The Lord Of The Rings: Battle For Middle Earth II was a sequel that improved a lot on the original Tolkien-themed real time strategy game.
This expansion pack centers on the Witch King, Sauron's main lieutenant and leader of the Nazgûl, the nine black robe wearing immortals. Over seven missions it charts the Witch King's rise after Saurons' defeat at the hands of the elf/human alliance.
Despite happening centuries before the original game, The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth II, The Rise of the Witch-King, looks pretty much the same. The graphics are good, but aside from a new faction to control most of them are more or less the same as the original.
The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth II, The Rise of the Witch-King is a quality real time strategy expansion. The game is very well designed, and battles feel as epic as they should for a Lord of the Rings title. They are also quite long and it's not unusual for a battle to rage on for an hour, which might put off more casual gamers.
For fans of Tolkien's fantasy classic, The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth II, The Rise of the Witch-King is a good expansion to a very well made and faithful real time strategy title.
