The Lord of the Rings: Legends of Middle-Earth, released on AND and iOS, is another game created on the wave of popularity of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings movie trilogy. This time, we are dealing with an uncomplicated free-to-play RPG with strategy and collectible card game elements. The company Kabam, known for its many best-selling browser productions, is responsible for its creation.
The essence of the game is to create a team consisting of iconic characters known from J.R.R. Tolkien's trilogy and participate in subsequent battles with more and more demanding opponents. Starting the game, we choose one of the following races: humans, elves, dwarves or hobbits. As we progress, we are successively unlocking and recruiting newer and newer characters from the list of over 100 heroes, including Aragorn, Boromir, Legolas and Frodo. Each of them, of course, has their own unique skills, and we gain additional bonuses for recruiting two heroes with complementary skills. For example, a team made up of hobbits alone will result in a powerful combo, which can change the fate of more than one battle.
The Lord of the Rings: Legends of Middle-Earth allows you to create three independent teams, which you will use depending on the opponent you meet. Playing alone, we participate in the campaign, set in various regions of the Middle-Earth, such as Eriador, Gondor, Rohan or Mordor. In each location, we have to eliminate several enemies, and then face a powerful boss. The fights take place automatically, and the result is determined primarily by the strength of our team. As the battles continue, its members of course gain experience, which in turn improves their skills. We can also increase our heroes' stats by using various power-ups, available in the game store for real money. If we decide not to use the microtransactions, it may turn out that our teams aren't strong enough to defeat a boss. To make that team more powerful, we will have to repeat the already won battles many times.
Like Kabam's other browser-based productions, The Lord of the Rings: Legends of Middle-Earth has the option to take part in PvP duels with live opponents. They take place in special arenas, and their result is determined by the experience and skills of our team.
In terms of graphics, those in The Lord of the Rings: Legends of Middle-Earth are at an average level, typical for modern browser MMORPGs, although the character models have been made in detail and we can easily recognize familiar faces from Tolkien's trilogy.
