The Lord of the Rings Online

A dwarven minstrel breathing out a smoking dragon

Developer: Turbine Inc.
Release Date: April 24, 2007
Genre: F2P, MMO, RPG

One Sentence Review:
An MMO that lives on Lord of the Rings and very little else.

It's hard to explain to someone who hasn't touched base with the depths of J.R.R Tolkien's lore and come out craving the entire story. How can I explain why I thought this MMO would be different from all the others? How can I describe what came over me when I saw the list of potential character races and classes? I was offered the ability to play as a Dwarven Minstrel. Yeah that pretty much covers it.
