Product Details:

Lord of the Rings: War in the North is a co-op Action RPG that immerses you and your friends in a brutal new chapter in the War of the Ring. Drawing inspiration from both the literary and film rights to world of The Lord of the Rings, players will bloody their axes on a wide range of deadly enemies and traverse both established and never-before-seen locations. The result is a journey that is both epic and intimate, familiar yet unexpected.

  • Action meets RPG
    • Intense, visceral, and satisfying combat. Rich, layered, and impactful character progression. In War in the North, you get both. Fight through the brutal realities of the War of the Ring, as you customize a new character in the universe Tolkien created. Immerse yourself and make your own mark on Middle-earth.
  • CO-OP at its Core
    • Middle-earth is too brutal for any one man to survive. Draw upon the strengths of each characters unique racial abilities and build your own fellowship of the three heroes to confront the growing army in the North. You must fight together or you will die alone.
  • An Untold Story
    • 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 toward an integral part of the storyline that is grounded in details from the nooks and various appendices.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bug Riddled game. NOT WORTH THE INVESTMENT The game in and of itself is fantastic. However, there are an egregious amount of glitches in the game that make it literally unplayable. My wife and I have played the title on both the x box 360 and PS4. PS4 would only allow one of us to save our progress. Thus my wife would need to restart her character every time we played (even when she signed into her profile that she "saved" her character under). The x box 360 version would not let us proceed after the first chapter. Thus, we were stuck in gaming purgatory after chapter one. Great game, however, a RIDICULOUS amount of glitches (others even beyond these two) make this game unplayable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LotR: War in the North-Solid RPG War in the North is a fun hack n' slash rpg, with some cool customization and satisfyingly brutal combat. I had an issue with a glitch after the Mirkwood level, but got around it by playing online(make sure to speak to Beleram the eagle every opportunity in the Mirkwood stage). But other than that bug, I had a blast with this game. The difficulty level was just right, and once you play through it, it unlocks a harder difficulty to play, giving you some nice re-play value. Over-all, this is a solid RPG. It won't be a classic, but it's a perfectly enjoyable time waster.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quite good. I've never really been a huge fan of the Lord of the Rings, but I still really enjoyed this game. There's a good story, there's a lot of different characters and weapons and abilities. A lot of people have said that they experienced glitches with their game, but I never had any problems. One thing that would make this game even better, would be if you could totally create your own character, with its own unique appearance. But overall, this is a pretty fun game, and it's kinda fun to chop the arms off of monsters and stuff.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Avoid This Game Okay, I wanted a good coop action RPG. I know it won't be as good as Skyrim or any other big RPG, but I came in with vast disappointment. First off.. Don't play this game alone. Its way better with a friend. I was playing with my brother. Playing with a friend or family member improves the game substantially. Sadly the game is only involves repetitive action. There's nothing to it. They're no puzzles and you stay on a predetermined path. I was kind of hoping for a little bit of freedom. That's not what I got sadly. Like any RPG, you can customize your fighter. You can't create you character altogether. But you can select armor and weapons. Let me go back to my other point about it being repetitive. This is the big problem with the game! There's no substance to it at all. But if you like games like Dynasty Warriors, this probably won't be that big of a deal (I'm not insulting Dynasty Warriors). Seeing that this is a coop action, I expect some sort of strategy. There really isn't any. If too many enemies are attacking your comrades, you can get them to back off by shooting them with arrows or spells. Now here's the part that really frustrates me. Near the end of the game, I was fighting a troll. Unfortunately, the troll took me down. So my brother would try to distract the troll so my A.I. partner can heal me. But the troll goes after the A.I. partner rather than my brother who was shooting at the troll, trying to distract him. Now, I don't mind a challenge in my games. I have played Dark Souls and loved it. But Dark Souls isn't cheap like this game! But I'm not done yet... After we died, we restarted the checkpoint and tried again. The troll didn't spawn back! So we couldn't just leave the area. I went back to the main menu to see if I can restart the chapter, but they don't have that option. I had to restart the whole game! This kind of stuff shouldn't happen in games these days! It infuriates me... I didn't restart the game. The only thing I liked is the controls. They feel right. But other than that, I really can't find anything redeeming. I really tried to like this game too. I don't recommend this to anyone. If you're a Lord of The Rings fan, you should give it a try, but just rent it. Overall, I give this game a 4.50/10. Thanks for reading!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's great! But it's not without its flaws This game is all around great! My only beef with it is the enemies which will make you tear your hair out. Having to strike even the most simple and weak enemies what feels like dozens of times can get quite repetitive and annoying. But other than that this game seems to shine everywhere else! From the great controls to the splitscreen co-op this game is a buy! That is if you're a gamer who can remain calm during some frustration!
