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.
I like that its fully in english now (although it was still pretty playable), but we lost the play-style of bfme 2. 3.8v was amazing and I would have liked if that could have got finished. You had such a cool thing going there, with the ring hero system (even if there was some unbalanced heroes) and the way Sauron leveled and the lack of leveling for Imladris. It all made sense to someone who's read all the lotr source material. But now all the buildings are static, and I get no tactical way to place buildings. It really tied my hands for strategy and overall thinking in the game. A well placed arrow tower with upgraded, elite archers could make the whole difference in the game, as well as a strong siege unit to blow that tower up. If I wanted a modded version of bfme 1 I would have got a mod for bfme 1. 4.0 was a step backwards for me and I hope others see it this way so we can get back to what 3.8 was doing which is going back to bfme 2 rotwk roots!
Although there is plenty of new content and lots of interesting new things, the mod lacks replay value. The A.I. is broken, never uses powers , and is next to useless on the hardest difficulty. All additional units brought into the mod only SPRECHEN DEUTCSH (German). Minor bugs here and there such as ring spawns in inaccessible areas. The mod team gives out plenty of updates but takes years to produce actual results for players to enjoy. The Fan base is rather arrogant, rude, and sarcastic when it comes to helping new players or answering questions. 4/10. 3 for content, 1 for new maps.
