Ive rarely bin less interested in a game after seeing a trailer. Bleak is all i can use to describe what i saw.

Posted by Typhus733

This really looks like a bad cash in on the current Dota/MOBA craze.

Posted by spiceninja

Tolkien is spinning in his grave right now.

This made me facepalm almost as hard as that first CG trailer. They could not miss the mark more if they were Michael Bay making a film about Pearl Harbour.

Doesn't look like a good GoME. Right, guys? Ok, ok, I'm leaving...

I was going to put some money aside for this, but Kid Rock's 4th Annual Chillin' the Most Cruise goes on pre-sale tomorrow!

Replace characters and plot, add in same generic abilities. Nobody would even be looking at this... "Galdalf is wise enough to wear an Elvin ring." WHAT!? Does he bring some with him because "they''re good at clearing out dungeons" too?

Posted by theimmortalbum

So bad. What's with the voice over? That's almost worse.

Posted by Deusx

Sure is a great idea to have a MOBA on a console OH BOY.

Dear Monolith,

Instead of making this random Lord of the Rings game you should be doing something like Condemned 3.

I'm pretty sure they're just referencing Narya.

I am not interested.... I love LOTR, and I enjoy games like LoL, but... no.

Gandalf is a tanking guardian with AOE damage. Just like Tolkien envisioned.

Just giving the license away to anyone! What happened?

There goes LOTR's dignity as a franchise.

This is so bad....

@teh_destroyer: Clearly they are doing this because they are rolling in cash and able to fund any project they wish.

Posted by NaDannMaGoGo

This looks absolutely terrible and it will fail.

Man the art style looks bad aesthetically as well as in regards to gameplay purpose. Making out units on that background will be a pain in the ass.

Posted by jmr1415

It takes a very, very special kind of game to make me feel physically ill... well done Monolith Productions you've managed to dive to the lowest possible level.

Posted by MeatSim

This is just really weird.

Posted by theveej

So golum is slark, they only showed 3 spell. I wonder if they have 3 normal spell + stats + 1 ult formula from dota or some sort of new formula. Gandalf only has 2 spells? This fails as a player profile video and god damn this game looks bad.

Posted by Vorbis

I'm sure everyone will remember this game as fondly as Demigod.

Edited by ch3burashka

To be fair, it's a perfectly capable MOBA clone, perfectly suitable for console controls. The LOTR setting, however, is completely unnecessary. Also, from what I understand, there's no segregation between factions, so you can have Sauron and Gandalf fighting on the same side against Galadriel and Gollum, which is kinda stupid.

EDIT: The gameplay looks fun, but the narration is creatively bankrupt. Shut up and let me watch the game!

Posted by Asmodai_00

This is literally the worst game ever invented.

Posted by Bakaneko

Yeah, do not want.

Like MOBAs, for the most part. Like LOTR for the better part...

Do not like this.

Posted by Gabriel

"As an enchanter Gandalf is wise enough to wield an Eleven Ring of Power"

WTF is this Shit, Gandalf's a wizard.

Posted by jorbear

I love MOBAs and LOTR, but I just can't see this working out well.

I know it's part of the fiction of lotr but, just the way they deliver it. It just sounds so hokey, like a bullet point on the back of the box.

Posted by newblacknoise

This game just makes all geeks look bad.

Posted by Mumrik

I think they're falling into the same trap Demigod and quite a few other AA/AAA attempts on MOBAs have done.

Too few heroes and items. They're aiming for a more streamlined concept that is more accessible and doesn't scare off more casual players or players who are new to the genre. They somehow haven't realized that the stupid complexity is what actually draws people to play and keep playing DotA/HoN/LoL etc.

Wow... talk about late to the party. I would have loved this game 10 years ago when LOTR and DOTA were both novel.

With the Hobbit coming out in a few months and Leauge of Legends being the most played game in the world I'd say their timing couldn't be any better.
Posted by FunExplosions

Last time I checked, Gollum wasn't the same size as humans. Fuck this game.

I threw up a little when I heard the term "tank-y" in relation to Gandalf.

GOD WHY WON'T SOMEONE DO SOMETHING ORIGINAL WITH THE LORD OF THE RINGS PROPERTY. If someone actually tried to be creative with Lord of the Rings, I bet something really cool could be made.

Posted by mrsmiley

This game makes me uncomfortable.

I'm sorry for you Monolith. So so sorry
