Om dette spillet

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.

HIGHLY recommend if you are:
1. NOT using ATI cards
2. Planning to play it Co-Op with friends that also met #1
3. You will be the Co-Op game host.
3. Don't care about achievements (if you are the client)

STAY Away from this game if you are:
1. Using ATI cards
2. Planning to play Solo
3. You care about achievements and will be the client in a co-op game

If I could sum up this game in one word, that word would be "fine"

The game does everything just fine, but you can find other games that do everything better. The RPG elements are fine, but other games are better. The Fighting is fine, but you can find better elsewhere, The graphics are fine, but... you see what I mean?

Nothing wrong with the game, actually it's.... well, fine... just nothing spectacular

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!

While it certainly isn't the best hack n slash action game you'll ever play, Lord of the Rings: War in the North proved to be a fun game despite its flaws. This game was designed as a multiplayer experience, so you should play with a friend if you can, if not prepare yourself to constant variations is gameplay as you'll have to change characters more often than not. In the end this was not a setback, as each has a slightly different play style so changing characters (ranger, elf, dwarf) proved to be varied and amusing.

This game is first and foremost aimed at Lord of the Rings / Tolkien fans. If you count yourself among those, you'll be satisfied. I played this game as I was reading The Silmarillion again which proved to be a good choice as the story is not focused on the main events at the end of the Third Age but on the fight against the forces of Sauron in the north of Middle Earth. Don't expect Bethesda or Bioware levels of lore in this game, just relax, enjoy the story and focus on what this game does best - combat.

The fights are intense, combos are easy to execute and enemies' limbs fly all over as you chop Orc after Orc. If you want a good hack'n'slash experience, look no further.

Fantastc Game!
9/10

It is one of the only good Lord Of The Rings Games ive actually played and i had loads of fun singleplayer and co-op.

Pros:
Great combat system and it flows very well.
Good storyline and lots of lore.
Nice to be able to switch characters during missions and then not loose out on levels for that character.
Graphics were godd for a 2011 game.
Very fast loading in no waiting at the load screen for up to 5 minuites. It just loads in almost straight away.
Interesting Characts and the option to play each one.
Good ranged weapon combat flows well.
Love being able to upgrade you're stats and skills.
Loved the fact that you could choose you're own path in the final mission.
I liked it that when you completed the game it went onto the next difficulty and kept all you're skills and upgrades and all of your inventory. So it was like carrying on the games but restarting (if you know what i mean) and it felt nice not to have to loot up more and more.


Cons:
Voice actng was not that good and they used the same actor for the two sons of Elrond.
Looting. Although you dont have to loot half of the game is spent looting around the maps if you want to be able to have money or good rare items or stones. Looting for me wasnt so bad but it seemed that f you didnt lott you would end up completing the mission with no health pots, coins and other good weapons and armour.
The amount of missions were lacked. I completed this game in 9 hours without trying to speed run. It just felt to rushed (the storyline) and it was ruined at the end. It could have had missions interlinking with what was happening with frodo and his felowship.
I think they also should have put in a skip all option for dialouge scenes.(when you had to choose what you wanted to say)
I am not sure if it was me and my other friend but we experienced major co-op lag. We would only be able to play for an hour before he lagged out and whenever he joined it just lagged him out again.

But All around This game was great! I have always loved Lord Of The Rings games and this is a definite must for fans like me!
