This is a game that came out completely out of the left field - barely anyone expected much from this game, even though it was from creators of stellar games like FEAR and Condemned, and review embargo didn't help this game at all. It's a shame, because it's really good, at times even great game. Graphics are wonderful, music and sound leave nothing to complain about. Gameplay is completely awesome and if you enjoyed Batman Arkham series, you will feel at home and fall in love with this game. It's fluid, little challenging and you really feel in power thanks to responsive controls. Nemesis system is really great idea and it is little sad that system this great feels underused and little like wasted potential, because that's pretty much your endgame, which after beating the game (completing everything takes around 30 hours) there is not much to do other than collecting stuff for small challenges that give you nothing. Another thing that sucks a little is a story, which is basic, bare-bones and half-baked, another wasted potential of the huge Tolkien universe. Gollum parts are a game killer because those are boring. Also, the variety of enemies is incredibly small. On PC the game works great and optimisation job Monolith put into this game is admirable. While the main story feels short, falls flat and the ending sucks hard (with the obvious setup for the sequel, that is already confirmed), I still recommend this game for how awesome the gameplay is. If you enjoyed Arkham series, you won't be disappointed. Just don't expect awesome book-tier story.
Middle-Earth. Shadow of Mordor is a very open world adventure genre game. The game is developed by Monolith Productions. The overall story of the game is slotted in between the story line of The Hobbit and The Lord of The Rings which some of my all time favourite movies. The Player plays the main protagonist known as Talion who is a ranger that was killed early in the story by the Black Hand of Sauron. The spirit of Talion merges with a wraith and the player gains unspeakable powers to make their way through endless hours of entertaining quests. I would recommend this game to anyone that enjoys a long story, someone that is trying to get in to this type of genre or simply just loves the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings series.
Podria haber sido mejor? si Lo manejaron de forma bastante lineal para todas las misiones, a pesar de una muy buena historia. Pero con todas las skills que hay para disfrutar y graficos muy buenos, casi que la linealidad pasa desapercibida. Pero si, podria haber sido mucho mejor. Es un juego que en un fin de semana se termina.
Shadow of Mordor has been the game that I have been waiting for for years. In my old game collection I had Lord of the Rings: War in the North, Battle for Middle Earth II and Conquest. I am a Lord of the Rings fan for almost a decade and after War in the North I was excitedly waiting for a new game. In general it is very well portrayed with a good intro and with good features such as showing battery level. The game plot is very linear but it keeps interesting with the 'history lessons'. Due to the linear story replaying the story is not really worth to do, unless you are a big fan like me. The other gamemodes, 2 of which require you to buy DLC, are probably worth digging into (I don't have those DLC). The free ones are objective where you have to kill a certain amount of warchiefs and captians. Certain goals give you bonus score and the amount of score is posted on an online leaderboard. Gives a little competitive feeling but it wasn't a necessity. The stealth in this game is almost the same from assassins creed, which makes sense because it is published by Ubisoft.
Shadow of Mordor is basically assassin's creed + batman Arkham series games put together in the Lord of the Rings universe. That being said, the nemesis system made the game feel unique. The gameplay is amazing, but the story is a bit repetitive by the end.
