A short campaign, new units, fixes to the original title all add up to an expansion that is worthy of being on the shelf of Middle-earth gamers. Witch-King may not leave that same sense of wonder as when the original Battle for Middle-earth II launched, but it is – nonetheless – a challenging game that offers a new look at the rich tapestry of Tolkien’s world.

Overall, EA LA has created a good expansion with a lot of good additions. Angmar is an interesting faction, with options for those who love micromanagement but still plenty of options for those that don’t. The campaign certainly has its moments but some design decisions and an Angmar faction that isn't as visually interesting as the rest of the evil factions makes it a little less appealing over all than I would have liked.

If you enjoy playing Battle for Middle-earth II online and want to keep up with the rest of the multiplayer crowd, purchasing the expansion is a no-brainer. For casual fans, this expansion is purely optional. For single-player fans, there's nothing here that's particularly compelling, unless you're a huge fan of Middle-earth.
