I have been in the LotR Online beta for the past two cycles. Though I'll admit I went back to WoW with the release of the BC expansion no other game I have personally played looked as good as LotR Online. I have a good system and had everything video max'd and the game looks amazing. Even so I read the high-res textures were supposedly not even in the game yet. I wish I could share some screen shots since my Hobbit at the waters edge in the Bog is my current desktop. The Shire and a few other areas are just amazing. Yeah they are working on the tree trunks because trees sway with the winds. No biggie who spends more than a second or two looking at a tree when the view from a mountain side or Weathertop in the distance is so much more appealing?

Let me just say I have yet to play Conan and I know that looks great. But I have played UO, EQ, AC, DAoC, AC2, SWG, WoW, EQ2, D&DO, and a few others not worth mentioning. LotR Online looks the best and if you are tired of the cartoon candy-land of other MMOGs LotR will be right up you alley.

Yes being able to play an Orc, Troll, or any of the other evil races would have been cool. Most likely that will be in the add-on.

If I had to predict. I would say next year this time. WoW will still be number one with LotR running a distant second. Just my two cents and I could be wrong but from what I have seen the game is second most polished MMOG I have beta tested to this date.
