Summary: This game is one that made me mad A LOT, and I'm not at ALL an angry gamer. Basically your either defending or on the offensive. Both have leverage on each other. You will encounter annoying deaths such as not being able to get up once knocked over by an enemy Warrior or being picked up and dropped to your demise by a Nasgul. If you want a LOTR game that is like the movies or books, this isn't it.
Summary: This game has nothing too bad or too good about it. Graphics are amazing. Very easy to defeat and once you defeat it its kinda boring. I do like how you can be the evil side though. You can ride horses for the good side and wargs for the bad side. You can be oliphants, trolls, mouth of sauron, wringwraths, and ents. You dont go through the game as main characters but as normal soldiers. After getting high enough poitns you can be the main characters though.
Summary: I bought the Lord of the Rings Conquest about a month ago. At first the game was so cool! Good graphics, replayablity, a winning storyline, all things that you want in a game. On paper the devlopers did everyything right, but when it comes to owning that game compared to games like Left 4 Dead, Grand Theft Auto 4, or Halo 3 this is a game that will after 2 weeks, be collecting up dust in your game cabinet.
Summary: I bought the game thinking that it would be amazing. It turns out that it is an average game at best and a horrible one at worst. First of all, the classes are totally unbalanced. Archers have head shots and mages have shields and magic fire. Scouts are average and are really only good for sneaking around the map and assassinating a few AI's.
Summary: After playing the demo and watching previews. This game to me is just another collection to your LOTR collection, for fans. The game is exactly like battlefront battle standard and how they work as choosing a class from Ranger, Scout (assasin), warrior, mage, and heros, etc. The combat is a bit awkward when you can't hit anyone with basic attacks. There's short distances to where you strike and if you miss them they have the better chance to go for kill.
Summary: Lord of the Rings: War in the North is a good game in it's own right. However this game is most enjoyable when you play three player co-op with friends online. The nice cinematic cut scenes help hold the storyline together, and the graphics and audio are well up to par for modern day Xbox games.
Summary: I recently bought War of the North as I have always been a fan not only of the Lord Of The Rings games but of Snowblind. I thought the graphics of the game were fantastic and the storyline engaging. The controls were easy to get to grips with and they were not made complicated for executing the skill moves you could unlock. However I found the saving of the game was crazy.
