Very Good

War In The North: a little glitchy, but good

My wife and I love playing co-op games. The game is rather smell in scope, with length of game-play based on multiple (3) play-throughs, but still a good play for a couple of days. However there are some glitches. Once your character has played through an area either in co-op or alone DO NOT replay the final section of that area, in the same play-through! There are sell-points where you can buy, sell, or return to the town you were in last. Return to the town and enter the buy/sell or repair menu at a vendor and let it save. If you try to play the last section it will save in that section and the boss battle intro cinematic will NOT activate (since you have already killed them). This will leave your character 'stuck' in the storyline and the only way to get 'unstuck' is to join another person's game and finish that play-through, so that you progress to the next play-through and restart in Bree with all of your Exp. and gear... Other than that and occasionally having to swap out 1st and 2nd player because "the player who's game you are using is too far ahead, saving your game will be disabled."-(like I said, glitchy) it is a pretty good game.

Decent Game feels Rushed

You never feel awesome due to the lack of balance from the leveling tree. Enemy's are actually pretty tough.
Not that many special abilities. Thoughout the game you smash the X button(attack) and hit the B button to roll/ evade the enemy. If you have a few hours to kill the game is okay it was fun, but I exspected much more from LOTR franchise. Glad i didnt buy when Skrim is almost out!
