Description from the packaging.

For the first time, Tolkien's panoramic vision of the cataclysmic struggle between good and evil has been skillfully crafted into a single computer war game of epic proportions.

Follow in the footsteps of Frodo, Aragorn and Gandalf as they battle to get The One Ring to the Crack of Doom. Ranged against you are all the evil forces of the Dark Lord Sauron and the corrupt wizard Saruman. The odds are overwhelming, but you cannot afford to fail. The destiny of Middle Earth hangs in the balance.

The conflict takes place on a smoothly scrolling map of Middle Earth, true to all the rich detail of Tolkien's books.

Plan your strategies, move your armies into position, and prepare for battle. At your option, you can position Each Individual Warrior in your army in the fully animated battle sequences. Just like your favorite board games, only better because it's animated!

The special portrait gallery lets you view all the key leaders in the fray. You can examine your own forces at any time, however-you must find the palantir before you can spy on the forces of evil.

Each time you play, Sauron will subtly change his war plan, challenging your strategy skills anew. Nazguls, orcs, trolls, and other evil characters deploy to give you a different test of skill in each game.

War in Middle Earth is a classic addition to any war games collection.
