The Lord of the Rings: War in the North review. Classic Game Room presents a CGRundertow review of the Lord of the Rings: War in the North from Snowblind Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive for the PlayStation 3. On the one hand, this is a fairly typical action RPG with hack-and-slash combat, a description that likely cements this game in the bad category for discriminating gamers. But on the other hand, it's Lord of the Rings, you can decapitate goblins and giant talking eagles swoop down and destroy things. So to call the Lord of the Rings: War in the North a bad game wouldn't be fair. We've played bad games, and this is not a bad game. But it's also not a game that's figured out how to make hacking and slashing interesting. Combat stays mindless for the duration and the RPG elements are also thinly applied, so there are clearly some limitations to what this game can achieve. But it's still fun. This video review features video gameplay footage of the Lord of the Rings: War in the North for the PlayStation 3 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.
