LOTRO looks absolutely, astoundingly right. Characters look correct, the world is beautifully crafted and enemies match the best drawings that the Tolkien Legendarium has attracted in sixty years. The Shire looks as good as the movies, Bree (though bigger than we expected) is gloriously rickety, like an old medieval English town, and the build of the Elven and Dwarven towns nail ethereal and indomitable respectively.
My re-review of LOTRO is up, at last. If you’ve never been arsed enough to read any of my writing and you count yourself a friend, would you kindly have a gander? It’s not brilliant, but it’s surely solid.
