Game Description

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is an action role-playing game set in an open-world version of Tolkien’s Middle-earth. You play as Talion, a ranger who develops wraith-like magical abilities after coming back from the dead. You'll decide whether to develop Talion's wraith skills or his ranger skills as you journey to familiar Tolkien locations on a quest to return to Mordor and pay Sauron back for that whole "killing you" thing. There are a ton of optional side quests, and the new Nemesis System makes Middle-earth more personal by remembering players' interactions with specific types of NPCs and adjusting how those characters react later. That includes enemies, of course, some of whom will curse your name and seek you out for revenge! Fan-favorite Gollum even shows up as an NPC.

It was not a bad game. Graphics were good, mechanics more than decent. Just more repetitive than I care for without enough story to make the repetition worthwhile. Didn't even finish it before I sent it back. Just too much - fight this captain, gain this intel, fight that captain, gain that intel...more
