The Lord of the Rings Online: Mines of Moria
6 October 2011
Conclusion: All in all, a decent expansion for a decent MMO. There's content here that could give even the World of Warcraft expansions a run for their money, and plenty to do within the Mines themselves. Two new classes also make starting from scratch worthwhile, and it will be interesting to see where the development team goes from here.
The Lord of the Rings Online: Mines of Moria Review
25 June 2009
Excerpt: Remember that scene in the first Lord of the Rings film, where the Fellowship went into that massive mountain, beat up a Cave Troll and Sir Ian McKellen yelled: "You shall not pass!!!!!", before being dragged down into the abyss with the fiery demon Balrog? Of course you do, it was the best bit. Well, now players of The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar, the brilliant MMORPG based on J. R. R.
Excerpt: For anyone already enjoying Shadows of Angmar, Mines of Moria is a near-essential purchase. Not only in regard to progressing through the Lord of the Rings storyline, but in offering a fresh style of play through the new classes and presenting a lengthy boost to the game’s lifespan.
Excerpt: So I have been playing Lord of the Rings online for about a year now, and even though I love the world, based on the books of J.R.R. Tolkien and to some extent the movies too (though technically its only supposed to be based on the books), I was starting to get a little bit bored. Having maxed out my level at 50 and maxed out my arms making crafting at Grandmaster, there was not a lot for me to do other than try to put together some new outfits.
Excerpt: I calmly peer through the scope of my M24 sniper rifle, secretly observing the enemy team’s movements at their home base. I’ve been an insidious thorn in their side the entire afternoon, picking off soldiers from within the trees. And for the time being, I am still invisible. As my squadmates begins to assault the enemy from the beaches, they become frantic and displaced, unsure of which M-Com station we will destroy next.
