The Lord of the Rings: War in the North

High-Def Digest
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. Though, Peter Jackson, the talented director, also deserves credit for bringing the three novels to the big screen.

The Lord of the Rings: War in the North Review

  • 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

  • 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. From the visual presentation to the AI, everything feels rushed, making for a game that, in spite of its co-operative offerings, is difficult to recommend.
  • 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 vilja att ge sig fan på att få serien att lyckas i spelvärlden.

Lord of the Rings - War in the North

  • 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. Ibland är man filmsugen på den där typen av actionfilm som knappt innehåller någon historia man behöver trötta ut hjärnan med, utan man kan halvligga i soffan, trycka in godis i munnen emellanåt och bara glo på filmen. Detta är den typen av spel.
