Joystiq just posted a round up of some of the reviews for LOTR: The Battle for Middle-earth II. I got the game last night and need to offer a important tip: go through the tutorial. While it may seem like a no brainer, here is the real tip: to find the tutorial, scroll left on the D-pad from Single Player->Tutorials. If you just jump in to the single player, you’ll be completely lost. Trust me. It looks like GameDaily could have used that tip.
Edit: GameDaily reviewer Bryan Dawson has posted in the comments more details about his review. Thanks for stopping by Bryan.
Edit: Read more details and watch my interview with the Lou Castle, one of the producers, on Xbox.com.
Edit: Some folks are having problems logging into the EA server to play this game. I posted the temporay work around over at the Xbox forums.
