Lord of the Rings Online Review
Lord of the Rings Online is a free MMORPG based on the popular book and movie series. Middle Earth seems to be in permanent danger and many adventurers as you try to clean the lands from the evil forces.
Four races (Man, Dwarf, Elf and Hobbit) are available in the game, along with 9 different classes; Burglar, Captain, Champion, Guardian, Hunter, Lore-Master, Minstrel, Rune-Keeper and Warden. As soon as you create your character, you enter a race-based introduction in which events from the books actually take place. You will eventually get to the starting town for all players, ready to begin your journey.
Quests are either story-based or irrelevant of the main storyline. Prepare yourself since there are lots of them! To proceed with your adventures you will have to accept quests from well-known characters as Strider and Gandalf while running all kinds of errands for other NPCs. Levelling up will unlock skills for your character and the ability to use advanced weapons and armour.
While playing the game you will face numerous types of enemies scattered around the lands or grouped in their territory. PvP is an option, but you will never face player opponents as there are no factions. Fights are based on a series of skills your hero possesses and can be either ranged or melee.
Lord of the Rings Online delivers hundreds of adventure hours for free, in a beautyful 3d world, as if the books came to life. Join in the action alone or with friends and become the hero that will save Middle Earth from evil.
