War in Middle Earth review

The Games Machine - UK (1989): "Even when you've completed War in Middle Earth there is still plenty to do such as refining your strategies and locating all the hidden objects. There's little difference between the three 16-bit versions reviewed here other than sound and some minor graphical differences, but the game plays just as well on all formats."
