It worked after 5 years on the shelf at the store!

Summary: I canceled my credit card, so I needed some way to pay for my lotro vip subscription. I went to my local gamestop, where the clerk had to go into the back and find one of these game cards. He said they've been on the shelf since 2007. It even said Shadow of Angmar on it! I used cash to buy it, and it worked fine even after 5 years! I was psyched.
Summary: I've been playing this game for 5 years...since it came out. I plan to continue doing so until lotro 2 comes out :) If you are considering buying this game, do it, and meet me, Apollo, in crickhollow.
Summary: The Lord of the Rings Online: Mines of Moria (Collector's Edition) is still worth purchasing for two reasons... First, all the goodies in the box are nice additions to any Lord of the Rings fan. The box includes a replica of "The One Ring" on a gold chain. There are definitely better quality replicas out there, but for the price you can't beat it. There's also a cloth map that's a nice piece of swag.
Summary: Give yourself a chance to really appreciate this game. The game has such an amazing story arc to it as you quest along side the Tolkien story. It is, in my opinion, the most complete MMO experience to date; PvP notwithstanding. The different starting zones are very VERY well crafted and Turbine was not afraid to actually go in and tweak them to make them even more enjoyable. Craft early, make time to create your own experience and make it to level 20.
Summary: After winning both Best Overall Game and Best Overall expansion in 2008 by reader's choice, AND taking home the favorite MMO studio award, one would certainly think there must be something to this game. Favoring content over style (but not neglecting style, mind you), Lord of the Rings Online (Lotro as it called), is far ahead of the cusp of most MMO games. Choose to play a dward, a human, a hobbit, an elf, and then choose from one of 9 playable classes.
Summary: For those of you who enjoyed the hit game world of warcraft this will be a very easy transition. Lord of the Rings Online (LOTRO) uses the basic interface that World of Warcaft (WoW) uses with a few twists. I will list several pro's and con's. THE GOOD: 1. Leveling is not annoying 2. Graphics are beautiful 3. Gathering money is simple and the overall Economy of the game is advantageous to the user. 4. Classes are balanced and each has its obvious pro's and con's 5.
