Riguardo questo gioco

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.

Punti di forza:
  • Fantastico giocato in co-op
  • Graficamente discreto
  • Ottimo sonoro, musiche fantastiche

Steam mi domanda: Consiglieresti questo gioco?
Risposta? Dipende da come lo giocate.

Giocato in co-op, questo action rpg (molto blanda a dire il vero la parte gdr) permette di far passare una decina di ore in leggerezza con un titolo non troppo impegnativo per quanto riguarda le meccaniche, sia per la trama molto semplice.

Giocato in solitario, diventa quasi un incubo. Far salire i tre personaggi non è facile come potrebbe sembrare: il personaggio controllato fino a quel momento è l'unico che può incrementare le abilità durante la partita in corso. Per poter aumentare quelle degli altri bisogna aspettare di poter switchare sugli altri personaggi.. purtroppo il momento migliore è quando si visita un campo o un punto di sosta per rifornirsi di armi e armature. Cosa assolutamente IDIOTA, bisogna scegliere un personaggio, entrare in partita, comprare nuove armi, ripararle magari, aumentare il livello, aspettare il salvataggio automatico, uscire e selezionare il nuovo personaggio.. e ripetere tutta la trafila. Orribile.

La trama oltretutto ripercorre una strada parallela a quella dell'hobbit, con delle spruzzate di fan service gratuito durante la parte centrale del gioco, che onestamente ho trovato noiose. Ah, trama telefonatissima, bisogna dirlo.

Il gioco comunque è nato principalmente su console, il porting su pc è tutt'altro che buono: una scarsa lista di risoluzioni senza possibilità di personalizzarle, un fastidiosissimo errore ad un certo punto dell'avventura con la nebbia, ho dovuto giocarlo in finestra, altrimenti fullscreen dava problemi. Crash random senza evidente motivo.

Il gameplay almeno è sufficiente, con una buona dose di mosse e abilità uniche per ogni personaggio, ma che si scontra con un sistema di looting per giocatori lobotomizzati (passi azzuri che guidano al tesoro? davvero..?), e i famigerati e stupendi muri invisibili, che ti fanno venire voglia di cambiare gioco e puntare su qualcosa di meno guidato.

Arrivato a questo punto uno potrebbe domandarsi se forse non ho sbagliato a cliccare su SI: no, semplicemente in cooperativa è divertente, e si possono passare ore in spensieratezza a patto di aver pagato questo gioco a bassisimo prezzo. Onestamente non vale più di 5€.

Gioco molto attivo e annoia poco, storia tutto sommato decente e meccanica di personalizzazione del personaggio ben fatta. Oltre ciò vanta una grafica rispettabile e una traduzione italiana completa.
L'unica pecca sono solo qualche glitch grafico di poco conto.

Sarebbe un bel gioco, da fare in cooperativa con altre due persone(come ho fatto io)...
MA
-Continua a crashare
-"Impossibile stabilire una connessione con l'host"
-Chat vocale compresa nel gioco, NON disattivabile(Una baggianata epica)
-Bug incomprensibili

E nonostante tutto questo gli devo dare una sufficienza, seppur tirata. Mi ha intrattenuto.

Questo gioco tecnicamente è buono non spettacolare ma a differenza di altri giochi dello stesso genere.
è più che discreto in ogni comparto:grafico,sonoro,longevità,la possibilità di fare coop.
Qualitativamente non è il top ma sopperisce a queste mancanze con un ritmo di gioco frenetico e difficilmente ripetitivo se non alla fine.
Voglio il 2!

Ottimo racconto molto fedele al classico ma da un originale punto di vista, con grande cura per i dettagli, un doppiaggio veramente ben fatto, un gameplay fantastico e nel complesso ho trovato solo 2 pecche quali la difficoltà calibrata in modo approssimativo e i tre protagonisti minimamente non carismatici

Starting a new branch of JRR Tolkein's "Lord of The Rings" series, this quest based game plunges the player into Middle Earth as either a human (Eradan), elf (Andriel) or dwarf (Farin) to fight against the dark lord Agandaur in the North providing the fellowship with time to destroy the ring. This game was a personal favorite of mine. You battle through the North, accompanied with loyal friends, on a variety of dificulties with boss battles at the end of each level providing a harder challenge each time. On completion of the game you can restart to where it all begins with all your gear and complete it on a higher difficulty. The game also has multiplayer for those missions you need help with. Again this game is a personal favorite and I HIGHLY recommend it as a game easy to spend multiple hours on with an enjoyable gameplay and ending.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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 ^^

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.

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.

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!

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
