  • Excerpt: Let’s start with a confession: I have never, jamais, seen any of the Lord of the Rings movies. And except for the first part, I also never saw the Godfather series. This to point out that for many I’m branded as a culture barbaria.

  • Summary: It has been quite awhile since the last release of a game based on the Lord of the Rings franchise and to most that wasn't a problem. However, Warner Bros.

  • Excerpt: Frodo and his pals get all the press, but while they’re wrestling with evil jewelry, a powerful villain works to yoke the free lands of the north beneath Sauron’s sway. A dwarven Champion, an elven Lore-master, and a Dúnedain Ranger band together to rid Middle-earth of this new malevolence.
  • Pros: + Bloody, action-packed combat against scores of Middle-earth creeps; tense boss battles., + Slow but steady skill and gear upgrades; three-person co-op; detailed locales; rich sound design.
  • Cons: ? No rearranging our inventory? Why not?

Lord of the Rings: War in the North Review

  • Conclusion: War in the North is also quite a lengthy game, which although sounds great on paper does work against the overall experience. Levels themselves are quite linear with very few branching paths, NPC interaction although used sparingly seems to get progressively more uninteresting as the game draws on.

17 June 2011
  • Excerpt: I’ll be honest: I haven’t read through any of the Lord of the Rings novels from start to finish. In fact, I have yet to finish the movies – what can I say, I just never was much of a movie guy, though I did manage to watch The Hobbit multiple times as a kid.
