Just thought I'd give my .02 on LOTRO:
1. I'm not a hardcore MMO player - don't have the time
2. I've played DAoC for about 8 6 months and I played WoW for about 5 months and FFXI very briefly on teh PC when it first came out - that is my previous experience.
I think overall the game plays well on my iMac using Vista. It has logged itself out 3-4 times - not sure why.
I think the world looks pretty good but it doesn't seem to be graphically blowing me away. The overall operational feel for me is very similar to WoW with the obvious difference of the "toon" world of WoW exchanged for Middle Earth. FFXI seemed to me (and maybe still is???) teh most realistic environments, i.e. least "toony". I'm a lvl 7 minstral and I just started crafting things so I can see how that can be mildly entertaining. Maybe I'm not a MMO guy at heart but I'm starting to get bored already and have found myself going back to Oblivion on Xbox when I want to get lost in a fantasy world. Based on my experience, I'd give it a 7 out 10 and tell people to definitely download the trial.
