To Arms! Engage Your Enemy in Lord of the Rings: War in the North | Review

New Gamer Nation
14 December 2012
  • Conclusion: Rating: It is no easy feat to create an entirely separate storyline out of a story as successful as The Lord of the Rings . Non-canon characters can either be underdeveloped or so overly developed that how they fit into the story at all seems contorted. Snowblind Studios did a wonderful job with The Lord of the Rings: War in the North , making you really feel like you play a crucial role in the survival of Middle Earth, even though you are not a direct part of the...

The Lord of the Rings: War in the North

BluRay Authority
28 January 2012
  • Excerpt: The Lord of the Rings hasn’t spawned a great video game legacy, but does War in the North mark a turn in the right direction? While you will cross paths with familiar characters like Aragorn, War in the North tasks you to be part of a new Fellowship, with a new story all to itself. The game follows three characters, a dwarf warrior, an elf ranger, and a human mage, whichever the host plays as taking the central role in conversations.

The Lord Of The Rings: War in the North Review

29 December 2011
  • Summary: As I started the review I highlighted the lack of strong Lord Of The Rings video games and I must say the War in the North stands out amongst the titles previously released.

  • Summary: If you’re reading this, then you surely know all about the one ring and its powers. After all, it’s the main reason for the formation of Frodo’s fellowship, and its resulting journey throughout Middle Earth. The wonderful and perilous journey was well told by author J. R. R. Tolkien. Though, Peter Jackson, the talented director, also deserves credit for bringing the three novels to the big screen.

  • Excerpt: Being a decent reviewer (which I indeed hope I am) requires you to do a little bit of research, and now-a-days it seems that merely playing the game doesn't cut it.
  • Pros: Pretty Graphics, Pretty Environment, Decent Multiplayer
  • Cons: Slow despite being short, Combat is monotonous, Your Head Asplode

Talking About Games
13 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Lord of the Rings: War in the North meets us at a very strange time in our gaming lives. Eight years after the Peter Jackson films rekindled interest and at least a full year before the projected release of the next LOTR movie, it’s hard to avoid the initial feeling that LOTR: War in the […]

  • Conclusion: Lord of the Rings: War in the North is fine for a few hours of jolly good fun, but once you realise that the game has played its hand early and really has nothing else to offer then the lustre is soon lost. Poor AI, boring combat and pointless quests all add up to a disappointing game that would be better off dropped into the fires of Mordor.

You Face a Dúnadan Now!

  • Conclusion: Three people defeat an entire siege by themselves. Maybe Aragorn should have taken them with the Fellowship instead.
  • Pros: The environments and weapon/armor models look great.
  • Cons: "Defend this point for X amount of time" wears out its welcome fast and early.
