GameFront, "Almost no literary work seems as suitable for conversion into a video game as J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. Over the years, we’ve had some great games based on the series, as well as some stinkers. The latest entry into the series is Lord of the Rings: War in the North, the new action RPG from from Snowblind Studios. Snowblind has had success in the this genre before, releasing titles like Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance and Champions of Norrath for the PlayStation 3, but how will they do in Middle Earth?"
