About a year or two ago I wrote a review and gave it a 10 to this mod. But then I deleted it, because it seemed unfair to rate 10 to a mod in german when I don't speak german.
But now after months of 4.0's release, I can write a review knowing that I have been playing the mod as it should be played.

The amount of work put in this mod it's incredible.
The visuals, the models, etc are of an excellent quality. The maps are very well done.
Every faction has it's own gameplay and strategies. It's easy to spot the amount of study conducted to make this as true to the lore as possible.
Having buildplots again makes combats more enjoyable not only in multiplayer game, but against the AI as well.
Another good point is the return of the Create a Hero system. Which has been rebalanced to fit with the mod's overall gameplay.

I could write down the remaining 3000 characters explaining why this mod is so awesome. But that would be boring.
All I can say is that this mod is worth it, A must have for every LOTR fan.

And to the Devs, thank you for all your efforts and your time to give us (the players) such a fine jewel of modding.
May the Valar watch over you.

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…
