I know this is old, but since we have a lot of The Lord of the Rings Online™: Shadows of Angmar™ fans here, I thought I would point out the list:
The Orcs were obviously stolen from PC game maker Blizzard and its Warcraft series. Too bad Blizzard is apparently too scared to sue New Line over it.
There are some spoilers, in case you missed the whole Tolkien thing. Oh wait, you know what other game it rips off?
The character of Elrond was based on Agent Smith from The Matrix.
That’s right, fanboy, your game is a lousy rip-off of The Matrix Online.
