The Lord of the Rings: War in the North is a co-op Action RPG, from the developers of Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance, that immerses you and your friends in a brutal new chapter in the War of the Ring. Set in Middle-earth during the time of the War of the Ring, but separate from its events, War in the North is inspired by both the Lord of the Rings books and movies allowing players to draw their swords, notch their axes, bend their bows and raise their staffs against 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun, simple game This game is good for getting people started in the RPG genre: it has a simple upgrade system, it's easy to get awesome gear, there are a few side missions per hub location (which kinda teach you to talk to people lol), and the dialogue selection is basic but relatively engaging. I played this a ton with my father and we had a blast with it; the combat can get repetitive, and there are only 3 or 4 enemy types that actually play differently, but overall this is a fun game to just mindlessly run around in. One drawback is that if you play with two people on splitscreen, the second person's save would get corrupt if he hadn't advanced as far into the story as player 1. Also, the campaign is kinda short. You can play online together in a private session, but my father and I never delved into that much so I can't say whether the quality of that is good or not. Overall, for 20-15 bucks, this is a good buy if you're looking for something light and fun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The game have a good feeling to it The game have good soundtrack, good characters, but repedative combat. It feels like a rpg should feel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like an uncomplicated Diablo.... I was looking for a multiplayer game (As my dad and I were hanging out for the weekend gaming) and I had just finished Spyro:Dawn of the Dragon and wanted something more in-depth, rpg, and would satisfy my need for 'scavenging'. This game is like Skyrim, minus the fact that you can finish it and less freedom and that you can play with friends, honestly. Similar to Diablo in how you play and how it takes you through. I love how multiplayer is set up, you have your OWN screen and each party can do their own thing without being dragged behind by the other players' needs, etc. You can explore, everything on your own, trade with each other, and assist each other in collecting various items or armor sets. The secrets each player has to find throughout the game, awesome. Elf,Dunedain,Dwarf are the choices, and the elf is amazing to play, and while the dwarf has the most secrets (and sometimes his secrets helps the other players find theirs), he was our least favorite to play. I also felt they were skimpy on the amount of quests, but it is fun how more open up/you can do more once you get to Champoin level. Pick up all the armor/weapons you want, you will never run out of room as each has its own inventory, but the miscellaneous inventory constantly filled up, and I wish they'd made a separate one for potions. Other than low on quests and being a little unhelpful on "imbuing" gems information and what items are useless (I can't tell you how long I carried around sapphires and other useless rocks, just hoping) it was an AMAZING game, and I'm looking forward to buying the rest, and will happily spend the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun, not very buggy, good music score too. This game is a LOT of fun. It actually has a little role-playing, not much, but a little. The music I thought was pretty good. The graphics are terrible though. This game is also pretty much only fun with friends. It's a good game, but it has poor lasting appeal if you have no one to play with. It's not very buggy either which is very hard to get with action, rpg games. The core fighting is nice, you are given plenty of skill choices and abilities. The combat isn't ever slow paced, very action packed etc. Keeps a guy on the end of his seat.
