I really wanted this game to be good but it's not. It really isn't. I'm a HUGE LOTR fanboy and even that couldn't save this game for me. I've never wanted a game to be completely removed from my steam library before this one. For the love of Eru, do not spend money on this dumpster fire of a game.

10/10 It Exists -IGN

Tired of plain old fully functioning sensible MOBAs with strong controls and some form of accessibility?
Tired of boring old precise mouse movements without a hint of unnecessary acceleration?
Are you bored of tooltips with a solid explanation of the skill in question?
Would you rather have cameras that don't pan in a sensible fashion and move when you point your mouse at the minimap?
Do you despise interesting and well-thought-out character and skill design?
Do you really love it when you just paid money for a broken-down version of the Ferrari you could have tried out for free across the street?

If you answered yes to any of the aforementioned questions, then this game is for you!
Features Include:
-Broken Mouse Precision
-Generic, Messily-Constructed Tooltips
-Awkward Camera Movement That Basically Forces You To Lock To Your Character
-Characters Which Come From The Lord of the Rings Lore (well thank goodness)
-Like Most Excellent Established MOBAs, It's FREE! (with the payment of $20 + Additional Cost If You Want To Have The Full Content Without Hours of Playtime)

If you're anything like me, you love the Lord of the Rings Franchise and the mechanics of MOBA gameplay.

And you'll love this ga-

I can't.

I just.

I-

Please kill me.
