The sci-fi genre is a favorite among many developers. Why? Because there are, in essence, no rules. You want a hyper blaster in your game? Go for it. On the other hand, modern day warfare games require detail and accuracy to acquire realism.

The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar seems to be shaping itself already into a masterwork creation of well-executed visualizations and accurate, if slightly limited, gameplay.
