Reminds me of Champions: Return to Arms on PS2.

Summary: This new edition made by "Snowblind Studios" is just what I was looking for. I wanted to replace my favorite PS2 game, with an updated PS3 version. Because Snowblind were the developers of both, I was willing to take a chance on it. And I couldn't be happier! But it is an old school hack & slash third person RPG, just like Champions: Return to Arms. If there is any other Champions: Return to Arms fans out there looking to replace it on your PS3, give this game a chance.
Summary: The Lord of the Rings: War in the North adds another dimension to the classic tale. Gamers play as a new trio of adventurers who help in the fight to destroy the One Ring of Power. Graphics are detailed and beautiful. Blood and gore add a gruesome and simply gnarly awesomeness to the game. Only complaint is the linear style of game play; I prefer to be able to wander where I please. But overall, this is a fun game for any true LOTR fan.
Summary: Compared to other RPGs, this game has untapped potential. However, I enjoyed playing it, the graphics and environments are great, the interface is easy, and you'll probably like it if you're a fan of LOTR. I also enjoyed the co-op. I wish this feature was present in more video games.
Summary: This game is really fun. Although the reviews on several sites and in several magazines give it a bad score it's a great game, especially if you enjoy Lord of the Rings. The graphics aren't AMAZING but the gameplay and the roleplay make up for it by far. If you like Lord of the Rings, I'd suggest this game.
Summary: This game was bought so that my boyfriend had something to play with his brother on Christmas. They loved it, its hard to find a decent off line co-op game, but this one is more then decent. I would highly recomend this game to anyone who likes The Lord of the Rings.
Summary: At first I couldn't believe my eyes when I found out this game was coming out. But then, even through the hype, I heard all the negative comments. Like, "It's sooooooo boring!" and "The gameplay sucks!!" Regardless, I had to try it for myself. And I was hardly disappointed. Before I begin, I will give one tip that is the most important in this game: CO. OP.
A Review for Baldur's Gate/Champions of Norrath Fans
4 January 2012
Summary: My husband and I bought this game because we were eager for something new along the lines of Baldur's Gate and Champions of Norrath, which we still LOVE, even after many years of gameplay. We figured this new offering would be our best bet of continuing this trend because of the Snowblind Studio connection. To help others, especially fellow couch co-op fans, this review offers some comparisons.
Summary: The Lord of the Rings: War in the North takes place concurrently with The Fellowship of the Ring. It follows an elf, a dwarf and a ranger as they attempt to impede Sauron's forces in the northern areas of Middle-Earth. The game features hack-n'-slash style combat with RPG features such as leveling up, skill trees and collecting of items. Each class (elf, dwarf, ranger) has it's own abilities.
Summary: Positives: Really Good Graphics, Fun Gameplay. Different secrets and abilities to find and use depending on which character you play with. Customizable characters (although this is somewhat limited- 6 choose-able faces, eye color, hairstyle, hair color, beards for each playable character). Thousands of different weapons, armor and combinations to obtain and upgrade. Can switch characters every time you load the game. Multiplayer for online players.
