OP  4/24/07 5:27:37 PM#1

Staff Writer Donna Desborough takes us into the world of Middle Earth for this review of the just-released MMORPG from Turbine, Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar.

J.R.R. Tolkien created a world that is loved by millions around the world. Turbine has re-created his world for us to play in. Turbine's rendition of Middle Earth is a much awaited game that has many on the edge of their seats. Is it as good as our imaginations?

Actors, take your places!

In the grand scheme of the story, you the player are not the hero. The heroes from the books are still in place, you don't replace them. The player's place in the overall story is that of a supporting role. You are the Free Peoples. All of the unsung heroes and the supporting troops, that is us, the players.

As you go through the quests the story of individuals and yourself will unfold. Your part in the world may seem small in comparison to others, such as Frodo and Samwise, but your story will be just as important.

Read the entire review here.

Agreed it's a wonderful game.

But for a veteran mmo player it's same old same old, and I for one am looking for something new.

I mean really how many EQ and WoW clones must we endure?

First! - Edit: dang, only second :D

No offense, for a review that was a bit short for such a big game. I would like to see what you have to say at e.g. higher levels and different areas, if you still find all those details as you describe them.

It's not what I wanted or expected, but it seems a solid game, so if you can live with some of the "faults" (e.g. I find the minig nodes in the middle of nowhere, say a vegetable field in the shire, a bit, well, too much...)  then it should be okay.
we'll see how it goes. the launch at least in the EU seemed quite smooth.

I do my best to give a realistic score.

I am all over this game. I love it.

It's an EQ clone. That's obvious. But it's done well, and it looks good. The combat and crafting systems are solid and stable. Quality game.

"There are two great powers, and they've been fighting since time began. Every advance in human life, every scrap of knowledge and wisdom and decency we have has been torn by one side from the teeth of the other. Every little increase in human freedom has been fought over ferociously between those who want us to know more and be wiser and stronger, and those who want us to obey and be humble and submit."

— John Parry, to his son Will; "The Subtle Knife," by Phillip Pullman

I've been plaing for the last 10 days on the pre-release EU servers which have now become the retail servers. Plus I also did beta for many months and was familiar with many of the features already.

I hardly call this a review, it read like a game description to me and wondered if the writer even played the game considering her scores. Also Dwarves are male only.

The graphic detail is the best out there atm, so wonder where your score came from.

The game is solid, polished and the smoothest launch I have ever seen. LOTRO is an amazing game! The monster play option is also player vs player, which the writer did not mention.

well you should play it again, since you don't even have the graphics high resolution CD, please get it instal and then rate the graphics again.

You played the beta not the release ;)

God forbid someone doesn't find the game perfect.

Even with the high resolution client the animations are still awkward. Yes the photos look nice but when seeing it in action it's a different story.

I didn't read one bad thing about the game and it is given a 7.8? how is that a review? I don't care about the rating but you have to explain your reasons. Like sound, you gave it a 7 but said nothing bad about it... ???

what kind of review is this...

I have had the high res pack for the last month. And it is installed. My score of the graphics is a realistic one that doesn't jsut encompass if they're pretty at high resolution. It is a score based on an overall look at the graphics.

You are assuming I don't like the game. I do like it. I have a lifetime membership. But in my reviews I will not be unrealistic in my scoring. I am not a fanboy.

First of all, I don't play LOTRO and I have no intention of doing so. I do find this review very strange for three reasons:-

1) The game only released yesterday. Is this a review after a day's play of the final release or the beta?

2) If you can get this review for LOTRO out so quickly, where is your review of Vanguard? If LOTRO was given the time frame it seems Vanguard is getting, LOTRO would have probably had 2 FREE CONTENT ADDITIONS by that time knowing Turbine.

3) I play and love DDO and this site  gave DDO's graphics a score of 9 which I agree with. How can LOTRO get an 8? They are at least on an equal par with DDO! I left EQ2 to go to DDO and one of the reasons was DDO's far superior graphics and art direction!

You must not leave until you free Arlos and have gathered your party safely in this hallway.
