We have been playing the hell out of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor lately. This game has been keeping us up at night as we slay one orc after the other. Here are five good reasons why we absolutely love Shadow of Mordor.
1. The combat system
The combat system in Shadow of Mordor is inspired by that of the Batman games. It's all about getting into a good fighting rhythm, using both regular and counter-attacks to improve your combo multiplier. It's a super fun system that makes it easy for you to take on large groups of enemies.
2. It's beautiful
Shadow of Mordor takes place in Mordor and it looks beautiful. The weather effects are very impressive and the whole place just oozes that awesome Lord of the Rings vibe. The long draw distance makes it easy to plan your attacks which gives you a good strategic advantage.
3. Epic gore
Shadow of Mordor has some great gore, something we sort of missed in the movies. We can't get enough of lobbing the heads of orcs and brutalizing enemies with our dagger. Slicing and dicing your way through orcs and uruks feels great and the wraith abilities such as your bow and shadow strike are also extremely badass.
4. Fun sandbox
The sandbox of Shadow of Mordor is so much fun to play in thanks to all the cool stuff the developers have put into it. You can cause some serious chaos by shootings explosives or dropping a fly nest on the ground. It's also awesome to lure Caragors and Graugs into enemy bases.
5. The Nemesis system
A unique feature of Shadow of Mordor is the Nemesis system. You have to hunt down enemy captains and war chiefs who are protected by lesser minions that all roam freely in the open world. What makes it awesome is the fact that they remember previous encounters and also fight each other. Lots of games say their enemies adapt to your actions but this time it's actually true!

Sod it is 10/10.
Made me want to watch LOTR again.
im i the only one who doesnt like arkhams combat system?? it just feels ridiculously overpowered.. i think here and in some other games works because the protagonist is superhuman , like the captain america game XD and in the spiderman movie games(which was the spiderman2 for gamecube the first time i find out about that combat system)
This game, by itself, is not outstanding. It is the stream of annoyances that have plagued enemies in most other combat games that makes this one a sort of protest/declaration to stop the torture, to form change by adapting to new ideas. "We will acknowledge these improvements no matter how small," in the perspective that it is better to try. Annoyances such as a million HP; spawning of armies of disposable, forgettable enemies; corrodor environment limitations to creative strategy; and an undeniable mound hill of others.
I loved it for a weekend at least. Doesn't have much replay value and the main story is kinda meh. I loved the combat and nemesis systems. I only wish there were more interesting stuff to play for, besides the tiny main story, than those ghastly achievements every fucking game on the planet is all about nowadays...
+Sxrillez I sometimes let myself get killed by a grunt, turn him into a captain if he looks cool enough (usually the berserkers) then have him kill me twice so hes my nemesis.
I had a guy like that come back from teh dead twice once. His face was all wrapped in bandages after being cut up after already being burned to fuck. I refused to kill him after that and ended up having him as a warchief with 4 level20 captains as bodyguards. Only when he was fully decked out, death threated, warchiefed, bodyguared out the ass, did i finally take him out. Probobly the best battle ive had in the game.
however, if you try playing the game on 360 the graphics (to be honest) suck! Many times- the graphics are either slow to load or don't load (completely) at all! not to mention there is a long ass loading screen between every cut seen. I am TOTALY in love with the game and play it constantly. the game is amazing and i love every aspect of it! However it IS worth noting that playing it on 360 has HUGE flaws that people should expect because you CANNOT fairly compare it to the same game on other platforms. I know many people might not agree with these statements or might feel outraged by someone badmouthing such an amazing fun game, but rest assured I "AM" a huge fan of the game BUT on last gen systems the game has many flaws and is still in DESPERATE (!!!!) need of patches.
5 reasons to don't buy this game, is the worst game that I've played on ps4
1.- fights are all equals and boring press square 10000 times and sometimes triangle over and over and over and when you've got your sword blue execute...
2.- the main missions, the whole story of the game last 1:50 I finished the game without 2dary missions
3.- the missions are same shit but with another the smell... kill 10 orcs 5, 15, 20... stealthy, with executions, with arrows etc... the same over and over
4.- tallion is so OP you can kill and kill orcs without any challenge that's pretty boring to me, even when you ride a caragor pffff just kill them all
5.- the world is too small
those were the main reasons, but I really think that game can't be an AAA+ game and have the same value as the last of us or any other AAA+ game, it really doesn't worth, here I leave more reasons (very personal thoughts)
1.- where is the magic? is supposed to be a middle earth enviroment, where is fire? water? ice? wizards necromancers? magic elemnts
2.- just 3 differents enemies? are you really kidding me? orcs, caragors, and graugs, there's 5 differents orcs I think, shielded orcs, archers, spear orcs and normal, and the bosses I think all the same...
3.- there's no challenge playing this game as I said just kill them all without any difficulty
4.- I hate the fighting system is so boring, I'm used to DMC and god of war, in when you have challenge trying to avoid the hits, if you are losing the battle you can even flee, when you go to any stronghold just gather all the orcs nearby fire and shoot an arrow, all of them will die is that fun? I mean that easy, boring
I'm not a troll, is just that this game disappointed me too much
5 reasons not to like you comment.
1.) You have horrible grammar.
2.) You have horrible punctuation.
3.) You have horrible capitalization.
4.) Comprehension, man, I can barely read your comment.
5.) Shadow of Mordor isn't the best game ever made, but it's an okay game, and worth it's cost.
I'm not a LOTR fan at all really, but this game is so annoyingly great that I can't stop playing it. I hate how every time you die the enemies get stronger because when you die by a war chief you get so angry for revenge that you just go to fight to your death again, but that is a brilliant system in this game.
I love this game ! Spent like 20+ hrs already whenever I have free time to play. It has JUST enough of every elements to make it diversed, and the nemesis system works naturally without forcing you to do anything. It almost shapes itself with your play styles. And the price is not bad £29.99 with discount from GMG.
there only easy when you play the game properly such as attacking bosses according to their weakness or stealth killing mobs before countering the boss etc. ofcourse you could turn up the difficulty if you wanted concidering thats why the difficulty system is in games.
This game was nothing special. It was overhyped just like every other game of this year. The only hyped games that weren't overhyped were Dark souls 2 and mario kart 8 and they were both fucking awesome. Also far cry 4 and Advanced warfare are coming out people. So i recommend you avoid this game. However. I do recommend dark souls 2 and Valiant hearts or wait for either far cry 4 and Advanced Warfare.
EDIT: Ok wow advanced warfare and far cry 4 were both also overhyped and disappointing. Advanced warfare was alright though. But my god far cry 4 was so shit. Also borderlands the pre-sequel also sucked big time. BTW valiant hearts was an admirable failure of a game and it was not good at all.
+Promethean Knight The 'mericans are so freaking SMAAAAART. They needed much more time that any other nation to get civilised and not use spears and swords. I am sure americans are smartest people in the galaxy:)
Had fun with it for awhile. Got boring after 5 hours of the same shit, and Branding enemies doesn't start until you're halfway done with it. Dumb.
Story was also pretty stupid compared to the Middle Earth sagas.
Best game of the last 2 years without a doubt. Didn't see any hype for this so didn't really know what to expect but I'm absolutely stunned by the quality of this game. I'd cleared the first map of collectables pretty much before starting the first mission because I didn't even know I wasn't doing the first mission killing all the orcs etc for like a day. It was just too fun hunting them down. I also created some legendary enemies via dying and you can't just let that shit go :D
I'm moving through it at pace now though xD
I don't like that this is a LotR game cause it's kinda dumb in that comparison; however, as a free standing non-LotR game it's pretty good. I do think it is kind of a shit on Tolkein's stories, but whateves.
that benchmark is bs i got an avarege of 91fps on high in 1440p then i go to the place where they made the benchmark and it drops under 20 fps only in that place where the benchmark is made the rest of the game is Always above 50-60fps
No for beginners like my self the enemy is completely OP nd I still can't get used to fighting 30 enemies at once, nd wen u r about to die that counter action thing goes way to fast, I hav been playing this game since it came out nd it is still to difficult for me -,- but other then that I love this game hahaha it is a love hate relationship
Hey I'm back, I just checked out tara and you are right! She definitely has boobs................oh yea what I was going to say was give this girl a break, she is a complete bundle of knowledge when it comes to gaming and I'm sure she knows more than most of us on here, I even had to listen to her kinda slating zelda! Yet I still think you lot need to chill out, not a fan? Watch something else this isn't the end of the world of gaming channels it is one of many! This is her job, maybe I'd agree with you if she was just a sexy bird with no experience in this genre of entertainment but she actually stays on point at a high rate of speed to! She doesn't shut up even to breathe lol but yea boobs, maybe she should do some cosplay am I right? Am I right? Nah seriously guys chill she has a job you'd want don't be anal about it
the unexpected SOM is underrated and a good game hunting down uruk caps and the nemesis system meanwhile the overhyped Destiny is overrated and boring as hell farming in a hole or repeating 10 times the same strike for a f***ing blue engram...
Without any shred of doubt this Lord of the Rings game is the best if it is to be compared with previous ones and is worth buying at full price with no regret or hard feelings.
The story isn't that amazing and won't get your attention 100%, there were a few parts where the story could have been improved and a few things added to make the relationship between Celebrimbor and Talion a bit more flexible instead of having them argue or have Talion wonder around with no aim some times.
What catches the true attention of any player in this game is the combat system, the amazing environment and the nemesis system. There is little doubt some won't replay the game since it looses some of its challenge when Talion fully develops his weapons and talent trees.
Easy games. Easy games everywhere... It's nice at first but then it's just repetitive, I want more games that requires actuall skill like Dark Souls and hard mind games like Antichamber (Antichamber is BEAUTIFUL).
The PC community has grown a good deal in a really limited time frame and there isnt any reason to believe the game wont be equally as addicting for Xbox players. The site states its something PUBG Corp wants to add down the road, perhaps as soon as the game is finished, as shown by a Microsoft representative.

The Honest to Goodness Truth on Pubg Warrior Pack
Nevertheless, its always tough to locate a trustworthy seller of a Black Desert account on account of the risk involved in these sorts of transactions. Bring on such a desert map! We guess because its about becoming the lone survivor, even if theres a lot of teamwork on the way.
The game will probably remain in early access for some moment. It continues to attract new players that are hoping to get that sweet, sweet chicken dinner. This usually means youre have to begin downloading the game at midnight, and after that begin playing once PUBG is installed. There isnt just one play through of Black Desert that ends up the same because its up to the player to determine the method by which they level. Because of this, players will need to use the Xbox Game Preview program to be able to play the game. Xbox One players might have to wait somewhat longer for the full-release edition. They will also be able to purchase some exclusive content in the form of special cosmetic packs.
