Developed by Liquid Entertainment and published by Vivendi Universal, The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Ring is the first three-dimensional real-time strategy game for PC based on J.R.R. Tolkien's saga of good versus evil, The Lord of the Rings. The environments of The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Ring are designed to allow fans to explore Middle-earth with familiarity, as locations were re-created in detail from Tolkien's books.
Never before possible, players are able to take control of Orcs, Trolls, and Haradrim as they guide the forces of evil into battle for control of the Ring. Players can create and control dozens of military units. They'll conquer the land using evil units as large as the Balrog and as small as the goblins, or protect Middle-earth with good units as large as the Tree Ents and as small as Frodo Baggins. Players can choose play through a 20-mission single-player campaign, or battle with or against up to eight other players online, in one of three multiplayer modes. ~ Damian Francis, All Game Guide
