LOTR TBFME II

Or for those of you who are going "WTF", Lord of the Rings The Battle for Middle Earth II is coming out... And what better to precede it than: A demo! Here is the site where I found the demo to download: http://www.ea.com/official/lordoftherings/bfme2/us/demodownload.jsp

 

File download believes that this will take something like 13 hours, so... Yeah, might have to do some of this at night... Anyways, looks like a great RTS- I know I enjoyed the original BFME, and this one promises dragons and such in addition to automatically doing what makes the most tactical sense (IE pikemen to the front, infatry behind them, archers behind them). In addition to this there are new races to play as, such as Dwarves, Goblins, and Elves... So, yeah, for any of the other nerds out there :wink: ... Wow, a whole percent downloaded while I typed all that!

I found the demo to be quite good. Only the first two tutorials and two skirmish maps. But it really looks to be a great game.

 

Finally, removing the building slots (unlike a certain other new RTS) in favor of a more free building placement. And building walls with fortifications and such.. cool. Naval battles will also be a part of the game.

 

I can't think of anything bad about the demo except it requires Windows XP to run. Hope to get this game when it is finally released

Fighting is terrible, but not as terrible as losing the will to fight.

Wow, two one post gaps in a row... But I seriously have to ask this: Why are you saying "Thanks" Cain? Did you download the demo based on Evader's recomendation? And if so, how did you do so in less than 14 hours?

Loll - I am downloading it.

 

As for the thanks ... well usually Evaders criticises games that I am supporting in a way or another (I bet he never expected me to be on both sides) - (*See my new sig)

I never said I hated any of the games you do. I just don't like to use mere speculation - I prefer proof.

 

I had it already downloaded, after the first day of the demo release. But I haven't actually been able to play it until recently (lack of time.. etc etc etc)

:arrow:Evaders99 ... I have my reasons and you know them well ;)

 

:arrow: But you are a nice guy after all - fair I must say - so anyway lets stop argueing and pls give us some help at PFF - we really need it.

 

:arrow: If it wasn't for your 2004 news on SWR about EAW - PFF have had never existed now. So going back on the timeline - the eaw spark started form you.

Yes, definitely. Improvements to the graphics, gameplay, plus new storyline and races. They can use all the LOTR resources, not just what was shown in the movies. Good stuff all-around

*Nods Feverantly* I'll download the torrent, I mean, buy the game, as soon as its posted. I mean in stores! :lol: Good demo-played around as the dwarves and had some fun beating the living daylights out of the goblins- kind of wish they had included men of the West, though... Anyone know if there's a mod that cracked open some features out yet/how you would crack open said features?

I'd tend to offer the opposite- I'm playing as goblins against Dwarves and pretty much fighting to survive, even with all of the powers purchased and all of the heros at level 10! 'Course I'm playing this against a hard army, so... Anyone want to go on line with the demo?
