このゲームについて

The 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. Snowblind Studios is in the unique position of drawing inspiration from both the literary and film rights to world of Middle-earth, allowing players to 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.

Key Features:

  • Action Meets RPG - 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.
  • Co-op at its Core - 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.
  • 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 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.

Good solid game that I would definitely recommend.

Pros:

- good storyline with lots of lore
- good voice acting
- just enough sidequests to not detract from the story
- skills received a noticeable, but not overpowering bump when leveling them up

Few things that could have been better:

- wish voice acting was same as the movie, but still good
- inventory management was sort of a mess. No good comparison mode when looking at vendor to inventory, too much junk loot and not enough loot you'd want to wear even towards the end
- AI for your companions is not very good, but I imagine a ton of fun to play co-op
- save points are a little strange. i.e. beat the boss, go back to town, interact with a vendor and see save icon after, quit game > log back in and I have to fight the boss again? Strange. I could see this being an issue on the harder difficulties that might take a few times to beat.
- respec should be much cheaper imo - probably figure you'll do it in heroic and legendary
- companions on solo play - I was fortunate enough to read up on this before I started giving good loot to them. Apparently it disappears so you should only trade to another play and never the computer.

I do like that you get to pick up where you left off when playing through the next difficulty level. I'll probably come back and give at least heroic a whirl. Legendary sounds brutal.

War in the North is an action-RPG built with a strong focus on co-op. All of the familiar characteristics of the action-RPG genre are here, from shops and loot to blacksmiths that repair weakened or busted weaponry; as well as some combo-based swordplay.War in the North is all about action, and the action starts when you pick one of the three characters. No, you can’t pick any of the actual LOTR characters. You’re stuck with these relatively generic goofballs, doing relatively generic things in a generic fantasy world populated by generic quest givers. Several builds exist for each character though, and you can even build the wizard in melee combat and kick ♥♥♥ surprisingly. Other than her, you’ve got your typical LOTR ranger and warlord archetypes to play as for sword and bow combat. The control scheme doesn’t really lend that well to a keyboard and mouse, so I highly recommend making the investment for a controller if you don’t have one already. With a completely forgettable character lineup and story that only serves to get in the way or set up the next hub/killing field, it’s been a long time since I ran into a hack and slash that I really never feel like loading up again after putting down.The highlight of the game, as every LOTR game should have a great soundtrack and voice acting to back it up, and this delivers. While the actual context of the story is pretty pathetic, the production values are high enough to keep you listening rather than skipping cutscenes.Games graphics are also rather good. Given sufficient hardware, the game will shine and shimmer even in the bloodiest of fights.While it doesn't reach the heights we wished it would, War in the North is still a solid experience with more than enough content to justify checking it out. Overall 7/10.

Fantastic hack & slash game with great graphics (for 2011 of course), good storyline and highly advanced co-op play. Just play with friends, and you get a lot of fun.

This is a fairly decent action rpg experience, set in the world of Middle Earth.

The environments and characters are what makes this game worth playing in my opinion. There are some locales that will be very familiar to LOTR fans as well as completely new areas, all of which are done fantastically. There are a ton of familiar faces to see and converse with such as Aragorn or Gandalf, and quite a few new characters to get involved with.

Other than that it's a pretty generic experience. Pick your class, fight through a level full of continuous bad guys (orcs, goblins, Uruk Hai, etc.), then a big boss battle at the end of the level. Rinse and repeat. This game should definately be played in co op with some friends to make a far better experience.

All in all it's still a good game especially if your'e a LOTR fan, I would recommend picking it up on sale.

Just started playing throught this with two friends, it's ♥♥♥♥ing awesome.

1. You each have a different role and different gear associated with it
- Champion: Straight up heavy DPS, uses big two handed axes and maces, he can also use 2 handed swords with one hand.
- Ranger: Agile DPS, can dual wield swords/maces/hammers and can use greatswords.
- Lore-Master: Healing and procective magic, she can also use her staff as a melee weapon when needed.

2. ♥♥♥♥ING LOOT IS AWESOME. Each of you get your own seperate loot that covers all 3 classes, so you'll need to take breaks every now and then to give eachother the items for their class and vice versa.

3. Combat is kinda like Dragon Age on a console. You know, the hack and slashy ♥♥♥♥. But it's extremely satisfying for all classes.

The overall feel for the game is kinda like an MMO and Borderlands mixed together, it's really well made and is up to standards even 3 (nearly 4) years later.

If you've got an odd number of friends that you regularly play games with (like myself), I would definitely recommend this to you!

9.5/10

If you own AMD do not buy this game it's basically unplayable once you hit the end of the ♥♥♥♥ing game!

Which is just ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ on chapter 8 Carn Dum you cannot actually advance it's over the game will crash and stutter constantly and unfortunatly this is the end of game for you and if you try and let your friends advance to get past the unpassable zone oh no sorry game prevents you from getting achivements and stops saving of the game so it's pointless playing at this point

If you have Nvidia then awesome get this game it's fun 3 player coop with mates but avoid if you have AMD AT ALL COSTS!

Game crashes over and over again after several hours of gamplay. It is a known bug with ATI video cards and will never be fixed. Buyer beware.

Final level crashes constantly due to rendering issues with video card. Google it is very very common issue. Game is not supported so it will not be fixed. Save you money, because this cool game wont be able to finish.

Although the graphics are a bit outdated, and most of the world textures are of low quality due to the game actually being a console port - the combat is very addictive and fun. The "bleached" out color palette can easily be changed by using sweetFX. The game is stable, didn't crash a single time and works very smooth on maxed out details. I absolutely recommend it!

Too bad most of the map pins can't be accessed and are there just for lore info. But still - you'll get 10-15h from it by just playing through the normal mode. Throw in a couple of friends and you're in for a bundle of fun ^^

It's a good game for fans os The Lord of the Rings. With it you can travel to some places you've always wanted to. It does have some issues while playing by yourself (the companions AI is weak) but with friends it's really cool. So, if you want to know something more about the The Lord of the Rings/ The Hobbit and kill some orcs that's the game for you!

This game at first feels a little shallow, but over time it's true colours emerge. It really feels like a 3d version of Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance 1 and 2, which makes sense as I think some of the same developers were involved. The combat is fairly good and would most likely be a blast playing with 2 other friends (I've only been playing solo at this point). This game is well worth the $5 I paid. I would say it would be worth buying even at $20.

I'm very fussy with the games I spend my time on, and I can say that LOTRWITN has been enjoyable and I look forward to playing through the campaign a few more times at different difficulty levels.

Huge fan of these type Hack and Slash RPG's, If you like the old console games such as Baldurs Gate/Champions of Norrath then this is for you. Great game all round. some bugs i must admit but looking past that all it is a great game. 10/10

9/10

This game is enjoyable to play, as the main aim of the game is to slice orcs. Some people say it gets boring after a while as the whole game is the same (to slice orcs) Which gets true, But i always seem to go back and play it again in a few weeks. The combat is great, and uses a variety of skills (depending if your Man,Elf or Dwarf) to defeat Agandaurs minions. The only other problem i had with this game was it is too short, There are about 8 levels (Including Fornost,Barrow Downs, Ettermoors, Gundabad, Mirkwood, Uglost Lair, Nordinbad and Carn Dum) This roughly takes about 15-25 hours to complete. Of course, you then play it at a harder difficulty afterwards and find new armour,weapons etc. Even though the game is fasirly short I still highly recommend it as it is one of my faviourite games, and is very fun to play.

The story of this game plays neatly alongside the Lord of the Rings and it's 3 episodes. I found it interesting how faithful it was even to The Hobbit before & the Lord of the Rings trilogy in the narrative. You'll see. The graphics are of high quality and gameplay is in 3rd person mode.

In anticipation for Shadows of Mordor which apparently plays between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, this was a decent filler! The effect of their efforts is negligent on the original Fellowship (Frodo and his partners), BUT, the effect of Frodo's efforts is felt by our trio as he destroys the ring!

We have an excuse to emerse ourselves in a Middle-earth game here so WHY NOT! A worthy Lord of the Rings game.

Game on.

How can a game be so mediocre, yet so enjoyable, so... fun? Yes, I'd go with fun. The mic issue can be handled with a virtual in line mic [there's a procedure in the forum on this], get two shmoe-er friends, and boom! Crazy 3 player fun! Feels almost like how D3 should have been in my opinion.

GET IT! GET 2 PEOPLE! PLAYYYYYYYYYY!

also decent graphics and good sound/music for how old it is.

7.5/10
Play time: 16 hours 30 min (main story and most side quests, listening to most conversation)

Pros:
+Good action RPG combat, severing orc limbs is fun
+Lots of well put together LotR story elements/locations for fans to enjoy
+Enough levelling and loot to keep things interesting

Cons:
-Gameplay can probably get repetitive if you play more than 1-2 hours each time
-Combat system and leveling/skill tree isn't that deep for hardcore players
-Fiddly character change system
-A few glitches may crash the game

Game is great for using the Xbox 360 controller and playing on the TV from the couch.
Graphics performance R9 280X, 1080P max settings: 60 FPS (V-sync) all the time except for a few stutters when loading new textures.

If you will enjoy LotR: War in the North depends on how you're going to play the game, and if you're a fan of the LotR world. The game is best played casually a few hours at the time, If you play it that way, and you're a fan, the game will probably keep you entertained all the way through and has a lot going for it when it comes to the story and locations.

If you're not interested in the Lord of the Rings world, and come just for the action RPG, you'll probably find the game lacking, especially if you put 3-4 or more hours in to the game each go, then the game will probably feel quite repetitive.

The game tells a story of three heroes (man, dwarf, elf) indirectly helping the fellowship during the LotR story. You run in to quite a few characters from the books/movies, and visit familiar locations as Bree and Rivendell. The locations in this game generally look great, and all the characters has quite a lot to say, so the story builds up well with lots of background information available if you like to listen to conversation.

The main part of the game has you battling mostly orcs in a third person action RPG style. The combat style doesn't differ much through the game, you can select any of the three characters (but switching between them is only allowed upon clearing a section of the current chapter, or after visiting towns, and is a bit clunky), use a light or heavy attack, ranged attacks and magic/skills. You level up and unlock/improve skills and get better gear/other loot that improve stats, but the gameplay doesn't change that much. You're still hacking/shooting at orcs most of the time.

I really enjoyed the combat, and the levelling/loot was enough to keep me interested all the way through, and combat is fun. Sometimes after getting the enemy HP down enough you get a prompt to use a heavy attack for a limb severing finish that for me never got old. Just as satisfying every time.

The game has some nice boss battles as well, and every chapter has a few events that mixes things up.

At the final chapter, there was a game breaking glitch, for some reason when navigating the tunnels the game got really choppy and crashed when the frame rate got too low. Apparently a common problem, and the solution was to set the graphics to minimum and get through that section with as little on screen as possible (aiming at the floor while moving helped). When out of the tunnels, restart the game and everything is well again.

I enjoyed the game and will do a "New game+" some day.

A good game tainted because lazy devs/programers.

The its good and very enjoyable, but the problem comes with the game... in some parts of the game you can't play at all because the game crashes if have too many effects/particles in the game (reseting the graphics adaptor) and you can only pray to get to the next checkpoint.

If this problem is not fixed in any patch form is not playabe... and seeying no patch incoming this game is a waste even in sales times.

Don't buy it.

This is an ok game. Very interesting to see another side of the LotR universe, but it gets pretty bland honestly. But the reason I can't recommend it is simply because if you own a Radeon card, be prepared for much frustration. The game is so unoptimized for these cards that it becomes practically unplayable. Two whole chapters require workarounds just to make the game playable. If you don't heed this warning and try the game anyways, be prepared for a lot of crashing, blue screen and every other error under the sun.
