    Lets just say that with this expansion, things have well, expanded!

    Lets just say that with this expansion, things have well, expanded! So where to start? Skirmishes: Instances that are started anywhere in the game world, via a new button on the UI. They are rep...

    Good: Fun, fast spawns create much chaos, very little lag even though servers are crowded<br /> Bad: minor bugs

    So far I love everything that I've seen (granted, I've only done a couple of Skirmishes, and am still doing the intro quests to Mirkwood). The scenery is gorgeous (granted, a bit dark, especially whe...

    A generally fun and worthy addition to LOTRO but is somewhat hampered by an uneven launch.

    Rated on December 03, 2009 by FleshTone

    All in all, Siege of Mirkwood is a fun and much needed addition to LOTRO. As an avid LOTRO player, the decline in player population across all servers has been very noticeable and disconcerting. Min...

    This game can be what ever you want it to be.

    Very fun.

    Rated on February 12, 2011 by contraigon

    This is by far the best MMO I've ever played. I don't know why, but it's somehow WAY more fun than other free MMOs. My pros: Each class has a huge set of attacks. Great multiplayer options. Being able...

    Lord of the Rings Online's excellent story and great graphics are drowned out by boring and repetitive quests and combat

    Rated on February 13, 2011 by SickDip55

    Let's face it: We have all heard the words "Lord of the Rings" at least once in our lifetime. The massive, age old franchise sports tons of books, movies, and, of course, video games, for your liking....
