    Great from Start to ... not the finish alas

    I am a huge fan of all things Tolkien and LOTR. That being said, I found that this game relates to the source lore on a very minimum level, despite featuring the ring, sauron, gollum, a song about Durin yada yada yada, ... Read Full Review

    The developers created a super cool game, the textures are awesome, but at the same time that's not a good thing when you focus only in the ORC FACES! WTF! is like every time you cross swords with an orc, you are about t... Read Full Review

    Very repetative and requires little skill, if you haven't died once

    I'm just going to the main point of it. If you haven't died once in the game (or died only twice or so), the game is not challenging at all. If you do all the side quests or just kill random orcs along the way to your m... Read Full Review

    Tolkien works in games sometimes work.

    Game adaptations of Lord of the Rings / The Hobbit have always been questionable, unfortunately there are more bad games than good games, so even with a certain Hype, Shadow of Mordor was also worrisome to be more weak, ... Read Full Review

    Game of the Year or is it?

    The game is insanely good and has nice graphics and gameplay, but the game is low on content and the storyline is not so good, like if it didn't even exist. Storyline is quick and not so rich, followed by characters tha... Read Full Review
