    I was thinking about getting Warhammer 40k:dawn of war, LOTR:Battle for middle earth, or go old school with Warcraft3+frozen throne. I have played Warhammer 40k and i thought it was really good but is LOTR better?

    I've been playing 40k for a little while now and I've also played of the earlier versions of LOTR and I we really prefer 40k it's really deep, you can modify each of your infantry men with diffrent weapons or just a whole squad of flamethrowers for example. But thats just my humble view.

    When I got Battle for Middle-Earth from Wal-mart I was faced with this same dilemma. Battle for middle earth, rome total war or warhammer 40k? Hmmmm, fuck it lord of the rings!!

    WC3 Battlechest (you get both games and nifty extras) will give you the best story/gameplay IMO. Yeah Dawn of War has some really good gameplay and awesome graphics and LotR looks pretty good (although I hear the gameplay isn't that great) but WC3 has enough RPG elements and lots of good story (not to mention sweet CGI cutscenes) to keep you interested and wanting to play it all the way through.

    Also the Undead campaign is just pure gaming goodness. (I like the Night Elves too, but hey I play one in WoW. :))

    napoleon total war is out today, though it sounds like you've made up your mind. Combat mission is the best strategy game I've ever played, though it is turn based.
