The Lord of the Rings: War in the North
26 December 2011
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.
Summary: Lord of the Rings: War in the North is a buggy, unbalanced mess of a game that doesn't even feel like it takes place in the LOTR universe.
Pros: Hanging out with your giant eagle friend will make you excited for The Last Guardian., Accurately represents the way spiders die - not upside down with their legs in the air like most insects, but right side up., It is a long game (maybe this is a con).
Cons: Doesn't actually feel like you are in the Lord of the Rings universe., Egregious balance issues plague all elements of the game, including combat, leveling, and loot., There are an inexcusable number of bugs and glitches.
The Lord of the Rings: War in the North Review | Not As Good As The War In The South
27 November 2011
Conclusion: The Short Version: War in the North has some fine ideas and a persistent and rewarding approach to loot-finding and gear, but it can't disguise mediocre combat mechanics, a disappointing story and some game-breaking glitches.
Pros: Some nice ideas, Loot items and gear are pretty cool, Splitscreen multiplayer is always a plus
Cons: Lacklustre story, Unsatisfying combat, Some hideous glitches
Excerpt: Det är helt galet att det var tio år sedan första filmen i Lord of the Rings-serien släpptes. Det känns som att det var igår. Detta lilla lagg i min tidsuppfattning gällande filmatiseringen av Tolkiens episka saga om små män med håriga fötter kan mycket väl ha att göra med underhållningsindustrins...
Excerpt: Utvecklarna ville göra ett actionspel i Lord of the Rings-miljö där 18-årsgränsen skulle göra att man inte behövde hålla tillbaka på brutaliteten. Lord of the Rings - War in the North är resultatet.
