IM PLAYIN takes a look at the rumours suggesting that Shadow of Mordor is a rip-off of Assassins Creed as well as a quick look at the game as a whole.
"When I first heard about Shadow of Mordor, I was quite excited about the prospect of a new game based on the Lord of the Rings universe. They’ve not really done anything good since War in the North, and that was a bit hit and miss. So, once I’d spent a few minutes researching the game and watching some of the recently released gameplay videos, it quickly dawned on me that the game was incredibly familiar. I’d like to say that I used some of my keen deductive skills to notice the slight similarities, but sadly it was blatantly obvious, and I’m not the only person to have spotted it. Shadow of Mordor, in my opinion, is basically Assassins Creed with some really interesting additions."
