Another game we got to play today, amongst many, was Lord of the Rings Online. I thought it was mildly entertaining but I can’t see myself playing this game as an ongoing thing. It was far too similar to Warcraft for me.
We started from the beginning of the game and it took us through a tutorial type of thing by explaining each button to press and where to go next. I went to Gandolf and clicked on him, since he had an icon dangling over his head (just like WOW), to receive a quest. I proceeded to follow him through a mine to warn the miners and convince them to leave. Once I was done with that, I followed him to a boss to kick some ass. Overall, the graphics didn’t impress me, the quests were a little slow paced, and worst of all, it is way too similar to WOW. Dream bigger Warner Bros Games, dream bigger.
