GameShark - Are you itching to hear every single line of dialog this game has to offer? Are you going to "squee" at the chance to chat with Bilbo Baggins and run around in Rivendell? Then this might be the game for you, even more so if you have a friend or two that feel the same way. Here's the thing: War in the North can't really stand on its gameplay alone, it relies heavily on the players being serious LOTR fans. If this was 'Generic Fantasy Title: War in the North' it would probably be dead in the water. Don't misunderstand though, this isn't some lazy cash-in on a franchise, it is a Lord of the Rings game through and through.
