Excelent mod for any Lord of the Rings fan; more over the setting in the Fourth Age prevents you from doing something which is not lore accurate.

I got older and I rarely play games now.

And I play this thing (modded on a 2004. game) all the time.

Love it. Best Tolkien experience in Total War (or any other strategy game).

Simply put, one of the most polished, well executed mod projects I have every played. The attention do detail in all aspects - graphics, music, lore, is almost unparalleled.

The attention to detail, faithfulness to original source material, amazing music, variety of factions, and fun replayability make this an awesome mod. Excellent work, folks!

Great mod, especially for those who love the books. Lore is accurate, battle and campaign is heavily tested for good balance. Future patches will bring custom settlements.


More to enjoy and explore than any mod I have yet experienced. Your life will be richer for adding this mod to it.

Not to mention a very dedicated and responsive mod team; still looking for input (and some praise wouldn't hurt).

Simply the best RTW mod. Amazing! The level of detail and painstaking attention to the lore of Middle Earth makes this mod a must for any LOTR fan!

I think that somebody even thought to do a mod on the 4th age is genius I have played "The New Shadow" and loved it any Tolkien fan that likes Total War should get this mod. I love that they had the imagination to continue what Tolkien didn't finish I want to thank you guys for this wonderful mod

A great, spectacular and just plainly refined mod. Fourth Age Total War oozes polish from every pore, with a lovingly detailed story, carefully and cleverly constructed gameplay mechanics, stunning visuals and incredible immersion.

Its flaws (such as the limited rosters for certain minor factions and the vast majority of bugs) have little to do with the mod itself, and more with the game engine it runs on.

All in all, I would say there are no perfect mods, but Fourth Age Total War damn well comes close.

Loving it but its a bit unstable :/
