Yeah, the movie series is over, but much like "Star Wars," we expect the legend of the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy to endure for many years to come. Therefore, it's not surprising to see EA's new Lord of the Rings: Conquest, which is just over a month away now. This trailer may be in French, but it shows you what Conquest is all about; it's clearly a hack 'n slash action/adventure title more than a strategy experience, which should appeal to the majority of next-gen gamers out there. Several titles in the LotR franchise in the past have been quite good, and we're hoping this turns out to be the best of the bunch. EA finally has their name on a few great titles this generation (Dead Space, Mirror's Edge, etc.), so shouldn't we be excited about Conquest?
