    The game is good BUT!

    Obviously the game is pretty good! BUT is only about killing Orcs! and don't get me wrong, that's what it makes it fun! but once you are over that it turns into a repetitive mode which is not really fun after a few hours... Read Full Review

    a great evolution of its predecessor which was already very good.

    I like Shadow of Mordor too much in 2014, even with its repetition problems, I loved the game, and I was very happy when its sequel was announced, Middle-Earth: Shadow of War is a continuation that surpasses its predeces... Read Full Review

    A disappointing sequel

    Thrown into this game with a cutscene that does nothing to interest you for the things about to come. I get some games love opening with a beautiful cinematic but it was such a dull opening for what sadly turned out to b... Read Full Review

    Dont waste your money on this game

    This game is absolutely terrible. The combat system consists of you just pressing the same button over and over again it doesn't require any skill you just press x over and over again and the enemies will be defeated. So... Read Full Review

    Better than expected. By a lot.

    Been gaming since mario NES. The first Middle earth was great. I was really surprised as I'm not into scifi fantasy type stuff normally. But I just loved the characters and effort put in. The level of detail was incre... Read Full Review

    More options but worse than its predecessor

    When I first saw reviews that claimed that Shadow of War was worse than Shadow of Mordor, most reasons were attributed to its microtransaction end-game and overall feeling of sloppiness. I found this to be quite strange ... Read Full Review

    A great game until it turns into a grindfest (that can be skipped with cash)

    An improvement over predecessor in ALMOST every way. Almost coming from immense grind required to FINISH THE STORY (without paying more money)....I've spent over 200 hours in this game, about 40 of those were playing ca... Read Full Review

    Fun Gameplay, Horrible Narrative

    Having played and loved Shadow of Mordor, I was very disappointed in this sequel, mainly due to the campaign, which is so short and fragmented, it is practically non-existent. The game-play is fun like in the original ga... Read Full Review

    Tries but has far too many issues to forgive

    I have been trying and trying desperately to like this game. I really liked Shadows of Mordor, and initially Shadow of War seemed to have been an improvement, but now, many many hours in, it has been one frustration af... Read Full Review
