The success of the Arkham Batman games gave Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment the confidence to expand its video game licenses into more than just "movie" games, according to Shadow of Mordor lead designer, Bob Roberts.
Glad to see it's paid off for both Rocksteady and now Monolith. Hopefully other devs and publishers in the same licensed-games field will take note.
But...Lord of the Rings is a book... Regardless, this is how developers/publishes should approach licensed games. Time and Money well spent crafting a unique experience, which seperates itself from the confines of the film/books narrative.
I hope they will do a sequel 😉 10/10
