Top Lord of the Rings games
Amazon is working on two very interesting “Lord of the Rings” projects. The first is a TV series based on the second era, and the second is LotR MMO. However, it takes a long time to see any of them. TV shows will not start until 2021, and the MMO has not yet released a date.
To beat us, let’s take a look at some of the best Lord of the Rings video games that have appeared over the years. The list contains everything from classic to newer titles.
The Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle-earth II (2006)
EA’s “Clash of Middle-earth” was surprisingly good, following closely behind, and was evenly matched with some of the best real-time strategy games on the market at the time. One notable difference between its predecessor and Battle of Middle-earth 2 is the freedom of the player. “Middle-earth II” allows players to create any number of buildings anywhere on the map, thereby increasing the flexibility of the game.
Battle of Middle-earth II also adds goblins, dwarves and elves as playable factions. The rise of the Witch King expansion pack will also add Angmar.
The game also appeared in the “Ring of War” mode from the first game, which cleverly combines role-based strategy with a real-time strategy game style.
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)
Franchise games are always bad. Usually, they are just a lazy cash game designed to take advantage of the popularity of summer blockbusters. However, this is not the case in The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. Facts have proved that the game is very interesting, and while enjoying the main events of the movie, it also has an interesting and fascinating gameplay, which is very successful.
Just like its predecessor “The Twin Towers”, “The Return of the King” is an innovative and sophisticated game that developers can play compared to Gauntlet. Unlike the first game, although “The Return of the King” contains many stories, more playable characters and unique environmental interactions. The game also has a collaborative mode that allows you to play with friends.
The size of the game is also much larger than the twin towers. In the twin towers, players explore twice the size of the map and fight with enemies twice.
LEGO The Lord of the Rings (2012)
Lego bricks have long been a decent game for children, recreating the franchise rights of large companies in a humorous way. Lego Lord of the Rings is a good example. The game was one of the first to include audio clips of movies, but they managed to use their own comics in most of the scenes.
The game covers the three original events of the movie. Players can control more than 80 characters. Each character has its own unique ability to help them solve problems. There is also a free roaming mode in which players can fully explore the world of Lego Middle Earth.
It is not the most exciting game for adults, but it is the perfect way to tell children about miraculous phenomena.
The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age (2004)
What makes “Third Age” unique is that it was one of the few games that were not entirely based on movies at the time. the film. Instead, the events of the third era paralleled the movies, and many events were intertwined. However, RPG also contains completely unique content, and the player character is completely new.
Like any RPG, each area of the game must complete a set of tasks. But what makes the third age unique is the evil situation. Once the player wins the game area, they can be redirected to evil mode, where the player can control Sauron’s troops. The player is forced to complete the battle without any rescue after the battle. If successful, they can unlock new items for the main player character. This is a unique extra layer that helps waste game time.
The game proved that the Lord of the Rings RPG may be crazy. Unfortunately, there are no more similar games.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor (2014)
Middle-earth: “Shadow of Mordor” exploded when it was released in 2014. It has released a brand new character, Mordor’s physical plot, and the unique “Nemesis” system that produces the orc captain will not forget that players face it. The plot is a bit impolite, and playing with Sharia is very fast and spacious, but overall it is an excellent and exciting game.
The player controls Talion, who is the goalkeeper and seeks revenge after he and his family are killed by Black Soron. Talion’s mysterious cover gave him a new life, and later appeared in the form of Celebrimbor-Forge One Episode.
The two work together to improve Talion’s abilities and help human slaves find freedom in Mordor and meet a group of unique personalities. The boss battle is a bit unbelievable, but Nemesis’s unique and well-made system makes the game stand out as one of the best Lord of the Rings games.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of War (2015)
This may be controversial, but “Shadow of War” will adopt the work done by “Shadow of Mordor” and have been improved in almost all aspects. The story is still everywhere, but the game offers a broader scale, a more complex Nemesis system, and a new basic raid, making tens or even hundreds of hours of game time possible.
The biggest and best change has come to the enemy’s regime. One of Modo’s complaints is that once Talien settles down long enough, there is basically nothing to stop him. With the more advanced upgrade system and the opportunity for the orc leader to go crazy, the Shadow of Mordor will not face this problem. Regardless of your level, it can usually kill you completely, and some may not even be executed. You can combine it with other layers of gears, fortresses and other Mods, and the Nemesis system of “Shadow of War” can be the entire game itself.
Shadow of War also has areas to be explored in the main game, each area is obviously different, and has its own row of elves to pass through.
Despite the troubled storyline and not many deals, “Shadow of War” is indeed a compelling game that has improved its predecessor in almost all aspects.
