Liked the combat system very similar Batman Arkham which is normally with WB Games. The stealth kills and brutalise kills are extremely violent and satisfying. It has a interesting and creative story and idea with wraiths. Stealth aspect was enjoyable as I liked messing around with the orcs. The nemesis system was a great addition as it gave me a drive to upgrade my weapons and skills to try and eliminate the warchiefs. Each warchief was unique and has their own likes and dislikes which you could use to your advantage upon gaining the intel from hunting the lower ranked orcs. It has great graphics which is always and advantage. I would recommend to any fan of the Batman Arkham series - 9/10
It was a fine game. I didn't always enjoy the fighting system, because it was a bit too much clicking. Besides this, I loved the story, the graphics and the characters. The nemesis system also makes the game more enjoyable, and makes it possible to play the game more than once without getting the same exact experience as the first time.
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor feels like a mix of Assassin's Creed and Batman game, but in Lord of the Rings world. There are easy collectables to find, towers to climb, and a special type of vision to be exploited to find things, what you can't find without this vision. Combat feels strongly inspired by the fighting in Batman games, with Talion surrounded by mobs of enemies as players tap the proper buttons to counter and dodge incoming blows while pulling off 40- and 50-hit combinations. Game have a good enough graphics, but still there's a lack of story.. Anyway i have fun with this one :)
This games mechanics are fantastic, one unique mechanic is chief promotions. This mechanic is used when the player is killed, the orc which killed the player will be promoted to a chief, gaining power, other chiefs will have gotten into fights are other such events which the user can take part in. This mechanic can shift a lot of the power in the game and gives a very nice, immersive feel. The gameplay is fantastic, with excellent free-running which is much smoother and more controllable than Assassin's Creed. The fighting is excellent, relying on the user to use combos to gain attack damage as well as unlocking streak abilities. The downside to this game is its storyline, it feels a little short and it's recommended not to try and focus too excessively on the story missions.
Combat and stealth in this game is very satisfying and only surpassed by the Batman Arkham series. While the main story feels a little light the nemesis system makes this game something special. Every warchief seems to have his own personality and the player will start to get mini-stories within the game with different warchiefs whether it's because he survives a combat with Talion, kills Talion or is manipulated to gain access to his superiors. Unfortunately as most of Talions skills are unlocked the game gets too easy and not dying takes a little fun out of the nemesis system.
