RECOMENDADO
y haré un pequeño análisis basado en los 4-5 meses que llevo como jugador.

Si gustas del mundo de la Tierra Media y los MMORPG este juego es para ti.
Por mucho, el videojuego más fiel a la historia original de Tolkien, dicho esto, tiene poca o nula similitud con otros juegos de la saga ( cof cof shadow of mordor...)
Aún si no has leído los libros de ESDLA (El Señor de los Anillos) y te gusta la historia épica te lo recomiendo definitivamente. Está en inglés, pero no considero que necesites dominarlo para entender la historia, que es el punto fuerte de este juego. Además hay comunidades hispanas dispuestas a ayudar y posee una de las comunidades online más amistosas que he visto en un MMORPG, en serio.

NO es un juego "pay to win" puesto que el juego mismo no está enfocado al PvP, si no que es más bien cooperativo, lo cual aumenta la experiencia de juego si vas en comunidad. Jugar solo tampoco es un problema, la mayoría de las quests están optimizadas para jugarlas en solitario, especialmente la línea épica que sigue la historia de El Señor de los Anillos. Todas las clases, razas y profesiones existentes, estan balanceadas para jugar tanto en comunidades como en solitario, comerciar y conseguir tu propio equipo y armas casi de manera autosuficiente sin ser un gasto excesivo.

Que no esté enfocado a PvP no significa que no te dará horas de diversión, existen muchos tipos de raids jugables ya sea en solo o partys contra hordas de orcos, etc, que te dejarán un buen sabor de boca y una especie de pvp donde puedes utilizar un orco o bestia y jugar al lado del señor oscuro, sin contar las innumerables quests, batallas épicas, skirmishes e instances que el juego posee.

puedes explorar todo el juego de manera gratuita (es inmenso) y aunque es necesario comprar los "quest packs" de la mayoría de los mapas al ir avanzando, explorar es libre y es totalmente F2P si así lo deseas, ya que en el transcurso del juego puedes farmear cash points para comprar tus quest packs y obtener prácticamente los mismos beneficios que un suscriptor VIP.
Como dijo alguien en una reseña anterior, existen suficientes misiones y maneras de farmear cash como para comprar todo lo existente en la tienda del juego, por lo cual no tendrás problema alguno, salvo la pereza.

Gráficamente el juego lo soporta cualquier PC de unos 10 años a la actualidad, ya que tiene muchas opciones para optimizar rendimiento, en HD se ve maravilloso.


Como dato extra, A pesar de los 7 años que lleva online el juego, sigue en desarrollo por lo cual le queda mucho tiempo aún para ofrecer cosas nuevas.
Podría hablarte sobre muchas cosas más, pero mejor dale una oportunidad y descubrelo tu mismo

De lo poco que e jugado me gusto bastante, e visto gameplays de World of Warcraft y se me parece bastante en mecanicas, pero este tiene toces de el señor de los anillos logicamente, graficamente no esta nada mal, mi PC no es Gamer ni Gaymer pero configuro un poco los graficos para que mi maquina aguante y ya no tengo frames bajos.
El problema que le veo al juego es que solamente esta en ingles, no trae traduccion al español lo que me fastidia en algunas misiones, por favor si ves este analisis y no sabes hablar ingles (para nada) no jueges, deberias saber mas o menos ingles para jugar.

Como ya escribi largo y tendido sobre este juegazo en su momento en Nosolomods copiare solamente la introduccion y pondre un enlace al articulo que hice sobre el juego.

INTRODUCCIÓN:

Este es el primer especial que hago para el blog y lo haré del MMO The lord of the rings online, a partir de ahora LOTRO para abreviar.

¿Porque? Pues porque me parece el mejor sistema f2p que he probado y no pierde calidad el juego en ningún aspecto por ello. La única lastima es que el juego no esta en castellano pero no sera un problema por lo que ya comentare mas adelante sobre su sistema de seguimiento en misiones.


Todo el mundo conoce o como mínimo a escuchado hablar de El señor de los anillos. Ya sea por los libros o por las películas. Aquí no vamos a hablar del libro ni de las películas salvo alguna mención por detalles concretos que se relacionen con el juego. No intentare crear una polémica de si es mejor el libro, las películas o el juego. Pienso que cada versión tiene sus partes buenas y sus partes malas y no debatiremos eso. Solo queremos que a quien le guste el señor de los anillos ( y a quien busque un buen mmo por supuesto) pueda verse envuelto por la magia que a caracterizado a los libros y las películas de una forma mucho mas interactiva gracias al vídeo juego.

Corría el año 2007 cuando en pleno auge de la trilogia cinematografica de Peter Jackson una desarrolladora de vídeo juegos pensó que seria buena idea sacar al mercado un mmo de el señor de los anillos. Y era un movimiento lógico ya que todos los mmos hasta la fecha queriendo o sin querer empleaban formulas usadas en los libros de esta gran saga. ¿Cuantos jugadores hemos visto en WoW ( world of warcraft) poniendo a sus elfos nocturnos Legolas como nombre?. Esa simple pregunta nos aclara muchas cosas sobre el porque era un movimiento incluso necesario lanzar un juego de El señor de los anillos y que no fuera un simple hack & slash como pasaba hasta la fecha.

Gran MMO, han pasado 7 años desde su lanzamiento y aun es tan o mas entretenido que la primera vez que puse ojos en el.

Pros:

- Gran comunidad, sobre todo en servidores RP (Role Play) donde se organizan eventos y los jugadores ayudan via chat global a la gente que comienza.

- Enorme cantidad de contenido que puede desbloquearse TOTALMENTE GRATUITO sin tener que pagar, solo con las monedas de Turbine.

- Gran variedad de clases y habilidades, personalizables a gusto del jugador.

Contras:

- Graficamente esta algo obsoleto

Muy entretenido sobre todo si juegas con amigos. Me ha encantado y seguiré jugandolo por mucho tiempo pues soy un gran fan de la saga se el señor de los anillos la única pega que le pongo es que no esta en español.
Pero aun así si controlas algo de inglés se entiende a la perfección. Sinceramente es el mejor MMO que he jugado, y he probado unos cuantos!!! Pero no están a la altura. Y lo mejor es que es gratis.

From a player that's played this game since release back in 2007, playing across 3 servers, founder account, over 15,000 hours logged over the years. I can tell you that my feelings for this game are very genuine and it's taken me a good two months to write this review after leaving the game.

I'll be honest, the game truly has fallen from what it used to be, it's become, let's say, easy from what I remember years ago. Angmar content is probably on par with what vanilla WoW was for me, The massive amount of meticulousness that had to go into every single character that you had. From the start of character creation, you were in danger of getting absolutely smacked by landscape mobs if you were a certain class and pulled mobs badly (I'm looking at you hunter). The way you had to play a class was very different from launch than it is now, and I'm not saying that's a bad thing at all, things change, just me reminiscing over times long past. This is just the tip of the iceberg so to say.

Now, on to the content. The developing team behind LOTRO has put out content consistently that appealed to the audiences up to Rise of Isengard, which in my opinion, was one of the best expansions I've ever played in any MMO. The content before and including Isengard (Angmar, Mines of Moria, Seige of Mirkwood) are incredible, everything from the instances, zones, questing, down to the ambient sounds, it was amazing. Now this basically talking about the expansions as a whole, (I consider Angmar an expansion in this list, but it was vanilla content more or less) but the zones in between the major content areas were amazing as well, North Downs, Lothlorien, Evendim, Enedwraith, If you have never experienced the night in Forochel, you are missing on one of the most amazing game sceneries ever. Great instance designs in all of this content, from forging into Carn Dum with your friends and overcoming the managerie of bosses and Mordirith, to conquering places like Barad Guldur and the Tower of Isen along with toppling Saruman in an incredible battle atop the tower itself. Many many memories will never be forgotten that pertain to such events that took place in the game.

Alas, many new players will never get to experience this content simply because the game has progressed far beyond all of this. Most of the players that I met during my final year and a half or so were players that were there to rush to level cap and do "end-game", that's the joke kids, there is no end-game. All it is at level cap is a daily grind for your daily reputation factions for that "highest tier raiding set" that you will never put to serious use because most of the players that play the game now will NOT run content that will challenge them. It's that simple, I led pug tier 2 challenge runs on my main server of Windfola for years for players not in raiding guilds, and people would rather run Sambrog 6 man spams for crap rewards than spending a little more time in a bigger, more challenging instance for big reward. It pained me to see that the game populace had declined to such a lazy group of "give it to me without the challenge" group of people, because let's be honest, anyone that played in vanilla LOTRO can tell you how bloody hard it was, JUST to get your resistances right to actually stand a chance in Carn Dum, let alone actually fighting the bosses. But don't be let down, there are groups of players on many servers on both EU and NA that play around the level of that old content when it was released so they can specifically run that content and have it challenge them, they are great people and they organize themselves in server world chats and forums still.


Now on to the "current" content. After Isengard, the game started to decline, Rohan was a let down for most players, the introduction of mounted combat looked fun on paper, it was ok, but it was buggy, and it never really fit in with most players. The landscape was pretty for a bit, but you got used to the rolling plains. The instances were sadly a joke in terms of difficulty, aside from the raids in that cluster for the expansion, the three raids that were introduced were pretty fun and challenging at the highest difficulty of tier 2 challenge, Fires of Smaug and Battle for Erebor were great fun, but the third, Flight to the Lonely Mountain was pretty much impossible at release because it was buggy, it got fixed, but far to late for such a simple problem. Then you had the the most outrageous rep grind in the form of Hytbold reconstruction, something that would take around a solid month to complete if you were very diligent about your dailies, something that had to be done to aquire your level 85 class set pieces. It wasn't the worst thing ever, but the real knife in the back really came with the area expansion of Wildemore with the atrocious rep grind at the end of finishing every quest in the zone, it was terrible, an everyone that I knew hated it, and it was all for a shiny epic accessory piece that didn't mean a whole lot.

After this Helms Deep released, Big Battles came with it, I won't go into detail about it, but it was something to see, especially as a player from the beginning. All the classes were redone, traits were completely overhauled into tree progression, basically the game was stripped and redone in most aspects. No new instances were included, no raids, nothing except the battles that most hated, I did my progression through them, did A LOT of bug report testing for them over the months, some say to this day that they are still buggy. When they released update 14 I called it quits, said my goodbyes to many, and uninstalled.

As for players that really enjoy playing PvP, I STRONGLY recommend you watch videos and visit the official LOTRO forums and read through the PvMP threads. Personally, I think the community for PvP is toxic and players are simply looking for who has the bigger E-Peen at any given time. On any server you will find flavor of the month players that jump from class to class every update so they can destroy you with minimal effort, it's just terrible habits that a fair amount of them have and it's nasty, one of the main reasons that led to me leaving the game, considering there really is no PvE endgame anymore.

Now, don't get me wrong I will recommend this game to anyone that every asks me about it, it's very good looking, classes play pretty well, questing isn't a total bore, crafting can be ok, there is amazing RP opportunity. Just remember that this game has been around for a good while and is going through it's decline because of recent content release, but there are still servers with 200+ player login, people still play this game, I leave it up to you to decide whether to drop subscription money to do a large amount of things that this game has to offer in terms of content. I've made many dear friends because of this game, maybe you will as well.

As for the players that have never progressed anywhere near the end of a character's leveling path and experienced a large amount of this game, they truly have no opinion of the game. They haven't gone through anything that would give them any right to judge the game in any way shape or form, it hurts greatly when I read a review from someone that hasn't even logged an hour and down votes this game.

I would have recommended this game a year or two ago. But they keep adding stupid ways to get people to pay and complicate the game. They keep adding several new things to character development and makes it so complicated i wouldn't even bother with learning it just so they can get you to spend more cash to unlock upgrades in them. They break promises about the main questline remaining F2P. Quality of quests are also dropping.

In short: AVOID, this game was good but now it's just becoming a pay to win fest.

As a fan of the LOTR series, this game is pretty damn good for those who are heavilyyyyyyy invested in the series. Those who read the books will not be disappointed. Those who watched the movies? You'll probably be confused but eventually you'll get along just fine with the story.

The story is amazing for this game. The storytelling, your character's involvement, it's all amazing.

From an f2p standpoint, this game is definitely friendlier than other MMORPGs that offer f2p. (SWTOR and WoW, I point my finger at you. They're both really great games, but f2ps get rather shafted by the services that are provided.)

At the same time, however, there are 100 levels to grind through, and if you're f2p, you're REALLY screwed. Yes, everyone can get to 100, but f2ps will have a hard time come around the level 20-25 area when sidequests become unavailable, as they require a pack. What does that mean? That means that for every region of the game past level 20-25 will only have the storyquestline, nothing more. And the story quest line, just like all other MMORPG's, only give you so much XP.

So where does that leave you? That leaves you to purchase either a region for it's quest (Worth or not worth depending on which quest pack you buy) or to buy a bunch of XP boosts (Somewhat worth, but that's a lot of dough...)

That being said, I'm an RPer. I like to RP. This game has a pretty damn good RP community. If you're an RPer and a fan of the LOTR series, you won't be disappointed as long as you join an RP server.

Most people say this game is "Pay-To-Win", but it really isn't. Competitive play in this game is rather limited, which Turbine has decided to implement PvMP to try and compensate for this loss, or "Player vs Monster Player", WHICH you can only get to at a really high level (75, I believe).

Time is a huge factor in this game. You really need to grind skirmishes (equivalent of raids or dungeons) in order to level up if you're f2p.

So overall, I wouldn't recommend the game to non-RPers. It just doesn't really seem worth it to me. However, if you ARE an RPer, then I would definitely recommend it.

A well-balanced mmorpg based on the works of Tolkien. You'll recognise many places and people from the novels (or movies).
Until recently I played, very happily, as F2P. There are several regions which have their quests unlocked and other quest packs and services can be unlocked using Turbine Points which can be easily gained ingame by completing deeds.
A lot of people pay for 1 months VIP subscription for the permanent unlocks it gives, but I love the game so much I decided to go VIP to put some money back into a game that satisfies all my mmo needs. Awesome cosmetic/wardrobe options, great crafting system, beautiful places to explore and I love achievements & titles!
I haven't covered the raiding/endgame or PVM (player vs monster) as I haven't been involved with those. But the PVM, where you can create a monster race player & fight other players in the Ettenmoors sounds like a lot of fun.

CONS
-COMBAT SYSTEM!
-Ask for real money too much.

I will start off with a few good points as to why i would recommend this game (Only slightly) to people who enjoy mmos with a already created universe. The game does a pretty good job at recreating the lotr universe of Middle-Earth or at least it did at one point. For you see it would seem the worlds are almost empty, If you are thinking of just playing cusually then get ready to grind like hell to get the turpine points to buy most of the items you need in-game. For example you need turpine points to buy the riding skill early game and alot of the other good cosmetic items, but dont get me wrong i like how you can actually get the coins with out having to pay real money it will just take a long time to get them. With the Semi pay-to-win out of the way there is the problem of the servers drying up, beacuse if you are wanting to get into this game now unless you are starting with someone get ready to walk the halls alone. There are a good amount of pros and cons to cover aslso

-Pros
-well crafted maps
-decent gaming community
-not entirely pay-to-win
-story with an interesting twist
-crafting is rather good

-Cons
-close to empty servers
-lots of grinding for "turbine points"
-some glitches (though what games don't)
-armour doesn't have the greatest apeal in the looks

The lists can go on for both but that is always up to the indivual person, because i have found you can't always go off of reviews you have to figure out if you like the game yourself. That being said i wrote this just to educate the people who might want to start playing this game and hopefully turbine might see this and lay off the pay-to-win a little but. So all in all it is rather fun, i guess i might have something to do with my love for Lotr.

LotRO is a free-to-play (f2p) game that is set in the world of Middle-earth which was created by the Father of Modern Fantasy himself, J.R.R Tolkien. LotRO (Lord of the Rings Online) is as it's name suggests - it is based around the time of the Lord of the Rings and features a lot of the War of the Ring. First of all, let me talk about races and classes. There are four races which are Elves, Dwarves, Hobbits and the Race of Men which you get to decide on when your making your own character. Then there are the nine classes: Burglar, Captain, Champion, Hunter, Guardian, Lore-master, Minstrel, Rune-keeper and Warden (the last two you need to pay with turbine points or get via Mines of Moria expansion though). The game throws you into the tutorial (not litterally :P) and into it's main storyline.

Depending on what race you choose you are in the tutorial (Dwarves and Elves go to Thorin's Halls, Men and Hobbits go to Archet). And once you complete the tutorial, it is pretty much a free world for you. You can craft on LotRO (litterally some players - all they ever do is craft), you can quest and level or do the epic quests (there's other stuff too but they are the main stuff). Throughout LotRO, you become a hero-of-sorts. You are in the background of the main events and have your own story to tell and act out as you fight the evils of the Witch King, Saruman and Sauron. Overall, I really recommend the game to all Middle-earth fans or a fan of MMOs. Of course, the game does have some problems such as PvMP. Give the game a try but I do have to note that you do need a bit of patience as at the start it (may) seem a little boring but becomes more fun and interesting after about the first 20 levels (isn't that much and hard to get too). So, yeah I give the gaves a thumbs up and 4 out of 5 stars.

I’m playing with an increasingly miserable lvl 58 elf huntress.
She wants to see all of Middle Earth, but she won’t. Because I am broke.

I feel like writing this review in caps lock and yelling at the top of my lungs “pay to win pay to win pay to win”.
To think I used to have so much fun playing this game.

Middle Earth is beautiful. Beginnings are sweet as you’re not engaged in battles straight away. You start in Eriador, and exact place depends on which race you chose to play with. Crafting is soothing, exploring is fun, everything looks amazing. When you get a horse, things get a lot easier and you find yourself immersed into the world and enjoying it so much. It leaves you curious for other parts of Middle Earth and you want to level up to enjoy them all. Music is great too and fits every scenery beautifully.

But then, around levels 20-30 you realize you need to purchase a quest pack to play the next area on the map. So you do that, still being into the game. Then you grind grind grind, until you face the same thing again. So you buy another area. And so on. Thing is, I didn’t even mind purchasing packs to see more. What I really did mind though, is how boring and repetitive quests became while levelling in parallel became increasingly harder and frustrating. I'm starting to think the best way to play this game is getting a horse and just riding like there's no tomorrow until you reach Mordor. Noro lim Asfaloth, noro liiiiiim!

Unless on top of all those purchases you want to buy experience tomes. Thanks Turbine, but no thanks.

Community used to be better too, but I’m guessing a lot of people left for which I can’t really blame them.

Also in walks my biggest regret, and that’s starting my toon on a non RP server which is extremely boring and has very little activity. However, if you do the same mistake and want to try other server with the same toon, Turbine offers you to transfer it for 20 €. What a surprise, I think I'll get a heart attack.

Still, there were times when I was so desperate I was willing to put all that aside and give it another shot. Then server started crashing. Guess it’s not meant to be, Lotro.

Sometimes the best thing in the world is a quiet walk from Michel Delving to Bywater. Absolutely worth it just for that.

As a veteran of MMOs (and MUDs before that) I would have to recommend this game for several reason.

-F2P: Its actually free to play. The RMT (real money trade) store items are mostly cosmetic. There are some that effect gameplay convenience wise. However, the RMT currency (Turbine Points) can be also earned in game in many different ways. Basically, the game gives you RMT currency as a side result of playing.

-The Community. The community is not the typical MMO trollfest. MOST players you come across are more than willing to lend a hand, give advice or even (sometimes) free items etc. They are very friendly and generally tend to help the new players out.

-Social MMO. Despite this game having boatloads of grindy combat like any other MMO, there are many unique social aspects to this game. Making/playing your own musical instruments in a band, player/guild housing etc.

-Massive world. The gameworld in this is rather big. While certain areas are locked out until you purchase the expansion, there are equivalent zones for the free (budget) player.

-Customer Support is very ... human. And tends to be helpful with the player rather than absolute sticklers to policy.

-Mounted Combat/Legendary Weapons/Raids/Dungeons/Crafting/Typical MMO stuff etc., etc.,

CONS:

-I had performance issues on my budget laptop. The game can get very laggy with xpacs and infusion of players.

-WoW ruined any mmo without flying mounts ><

TL:DR give it a spin if you like mmos. While it doesn't break any new ground in the genre it is a solid game with unique social aspects.
