Summary: Great game, good price. No complaints whatsoever. Game does not take a ridiculously long time to beat, however, it still has some gameplay value upon completion as you can start the quest again while keeping the inventory you had as you beat it. Although the objectives will remain the same, the enemies will be harder than the first time around because their strength will mirror the strength of your weapons. Better than other LOTR games I've played on xbox 360.
Summary: War in the North is a truly fitting side story to the Lord of the Rings. It's a story of a group of heroes who didn't get all the fame, told right. Likes: I really do like the fighting system in this game. Its built to be a team based game with available skills to add with every level. There were a couple times where this was an essential part of the gameplay.
Summary: I bought this product because I found it to be a great couch co-op experience with my cousin while it lasted. I bought it for his birthday, however after playing through about 4 hours there was a game breaking glitch/error/scratch. It did not allow us to play any longer and I very disappointed. Especially because I was not informed of this. There was no way that I could of scratched it because I only opened it once to place the disc into the tray.
Summary: Been playing through this game with two friends and it is a blast. Graphics are pretty good, especially the character models. Combat is very visceral and fun, with the various special abilities mixing in with quick-time like critical hits. Yes, it can be repetitive, but I can't think of any video game which does not contain repetitive combat mechanics. Throughout the campaign I still looked forward to each fight.
Summary: The game play in War in the North is typical hack and slash one. On medium difficulty, enemies take a good deal to bring down early in the game but after each level you will be putting points into stats that will help you bring down enemies faster, or to complement whatever play style you have.
Summary: As others have said, the multiplayer on this game makes it a memorable gaming experience. Alone, the game is fun and with a friend the game is a competitive race-to-kill for experience. The game is fairly easy on normal, so if you want a challenge play on a harder difficulty (though I beat the game on multiplayer so I'm sure that made it easier). Plenty of replayability and draw to play a New Game plus.
Summary: This game is pretty decent. The moves are kind of repetitive but fun to play. I have reached a point in the game in the castle that I can't pass. You are there with the heroes and are fighting about 10 orks. I have played this so many times and can't pass it. I have even restarted my game to build my hero up better and save some health's too but nothing helps.
