I've been hooked on this game for a couple of months and really enjoy it. It is basically a less-crowded version of World of Warcraft set in Middle-Earth during the War of the Ring. What makes things interesting is that they have two different payment models. You can play the game for free, but pay cash for points that can be used for a variety of useful things like unlocking additional quests or additional storage or you can subscribe for the typical $9.99/mo. I started out with a free account, but realized that at the rate I was playing, the subscription was a better deal. What I liked about it was that I had a chance to play a bunch without spending a dime to determine whether or not l liked the game.
