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 4 out of 5 by from Great Game for Lord of the Rings Fans This game is awesome especially for the price of 15 bucks. It is a mixture of dragon age origins and jade empire. Strengths -Coop splitscreen is awesome with friends -Great story, a lot of lore if you really talk to different characters. - Enjoyable fighting. For the ranger 2h weapon x is quick strike, y is heavy strike and then you can use a bow. You have special abilities such as striking a bunch of enemies at once with the 2h weapon and a charged arrow strike. The special abilities, ranger mode (more powerful strikes after several successful strikes), and combo strikes keep the x and y strikes from getting boring. -A good variety of enemy types and level of difficulty associated with each type. -Extra quests if you talk to people that give you awesome rewards such as a powerful weapon. -Classic game concepts -You can choose three different styles of combat. A mage, a dwarf, or a archer who can use sword/shield or two handed sword. The ranger is the best! -Autosave Weaknesses - Your game can freeze at times, but not too frequent. -When some enemies emerge and you try to hit them your sword goes right through them with no damage. -You can't change the splitscreen to horizontal divide, but then again I'm playing on a 32 inch tv so that is probably why It doesn't work well with me. -The graphics are a little low for the game despite its age, but the content more than makes up for it. At least it isn't the other way around like Destiny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I got this game a while back and it is GREAT. I spent so many hours playing it and to be honest it is a challenge. I recommend this to people who are hardcore gamers and like RPG's.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A decent game It's got a decent story, horrible(but easy to master)combat, but it is still a good game. It is still not better than the real lord of the rings story.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tolken Would be Proud The story is so engaging and the combat is amazing. I personally loved this game and I think it deserves a deserves a higher score. For diehard LOTR fans, this is the game for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Couch Coop Game When I first heard this game was coming out, I was really excited. Unfortunately, it got horrible reviews in the 5's and 6's, and that discouraged me from getting it right away. I got the game when the price was lowered and played the whole game with my friend in one weekend. It has the gore that hack'n'slash gamers love and plenty of loot for rpg gamers. This game is a great coop because the 3 classes really compliment each other. Also, all of the equipment is designated to each class, so there's no arguing over loot, except for a few items. I wouldnt recommend playing the game alone, because the ai's can be helpful, but having to deal with 2 of them getting hurt all of the time can get annoying. Don't get too excited about the cameos that appear, because they are overshadowed by the three main characters and really don't do too much. Overall, this is a great game to play split screen with, but don't buy it if you are going to end up playing alone

Rated 4 out of 5 by from super fun I loved playing this game especially online with other people it was very fun but once the story was over you couldn't free roam so it got a little boring replaying the story, but still worth getting because it is fun.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bugs Galore! When I first picked up this game, I was excited. It was difficult to find a good game to play coop with my girlfriend. When we started playing and continued playing into the night we were both satisfied with how great the gameplay and coop was. Then the next day we discovered that all of that hype was just a cover for a pool of unsolved bugs. My character's story progress was saved at Part 1 Chapter 22. Her's was saved at Part 1 Chapter 5. It then went on to say that if she played with me she would receive no achievements and not be able to save. We attempted playing on hers to get her to my (but actually our) point in the game only to find that the game glitches each time and freezes when we try to go into the next area to progress the story. We decided to go back to my save and continue playing anyway. We defeated a really difficult boss and returned to the town (an assumed autosave point) and quit to take a break. Upon returning we discovered we lost our progress and have to kill the boss again. Without an autosaving icon it is impossible to know when it is safe to stop your adventure. These bugs, and many more that can be found in blogs, are sure to induce frustration and disappointment in what could have been a great game. My advice: don't waste your time and money on what will be a huge let down.
