No gameplay is footage is shown, but the game comes up in a conversation between the characters Alex and Stine.

Each character can be played as a range fighter or a melee fighter, or a combination of the two. One of the three predefined characters is selected at the start of the game.

While it certainly doesn't raise the bar for co-op dungeon crawlers it was better than Hunted: Demon's Forge. Some time later, Isildur was attacked and killed by a band of orcs, and the Ring was lost in the river Anduin for over two thousand years. Meanwhile, during the Third Age, a still weakened Sauron covertly established a stronghold at Dol Guldur. Fight through the brutal realities of the war on all fronts that were brought to life in the lore. The gameplay largely revolves around fighting creatures.
The game features three playable characters; Eradan a Ranger , Farin a Dwarf and Andriel an Elf. As soon as he put it on, the elves became aware of his ruse, removing and hiding their Three Rings, which Celebrimbor had forged without Sauron's aid. Gameplay War in the North is an action role-playing hack and slash game played from a third-person perspective.

It's not a bad game.
If you're looking for a game where the mechanics make no sense and a frustrating player experience, then this is exactly what you're looking for. It's very fun and has at least 3 replays. Battles, looting, magic, and everything else you'd expect from Middle Earth. The survival of your group and all of Middle-earth depends upon your uniquely skilled heroes working together. Eradan also has access to some stealth abilities where he can sneak up on enemies. Of the combat system he wrote «there isn't anything especially innovative about it, but it's all solid.
I disagree with the scores this game is receiving. That means you'll spend a bit of time playing as the stock character models before you're ever given the option to customize your look. Taking the form of wizards, they were led by Saruman. Frodo, and his friends, Samwise Gamgee, Peregrin «Pippin» Took and Meriadoc «Merry» Brandybuck managed to escape the Shire and head towards Bree.

The story simply takes a back seat to the real enjoyment in the game which is mowing down enemies. Graphics are pretty good, especially the character models. I think they main problem with the game is threefold.
Frodo, Gandalf, Aragorn, and the rest of the fellowship get all the glory, but without the brave struggles of so many others, they never could have succeeded on their vital errand. Either way, you will spend your time in War in the North chopping orcs into several pieces and watching their black blood stain the landscape. At the end of the day, gamers who pick up War in the North will enjoy the online and offline co-op gameplay. It's a shame that snowblind is basically gone now and might not ever come back to make another game that truly appreciates coop hack and slash type games. They sound adequate, but I would have liked to have heard far more in-game chatter from the characters in the game. New weapons can be purchased and there are other in-game collectibles that are enjoyable elements to a game that without them would be very average.

Men proved less resilient, and the nine kings given the Rings become the nine Ring-wraiths, or Nazgûl, led by the Witch-king of Angmar. His special ability allows him to find the tracks of other Rangers and follow them to secret stashes of items and weapons. » Once normal has been defeated, «Heroic» mode is unlocked. When the player first plays the game, they can play on either «easy» or «normal. The dwarves proved relatively immune to the powers of the Rings, acquiring only a greed for gold, and becoming unconcerned with events in the wider world. Most Dungeon Crawlers I say most because Dark Souls did a top notch job seem to have critisism for having little to no variety, this game is the same.
