  1. I just want a open world game where you can create your own character and fight together with your army against the army of Sauron, that would be awesome.

  2. One note of failure – Mordor was already that blasted landscape well before the events of the Hobbit – and Gondor in no time maintained troops on the Black Gate after Minas Ithil fell, which, again, was well before the events of the Hobbit. However, I am willing to overlook these story flaws because this game looks pretty like a pretty darn epic Assassin's Creed version of LotR.

  3. "Its just another assassin's creed!" BULL! AC sucked and they have to die and let go besides climbing and running on a tightrope is just for AC? This is going to be the most AWESOMEST game of the decade, deal with it!

  4. I'm not sure if it's on purpose or not, but Christian Cantamessa (the lead writer) takes short pauses when he is talking. I think he is thinking of what to say, but mainly because he has this epic, amazing story in his head, and he is trying not to spoil it. That's what I think at least, hahaha.
