What Gamespot Users have to say about The Lord of the Rings Online: Mines of Moria

  • User Rating 6.1

    While LOTR: Online offers various nuances to the genre, it also offers various drawbacks.

    Rated on May 02, 2007 by Games_Analyst

    Lord of the Rings is well renowned for it's wonderful story, intriguing characters, and an ability to make the reader or viewer feel truly one with the world they are engaged with. With recent gamers ...

    Very similiar to other mmorpgs out there with a few unique, but ultimately unexciting, features.

    Rated on May 03, 2007 by bronzeman77

    Other reviewers here have mentioned the problems with UI, questing system, lack of class choices etc so I won't go into those. These are problems that can be fixed and improved with patches over time....

    LotRO is the culmination of nearly a decade of MMO development efforts. A new industry standard has been set.

    Rated on May 03, 2007 by ReactiveDrunk

    I have played more than a half-dozen MMO's since 2000. I played some for six months and I played some for two years. I've seen this genre of gaming through it's entire infancy and childhood and now ...

    Never has it been my displeasure to play such a sorry sack of suck.

    Rated on May 03, 2007 by NEEDtheFEED

    *rubs eyes* Okay. This was pathetic. You start the game in a tutorial that is the same despite your class or race, it just takes place in a differant location: A renown character from the books nee...

    MMORPG done right and done better than the others.

    Rated on May 03, 2007 by 69sean

    First I gotta say all games within a genre share things in common. MMORPG's always involve errand quests and killing local wildlife, FPS games are always click-point-shoot, racing games always involv...

    2 year WOW player has never been back

    Rated on May 03, 2007 by dpaul01

    Between the lore, the setting, and the graphics I have left WOW from open beta and could never find my back to wow. After 3 weeks I cancelled my WOW account always thinking I would always go back to w...

    Must play for Tolkien fans. Gameplay breaks no new ground, but is helped by creative use of instancing to advance plot.

    Rated on May 03, 2007 by vanderwielen

    Turbine has done a lovely job of bringing Middle-Earth to life. While clearly not deviating far from the successful model brought forth by WoW, the use of instancing to create the feeling of change i...

    Fun and satisfying, if somewhat uninspired.

    Rated on May 04, 2007 by Vaergoth

    If you've played World of Warcraft, with a few (important) exceptions, you've played Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar. That's not entirely a bad thing. Turbine just decided to copy what has...

    Like WoW but different and sometimes better.

    Rated on May 04, 2007 by red259

    The title says it all. From the start you will see how it is very similar to WoW, which is not necessarily a bad thing. What's the same as WoW? The interface is very similar and many quests can be ...

    Tried and true UI + Great Storyline = Pure Fun

    Rated on May 04, 2007 by madmax161

    UI is very familiar to MMO players, but the story and new tidbits like fellow maneuvers and deeds make this game pure goodness. I absolutely love this game. The graphics are very scaleable. In othe...
