Third Age - Total War is a total conversion for 'Medieval II: Total War - Kingdoms Expansion' that brings you into the world of Middle-earth.
This is an amazing Mod, those who love total war and LOTR. This Mod is published by TW_King_Kong here on ModDB and is the leader of 'Third Age - Total War'
The positives of the Mod: Here you can play all the good things from LOTR and have great war if you will be humans or orcs that is entirely up to you. There are many different types of soldiers and amazing made maps! This is a Mod that has been a big surprise for me, when it came.
I enjoy the upgrade soldiers, such as Gondor soldiers with armor that one can'll develop it to get more armor to his soldiers. Map game is incredibly fun, plus you can play all heroes from LOTR like, Boromir, Frodo, Sam, Faramir, Legolas, etc. The quality of the mod is good and the view and provide a good experience of the game itself.
The negative of the Mod : It can be a little difficult for some people, playing history section to put it on hard for it to work. Mod and some problems with uninterrupted game play as a great war in a simple path that the game can end by itself if you take any wrong or too much of one thing. Some have also had trouble installing the game because you have to have Medieval 2 Total War Kingdoms or Gold edition.
So my full scores for this Mod is - 9 / Which also means this Mod is Great!
Good mod :)
Excellent mod. A lot of love and talent went into this project. Beautiful models and textures and well-conceived structure. Next to Battle for Middle Earth 2 (which has better skirmishes, but a weaker meta-game), it's the best LotR strategy game out there. I especially like the large number of factions available and how each has their own personality. It also has music and cutscenes that are incorporated in a very professional way. I'll probably never play Medieval 2 again, since this mod is vastly superior to the core game.
My only (minor) complaint about the mod has to do with how it over-reaches regarding difficulty. The creators gave the AI some rather ridiculous advantages, such as continuous spawning of units, extra resources each turn, and a few other perks. On medium difficulty, you can get swamped by AI spamming even as your own economy plunges into debt, allowing for no new recruitment of units. Also, there are a few questionable scenario set-ups that will lead to frustration for many--such as starting Gondor off in a two-front war with Mordor and Harad. Fortunately, if you are willing to dig around a bit in the data files, you can fix all of this, making the mod near perfect. Much of the code is clearly marked and fairly easy to understand, so you can tailor it to your liking.
Aside from the occasional black screen or crash to desktop, I have had a great deal of fun with this mod. The creators should be highly commended for their accomplishment, which reveals a good amount of talent, hard work, and vision. Many thanks!
Best Mod Ever Made Very Creative Well Made And All Out AWESOME
April 24th, 2011. Still the best mod I've played.
I have nothing to say... but awesome
A stand-out mod for M2TW. The quality of the units, campaign map and AI is all well above par, though there are a number of minor imperfections that mar the mod slightly for a lore enthusiast like me. All in all though, a fantastic achievement, and is well recognised given its popularity and success in the ModDB 2010 awards.
Come the next release, however, I am sure that any imperfections as I see them will be forgiven with the release of the custom settlements. Minas Tirith? Yes please.
