The game has all the hallmarks of a game which has been crafted slowly and painstakingly. I can thoroughly recommend this game to Tolkien fans and anyone who enjoys a strategic challenge. Great stuff.
As would be expected, there's not so much graphic detail in 8-bit versions of War in Middle Earth, but if anything there's more of a challenge with the option to set levels of difficulty. Fans of the Mike Singleton
approach to games design will recognise his touch.
Overall, the game's graphics are generally average – sound is nonexistent – and the combat sequences are pretty hard to control. That said, War In The Middle Earth goes to prove that if a games concept is sound and has the ability to capture your imagination – which this product certainly does – you don't need lots of flashy graphics to produce an enjoyable computer game.
War in Middle Earth is very disappointing. Tolkien fans will find the lack of detail frustrating while wargamers will find this too straightforward to offer a lasting challenge.
