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

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.

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.

An absolutely fantastic game. I've never agreed with the extortionate amount they charge for games but tbh aside from Batman: Arkham City this is the only one that hasn't been a major dissapointment. It's packed with Middle Earth Lore and history, back story and side quests and customisation. All the great elements of an RPG WITH yes WITH normal free flow not turn based combat. Combat wise it's like playing one of the old trilogy games Two Towers or Return of the King. Simply put this game is definitely a winner.

Such a good game, love the LOTR franchise and this gives you the ablity to immerse yourself into the land of middle earth. The characterises are really interesting choices, I like the different traits and ability for each. You have the choice of changing facial feature too which is fun. Very long campaign which is fun and thee is a good story involved and you get to see he LOTR characters in the film although Arwen in the game looks a bit creepy. Overall a good and fun play for all and a game that you can always go back to and play over.

Fight your way across the north of middle earth waging the campaign mentioned but never described in lord of the rings.
A black numenorean has taken command of an ancient citadel and summoned to him a giant army of orcs and ogres.Your job is to stop him and protect the free people of the north .Choose between a axe wielding dwarf a magical elf or a Dunedain ranger,but of course the choices dont stop there you can also choose where to spend your points, make the elf a offensive mage or a defensive healer,etc.The ranger can have stealth sword wielding or arrows skills or a combination there of .The type of combat you employ will be influenced by your character and in what direction you choose to evolve them.
The game is great with varied enemies, missions and prompts you to alter your tactics frequently as more deadly foes are suddenly unveiled.
The bad
American accents? in middle earth? REALLY? jars very badly when some of the voice actors have made the effort and others sound like there from the bronx version of middle earth.

Other than that its a quite involving if short romp through the hidden realms of lord of the rings

I was so looking forward to playing this after enjoying other games by Snowblind. Please check out the forums for the game to see how many issues people are having with trying to complete this game. I have been trying to complete it as a two player game. There are issues with the second character not saving and losing progress. You then have to get the second character to host, which means having to replay part of the game. Having started the game again reaching the end of chapter 1 no other options on the map, I'm now trapped with no where to go. Looking at the forums there are plenty of other parts of the game that are causing people to restart the game several times. This is the general advice given or to go online and walk it through with another player to get past it. I have never played a game with so many difficulties and having to go to such lengths to progress seems completely wrong. The actual game play is great and the visuals and characters but if a game is so badly put together with this many issues it makes it unplayable and a waste of money.
