Third Age - Total War is a total conversion for 'Medieval II: Total War - Kingdoms Expansion' that brings you into the world of Middle-earth.
It's hard not to give this one a 10.
It has almost everything you'd want from a LOTR mod in M2TW, and much more.
The only criticisms that i could give: As for right now, it lacks some really important plot parts from the earlier Third Age.
But Sub-Campaigns for each faction (or some) could definitely help on this subject.
Third Age: Total War is an amazing mod. The vissuals are amazing, the gameplay is balanced and the upcoming custom settlements are just stunning. This mod easily trumps ALL other LOTR rts games and is a mod that any Middle Earth fan should keep their eye on.
