The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar Re-review // MMO /// Eurogamer
LOTRO looks absolutely, astoundingly right. Characters look correct, the world is beautifully crafted and enemies match the best drawings that the Tolkien Legendarium has attracted in sixty years. The Shire looks as good as the movies, Bree (though bigger than we expected) is gloriously rickety, like an old medieval English town, and the build of the Elven and Dwarven towns nail ethereal and indomitable respectively.

My re-review of LOTRO is up, at last. If you've never been arsed enough to read any of my writing and you count yourself a friend, would you kindly have a gander? It's not brilliant, but it's surely solid.

Ha! xxx As you know, there's a big difference between your writing voice and your diary voice...

S'good. Told me everything I'd want to know if I was considering playing, without getting boring.

Got confused by this bit though:

(red is direct damage, yellow damage over time, green heals, yellow)

Wot no blue? Presumably editing/proofing slip up?
