Summary: My main concern about this item was its age. I was concerned that it might no longer be valid. It is very much valid. Just make sure you're getting a New, Unopened copy. This Complete Edition includes Mines of Moria & Shadows of Angmar, opens up Warden and Rune-keeper class adds 4 more character slots and a 30-day membership which opens up all areas for 30-days.
Summary: The Game is actually very good ... I agree with most others about the experience and the game play. The PROBLEM is that this game is ABSOLUTELY WORTHLESS without the game code that is normally included. The normal game itself is FREE to download and play from their Website. The Mines of Moria expansion can be purchased there. There is ABSOLUTELY NO REASON TO PURCHASE THE BOXED GAME unless the redeemable code is included.
Summary: Mines of Moria is a MUST If you plan on reaching a high level in LOTRO, it give you the choice to have 1st age, 2nd age, & 3rd age items which are VERY helpful not to mention they are the BEST of the best. Also when you buy it from a box you get a FREE 30 day VIP automatically along when you're a VIP every month you will receive 500 Turbine Points to help you along you journey.
Summary: This is an awesome story driven MMO and I would recommend it to anyone that wants an MMO that focuses on in depth story line and amazing DX10 graphics. One thing tho if you are really big into PVP I would skip this game. This game is not centered around the PVP aspect at all and world PVP is non-existent.
Summary: The game itself remains a general failure. From the incredibly slow update procedure (does Turbine use snails to power it's servers?) to the "instancing" of small building (yes, you have a screen freeze to just walk into The Prancing Pony Inn)... MoM continues an already weak MMORPG framework. Yes, the terrain is pretty but the expansion doesn't augment this.
