Fun, But Very Repetitive.

Summary: this game is ok, but the combat looks like a hacknslash, but it takes awile to kill a enemy like an orc or a troll, im still on the part 55 of the 1st chapter of the game, cuz im in the citadel and the 1st boss in there is hard wenever my party members die i need to respawn them and the orcs attack me to hard on it, very hard game!
Summary: Lord of the Rings is an ok co-op hack'n slash if you are into those. The freedom of choice is quite limited and basically you play in a tube without much freedom to choose your own bath. Anyway, with the limited selection of drop-in drop-out co-op's this is still easily worth the discount price.
Summary: Lord of the Rings: War in the North will leave you with mixed feelings. The story and characters are well written within the LotR world, but the fighting mechanics are easy and repetitive. It is the coop for 3 people and the never ending amount of loot which keep this game interesting.
Conclusion: Brilliant one player game but it is nigh on impossable to save with any consistancy when playing as a two player co-op. This is due to a software glitch and has made what should have been a great Birthday gift for my other half a waste of money. Such a shame as the gameplay is great.
Conclusion: Game is good, I played the game through 3 times and maxed my character out in the best armour and weopns i could get, The biggest down fall to this game is that it becomes very easy, the 2nd play through was a breeze as was the third. Game has a major bug also, if you play as dwarf and use the fire on the arrow move it will kill any enemy in one shot or 2 or 3 shots for bosses, this is based on if you have a good enough shotbow, Most broken thing in game, makes it not...
