It was good up until it stopped working

  • 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. The game itself tells a story not detailed by either Tolkien or CGI-obsessed nutcase Peter Jackson, but does take place in the latter's expansive LOTR universe.

Awesome Game!

  • 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. I decided to re-play the game from the beginning and pay extreme attention to the game progress to prevent any glitches.

Learn how to create your save points first

  • 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. The green bar that depicts the state of our defence was already halfway down when the trolls attacked and we were unable to go back to the beginning of the battle and try the first phase again.

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

Jason, Amazon

  • 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. The Issues/Bugs I had with this game will be in a separate section ( CONS ) GAMEPLAY This is classic hack n' slash RPG here and the gameplay is one of the big elements that makes this game...

Awesome Coop Experience - Overall Good Game

TJDyl, Amazon
7 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. First of all, I will say there are many similarities to Borderlands. You level up and then assign attribute points (strength, dexterity, etc) and then assign a skill point to a skill tree (a la Borderlands).

Nice but has a few downers.

  • 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...

Co-op pointless

helen1604, Play.com

  • 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.

Een redelijke game die niet in balans is

  • Excerpt: Er zijn heel wat games verschenen die vooral geïnspireerd zijn door de verfilmingen van J.R.R. Tolkien zijn The Lord Of The Rings verhalen.

Dit is een actie role playing game (rpg) dat zowel alleen als in co-op multiplayer gespeeld kan worden en werd door Snowblind Studios ontwikkeld en door Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Inc uitgebracht. De game J.R.R.
  • Pros: Drie te spelen personages, veel nieuwe krachten, soms tactiek tegen vijanden
  • Cons: Geen echte combo's, geen echte keuzes in dialogen, grafisch wat verouderd, soms te moeilijk
