Alpha Player Journals

Alpha Player Journals -

Turbine has released a new set of Alpha Player Journals for their highly-anticipated MMORPG, Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar. There are too many to print here, but you can read all of the published testimonials by clicking the link below:


LOTRO's Alpha is well underway, and we've asked players to tear themselves away from Middle-earth long enough to write up a quick summary of their overall impressions of the game so far. Below are some of those summaries. If you haven't completed your Beta Application yet , what are you waiting for?

This alpha is truly amazing. Last night I loved every minute of the 8 hours straight I played it! Right off the bat, the graphics felt like they came right out of the head of Tolkien himself. The animations of the alpha are very smooth and well designed. It's very interesting how the characters of each race end up in Archet in a very unique way; and the story of Archet itself is very captivating.

Speaking of Archet, for as crowded as the place was, the server stability was terrific. The quests in Archet set a good pace to learn some of the environment, fight enemies, and gather plants and other items. After leaving Archet and going back to the Shire with my Hobbit burglar (great class design so far, by the way), I did some quests for the Bounders. The quests may not have been epic, but you felt like you were doing something great for those who live in the Shire. The Shire has a great feel to it. The music is superb and fits the area well. I'd continue to write more praise about the game, but I'm afraid I've been away from it to long writing this to begin with!
