Summary: A strong ex pack IMO, the mounted combat its fairly cool once you get used to it and certainly adds something to the game. I still however have some occurring problems for example, i was level 83 when i finished all the quests i had been given in each part of the new zone not 85 which it should of been so quests not matching ur level is here again sadly...
Summary: The new mounted combat is amazing and throw in the usual great landscape and story and ROHAN and this expansion becomes almost unbelievable. That being said, there were bugs and other issues preventing a solid 10.
Summary: I feel morally obligated to write a review of this game in general. I have played this game for a number of years, since new years 2009 on and off for substansial periods. I fully stopped playing some months ago. Firstly, the lore of the game, specifically during the Shadows of Angamr phase and Moria phase I found was good, I cannot comment fully on the Mines of Moria expansion content I feel morally obligated to write a review of this game in general.
Summary: This game has become a bad, cash grabbing joke of something what was a decent implementation of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. I really hope from the bottom of my heart that Warner is loosing the licence 2014 and someone else with taste and knowledge in building working MMOs (Turbines programmers couldn't implement something bug free even if their life would depend on it) could try to make This game has become a bad, cash grabbing joke of something what was a decent...
Summary: Horrible class balance, bad PvP gameplay, Landscape/Questing super boring and easy. Every time they release an expansion it is riddled with bugs. Only good thing that I can think of is the lore and cinematics, most new games comes standard with good graphics, can't vouch LOTRO for that.
Summary: Truly disappointing. Lets start with the positives of Helm's Deep; Western Rohan is a joy to explore, as usual the views are magnificent and the atmosphere of the world is great. However, this is as far as the quality goes. The levelling process is ok, there are quest lines that are interesting and gripping, but the occasional quest that tasks you, the conquerer of evils such as the Truly disappointing.
Summary: I have played LOTRO for over 2 years now and have 4 maxed out character's one of them being a Warden who I play as my main, just after I had sorted my warden out from might to agility after Turbines class changes they yet again nerfed all the toons again changing class skills again and following WOW with trait trees system.
Summary: The expansion looks nice, but is a buggy mess with very little to offer for the money. Stale quests, and 'big battles' is what you get for your money. The big battles are something akin to a browser game dating back 3 years. I wouldn't pay over 5$ for this, and even at that price it would be a tough decision.
Summary: After seeing my friends leave and taking and 18 month break I came back to give Lotro another try. Luckily I had a stack of TP to spend on the expansion. I should have listened to them, Lotro is a lost cause now, the budget has obviously been cut to a minimum and very little of what made the original game so great now remains.
Summary: I give it a 1 for the artwork. Turbine has always done a solid job, at times great, of fleshing out the sights and sounds of Middle Earth. Without that, I'd give it a zero. Bugs are everywhere making multiple parts of the game that were released unplayable. The class changes forced upon their longtime playerbase without concrete input were a misstep. The epic story, once promised to I give it a 1 for the artwork.
