Lord of the Rings: War In The North
The Lord of the Rings: War in the North is an action role playing game: quite typical a genre for a Lord of the Rings adaptation. The tribute to John Ronald Reuel Tolkien’s best trilogy was created by the Snowbling studio, known for amazing Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance and Champions of Norath. Thus, the studio did have a lot of experience with hack and slash games: did they manage to apply it to this project? Taking place at the same time that the event from the Lord of the Rings, the game’s story is a great treat for the fans of the book.
Here, the player will have to fight the powers of darkness just like the well-known heroes. However, he will play a different role, engaging himself in a military campaign against the forces of Sauron in the northern regions of Middleearth. You character can be either an elf, a human or a dwarf, with each race having different special abilities, for example dwarves are at ease in dungeons, being able to see magical runes and secret passages. You can also choose one of three classes: a wizard, a rogue and a warrior. The rogues can turn invisible and attack from under cover. The warriors make the enemies focus on them, saving their weaker companions from dangerous encounters, and the wizards are in possession of powerful offensive spells connected to the elements of ice and fire. They can also cast buffs like a protective shield and heal their companions.
The most fun part of the game are all the abilities we receive when our characters get more and more experienced. During the game we gather items and talk to NPCs. The system of conversation is identical to that from Mass Effect and influences the world and the availability of certain side quests. We will see many characters that were not originally planned by Tolkien, but the producer of the Lord of the Rings movies helped in their development, so they might be believe to be a part of the canon.
