Got it, played it and finished it before diving into Skyrim. Nice warm up for Skyrim and it really gets you into LOTRs world. Played as a single player.

I actually tried this demo and was really more impressed than I expected. I will be looking to play though in co-op soon while I wait for Skyrim to get patched a bit more . Is anyone else playing it?

I plan to get this some time soon on the 360 for myself and my lady to play together. Dark Alliance by the same studio was just ridiculous fun on co-op so our expectations for WITN are high!

Well, we ordered our 360 copy last night. I'll post impressions when it arrives and we have a session!

It's a good game and I finished it in 21 hours and it was really faithful to the LoTR's world. On Skyrim, I am 127 hours in and not even close to finishing the huge monster!!

I don't have time to post full impressions right now, but I have to say that the lady and I are very impressed! It kind of has the old Dark Alliance vibe even though the viewpoint is completely different. But lots of stuff to kill, lots of stuff to break, lots for the loot whores amongst us. Marvellous!

Only two minor gripes really: Firstly it's easy not to notice when a group of enemies approach you from behind, and secondly it's not always obvious when you have to just kill everyone you see, or when you have to achieve some objective. When it's the latter, we have spent ages just killing wave after wave before it clicks.
