Product Description

Platform: Xbox 360 | Edition: Standard Edition

The Lord of the Rings War In The North is an epic multiplayer action/RPG video game based on the renowned stories by J.R.R. Tolkien. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment holds the rights to develop video games based on both the literary and motion picture content from The Lord of the Rings, allowing Snowblind to explore original and familiar narrative elements in more than 12 areas, of which only three have been seen in the films.

Breaking new ground as the first mature-rated LOTR video game, The Lord of the Rings War In The North evolves the RPG genre through innovative online, interdependent co-op play for up to three players who form their own Fellowship and engage in brutal combat.

Exploring previously unseen lands, story elements and characters as well as elements familiar from past feature films, gamers experience extensive character customization and development, expansive co-op gameplay options and upgradeable weapons, skills and special abilities. Players must play together or perish as they work to defeat Sauron's forces in the North.
 

  • Create your own Fellowship - Together, players and their friends will experience an epic, story-based adventure through vast Middle-earth to experience storylines and characters going beyond what has been seen in the feature films and previous games
  • Play as a team or perish! - Social play is redefined through groundbreaking online, interdependent co-op gameplay which enables three different gamers to play as a complementary group where individual skills enhance the success of each team member
  • Brutal gameplay - The Lord of the Rings War in the North is the first M-rated The Lord of the Rings game on the market, authentically derived from The Lord of the Rings lore and delivering on action RPG principles

3.0 out of 5 stars I Prefer the War in the South 11 Oct 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Firstly I would like to say that it is clear the developers had good intentions for this game, however that alone does not make a game.

Yes the graphics are good in places but the game play is repetitive beyond belief, basic hack and slash game play where you start at a certain point and are unable to deviate to any degree and merely have to fight your way through to the end of level boss. After a while I found this very tiresome. If it were not for the different scenery you could be mistaken for thinking every level were the same.

Now I can forgive the above point as I knew this was the case before I bought the game, what I cannot forgive is the incredibly one-dimensional characters. This took me truly by surprise. All three have to be the most do-gooder type characters ever invented with the most pathetic personalities you could imagine. It's hard to describe just how naff they are. It wasn't long before I was skipping the cut scenes. And because of this I just couldn't get into the storyline, maybe it was also the fact that I knew this to be a non-canon story. This made it feel more like a chore to finish the game instead of the want to finish it.

All that said, there are far worse games to play; but let's be perfectly honest, this is no five star game. Five stars should be reserved for games like Skyrim, Arkham City etc. This is some way off those standards.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid, Enjoyable Action RPG 3 Dec 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I very much enjoyed playing this game. It's well balanced and true to the lore of Lord of the Rings. The graphics are very good, as good as any of the other current generation games (trudging through late night, rain soaked Bree is particularly satisfying). The combat is good - I find the system much better than, say, Dragon Age, and nicely gory. My only criticism is that it can be a little repetitive, and it takes a while to unlock combo attacks.

I haven't played this game co-operatively and don't much plan to, but the AI is fine. If you are down they will come and revive you quickly, and they are also quick to use their powers and special attacks, which is fine by me.

I haven't completed it yet but after playing for three hours the ending is nowhere near in sight. Looking at the map there are travel locations all over middle earth so there is the promise of visiting old and familiar locations, as well as braving the less-traveled areas to the north of the map.

The tech tree is varied and comprehensive; there are plenty of weapons choices and I have been quite impressed by the way in which you can match your 'loadouts' to your playing style. Whether you like sword and shield, two-handed swords, or dual wield, the game caters for all varieties (including bows and crossbows, axes and magic attacks).

As with all games it has its problems; thus far they have not been intrusive and I have only encountered one glitch (which was quickly remedied). The side quests can be absurdly easy, and as mentioned above, the combat is a little repetitive. Be prepared for a fair bit of button mashing.

That said it's a solid game and great fun to play - you will sink a lot of man hours into it whether you're a fan of LOTR or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Lord of the Rings game to rule them all 22 Jan 2013
By Troy
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Easing into this game is difficult, byt eventually you get the jist of the game. This is a game I will never sell and will play over and over, it's something about killing orcs and goblins I just find enjoyable! The whole concept of the game is fantasic. Levelling up, skill points, buying armour are nice touches to polish off the game. My only problem with the game is that it's a little repeatative and you find yourself fighting the same opponent all the time, I just felt I needed another challenge to face. Eventually that did come, but the lack of enemies is disappointing. That aside, I love this game. Very nice to play on multi-player with a friend too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid, fun RPG for loot whores especially. 22 Aug 2013
By Pete
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'll start off by saying that nobody should be handing over £30 odd for this game, because your money could be better spent on many other titles. However if you can pick this game up preowned for £15 at the maximum, it will not disappoint. The game has a mediocre storyline, focusing on three characters, waging war against a tyrant of the north who is allied with Sauron, therefore it will not cater to those looking for an experience related wholly to lord of the rings itself, this is rather a separate story which only occasionally links with the main epic we all love. That said, the characters of lord of the rings do feature within the game, offering helpful tips and giving side quests, but they will not ever engage in combat or come to your aid at any point.

If you can ignore this, in my opinion, minor detail, you'll have a fair few hours of storyline fun, in which whilst not the most wholesome experience for an offshoot of such an epic franchise, you will want to play on to discover the woes and victories that await our three companions and all whom they aid and are aided, by. As well as a somewhat engaging storyline, the real strength of this game is in its loot. You'll plow through hundreds, eventually I believe over 1000 enemies, and that's if you just take the straight road through the story, with no farming for level gains along the way. Whilst doing this you will amass more loot than you can shake a stick at, with some of it naturally being below par for your needs and thus readily available for selling to amass coins, to buy even more loot! It's guaranteed that throughout your play through, you'll be driven on and on by the chance of a new weapon with better stats or magical properties than your current one.
