Summary: The game is only free to play until level 25 then you must pay for almost everything you want to do, monthly fee plus expansions make this game quite expensive in the long run. You are "allowed" to pursue your epic story line with the only "reward" being you are allowed to view more of the storyline. I've read the books and seen the movies so nothing new in pursuing the epic story line.
Summary: Extreme good and bad points. Very good graphics, very good gameplay, very unimaginative quests making the game tedious, very annoying intrusive way of trying to get you to spend real money all the time to speed up progress which is very slow. It reminds me of Guild Wars but somehow doesn't give quite the same feeling of really being there, it's more of a grind and less emotionally engaging.
Summary: This is one of the best MMO's I have ever played! The storyline and the lore of the game is so immersible it's unreal! Right out of the gate you will see a lot of the popular characters from LOTR and be involved with aiding the fellowship. The graphics are pretty good for a game that is 5 years old. On ultra high settings the world is amazing to see and possible to run on a mid level graphics card.
Summary: This game is great for people who want to try a new game, MMO fans, if you have friends to play with, and if you just want to play a game you want to stick with. People will enjoy this game if they play RuneScape, World of Warcraft, or pretty much any game that is online and you level up in it.
Summary: I know we've heard it all before, but I was a WoW player for quite some time, just like many of us others that have tried this game. I have followed the LotR trilogy since I was a young child and ever since then, it has stood out to me more then most stories. This game replicates the experience of that feel better then any game. As of right now in 2011, I would have to agree that LotRo is a much better choice then any other MMO out there.
Summary: So basically the game plays just like World of Warcraft, but with a Lord of the Rings outfit. Instead of being based on the movies this game is based more on the books. You meet characters that are only in the books and expierence events you only read about. This games isnt for everyone though. Its not the cartoony game with oversized armor and weapons. The game is an easy transition for anyone who played WoW, and isnt that hard to learn for first time users.
Summary: this game is fun like the first few weeks. then it gets bouring. it takes about 8 hours to download and it is sooo nat worth t. if you want to play a REAL GAME then get world of worcraft or something.
Summary: 2007-2009 this game was a solid 8-9 rating. Great RPG, great story telling, really good Middle Earth lore, frequent updates and expansion. Then they converted the game to a free to play model. Sure they may be making more money but...very little content since Siege of Mirkwood. No expansion for 2 years. Every activity in the game now funnels you in to their micro transaction store.
Summary: This game is insane! From the second i downloaded it i knew it was gonna be good and it has. I currently am on the breandywine server with a 65 and a 51. Without a doubt this game is better than WOW. The graphics are amazing, crisp and clear. Sound is brilliant with an abundant track, it makes u feel like you're actually in the game with the sound. The gameplay is like nothing ive ever seen before, absolutely amazing!
Summary: OK i played this game when it was p2p and played the beta and now i'm playing the f2p version and i is AMAZING! i find it more fun then WoW its has such an amazing environment amazing graphics amazing sound and an amazing community unlike WoW community were most of them are immature, in LOTRO you will find a lot of help full people and make quick in game friends. The best part is that its so easy to understand.
