The PC version is better. Too bad I can't play it because something went wrong with a file and I can't reinstall it.

Maybe because not everyone has a good enough PC, or some people just prefer consoles

Why would you ever play a RTS game on a console? People should just stick with the PC version so we're all in the same online community and have better controls.

This game is my favorite and most played game this gen. I absolutely love it, mainly because I played Warcraft III back in the day and I'm a big fan of medieval RTS games, so I just had to buy this game upon release. Not to mention it's based on LOTR. I'm sorry, but in my opnion, this game is fantastic.
