its just about the annihilation of the other wizards (Theoden, Saruman, Sauron, Denethor).
this map, is rather incomplete, for it is impossible to remember every detail of tolkien's work..., even for such a fan as i (have read the 5 books, the hobbit, silmarillion, the 3 of war of the ring, at least 4 times each)if you remember something i didn't, please contact me through my e mail, loky_1@hotmail.com.

about the map

-it has a lot of nodes, placed randomly troughout the map, taking notice of the places that best match each tipe of node
-the underground is quite simple, only underground passages of the mountain lines and underground places described in the books
-the wizards are really close to one another so, id sugest building a large force as quick as possible

raederh I haven't finished the map yet, but the beginning looks very good. Sauron has some very nasty Nazgul heroes available which makes the life challenging at the beginning. I think that Gondor is too strong in this map, but playing Sauron might be more challenging.

It is worth trying.

(This map is fun to play although there is no story in this map. But everybody who has read LOTR has the story in mind when playing this map. It is very exciting to use the Nazgul (8 heroes with 1 Nazgul leader). I recommend playing this map only as Sauron (otherwise it is too easy) and only use the Nazgul for attacking. It is fun to attack with an army of 8 heroes and let them grow from level 1 to super Nazguls.

Balance: 3
Quite good. I had fun and it wasn't too easy. Gondor could be a little bit stronger (more troops at the beginning and more heroes).

Creativity: 4
Some good ideas are included (like the swamps North of Mordor).

Map Design: 3
The map is a good copy of Mordor and Gondor. It looks interessting.

Story/Instructions: 1
(Bad, no story)

This review comes from the now closed site aow2battleground.com. My review system there was a bit different, but I've tried to translate the ratings as good as I can.

Another map inspired by Tolkien's world. I'm not a LoTR expert so I wont be talking much about if the map looks correct or what age it is in, because I really don't have a clue...

You play Sauron and have to fight with Saruman against Denethor and Theoden. Note that there's no Frodo, halflings or elves in this, just humans and orcs.

This is the best Middle Earth map for AoW2 so far.

Balance : 6
Balance is ok at the default setting, but my suggestion to experienced players is to raise the difficulty some.

Graphic details : 6
Looks ok. Placing snow mountains in the middle of grass ones is not always that good looking...

Story/Instructions : 1
No story.

Customization : 4
The four wizards, some heroes and items.

Creativity : 5
Map layout is nice. Some more events could have been made though (there's one event...).

Fun : 6
Since I love Warlords I had some fun on this map... :). But it is a bit too easy on the default setting.
