Post Is The Lord of the Rings Online any good?

Basically, it's now free and I'm debating whether to get it. If anyone here plays or played it, is it worth the disc space or shall I not bother?

I haven't played it so I don't know. But you can always try it anyways. Seeing that it is free you really have nothing to lose except time. So I say give it a try.

you're asking advice about something that's free.

It's like wow lite, made by turbine, the geniuses who brought us asheron's call.

If you want a more engrossing game, get dwarf fortress.

It's a 10GB download, which is why I'm asking. I don't want to download it only to find it's crap.

Now now, that's like saying Atlas Shrugged is a more engrossing alternative to Green Eggs and Ham
Why does my life have to be so small
And death is forever
And does forever have a life to call its own?
Don't give me an answer cause you only know
As much as I know
Unless you've been there once
And I hardly think so

Its pretty good, the free areas seem boundless at first but once you get to a high enough level you feel a little 'trapped'. you can go 'vip' for 15 USDs a month giving you full access (you can do just one month at a time), or you can buy points and get whole areas permanently.

Other than that, its a grittier WoW based on middle earth, and I have loads of fun with it.
