Ain't no cow milked enough like The Lord of the Rings.
My first impressions were not good. Bilbo moved like a sack of potatoes, invisible walls everywhere, and rather stiff movement.... But it was an interesting first level, not unlike Twilight Princess: An introduction with no combat, but instead a ton of mundane tasks that sets the mood for the beginning of the adventure. By the end of the first level, I was kinda impressed!
Basically, it's not as fantastic as I remembered it to be, but it has an undeniable charm
