Lord of the Rings : Online

From the very start this game held my attention. The moment I started playing I was quite in awe by the way it seemed to make you feel like you were actually being part of the story, something most MMO's fail at entirely. That soon ended, becoming more of a normal MMORPG, however the game is still worth a peak. With excellent graphics, and a control scheme very similiar to World of Warcraft, and the very story and geography ripped straight out of such a rich world, Lord of the Rings Online is a fantastic way to kill the hours.

The Good

  • The game content is from a very well known source.

  • The combat is fun and exciting.

  • The graphics are fantastic.

The Bad

  • It's really just World of Warcraft with different graphics..

  • After the first 15 minutes, it quickly became just another MMO

  • I didn't find the PvP content as fun as WoW's

Overall, I would rate this game a 8.5/10. It's a great game, but it*and many others* are just WoW clones with different source material. There is a free trial however, so check it out. And be sure to check out the elite link for LOTOR!
