Personal review
Un mal plagio del WoW, y encima plagado de errores.
De nada sirve usar un mundo interesante si el juego no está a la altura.

A persistent world RPG with thousands of players. Based on the works of J.R.R. Tolkien and set in 'The 4th Age'. The developers have endeavored to portray Tolkien world as accurately as possible even to the point of implementing permanent death. However NPC and monster will almost never kill a player and player killers will suffer great consequences. Choice of race determines where a player starts in the game. Though not to full scale, the game world is huge and has countless dangers in between settlements. Races will be likely remain separated except for certain communities between them and rare fellowships that travel great distances, like the books.

Vivendi Universal Games and Turbin were developing Middle Earth Online for Sierra On-Line. Vivendi left the project. Sierra On-Line formed their Yosemite Entertainment division and transfered all their experienced artists to it. Sierra then had Yosemite Entertainment fire all its employees. Codemasters hired nearly all of Yosemite Entertainment's former employees. Turbin made a deal with Midway and Codemasters to publish this game. And finally, the name was changed.
