Snowblind has always had a solid pedigree of top-notch action RPGs, and War in the North can be recognized as another solid piece of craftsmanship. Top notch art direction with great set pieces, beautiful sound design, intense combat situations, and plenty of hours of gameplay (including a New Game + feature that constitutes higher difficulty levels) amalgamate into a fun piece of work well worth experiencing, even if the game has a habit of dragging on a little too long and the combat can get monotonous.

Snowblind Studios delivers an experience that will satisfy even the staunchest Tolkien purist, and playing through the new story with your friends is fun even though the action and UI is not as impressive as the lore

If only the single-player wasn’t so easy, the story was so uninvolved, the characters so frickin’ dull and the gameplay didn’t get predictable halfway through. Nevertheless it’s a comfortable Action RPG that makes up for its shortcomings with addictive fun, cool three-player co-op and a goddamned giant talking eagle. Just push a few boundaries and hire a scriptwriter next time Snowblind, please.
