Fun, not very buggy, good music score too.

  • Summary: This game is a LOT of fun. It actually has a little role-playing, not much, but a little. The music I thought was pretty good. The graphics are terrible though. This game is also pretty much only fun with friends. It's a good game, but it has poor lasting appeal if you have no one to play with. It's not very buggy either which is very hard to get with action, rpg games. The core fighting is nice, you are given plenty of skill choices and abilities.

Reminds me of the PS2 games

  • Summary: This game works a lot like the PS2 LOTR games that I enjoyed so much. For whatever reason I remember the older games being better, but that may just be me remembering them overly fondly.

  • Summary: I liked playing this game...until I beat it. The only thing I disliked about this game was that it had replays of the levels on higher difficulties...and then it just stopped there.

entertaining exlusively in multiplayer

  • Summary: I had a great time with this game, because I could sit down on my couch and play with my friends in co-op, however, I realize that the game had very little single player value, and therefore, unless you are like me and a huge fan of lord of the rings and playing with your buds, I wouldn't recommend it
  • Pros: Easy to learn, Fun To Play, Multiplayer
  • Cons: Too Short

Short but sweet.

  • Summary: I bought this game knowing it came from the same studio as Dark Alliance as well as the need for my roommate and I needed a new game to play. We found the game to be a nice break away from FPS and it was pretty in all of the cut-scenes/backgrounds. I only wish that there was more to the story, by the third play-through (Legendary), we were able to beat it in one day, the final boss in less than eight min.

Playing solo: Xbox 360

Chris H, Amazon
12 January 2012
  • Summary: I've only played solo and using the Xbox 360. I've played Baldur's Gate DA 1 & 2, Champions of Norrath, Drakan, Dragon Age, Fable and so on... so this is my kind of genre. First the combat system for this kind of game is the best I've seen. It's fast, tight and exciting. I really hope future developers will follow through with this kind of system, cause the same ol swing your sword back n forth until he goes down gets boring.

Solid Hack and Slash Game--But a Little Dated

Kevin M. Derby, Amazon
27 November 2011
  • Summary: The XBox 360 version of "Lord of the Rings: War in the North" is a fun if somewhat underwhelming hack and slash game. The controls are solid and the three lead characters to choose from are acceptable if not exactly inspiring. Unlike previous LOTR games--I'm thinking the PS2 version of "The Third Age"--the game draws from both the books and the movies. Players will be able to visit places highlighted in the books and not films (such as the Barrow-Downs).
