The New LOTR Game Made Me Fight Dirty | Kotaku

Kotaku :

"In the roughly one hour I spent playing this third-person, open-world action game during a demo last week, I did nothing but connive and kill and turn allies into enemies. Sometimes things would play out as I planned them to—I'd target an enemy commander and use my wraith abilities to turn his once-loyal bodyguards into their usurpers.

But my manipulating didn't always go as smoothly. Sometimes my chosen champion would die in battle, either because he was too weak or because I accidentally let him die. Sometimes the warchief target would run off and I'd chase him down a field for longer than I care to admit. A shadow step—a wraith move that teleports you—helps a lot in these cases, but once these guys are committed to running they are committed."

The story is too old to be commented.

that nemesis system sounds great , my fav part is that if a normal soldier killed you he becomes a captain or higher and he is added to the orcs must be killed list :D

This essentially adds a game within a game. Not sure how people could complain.

I don't even like LotR anymore but this is a great idea.

Ok cool so his only criticism was that he had to keep going back to the nemesis system because he (sucks at the game) always died or lost a betrayer. I dont understand how this can be a negative because it just adds depth to the game
