Edit: Sorry...that was lame of me

Edited by theMuse

Yes it was.
 
Also this trailer was...pretty lackluster.

Oh yeah, this exists.

Interesting.

Posted by jorbear

Oh yeah. This game.

Posted by Stealthmaster86

Gameplay footage is all I care about for this game.

Posted by dbz1995

After watching the Dragon Age II trailer, this just doesn't quite cut it. Still, hope this game has local multiplayer and is awesome.

They shoulda KOTOR'd it.  There is zero suspense left in anything to do with trilogy timeline.

Posted by blaze503

wow that was bad, just a bad cinematic.

Posted by Nytrik

We'll see, but I want to watch the movies now..

Posted by crusader8463

Cool trailer, but no gameplay = no interest.

Posted by zymase

Trolls. Why'd it have to be trolls?

That made me laugh.

And now, a gameplay video!  Sometimes I wonder who at publishers still thinks that releasing a CG trailer is that great of a marketing tool - I mean, we don't play the trailers.

The mere fact that this is made by Snowblind makes me hopeful, but why designers refuse to extend the universe, rather than sticking solely to the trilogy time-line, I'll never get. The old wars with Sauron, or even before, would be far more interesting to me than yet another story during the trilogy timeline. 
 
Still, it's Snowblind.

@Jimbo: true dat. and what istari was he supposed to be? def not radagast or one of teh blue wizards.
Posted by ViciousAnchovy

To nerd it up a bit, freezing someone into a block of ice seems a bit extreme for the magic in LOTR. Then again, the movies did have Gandalf and Saruman flinging each other across the tower with magic.

Posted by Slaneesh

A trailer that removes any interest i already dindt have in the game. 
 
 
Impressive. To fail that hard is quite a feat

Posted by Myrmidon

That looks aggresively mediocre.

Posted by MeatSim

They should have had a war in south the weathers much nicer down there i bet.

Posted by Fontan

If they hadn't used the LoTR name (and movie soundtrack, incidentally), I'd never have figured this ugly piece of shit was meant to be related to it.  
 
I love the books and it pisses me off that they insist on releasing crappy stuff related to it, just to take a little of the profit the movies amassed.

Looks cool, but what does this have to do with lord of the rings? Elves, dwarves and orcs isn't enough of a connection these days.

I would have liked to see a game depicting the first war against Sauron, myself, that'd be one hell of a boss fight.
Posted by TaliciaDragonsong

It's not a LotR games before a Troll bursts through a wooden door/gate innit?
 
Also, yes, yes, yes, I love the LotR music at the end!
I wanna see gameplay tho, need to decide if my regular role as support/ranged is a good option because other wise I will be chopping shit up with a Dwarf. Good times.

Posted by bellmont42

that troll sounds like a doom monster with the jurrasic park t-rex sound mixed in there... whoa

Posted by pavakah
I believe there is now critical mass for a youtube video, a la David Caruso's one liners, full of nothing but trolls smashing through doors, bellowing roars,  followed by smash cuts to black? 
  
I've never played a LotR video game -- is this how every level ends, or what?
Posted by MordeaniisChaos

Cool animation bro. Hopefully the game is better than this shit.

@Meatsim: Nah.  Harad is all desert.  Who wants to fight in a desert.  That said, how north is this?  I don't remember any part of the explored Middle Earth being snow covered for any reason other than elevation.

I want some company to take a stab at the Fourth Age and the final war against Melkor.

Agreed. I wonder whether Tolkien Enterprises (or whatever they're called now, if they even handle licensing anymore) might be forcing companies to stay within certain fictional time-frames, though. I could see that being one reason that companies haven't expanded, because barring that, I have no idea why someone wouldn't have taken a stab at it.

From what I've seen it's a bit more cartoony ingame.. The trailer is ok and a lot of people do like seeing CG.

Posted by S0ndor

Uh... wizards are not exactly common in Middle Earth so who is this guy supposed to be?

But look closer! The warrior is a dwarf and the rogue is an elf, and they are expected to work as a team! We're bound to get some intriguing cultural conflict and hilarious banter from that right?

Ye on LOTR lore can be made so much games, that even don't fall in to LOTR original story.

Edited by PjotrLeschenko

Generic dwarf and elf, I'm okay with that, but there are like a dozen wizards. And a lot don't care for the war between Sauron and the 'good guys', but since when did the games of Lotr do a good job with the story? Although I understand that they had to put it in to give the gameplay more variety.

Posted by uroboros

the action in this is ridiculously boring and wooden, I thought the trailer before this one was much better. Last time I checked orcs don't just stand still for you to kill them.

Posted by Yodasdarkside
@Turambar: Caradhras?
Posted by Turambar
@Yodasdarkside:   That's snow by elevation.  The Misty Mountains isn't exactly that far North, at least in my mind.
Posted by Goblinoid

Uh... Somehow I expected more..

Posted by Fearbeard

*waits for gameplay trailer*

Edited by Onno10

Reminds me of dragon age, but then again, dragon age is IS lord of the rings.

Posted by StrikerTheLizard

*People are still making LOTR games in 2010* 
:)

Posted by LordCraven

Are there any LOTR trailers, that don't include a troll busting a big door?
