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 8.
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.
Optically a true miracle, well done balancing and great use of the LotR lore; AI benefits in the campaing are unnecessary and annoying;
Orc-style settlements are ugly and almost undefendable due to their weak defences (no towers at all)
