Lord of the Rings: War in the North

What We Expected: Champions of Norrath meets The Lord of the Rings? Now that’s what we envisioned. All the trailers we watched for this thing made us thirst for some co-op orc torture. Three new characters, three styles of mass beast beatings and three players all enjoying the fun are all we could dream about. The “Mature” rating was just the icing on the cake…

What We Got Instead: The blandest thing to enter our disc drive since…well, name another other fantasy-themed hack and slasher. A non-existent plot, characters that embodied paint drying and several technical issues plagued this game. We put our trust into you, Snowblind. THIS GAME WAS SUPPOSED TO BE OUR PRECIOUS!
