Ever wondered what would have happened to Middle-earth if Sauron had beaten the hobbits, elves et al at the end of The Lord of the Rings?

This impressive epic, which features all the massive battles from Peter Jackson’s film, gives you the chance to find out. Players decide whether to fight as one of theFellowship or follow a darker path, kept company by orcs and ringwraiths. Strategic combat is key, and taking advantage of your enemies’ weak spots on the battlefield is where you’ll gain advantages.A treat for Tolkein and strategy fans alike.
