My wife and I are really, really enjoying this game. However, I have reached that point in every steamy new MMO relationship, where I start to Google information, re-read old reviews, and generally preview whats in store for us around the next level or the next 10-20 levels.
What I’ve read, scares me a little…
I had planned to write a review after a few weeks and a few dozen levels were behind me, but now I hesitate after reading through the reviews and post-cancellation re-reviews of many trusted and well respected bloggers. I feel as though the trend or pattern, if you will, is an inspired love of the game, its scenery, questing, mechanics and pace through the middle levels, when at some point, the experience turns sour.
I’m still loving every minute I spend in Middle-Earth, but I’ve decided to wait on the final judgement, until we pass this patch of leveling that seems to have disenfranchised many of my fellow bloggers.
On a completely awesome note, I give you, The Brasse! This is comedic genius, and the commentary is top notch. A permanent link was provided by Ethic in the Funnies section to the right, and if you are an MMO gamer and haven’t read her work yet, click it now! I have also found myself using their site for my LoTRO map and questing needs as well. Kudos to the staff of The Brasse, and keep up the great work!
