All multiplayer demos suffer from obsene lag due to early stage net code or simply a lack of initial server resources to run the game on.

Publishers would portray a better initial (and perhaps only) portrayal of their game if they forked out the cashola for sufficient bandwidth.

Ok continuation of review, I started a new character, A Guardian basically a Tank. Uses a Shield and a One handed Weapon. Very nice but not tacky looking attacks. The lag issue seems to be a machine related problem, but seeing as my machine is way past the system recommendations I would have to say its coding, not too bad now though a little better. Got my guy to lvl 7 last night and took some screenshots. Don was on with my on Ts so he saw these and also heard all my REAL TIME /img]

That UI reminds me of something...something unpleasant...something like this perhaps....


Get on the Falcon, kid.   This place blows!
I am not equating the shittiness of NGE with LOTR, but just sayin' it looks familiar.

Uhh... that's because it looks like every MMO that's ever been released, with the possible exception of EVE.

If I was familiar with any of the old text based MMOs (MUDs?)  I'm sure I could make a comparison with those and excitement that is EVE.

LOTR has the same frillyness to its action bar as WOW.

Unsuprising really if you think about it.  How many ways are there to make ~10 numbered squares look different?

make them into circles like CoH?    Anyhow, the UI looks better to me than WoW's or DAoC or any other fantasy/medieval MMO I can think of, even though it reminds of NGE more than anything.

What would be nice to see is how the game looks with the settings up a bit, as it is it doesn't look too modern...to be generous.

Oh yeah... 'cause those circles make COH COMPLETELY different.

DT

I r want to spend money for something new.  What was your final opinion on LotR online?  What I'm reading is that it's polished for a newly released mmo, some find it boring, some love the quests, some say it's too simple, but some say it gets less simple later in the game.  I've read in several places that the quests are much better than simple kill x of y and defeat boss. 

Any thoughts?
