ZeroTolerance Writes: The Lord of the Rings series has seen as many ups and downs as just about any successful movie franchise, when it comes to games. There are some truly excellent titles and, of course, some massively disappointing ones. War in the North is one of the most anticipated for a few reasons. For starters it is being developed by Snowblind Studios, the same guys behind the incredibly awesome Champions of Norrath and Justice League Heroes. The top-down style is sort of their calling card, which is why I was surprised to discover that War in the North is actually a third-person action game with RPG elements.
