  • Excerpt: Lord Of The Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar is a game that has been in development quite some time. It was announced back in 1998 by Sierra-Online but due to financial troubles it was put on hold until Turbine in 2003 took over. They continued development and made a truly magnificent game.

  • Conclusion: There’s plenty of room for Turbine to add new content and goodies for the LOTRO community, though they need to concentrate on more immediate matters of ironing out some rough edges, which are few and far between luckily.

  • Excerpt: Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar , or LOTRO for short, is the first massively multiplayer online RPG set in the Lord of the Rings universe. As such, it has a high level to rise to, if it wishes to keep both MMO players and fans of the series interested in it.

  • Excerpt: Date: 9/10/2007 It really is about time that Tolkien's seminal classic work The Lord of the Rings got the MMORPG treatment. After all, it was The Lord of the Rings that served as inspiration for Dungeons & Dragons, the paper RPG that influences the design of PC RPGs to this day.

  • Excerpt: If you're going up against World of Warcraft , you better have an ace up your sleeve. And what better trump card than the father of modern fantasy, J.R.R. Tolkien? The developers at Turbine have plenty of experience making MMOs, and this time, they've got the definitive license to back their...

  • Excerpt: Graphics & Sound: Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar could have been a spectacular disaster on the scale of Star Wars Galaxies . Creating a meaningful play experience in an already well-defined universe is difficult enough for a single-player game, so in a massively-multiplayer one, it...
