Lord of the Rings Online: Riders of Rohan Review

 

Our verdict on Turbine's unique expansion of its ever-evolving world based on Tolkien's epic fantasy.

I played LOTRO at launch and for a few months after. I was… underwhelmed. Perhaps it was unfair to judge such a massive game on its early state. Since last week, the game has gone free to play. So this seemed like a perfect opportunity to check it out...

Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows Of Angmar

 

The Lord of the Rings Online is a fun and accessible online role-playing game that does just enough to distinguish itself from its high-profile competition.

Quest-oriented gameplay is enjoyable and accessible ; Monster play is a unique take on the player-versus-player formula ; Story-based quests are rewarding and immersive ; Pretty graphics and superb sound really flesh out middle-earth

I've been Warcrafting for a long time now and decided to give this a try. The interface is almost identical but that's not surprising, as it seems to be the standard for the genre. I found the directions given in some of the Quests to be hard to...
