Interesting, but has the same flaws as the other movie battles. Don't get me wrong, I think most of the costumes and designs - particularly those of the LotR trilogy - are great (except for the exaggerated bits), but whenever the script deviates from the book, the tactics (and the story) start to suck. Even in the better parts of original trilogy.

Yes, unfortunately. It's basically where I got my user name from (one of the Armenian kings).
Speaking of RTW (the first one, not the second), it has a mod called Fourth Age Total War (recently updated with a new, completely reworked release called Dominion of Men; features custom battle maps for Minas Tirith etc., and a building tree system unlike any other you'll see in a RTW), which is an excellent and lore-accurate what-if scenario set in the Fourth Age of Middle-earth some time after Aragorn's reign. It has great atmosphere and is highly addictive. And it's not based on the movies
Tigranes do you think you could put up a few screenshots from the Fourth Age Total War? I always felt like playing Rome Total War was a bit like playing a movie, because of the camera views and epic scale of the battles.
