Been playing the demo all day. I think it's actually really good. I was pleased with LotR as a console RTS and this one has much better control than that. I think the graphics are pretty good, way better than LotR and i didn't experience too much slowdown. The in-game camera support is sweet and should boost the camera sales.
I love how they made grouping units really easy, and you can build anything (stuctures, infantry, vehicles, aircraft, support structures) from anywhere. This makes intense combat easier to manage as you don't have to leave the battle to build new things.
