Buggy but fun if you get it on the cheap and a LotR fan.
11 April 2015
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Excerpt: I have to say this game wasn't what I expected. It is set in the Lord of the Rings world but I didn't think it was a particular new game. The concept is very much the same as previous games because you play a character fighting in a war; of course, there are still orcs to kill and all sorts of...
