When I initially saw the trailers for this game, I wasn't terribly interested. I love the Lord of the Rings, but the game looked repetitive, excessively dark, and perhaps annoyingly complicated. But boy was I wrong. Once I started playing, it didn't take me long to get hooked on this game. The characters are fantastic, the story is intriguing, the graphics are beautiful, and the combat is so satisfying. And the orc captain/warchief hierarchy was much easier to understand and manipulate than I feared it would be. I spent just under 40 hours playing this game and it was one of the first games I ever 100 percented. Definitely one of the best next-gen titles I've experienced so far.
A great game well worth the price!goro3d | June 30, 2015 | See all goro3d's reviews »
Been playing for about 4 months and taking my time doing a lot of stealth and in your face fighting and loving every bit of it! Awesome RPG and worth adding to any rpg collection. It has be a great addition to my rpg collection! Game gets tough but as you build up your character you get stronger as well! I have the game of the year and it well worth the title and a great game to play either hardcore or casual everyone who is a rpg will probably like it :)! it's a continuation of LOTR but takes place after middle earth and the Hobbit.

I love this game but wish it had an easy mode but apparently they thought that would be too easy but oh well. It's a great game in it's own right and I enjoy the blood and gore of it! I give this game a 97% out of 100 cause still has it's bad parts but dosen't stop the gameplay in the least :)!
Engrossing twist on the LOTR universe~!xwa_foxhound | June 4, 2015 | See all xwa_foxhound's reviews »
You can see from the screenshots that it looks great, and everyone loves hunting orcs anyway! What impressed me most however is something completely different - not the gameplay or the visuals, but the bits out of your control... the orcs. While you are running around the game world and killing away, there is a background orc hierarchy system which is constantly changing through duels and the run-on effects of your actions in game. Orcs that kill you level up and gain power, and these orcs later come hunting you down with their warbands. What I also love is that they hurl abuse at you when they meet you in game before charging in. Each one has different strengths and fighting styles, and just hitting them with a sword doesn't always work! Equally fun is the way you can gain information and intelligence from orcs, slaves, and random documents about these orcs, including weaknesses, to help plan your assault on them. This is truly a game worth playing if you are either an LOTR fan, or an Assassins Creed / Batman Arkham fan!
Great game, not a masterpiecesycomantis1991 | May 28, 2015 | See all sycomantis1991's reviews »
This game is really good and really engrossing. It looks absolutely spectacular and it controls really well. The story is pretty good, but the Nemesis System is what makes this game really grab hold of you. Fighting off the allies of or the reanimated enemy you killed a while ago, much stronger than before, is extra thrilling and makes the game an endless stream of one-up-manship. The combat is pretty good but nothing special. it plays like Arkham with swords but aside from a few powers, it's very simplistic.
