The Battle for Middle Earth II and Rise of the Witchking, is one of my favorite games. But, how could you make the great strategy game, even funnier?

Well, Edain is the answer of that question!

They have modded in some new factions, and more balanced units!
Now, Gondor is not the most over powered faction in BFME II, because the factions are well balanced.

Grapichs: Excellent work, it is better than the main games grapichs.

Gameplay: The gameplay is rich... But I actually want more factions, you need different tactics to each faction, and some factions are to expensive or to cheap, for use on bigger maps!

The Multiplayer is the funniest thing in the mod, and it is a great experience for the players!

Edain has it own campaign... But everything is in german and it could be hard to understand sometimes. I played the first five levels of campaign, before I had to use my german dictionary.

It is a new campaign system, so you should have a piece of paper and a pen, so you don't miss the code at the ending of each level. Because you need the code for the new missions and campaigns.


The mod is very well made. I missed some few things, but it is great work. I will be more happy with more factions, but it is a lot of work.
Some of the "special power" are too a little overpowered, so beware!

You could try the mod, and rate it yourself!

9/10! Good mod, worth trying!

See you in the field!

You could think im exxagerating the value of this mod,but i can only tell you : try with your hands. Edain mod is without any doubt the best RTS based on the LotR series,and,but this is just my opinion,the best RTS overall. While being much more true to tolkien than any other EA's work,it combines great complexity with good-balance in an excellent way. But what,above all things,makes this mod stand out are the models of the units,heroes and buildings,just take a look to the gallery on the site…
