  • 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. Upon my “in-depth” research of this game I came across this post:
  • Pros: Pretty Graphics, Pretty Environment, Decent Multiplayer
  • Cons: Slow despite being short, Combat is monotonous, Your Head Asplode

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: The biggest problem with War in the North is the fact that it’s designed to be played with friends online. On the surface, this seems like a good thing.

  • Excerpt: It's been a while since we've seen a Lord of the Rings game - and for all the Ringers out there, the gaming world might feel a little dry without the presence of the franchise, especially while Star Wars gets a new MMO and a continuous slew of games.

  • Summary: It's not fair. Frodo, Gandalf, Aragorn, and the rest of the fellowship get all the glory, but without the brave struggles of so many others, they never could have succeeded on their vital errand.
  • Pros: A good assortment of Middle-earth environments and characters, Leveling up and acquiring new abilities is rewarding, Fun to collect powerful new weapons and gear
  • Cons: Automated save system leads to infuriating setbacks, Problematic revival mechanic, Frequently odd enemy behavior, Technical issues with multiplayer

  • Excerpt: Being a card carrying Lord of the Rings nerd, I approached the new game Lord of the Rings: War in the North with a certain amount of trepidation. You see, I'm also a Star Wars nerd, and any Star Wars nerd will tell you that you have to be careful with video game adaptations.

  • Conclusion: If you’ve played Battlefront then this will be all too familiar and suffers from all of the same issues as well. Even for newcomers and LOTR fans, this will be tough to enjoy due to the brevity of the game and the shoddy mechanics.
