J.R.R. Tolkien would turn in his grave, if he knew how violated his world has become...

I weep....

Why?I think it looks quite good, close to the movies at least.

Anything, Tolkien would be happy that finally a good LOTR game is made within action RPG genre.

I'm with spif2001, this looks dull, both visually and in gameplay terms, a fresh vision not associated with the film versions would be much more interesting.

Violated? I think you should actually research the game more before jumping to such harsh conclusions.

And this is coming from someone who's most likely a much bigger Tolkien fan than you.

You may think so, but I doubt it. I have everything Tolkien and his son has ever published, and I have read The Book of Lost Tales, Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales, The Hobbit and LOTR more times than I care to remember. I read The Hobbit back in '84 and dove directly into LOTR after that. The movies, which are pretty but not especially accurate, I have seen 4 or 5 times in the extended version. They are good in their own way, but they do not catch the feel of Middleearth. No - I don't speak elvish, and think people who does have too much spare time.

I have seen plenty of this game, since I have been keeping an eye on it since it was announced. This game has nothing to do with what Tolkien envisioned. It may be a fun hack'n'slash game - maybe even better than the LOTR games for the old Xbox, and hopefully way better than Conquest. That doesn't mean Tolkien would approve it.

I hope I will be proven wrong, and that this game actually can incorporate a true Middleearth vibe, but I seriously doubt it...
