LOTRO Beta
« on: 2007-01-26 15:59:32 »

Like I told Don earlier, I received a Beta key for Lord of the Rings Online. I will be trying it out this weekend and will review it around Monday ish, with possible updates during the weekend. Open Beta is in March and Game is set to fly in April. Don't really know if anyone is interested in this MMO but will review it anyway. Shire here I come.

I'd be interested if I didnt have to be a tiny little hobit shit or a fairy boy elf.  I want to be one of those huge guys with the axe that were trying to destroy that stupid castle.

It's true; the game only allows you to be one of the "good" (read: boring) characters. Also means virtually no possibility for PvP.

I think they may make some PVP, if you recall the races didn't get along all to well, so. Besides "The game was designed for Questing not killing other players" South Park.
Also "We cant trust the sword to a noob".

I don't like games that force you to PVP if you don't really feel like it... but I really don't like taking away people's options either.

LOTRO Review:

Laggy. There are cool concepts like quest givers will physically point to which way to go. While traveling down a road I was ambushed by a Spy using a Bow, he was hiding behind a bush actually crouched down behind it. Combat was too laggy so I really cant review it. Classes are pretty much standard just named different you have Buffers, Healers, Damage dealers, Damage takers and De-Buffers. I tried Captain which is a Buffer like character with Shouts and War-cries to buff group members, and they have pretty good damage potential. There is alot more to the game but like I said it was too laggy so I got frustrated and shut it down. I will try the game out more, maybe on off peak hours. I do see alot of potential for the new things they are trying to do and well it is LOTR so the content is there. I have read about alot of the things in the game that seem awesome and fun on paper I just haven't gotten to that point yet. The graphics do seem very very nice, and game play is smooth the 2 seconds you don't lag. It is not cartoon like in anyway like WOW the characters look realistic and weapons look authentic from the wood on the bow to the rust on a noob blade. The environment is very pretty and it does take you in, which gives good promise for finding locations depicted in the trilogy. So I do have faith in this MMO.

Any chance it was lagging due to your video detail settings?  If you're seeing rust and wood and stuff, maybe that level of detail is slowing you down.

No, I tried all video settings, they all lagged equally. My Pc is above the recommended req for the beta and way above the possible retail sys req.

Same thing happened to me on the Vanguard beta. Ran like absolute shit despite having nice hardware and tweaking the graphics.
