Releasing The Lord of the Rings: War in the North this week in Europe may be a bold move on Warner Bros.' part considering most players are expecting another RPG. Not that the two games fall into the same category as War in the North belongs to the hack and slash genre more than anything else. However, there are still RPG elements in Snowblind's new title as the characters' characteristics and gear can be upgraded. It should also be mentioned that up to three players can play the whole adventure, local or online. Here are three homemade videos so you can decide whether or not you might be interested.
Once you get immersed in what you're doing. By the end of it I really saw nothing wrong with a lot Poly Lara running around a realisticly rendered world at all. (1 Hour ago)
It's maintained the realistic proportions and movements of modern Lara. But combined them with an aesthetic that was classic (albiet polygonal) it's weird how you stop noticing those visual diffences (1 Hour ago)
But it's still more recognisably "tomb raider". I played half of rise of tomb raider with the classic polygonal Lara model and that was a good compromise. (1 Hour ago)
@MrWhite: I think there's still a bit of a jarring visual thing between the silicone sex doll proportions of Lara and the realistically realised world she's running around in. (1 Hour ago)
SFV is a very good game. I'm glad Capcom stuck with it despite the rocky start. (1 Hour ago)
