The Lord of the Rings: War of the Ring

The Lord of the Rings: War of the Ring is a 2003 real-time strategy game developed by Liquid Entertainment. It plays much like Warcraft III with added features, some previously used in Battle Realms. A similar layout and control system is used, and the player gets to control hero units with special abilities. Most regular units also have abilities of their own. The game also follows certain RTS conventions such as having rally points and controlling unit creation and purchase of upgrades at designated buildings.
