4.0 out of 5 stars A Review from a Veteran MMORPG Player. September 28, 2007
By Gregory
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been playing MMORPGs (Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games) now for about three years. My MMO gaming experience includes Star Wars Galaxies, World of Warcraft, Guild Wars and Lord of the Rings Online. I thought I would post a simple review of the game that was posted simply in terms of POSITIVES and NEGATIVES, from the perspective of a veteran MMORPG player.

POSITIVES
---------

* Graphics. Turbine did an excellent job creating the world of middle earth. Immersion is NOT a problem in this game.

* Character customization. You can modify hair styles, facial features, skin color, eye color, and much more. In addition, the ability to use dye in order to customize your appearance is nice. Also, you don't have the problem with "clown armor" that games like World of Warcraft has. That is, armor that is multicolored and un-coordinated. Using dye, you can make any armor set look sleek.

* Quests. There are so many quests in this game that I feel like I will never run out! I never find myself endlessly grinding for XP. Turbine did a good job with the quests and the associated story lines.

* Crafting. The crafting system is terrific. Albeit, it is expensive to level your skills up. For this reason, I usually recommend that someone level their character first, THEN focus on crafting.

* Server populations. There are plenty of people playing this game. And the people that play seem to be much more mature than other populations on other games.

* Sound. The battle sounds are SUPERB. Battles sound like swords, axes, shields, maces, etc. are actually swinging and contacting each other.

* Limited presence of magic. Many fantasy games are heavy into the magic aspect of the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, A Franchise-Themed MMORPG Done Right April 24, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been playing since the middle of closed beta. I never leveled up very far, but I have nonetheless spent countless hours in Middle Earth, primarily as a Hobbit. Now I plan to purchase a Lifetime Membership!!

Lord of the Rings Online is, of course, a Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game based on the story of J.R.R. Tolkien's work, The Lord of the Rings. The game is true to the books, as much as the New Line Cinema motion pictures were, although not so much true to the movies (which it doesn't try to be). What I find impressive is that every little corner of Middle Earth that was mapped out in the books have in fact been mapped out here in LOTRO--and indeed the books were plentifully detailed in maps and in written descriptions of the fictional universe of Middle Earth. But, for the most part, the subtleties of what is described in the book have been referenced if not fully implemented in the game, particularly in the Shire, all the way from the Sackville-Bagginses to the former Baggins home on the top of the hill at Bag End to the shoeless hobbits' feet! Of course, most LOTRO players will put shoes on their hobbit feet since shoes add armor, but at least the NPCs (non-player characters) are true to the shoelessness.

One step into Michel Delving and you'll quickly notice the unique music system implemented in the game. People are often standing around holding their lutes playing Stairway to Heaven or Row, Row, Row Your Boat. The ability to play notes directly into the game world has been implemented, albeit not in any way comparable to MIDI-driven music software.

While the graphics and landscapes and sky effects ("ooohh, pretty rainbow!", "wow, look at that flock of birds in the sky!

4.0 out of 5 stars Immerse yourself in Middle Earth June 24, 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
As a huge fan of JRR Tolkien I review this game with a bit of a bias. While there have been video games set in Middle Earth before, none of them has offered what this one does: complete freedom to quest, explore--just immerse oneself fully in the world Tolkien created. As a gateway into Tolkien's world this game succeeds admirably--as an MMORPG in general, however, it can't avoid the shadow of a little game called World of Warcraft.

The comparison is inevitable since WoW is and has been the dominant force in MMORPG gaming since its release in 2004. In reviewing this game, then, I will sometimes compare it to WoW.

Audience/community: This game targets both LOTR fans and MMORPG gamers in general. While I believe Turbine intended to shoot for a more mature audience for Lord of the Rings Online than is present in World of Warcraft I think this is only partially the case. I have encountered immature and annoying people in LOTRO just as I do daily in WoW. The Middle-Earth community as a whole is more mature, but I suspect that will change if LOTRO can ever rival WoW's popularity.

Control: This is LOTRO's biggest downfall. While the interface is very accessible and combat is relatively easy to perform, the action lacks the fluidity that WoW has. The characters are somewhat stiff and awkward as they fight--something I expected from a game like this until a couple years ago. It is not enough to seriously hinder the game, but it is a significant drawback for anyone who plays WoW.

Gameplay: The gameplay is excellent. Not only are there more than enough quests to go around, there are also side objectives called Deeds which don't give your character experience but which do provide for added customization.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a great expansion, but wish more people played lotro.
this expansion was pretty meh for a solo/duo player, you need to bring a full group for a lot of the stuff. This used to be end-game so it's not balanced for an empty zone anymore. Read more
