I'm not happy that he has magic powers. I know Lord of the Rings wasn't totally void of magic but they were left for traditional mages and the undead only.

This feels too generic. Not conforming with the lore of The Lord of the Rings enough.

Not to mention this is supposed to be a prequel? And from the looks of the trailer he is going to take on the hordes of Mordor pretty much all by himself. The same job that Aragorn and pretty much every human fighter still alive after the previous battles almost died doing at the end of The Lord of the Rings? Sounds very......not at all reasonable.

IT'S A TRAP! not fair, they already know the default skin is crap! the one that comes with the pre-order its so much cooler! that should be the default -.-

The story has potential. I like the soundtrack too. Apart from that, can't really comment on the gameplay as of yet.

Another Destruction and a big disaster of Lotr title... after the Great Last games of EA like Lotr Bfme title, Middle-Earth has Died with WB-Turbine-Monolith-Pandemic studios... They DESTROYED THE VERY GREAT TITLE OF LOTR AND M-E Lore alongside with the great bullshits Guardians of Middle Earth - War in the North. These gaming development studios just they can't make a clear great open middle earth world game... and they are crafting their own story destroying the lore of M-E.... WTF IS THIS WRAITH-POWER-RANGER OF THE NORTH ARCANE HOLY -ALTAIR - GOD-OF-WAR- ASSASSIN OF MONOLITH CREATION ??!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I can't remember this hero in tolkien's lore books sorry monolith studios.. you always destroying Tolkien's lore with your big ridiculous fantasy ideas copy-paste from great titles like GoW-Dota and other video games and mixing it up with ur bullshit fantasy... YOU ARE A DISAPPOINTMENT TO THE VIDEO GAMING SCENE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A very movie-like trailer, but I think it looks interesting.

How the (blip) is this a middle-earth story? This looks like some Hollywood garbage movie.  The only thing that comes to mind is the story of Beren, but he actually fought against Sauron, if I remember correctly.

No facial expressions what so ever. Graphics seem at par with the PS2.

My god, what a generic story setup.
Big white guys wife dies. So he vows revenge and then proceeds to kill as many things as possible.

Is this really the best you could do?
No wonder you stole code off of Assassin's Creed......

It doesn't feel very LOTR-ish to me. It's still early to know though so I hope I'll be proven wrong.

I stopped watching after I heard that god-awful Hans Zimmer "BRAAAAM" thirty seconds in. Its infested every AAA game and movie trailer for the last four years, and I can't take it anymore.

@k41m Wait-wait, first you tell it will suck because of bad graphics, then realize it is made by Monolith, now it's okay? Okay-okay I understand graohics doesn't matter if the game is good, but you have just judged the game by it's cover.

The only criticism I have at the moment is they maybe should change the cover, looks too much like Dark Souls

@anshanlord aw, I love a non-emotional, fact based assessment of a game know one has much info one yet.

@anshanlord The art style is gritty and dark, you can say "shitty" as it is a very f*cked up case when you come back from the dead to take revenge.

@anshanlord it's not bad graphics, it's in game graphics. Finally an honest game that doesn't throw CGI awesomeness to make us love the game.

@ahpuck this is as close to a LOTR story as the 2nd hobbit movie. Theres some familiar names and faces and thats about it.
