The nemesis system single-handedly carried this game to success. It was something that never had quite been done before, and made the world feel alive. The combat is satisfying and fun, but can get quite easy on lower difficulties. Definitely worth checking out, especially when it's been on sale for as low as 5 eur many times.
Despite having some shortcomings in storytelling and gameplay, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is one of the most awesome and attractive titles of the video games in recent years, and it can even be considered the best game made from the world of Lord of the Rings. You can complete Shadow of Mordor for about 20 hours. But to complete all of the sub-missions and get all of its items, you have to go much more than these in the Middle earth.
This game has a lot of good things in it, specially if you are a Lord of the Rings fan. Having the story about Middle Earth being expanded felt good. The combat in the game is very similar to the Batman games where it locks to the animation at the press of the button, which I liked, although sometimes it felt to easy, just taking fights against 20 orcs at a time felt awesome but since the block prompt appears every time you get attacked it just takes some of the accomplishment in winning those fights. Which to some might not matter, since a big part of the game is constant fight against the Captains etc (Nemesis system) and they do bump the difficulty (sometimes). Overall it's a great game, apart from the difficulty level not being the best for me and some bugs (getting inside walls and having to quick travel out). I strongly recommend it and can't wait for the sequel
The gameplay feels a lot like Assassin Creed with a bit of Batman thrown in. But the combat, which is the most important part of this game is done very well. It feels very satisfying to play and kill Uruks. Controls are solid, and at least with a keyboard and mouse I didn't have to change anything from the default controls. The game beginning is very engaging, but it slows down soon afterwards especially once you get stuck in the side quests, which are not very fun. The main story though is certainly fun, and towards the end it gets even better. The voice acting is top notch, especially for the Bright Lord. The cinematic are done very well and fit well with the game. The game maps are quite small so you will be doing a lot of fighting in the same areas. So it might get a bit repetitive after a few hours into the map. However, the game is paced very well and the frequent unlocks will introduce new concepts and keep things fresh somewhat throughout the game. I get 144+ FPS on my GTX 1080 and i7 4790K, so the game is very well optimised for PC. I think its important to note that from start to end I did not see a single bug or glitch anywhere. Only in the DLC, I saw a minor sound glitch that fixed itself in about 5 seconds. It took me about 30 hours to get everything 100% in the DLC and the main game. Considering I got this at a sale, I feel that I definately got my money's worth. I would highly rate this game even at full price. At the discount it goes to, its almost a steal.
I completed most of the sub missions and collectibles in the game. Much as I can say, this is a very good game. And I definitely recommend this game especially if you love the LOTR Series. The only thing that I hate about this game is the ending part. Overall 9/10..
