Product Features

  • Intense, visceral, and satisfying combat. Rich, layered, and impactful character progression. In War in the North, you get both. Find and equip the best loot, upgrade your hero using a wide range of skills and items, and feel the intense satisfaction of rushing into real-time battles with friends by your side. Fight through the brutal realities of the war on all fronts that were brought to life in the lore. Immerse yourself and make your own mark on Middle-earth
  • Build your own fellowship of three heroes to confront the growing army in the North. The survival of your group and all of Middle-earth depends upon your uniquely skilled heroes working together. You must fight together or you will die alone, and these high stakes make the experience of playing together both socially engaging and incredibly satisfying. The first time you rescue a friend who has been grabbed by a troll and is desperately yelling for help, you will understand what we mean
  • While much attention and focus has been placed on the journey of the One Ring, the assault on Middle-earth hits all corners of the map. War in the North turns our attention towards an integral part of the storyline that is grounded in details within the books and various appendices. This is not someone else’s fight. This is your own effort to forage a way through the dark, dangerous, and unknown landscape, defending all that is yours. This is your war

Неплохо (и это в лучшем случае)
Я решил купить эту игру после просмотра нескольких трейлеров этой игры. Я лично считал, что это будет Dragon's Dogma но в сеттинге Властелина колец. На деле же игра мне напомнила игру для PS2 King Arthur. И в плане графики и в плане анимации и в плане боевой системы игра далеко не самая лучшая на PS3. Вот на PS2 она смотрелась бы очень хорошо, хотя и уступала бы God of War II. А так - очень среднего качества продукт. Если бы не сеттинг, я бы её не стал покупать.

Ordered it just right before it lasted, only 1 left in stock! and Got it just right after sunday! Super prices and super delivery services! I'm also a fan to the LOTR movies and wouldn't want to let this deal slip by! Although the graphics and fighting aren't that great, but still its a really good LOTR to play!

Surprisingly Fun
I didn't expect to be amazed by this game but this game actually works. I did pass by some weird glitch/error in the game but it wasn't during the battle itself so it wasn't so frustrating.

You can play 2 local co-op and the 3rd co-op has to be online. You can choose the axe wielding, cross bow owning Dwarf, or a sword swinging, bow and arrow aiming Ranger, or a staff and spell casting Elf.
Being a girl I chose the girl Elf at first, but then my love for bow and arrow made me chose the male Ranger.

Each character has its own skills and special abilities that you can utilize in-game. The Ranger can find secret stash that was supposedly hidden by other rangers, and can see glowing footprints that will lead you to that secret stash. The Elf can collect herbs scattered around the level and mix them to make potions that will heal, increase exp gain, etc. The Dwarf.. I'm sure can do something. Haven't played him yet.

The story goes along with the Lord of the Rings trilogy but it doesn't feel like it's out of place because we're playing 3 side characters that apparently helps out the success of Fellowship's mission.
The levels may feel a little bit repeated, the survive "as long as you can while guarding/waiting for someone" type gets tiring after a while but, with the cool slow-motion camera, it makes you want to kill a lot of enemies just to see how their head is severed.
The enemy gets harder and sometimes are really annoying when they just wont die! But that's the appeal, right? Besides, who wants an easy hack and slash game?

After defeating the main enemy you've been chasing since chapter 1, Sauron is defeated you finished the game and now you are given a chance to replay it again to unlock the rest of your skills, try out different characters and simply get stronger by gaining more exp.

Did I mention you can change your face and hairstyle in-game?
