The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth II
BFMEII is a real-time strategy game. Similar to The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth, the game requires that the player build a base with structures to produce units, gather resources, research upgrades, and provide defenses. Units are used to attack the enemy and defend the player's base. Players win matches by eliminating all enemy units and structures. Unlike the first game, the player can build an unlimited number of structures anywhere on the map, allowing for more freedom in base building and unit production. Players can build fortresses to defend their base. They can also construct arrow and catapult towers on building plots around a fortress to provide defensive support, and build walls adjacent to fortresses in any direction and length to provide basic protection. The game's HUD, called the Palantír, shows the player's hero units and their abilities, a mini-map, and objectives.

One of few RTS games I've actually got into, and completed.

Its odd gamerscore total of 705G on Xbox 360 still annoys me, even though I don't play on Xbox anymore! :ROFLMAO: EA should have ported the "Rise of the Witch-King" expansion as DLC, and given their form I'm surprised they didn't.

The game is a bit of a pain to get working on Windows 10, but is doable (Official Patch 1.06 + Unofficial Patch 1.09 should be enough off the top of my head)..

Not my type of game personally. I've played Middle-Earth Shadow of Mordor for Xbox One which was a pretty fun game. Then there's a sequel to that released a bit far back. This seems like a different play style from the description or an RPG type game that isn't run and sword but actual strategy games. I'm sure someone would find it interesting though.

Check out the patches I mentioned.. In addition, you'll need to create an options.ini file in the following location:
C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\My Battle for Middle-earth(tm) II Files

Copy and paste the following:
Code:
AllHealthBars = yes
AlternateMouseSetup = no
AmbientVolume = 50
AudioLOD = High
Brightness = 50
FixedStaticGameLOD = UltraHigh
FlashTutorial = 0
HasSeenLogoMovies = yes
HeatEffects = yes
IdealStaticGameLOD = Low
IsThreadedLoad = yes
MovieVolume = 70
MusicVolume = 70
Resolution = 1680 1050
SFXVolume = 70
ScrollFactor = 50
StaticGameLOD = UltraHigh
TimesInGame = 55
UnitDecals = yes
UseEAX3 = no
VoiceVolume = 70
Customise as necessary (eg. Resolution).


I really loved this game, I really hope they make a 3rd one sometime in the near future!!!
Wishful thinking unfortunately, Ryan. EA Games lost the license to make LotR games about 10 years ago.. :confused:
