The Edain Mod aims to take you deeper into Middle-Earth than ever before and create a game worthy of Tolkien's books and Peter Jackson's movies. In our quest for lore accuracy, visual quality and deeper gameplay, we overhauled every aspect of the original game to craft a new, immersive Lord of the Rings experience. Discover the new factions of Lothlorien and Rohan, field new units and heroes for each of the existing factions, enjoy a visual style closer to the movies and unleash the power of the One Ring with individual Ring heroes for every factions. Light or Shadow, Defender or Conqueror... the choice is yours.
This is an awesome Mod, those who love The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth and all kid of LOTR games, must try this mod. This Mod is published by -Reshef- here on ModDB and is part of the Edain Team group.
The positives of the Mod: It's almost everything! The Battle for Middle-earth is an incredibly well crafted strategy game made by Electronic Arts and with this mod, makes the game twice as better than it was. The graphics and quality of this mod makes the game better. You get new heroes, soldiers, maps, upgrades and new power.
What I liked about this mod very well, is that you can give the One Ring to the others heroes. You get the right color for your people, when you play you will get the original color to all your troops and heroes. And it is very easy to install this mod, it also has a start menu that you can choose to play the original or this mod.
I also see that you can create new types of buildings, you can get extra buildings from power, you get different powers from the different teams that you play.
The negative of the Mod : I noticed that you can not create your own hero, which surprised me a bit. And that the people inside the game speak German and so it is with the text also. I have not found anything other than that for the time.
And I have also seen that the Edain Team is still working with this type of Mod that comes with many new type of surprises soon.
So my full scores for this Mod is - 10 / I think that this mod is incredibly good and I know that it can be better. I do not think that Electronic Arts could have made this better than what Edain Team has done now.
The best and most detailed mod of Rotwk made by the most hardworking , and always active mature modding community ,who never disappoint.They are always available to help you out and as quickly as they can ,even better than EA I'd say.They always welcome suggestions and count them in somewhere in their minds ,so perhaps one day you could see them and feel deja vu in future versions.
As far as the mod itself , its stable ,comprehensive and logical ,most importantly faithful to Tolkien's lotr series and the hobbit (in term of their campaign).Its just PERFECT.... that's all i can cover in words.
This mod certainly takes you deeper into Middle Earth. More maps are included and there are new fractions: Arnor, Rohan, Imladris, Lothlorien. Also the already existing fractions of Dwarves, Isengart, Mordor, Gondor and Angmar are improved!
But ofcouse in every fair review there should be suggestions for improvement. First of all, to reach more people with this incredible mod the makers should really make an English version. Of this, the makers are very much aware and it should be a number one priority for the next update. Secondly, there are a few bugs in the new campaign, (which follows the war of the dwarves): the Mirkwoord and Dunland map for instance. These missions cannot be completed without the help of fixes that can be found on the Edain mod forum but they can’t however get rid of all the problems. This means that the campaign cannot be completed.
Overall this mod deserves a fair 8!
