A Fitting Side Story For The Lord of The Rings
14 August 2014
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.
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: 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.
Summary: For a DND purist, they will only be amused. But to hack and slash spelunkers, they will love the game. I have not finished the game yet, but based on what I've read; you are wise to play first time through as an Elf and make sure you read a walkthrough; not for spoilers, but to understand how best...
Pros: First, I fully agree with "samgamgee"'s review so will not repeat what he said but add to it. What he left out and why I gave it 4 stars is the co-op play, which is excellent. The game reminds me of Dragon Age, but a little more arcadish. However, you cannot do co-op in dragon age which was the g...
Cons: Fights are fun, but you always feel one swing behind what the character is doing when it gets crazy. Voice acting is so bad is funny, I hope it is what they were going for, but I do not think so. Like to see some better spells for the Mage and better looking spells; boring. The manual SUCKS; I ke...
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.
A game that could be better, but could be much worse.

Summary: Overall, I LOVE this game, I never really complain about a game if I like it, but there are a few things with this one. The main, and probably the only real complaint I have about this game is the combat variety.
Summary: I have been waiting for a game as amazing as Champions of Norrath in regards to console multiplayer rpgs and I thought this game might finally do it and while this game comes close it isn't quite as satisfying as it could have been.
