It says PS3 and 360 at the end, so I'd say it is. Ugh, it looks bad.
Posted by Tarsier

jeez.. makes me sad that no one has made a good lotr game yet... and theyre strill trying.. 
but not really, all it is is a cash grab for these people. they dont give a fuck about making a good game.

I want this to be good so bad. What is snowblinds pedigree like?
Posted by FritzDude

Looks promising. On my radar, but we'll see how it turns out.

I dont know about that - I thought Battle for middle earth II was rather good.

Could be good...I'll keep an eye on it.

Yeah it's for PC as well. 
 
Made by Snowblind that also made the excellent Dark Alliance and Champions of Norrath games. Hopefully this will be on par with those games.

I like Lord of the Rings a lot. This is frustrating to no end. There is so much untouched lore that has nothing to do with the main storyline that it hurts to think about it. I wish they'd do something new. I wish they'd stop deriving the visual style from the movies too. Middle Earth is allowed to be colourful. This game looks incredibly bland. Even the sound effects are rehashed.

Why after I read that title did I wonder if Nolan North was going to be in the game.

Posted by DEllen

Hmm reminds me a bit of Dragon Age. This could be good.

Posted by Ventilaator

From Snowblind, so I'm so very very interested.

Posted by jkz

A game developed by Snowblind is immediately plopped square onto my radar.

Posted by dragonzord

So when they were showing this off before it seemed like there was just 3 'slots' Gauntlet style. Elven Ranger, Dwarf Warrior, and Human Mage. I guess this proves they're letting you change it up?

A Lord of the Rings game reminds you of Dragon Age? I wonder why that is...
Posted by Reizarvg

Oh look, a warrior, a mage and a ranger. I'm fucking blown away.

Dragon Age of the Ring? crossing my fingers hoping its better than than "Lord of the rings the third age" and i actualy finished that boring EA piece of crapola :(

Posted by weegieanawrench

This does not look too good. Also, what's up with the graphics? They're pretty flat for a game that's not coming out until next year. Then again, it is early. Maybe the graphics won't be flat when it's released.

@Gill: Truth is, the movies did no good to the Middle-Earth lore. They just helped create a certain stereotype by which all things Middle-earth will be measured, and on which they will all be based. It's sad, actually, with all the potential in Tolkien's creation, that it has to be limited by someone's limited interpretation of it.

Awesome, can't wait to see in-game footage. Not familiar with this studio but it appears that they made Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance which has pretty good reviews. Doesn't look totally amazing but I'm definitely interested.

Posted by Death_Unicorn
@Tarsier: Hey! I'd call Battle for Middle Earth an extremely competent game. I'd argue that the series got worse with each iteration, but I still hold the first with high regard.
Posted by Tordah

Why am I looking forward to this when I know it will unevitably end up a huge disappointment? I guess it must be the LOTR fanboy inside me screaming for a good game that lives up to the books and movies.

Posted by Red

Those LotR movie games were actually pretty decent. 
This game looks a lot like Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance, so I have high expectations. 
 
 
(After googling Snowblind Studios) 
And hell, it turns out it was made by the exact same people who made BG: DA...so...looks good.

Posted by StealthRaptor

Man, FUCK Agandar!

Posted by Einherjan

Looks a lot like the graphics engine used in LoTRO, but worse.

Posted by MeatSim

How about a diplomatic solution in the north instead of a war?

Posted by Frostler

I really want this to be great so they'll make more lotr games. Don't let us down Snowblind

Posted by Squagmire
@Meatsim:   Bore in the North?
Posted by Kierkegaard

If this has a strong story, I'm all for it. For some reason I have hope that Snowblind will show deference to the lore. Honestly, any chance to be in Middle Earth makes me excited. I still love those hack n' slash Two Towers and Return of the King games. 

Posted by Glak

I'm going to be optimistic about this, because I love Lord of the Rings 
Right now it looks ok, but they have a pretty good premise and if they can incorporate a lot of lore into this I will be a happy man

Posted by Hitchenson

People seem to be writing this off? They've made some quality Action RPGs before.

Posted by lilburtonboy7489

I really hope this is good. Snowblind is an excellent studio. 

Posted by Jolt92

I want it to be good but it won't.

Posted by RiotBananas

War in the North? Really? 
 
Aww please. Let me reintroduce you two.

Posted by Luck3ySe7en

Damn, im a sucker for fantasy RPGs.

Posted by jakob187

As a diehard Champions of Norrath, Justice League Heroes, and Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance fan, I cannot fucking wait for some more Snowblind awesomeness!!!

I enjoyed the RTS game they made years back, it wasn't ground breaking or anything, but i had fun with it on the PC.

Hmmm...trying to tell if you're joking or not...
Posted by getan

I'll try to keep an open mind with this.

Posted by TorMasturba

The first co-op game I played was by Snowblind, Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance, And I have high hopes based on those fond memories that Snowblind will create something awesome with this title.  
My only critiscism at the moment is that the graphics could do with a lot of improvement. 
 
Maybe this makes me a graphics snob but whatever...

Go north, face Haagen Daas. Got it.

You must take the Rocky Road where you will face the Chunky Monkey
Posted by dyong

Why do we have to go north again? Can't we have war in the south where there's sand and margaritas?

You will be escorting these two Hobbits: Ben & Jerry.

Posted by benjaebe

The Two Towers and Return of the King games were fun. They should make another one of those, because everything since has been pretty bad.
