    i remember when they first showed gameplay for an article on gameinformer. Charles Randall, a former dev @ Ubisoft who did Assassins Creed 2, accused Monolith of stealing his code. after a couple months it appears that went no where lol

    im not a huge LotR mega fan but i plan on picking this up for sure. looks like good combat and a dynamic world.

    Yeah, havent heard from that recently - though if you watch the videos it would seem he has a case.
    Maybe no lawyer?
    Or maybe they paid him already.

    The gameplay looks good, the graphics look good. Yet the setting has me worried it will get tired. Of all the settings in Tolkien's world that I would want to spend a game in, Mordor is the least interesting.

    Oh and whats with the two swords strapped to his back? Who does he think he is, Geralt of Rivia!

    When you see someone in a thread making the same canned responses over and over, click their name, click view forum posts, and see if they are a troll. Then don't feed them.

    That is what has me interested and worried at the same time, with that system be procedurally generated like that claim or will it just end up scripted leaving very little variation.

    Looks like Assassin's Creed in LOTR.

    So is it a good idea to buy this game on a PC? I'm not looking forward to be scammed again with a consolized game with crappy kb+mouse function.

    If you don't own a controller such as an xbox or ps3 one that works with your PC, it's generally better to not pick up games that are released on multiple platforms, on another note you should simply have a controller as you have quite a few games you can play with a controller considering the use of steam feature you can get a pretty easy setup from your PC to your TV.

    It plays pretty well - very familiar control scheme to Batman (haven't played Ass Creed on console, only PC, so unsure if it felt familiar there). The notoriety system is quite interesting, and could get pretty difficult. I tried it 3 times, with different choices, and they were all different. It was the beginning of the game, so there wasn't a large amount of difference in overall feel to the promotions though.

    not watched the whole video yet or know that much about the game, one concern is the combat, is it going to be one of those games where you just spam one attack button and it just racks up the combos without you really doing anything?

    game looks cool though, i like the domination systen,
