The game will transport you through tons of different places that fans of the Lord of the Rings will quickly recognize. Forests, mountains, valleys, catacombs, dungeons, hills, cities... all kinds of different landscapes await your exploration in this excellent recreation of Middle Earth.
When it comes to customizing your character, you'll have many options: four races (human, elf, dwarf, and hobbit), nine classes, ten professions, seven vocations and more than a thousand titles, abilities, and talents to make your avatar uniquely yours.
As you progress through the game participating in some of the many missions available to you (either alone or with other live players), you'll win experience. This experience will help your character gain levels - up to 75 - to enable you to face more complicated, and fun, challenges.
If all that weren't enough, the game also includes a PvP mode where you can become one of the many monsters of Middle Earth to fight against your friends in awesome battles that will keep you from getting bored for a long time.
The Lord of the Rings Online has decent visuals, something that actually comes in handy because you will be able to enjoy it on practically any modern computer. Although it may not blow you away graphically, it's pretty enough thanks to the majesty of its landscapes.
The Lord of the Rings Online is an excellent MMORPG that will not only thrill fans of the Lord of the Rings but should also draw in anyone who enjoys a good online role-playing game. Fans of World of Warcraft now have a good, and free, alternative to try out.
