Lord of the Rings Online


"There is something magical about running around The Shire as a Hobbit, escaping the your nosy neighbors as you deliver postage. Watching the sun set in the Elvish glade overlooking Woodhall only to see the Swordsman of the Sky, Menelvagor, appear bright over the edge of the world, his “belt shining bright” as Tolkien wrote in The Fellowship of the Ring, is an awesome experience as someone who loves those little details. Indeed, that’s one of the major reasons to still explore LOTRO’s vision of Middle-earth - while the engine might be dated and the gameplay lacking compared to MMOs such as Final Fantasy XIV: Stormbringers or The Elder Scrolls Online, there is something still magical exploring all the nooks and crannies of Tolkien’s world. ... LOTRO is by far the most realized version of Middle-earth in gaming - and well worth your time to explore" - Joseph Bradford,
