Yes.. well... I wouldn't exactly call this a deviation from the storyline, but a small lack of emotion in the picture. They sure don't seem too upset or concerned that they're about to be flatted by a massive army of orcs.

Of course, this doesn't matter

you will be impressed by the ai in the game. the units dont usually (they didnt in the movies i watched about this game) stand around and do nothing. when they win battles they cheer, when a gigantic orc comes along or an elephant they will back off a little and form up. quite impressive. and then ents (the tree like creatures) when they catch on fire (yeah you can set them on fire) they start to panic and run off to find water.

Hehe cool cool. This is all well and good, assuming that I can tell them to *not* do these things. Keeping the ent where it is for a couple more seconds might mean the difference between winning and losing a battle.
