With The Lord of the Rings: War in the North now in stores, you may be wondering where the demo is. Turns out, if you want to give Snowblind's action-RPG a play, you'll need to turn to cloud gaming service OnLive, which has an exclusive trial.

Playable on the US and UK services, the trial lets you play 30 minutes from the start of the game.

Unfortunately, there's no console or standalone demo for now. However, as OnLive runs the game remotely then streams it back to you, even if there's no way your PC could run the actual game, you can at least get a taste of it through OnLive.

War in the North launched for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 yesterday in North America. The mainland European launch is on November 9, while the UK release is not until November 25.

        Not missing much. It feels like another licensed cash grab, with the features half-baked. It could be decent, if you're just looking for some co-opery with friends, but there are probably better games for that.

        This is, of course, just one person's opinion. :)

          Yeah, seemed okay but a bit mindless. OnLives crap visuals didn't really help me make a purchasing decision about the Steam version, either.

      Was really hoping to try a steam demo to see whether or not to buy. Thanks for saving me money!
