Has anyone played Lord of the rings online before? I have been following the news about it becoming free to play so I am wondering if it will be worth the huge download? Is it a CPU/Ram heavy game?

Thanks in advance!

I've played LOTRO extensively since beta. Been in a static group (same guys, playing 3-4 hours every Monday night) for about 18months with our main characters. That's just so you know where I'm coming from :)

LOTRO can be heavy on your RAM with all the settings ramped up. Especially the optional super hi-res textures. These will actually cause the install to increase upto about 12Gb total.

That being said - the settings are pretty granular so you can sort things out as you want them. If you have a good (read 20Mb/sec+) speed USB memory stick you can use a program called Flashboost (here) to make loadtimes abit faster.

If you've got any more questions feel free to ask away :)

Thanks for the info, currently my machine can't handle that graphics so I was wondering if it would work on a new netbook I am planning I am getting so maybe I will test it out on that because I won't lose much trying.
