Gawk at Gandalf and Gollum in Guardians of Middle-earth

Warner Brothers' Guardians of Middle-earth is looking good thus far, but this trailer for the Lord of the Rings MOBA leaves something of a chalky taste in the mouth. Even if you're among the initiated, it's not particularly exciting, deciding instead to take an informative, in depth look at two of the game's many heroes.

Informative, sure, but these descriptions of the tank-like Gandalf and roguish Gollum don't quite have the flair of previous trailers. No matter, we needn't wait much longer to rush into the thick of battle and experience the action firsthand. Guardians of Middle-earth hits Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network later this year.
