Recommended By Curators

"Would be a competent but unremarkable Arkham-style open world game about killing orcs but made special with the Nemesis system and excellent voice work."

Middle-earth Shadow of Mordor is an action packed RPG that has a bunch of lore and content from the loved lord of the ring and hobbit franchise . It is an absolutely awesome game with unreasonably good storyline. The graphics are very next gen with a beautiful landscape that is full of detail, amazing lighting effects and interesting characters both new and old characters to the J.R.R. Tolkien's lore.

The combat is very similar to the Assassins creed franchise and even more to the Batman games. With swift, immersive gameplay that will make every kill feel beautiful but it can be quite challenging when you face more than a dozen enemies at once. With three different weapons, the Sword, Dagger, and Bow. There are plenty of ways to take out you enemies , going silent with a knife or bow or just rushing head long into a pack on Orcs. You can then use your wrath powers to stun enemies and unleash a fury of attacks, or shoot an arrow to teleport to your enemy and take him on one on one.

The game takes place open world of Mordor, in which you are trying to kill off Orcs and their Captains to get to the top of the tree. Killing Captains will give you runes that you can put on your weapons and skill points which can be used to unlock exciting new skills.

If you are a fan of Lord of the Rings or Hobbit franchise and enjoyed the combat from the batman games, then you will love this game from the start to the end, therefore I highly recommend this game for you. Even if you aren't into the franchise of LOTR or The Hobbit, the game is still an amazing game with its appealing graphics, very fun combat and a smooth and beautiful open world.

Really good game. I am really enjoying the fluency between cinematic scenes and the actual gameplay.
The story line is solid and there is always something to do in the land of Mordor, whether it be smashing Uruk's heads together or cutting herbs in Wraith mode to replemish your health.
Amazing game so far. 10/10
Only addition that could be added, is to add Gimli :P

Zugg the Defiler, otherwise known as Zuggy the ♥♥♥♥wit is my current nemesis. I hate him with every fibre of my being. I've shot him in the eye, thrown him in a fire and dropped flies right on his fat head.

I hate that ♥♥♥♥♥.

10/10

Excellent Game, Fun gameplay, Interesting things in the game such as if you die to a normal uruk they will be promoted to captain and you can get revenge for your friends if they have died to someone. It lasts longer than 8 hours just to play not to mention the things you will get caught up in such as finding artifacts and the ithildin. Game that is worth the money.

Having played for hours now, I've been extremely surprised by the quality of Shadow of Mordor. Great story and characters, visuals, environments, etc. What I really love is how much personality the developers lend to the actual Orcs, it's very unique in a game like this. Highly recommended, I forsee Shadow of Mordor going on several top 10 / GOTY lists this year.
