Maybe, the second level was entertaining for some people. But I can tell you that the third and fourth levels are a bit boring and too short.   Continue reading

    Some people may find the first game play video of The Lord of the Rings: Conquest that we released a few days ago a little boring. Hopefully, they will find this game play video more exciting. In this level, I played the following classes: Archer, Scout, Warrior and Mage (Gandalf as hero). Scout may not be a very powerful unit. But his Cloak attack is powerful enough to kill Grima Wormtongue in one strike by sneak-approaching and standing right behind him. Another interesting aspect of this level is that you will play an Ent almost at the end. You can smash and kill a few bad guys at a time with just one strike.   Continue reading

    Mirror's Edge DICE Mac Boot Camp

    Mirror’s Edge is one of the latest games released by Electronic Arts. It was released in January 13th just as The Lord of the Rings: Conquest was.

    So what kind of game is Mirror’s Edge? It’s a bit difficult to describe it. It’s a first-person action game where you play the character of Faith Connors. She is a Runner, a person who physically delivers messages. She is good at jumping from one building to another, running away from enemies. So this game is kind of the modern version of Prince of Persia 2008. You spend quite a lot of time figuring out where to go and how to get ‘there.’

    I won’t say this is a good or bad game. I can tell you that the graphic quality in depicting city life is pretty good. Nonetheless, the audio quality is bad. Traffic noise is so loud that you can’t hear what Faith, her sister and other people are talking about. Traffic noise can be annoying even while Faith is inside a building.

    So what kind of game is The Lord of the Rings: Conquest? Remember a 2003 game called The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King? It’s a great action game published by EA Games. Some people didn’t like it partly because they said the game was used to advertise the movies. The Lord of the Rings: Conquest is a bit similar to The Return of the King in game-play-wise. You won’t play any of the movie characters in this game, though. Some people said that The Return of the King was a tough game. In this game, if you die, you will be respawn and allowed to change characters.
