John from AAG writes: "Licensed games are an iffy thing in our fine industry. Some are good (Arkham Asylum anyone?), while most are utter garbage (essentially ever movie tie-in ever made…) and not worthy of the plastic they come boxed in. Lord of the Rings is one the luckier players in this game, with quite a few decent titles under its belt. But rather obviously, the potentially best kind of game able to be made from the series would be an Action-RPG, but any attempt at something resembling this has never ended well for the universe, so does War in the North have what it takes to finally deliver the Lord of the Rings game we’ve wanted for years?"
