Lord of the Rings is one of the most beloved franchises of the past decade. With a kick ass trilogy, along with some pretty good titles for gamers. Yet the water for the Lord of the Rings as far as gaming is concerned has run dry. Middle-Earth is definitely in peril again with mediocre games coming out with the franchises name to that accursed Lord of the Rings: Conquest. There is no question as to why this franchise shouldn’t build on the first book from J.R.R. Tolkien to satisfy the drought. Yet this new title has nothing to do with any Lore found in Elrond’s Library. The GamersBliss crew was lucky enough to visit the Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment to get some hands on time with the title. It is a shame however, since Heather was waiting for the Animanics to jump out of the famous water tower on the studio’s lot... they never showed up.
