Compare the War in the North game with what we have seen from the Hobbit movie(s) Can't Post

I was just viewing some 'old' Xbox360 War in the North videos and looking back it struck me how a number of items where 'borrowed' straight in the movie from this game.
Looks like there are at least a few people in the Hobbit movie departments that have played or seen this game.

Check out radagast in the next clip and take a look at his staff:

Then check out the dragon Urgost (espescially his eyes) and some details on his head like thes spikes that we have seen in the pictures from the official DOS trailer (the imaged enhanced/lightened pictures that is):

Makes me wonder if more of the wyrm Urgost's performance will be found in Smaug and the atmosphere in Erebor will be borrowed from this game (the way the heroes enter the lair).

Maybe some of you have already found more things borrowed from this game in AUJ or DOS (as far as we can derive from trailers and behind the scenes footage).

I don't think they have borrowed anything from the game [In reply to] Can't Post

The similarities are very... how to put it... superficial.

I noticed a few similarities, but I don't think they directly took inspiration from the game. I was just playing through it today again, and I did notice Radagast's staff (and behavior) is reminiscent of AUJ.
