literally all. It uses the same tactics as easy would,it can just master more armies,so it can spam them at your base while you gather your ranks and destroy their command center. This is the point where you won the game,because no matter how much money the AI has it won't re-build it's command center,which means that they won't be able to build almost anything,so once you destroy their last few builders,you are done.
Other then that I would like to point out the obvious OP-ness of USA,but this game has been out for so long,everyone knows that. I'm not saying you can't defeat them but they have some units and abilities which are simply superior to anything the GLA or China can offer.
All in all,this game can provide you with many hours of fun if you are ready for some compromises around balance.
This mod is something,and that is coming from a person who played the first and the second BFME since they were released. Never did I find a mod as complex as this one. There are modders out there who attempt fixing EA's laziness (and this should be appreciated) but no one succeeded as much as the team creating Battles of the Third Age.
I was delivered an overall better experience of the game I knew for years ,it almost felt as if I played a different,better version of it.
The way heroes are evolving and not just leveling,the way the building and technology mechanism is improved,the way mini factions are introduced..it all fits so well. Also the AI is seen as more challenging then before,and the factions are much better balanced then in the vanilla game or other mods. To add up on all that,we have better textures for units and heroes and an improved sound system.
To conclude this,I would just like to thank the team for delivering this masterpiece!
I just can't give it more then 2 and that is for the effort. But to be honest,and I see others mentioned this too,you need to scrap all this and start from 0
The idea is noble and I appreciate it but I just can't force myself to play this. Sorry...
Not sure if I need to write anything,if you played it you experienced it for yourself. If you love the LOTR saga and the MB game this is definitely the mod for you.
A truly enjoyable mod,it is obvious that great effort was put into this work,it even feels like a standalone game. Spent countless hours playing this mod,and it still never gets old. My compliments to the developers,please keep up your great work,and thank you for delivering this masterpiece!
Something this game needed a long time ago. Excellent mod.
Lacks much balance,and could have been much more expanded if they didn't rush so much with releasing it,basically if you don't get a good mod after a while of playing it just gets boring... Otherwise a great game stole hours of my life ever since it was released up until this day.
