The Lord of the Rings: War in the North
8 December 2011
Conclusion: Lord of the Rings: War in the North is a game made for Tolkien and LotR fans. If you've appreciated the stories and characters in the movies and the books, then chances are you'll be intrigued by the characters and events in this game. It's quite skillfully entwined with the main plot of the LotR trilogy, offering accounts of several crucial battles that took place in the Northern part of Middle-Earth, while Frodo and his companions were carrying out the main plan...
Pros: An interesting account of elves, dwarfs and Dunedain rangers as they counter Sauron's Northern armies, decent voiceovers, fun coop;
Cons: Outdated visuals, stuttering problems often lead to excruciatingly low framerate, AI gets confused in battle sometimes, mundane combat which you've experienced many times before.
