The Lord of the Rings: War in the North
A War Worth Avoiding
on June 29, 2012 at 12:18 AM
Gamers have seen their fair share of the Lord of the Rings. The lore of J.R.R. Tolkien's fantasy world spans almost every video game genre, from real-time strategy to MMOs. So when it was announced that Snowblind Studios, the developer behind Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance and Champions of Norrath...
Lord of the Rings: War in the North PS3 Review
on January 06, 2012 at 07:15 PM
Since Peter Jackson gave the Lord of the Rings a long overdue revival with his film trilogy, more games have been set in Middle-earth than most gamers care to remember. There have been action games, rpgs, action-rpgs, strategy games and of course MMOs to bind them all together. To say these games have...

The main problem with the Game Informer review is JOE JUBA. He habitually reviews games with a slant towards his very subjective personal biases. Rather than remaining objective and discussing the merits and faults of the game and whether it successfully accomplishes what it sets out to do, Joe reviews...
Lord of the Rings: War in the North - A Great Concept Toppled to the Ground
on November 05, 2011 at 12:53 PM
Lord of the Rings: War in the North is one of those sad cases of wasted potential that you can enjoy for a time. From the gameplay to the developers, Snowblind Studios, to the great story it tells, War in the North rises moderately high just to be dropped back down by its many flaws. Some of you may...
A winner without fans
on November 04, 2011 at 05:45 PM
From the opening to the final boss my only complaint is the length and that's only because I could have played this game forever. Please take a look, regardless of GI's review. I have placed a lot of faith in GI until lately where they have really missed the mark on more than a few games reviews...
Had higher hopes but can't comlain

I played for about 2 hours last night and while I have many small issues with the game, I can't say it's bad. Enemy AI and Ally AI are both admirable for the gameplay. Controll during combat is much better than I expected. A few things seem out of place with the interface though. Changing between...
One Step Forward, One Step Back
on November 01, 2011 at 10:28 PM
Let me be the first to say, I am a total Lord of the Rings nerd. From the strategy of tabletop games to the epic trilogy Jackson conjured up, Lord of the Rings captures the raw essence of high fantasy. Snowblind's efforts are welcoming. The darker, much more mature direction the game follows is a...
Not too bad
on November 01, 2011 at 07:25 PM
Well, this is a pretty straight forward hack and slash indeed. Not anything too different other than the whole LOTR spin on it (which is why i give it a better rating as a LOTR fan). And as a LOTR fan, im not disappointed. Why? Its a new LOTR game to play, it fills enough time between now and the release...

GameInformer, I would really love an explanation for your incompetence. Seeing how on metacritic you are the only one who gave it below a 70. Right now the Metacritic score for the critics is only 70. Do you know whos fault that is? You my friend. I used to trust you and laugh at games with bad reviews...
I don't really know yet

I just picked this up. Played the first 30 mins of it(Just about 30 mins) and I say it's fun, but every game has it's faults and nasty bugs. So I'd give it a 7.5.
