The Balrog is one of Middle-Earth's
most dangerous creatures with the ability to conjure fire and smoke. Accompanied by a fiery whip, the Balrog can cause much devastation to any who came upon him. During the First Age of Middle Earth, the Balrogs went into hiding but later returned to their land wreaking havoc on those who forced them to flee from their lands.
The Balrog have appeared in many of the Lord of the Rings video game titles. Games such as The Battle for Middle Earth
, The War of the Ring
, and The Lord of the Rings: Conquest
all contain the fearsome beast. In the Real Time Strategy games based on the Lord of the Rings universe, the Balrog is one of the toughest units on the battlefield. If not stopped quickly a Balrog can deal out a massive amount of damage on units and structures under your control. Recently players have had the chance to take control of this creature in a more action oriented fashion in The Lord of the Rings Conquest. In this Star Wars: Battlefront
styled game the Balrog is one of the largest enemies that you may encounter, aside from cave trolls
and the like. When playing as the Balrog, players can easily take out enemies and leave the opposition in disarray if played properly.
