BFME2: Arcade Edition unleashes everything in Middle-Earth. All Powers, All Heroes. Build a custom army by having Elves run alongside Men. Gain access to incredible super powers at a whim including all new ones. Call forth incredible new heroes like Smaug the dragon, Bilbo and Strugmaug, the elder Dragon. This mod is a way of allowing you to do what you want, when you want. You can still play like you normally do but now you have choices.
I downloaded this mod a very long time ago and never installed it because I assumed the gameplay would be ridiculous. Well, the gameplay is completely ridiculous, and it's actually both fun and potentially very challenging. The unit selection can't be faulted, because it actually has everyone coming out of every building, Balrogs shooting out of the ground, trolls, etc etc, high energy. Despite all the features, this one never lags or struggles, so that's a massive positive too!
The new/extra buildings are excellent, and the game is just loads of ridiculous fun, so I've decided to give it a 10. While it is extremely over the top, it's actually a lot better made than 99.9% of mods out there and the effort put in really shows. Do 'Freezing Rain' and 'Darkness' abilities really need to come from a troll drum? Does Sauron really need to summon 3 Balrogs at a time? Simple answer, yes, because the enemy will spam you endlessly with all kinds of strange powers too, so it's not one sided, it's a pretty well balanced game that is completely insane in every aspect.
Perfect score for a modder who has the most severe case of attention deficit disorder in history.
