    This opinion will change once you buy it and play it, trust me. It doesn't look realistic in the Skyrim/Fallout sense, it still looks cartoonish, it's very aesthetically Nintendo.

    Honestly the game is fucking fantastic.

    Does it really matter though? I mean most LOTR fans wouldn't really care what it's based off of to be honest, as long as it's a good game, which I thought the first game was pretty great.

    I would love some stuff based on the first or second age. There's plenty of unique locations like Angband, Gondolin and Menegroth, and it would be nice to involve characters like Feanor, Turin or Beren/Luthien. The ring story is getting a bit watered down in pop culture.

    A game set in Numenor or during one of the ancient battles like the Nirnaeth Arnoediad or the Dagor Bragollach would be pretty cool.

    Games I've played recently:
    • Diablo 3: Finished Act V, and played a bunch of adventure mode until I got bored. I've only done single so far, and some friends asked me to do multi with them, so I might hop on that soon.
    • SimCity 1: I was really put off by the complexity of the newer games, so I've learned to appreciate the simplicity of this one. Ready to move on to replaying SimCity 2000 now, but too lazy to buy it so far.
    • Don't Starve: Finally finished a game (don't ask) and got new characters. Doesn't add much replayability imo. I can always come back to this game just for the satisfaction of building a base and keeping out the creepies, but that's about it.
    • Thief (i.e. the Thief game named simply "Thief"): just started it, but like it so far. I kinda got my stealth fix a few months ago by replaying Vampire: Bloodlines, but I can only replay my favorite games so often. This one satisfies my love for the gameplay style, and I'm very impressed by the graphics/artwork too.

    Trying to finish Horizon: Zero Dawn (aka PS4 Tomb Raider + Zoids) and I'm making some good progress. Fun game but gets very repetitive.

    This is from the same developer responsible for Baldur's Gate I & II, Mass Effect I & II, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Dragon Age: Origins, Neverwinter Nights, and Jade Empire. How the mighty have fallen.

    The thing is it really isn't. Most of who made Bioware who they were left long ago.

    So much of the game was outsourced to other development and animation studios. This is EA not the team that made all those games.

    Yeah, you're right. I'm just saying that it really taints the legacy that the studio previously built.
