I love this game

Ryan, Amazon
25 March 2015
  • Summary: I love this game. I wish it was a bit more "open world" though. The big problem is the famous glitch that everyone speaks about. You get to a point where you can't progress through the game anymore...and you can't even start anew with the progress you've made on your characters. Huge fail.

Glitch still not fixed

  • Summary: I thought this game was really fun but I got caught by the game ending glitch. if they ever decide to patch it I will up my stars. Research the glitches in this game before you play and you might make it through the whole game. I still have yet to start a new game out of frustration.

User Review

  • Summary: Decent game, but they could have done so much more with it. It had potential, for them to expand the story. More impact in choices would have been more interesting (like Dragon Age style) or something like that and more character interaction.

A Decent Hack n' Slash RPG Held Back by Bugs...

Jason, Amazon
15 November 2011
  • Summary: I am a huge Tolkien / Lord of the Rings fan so when I stumbled across War in the North I just had to have it. Despite some annoying gameplay bugs and Co-Op bugs I do not regret my purchase one bit, but what could of been a decent 4 star titles sadly gets knocked down to 3 stars.

Solid not great

Tim Janson, Amazon
7 November 2011
  • Summary: Lord of the Rings: War in the North comes at gamers from the angle that there was much more going on in Middle Earth than what we read in the books or saw in the films. There were other battles…other heroes fighting for the fate of Middle Earth. LOTR: WITN tells the story of these other heroes.

Buggy but fun if you get it on the cheap and a LotR fan.

  • Summary: This game could have been really good if it was supported well by the developers and had some of its major issues addressed by a patch, the game has some very faulty and ruining glitches to it (i.e look into the Mirkwood glitch for more details).

  • Summary: I was playing this game with a friend in co-op mode over a weekend and we were really enjoying the story, battles, and graphics - right up to the point where we were defending the fortress and had to face 2 trolls.

Awesome Game!

Josef Rodriguez, Amazon

  • Summary: Beautiful graphics, great storyline and a lot of fun! Yes, the game has glitches and bugs! My first time playing LotR: WitN, I got stuck in the Mirkwood. The game didn't provide me with the staff to progress to the next mission. I was extremely disappointed because the game is really remarkable.

It was good up until it stopped working

Inspector Gadget, Amazon

  • Summary: A lot of people have been commenting on how buggy this game is. Sadly, I was not spared the glitches. I was about just about the play the final chapter of the game when I got stuck between two checkpoints in Norinbad, and unable to advance any further. Very angry about this.

Awesome Coop Experience - Overall Good Game

TinNJ, Amazon
1 November 2011
  • Summary: I bought this game for coop play with my wife and I was not disappointed. We thoroughly enjoyed Borderlands and have been searching for something to replace that void. Finally, we found a great coop experience in Lord of the Rings: War in the North.
