Diamond in the rough

Revenantal | July 17, 2013 | Review of The Lord of the Rings: War in the North

I play a lot of game with my girlfriend and was pleasantly surprised when we tried this one out. With a similar feel (to a certain extent) to Dead Island the game offers a fairly linear story line however the fighting feels very solid. Fighting with any form of weapon, magic, bows, or swords feels very fluid and they blend very well together give you very satisfying kills. However there were some issues that did arise with this game, Lag being a major one. There were a few parts throughout the game I had to play solo as it was too laggy for both of us and we always ended up disconnecting, ignoring the lag however game play was smooth, with minimal glitches. One issue I for see for people planning to venture forth into the North is the game is very boring solo, and becomes of a grind fest then a game.
