Liam from GamerCrowd has been playing a lot of Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor lately, and here's what he has to say about it.
I'm glad to hear you enjoyed it. I'm still pretty new at the whole reviewing scene, but it's good to know that people enjoy it
Digital foundry proved it's 30fps locked on Xbox one and ps4 despite rumors
Yep, the people giving you disagrees are silly. Lots of people were claiming it was an "unlocked 60fps" on PS4 when in fact it is actually 30fps. Besides, the term "unlocked 60fps" doesn't even make sense. You can only cap framerates below the average framerate, you can't "lock" a framerate higher than the average framerate the hardware is capable of. Calling it an "unlocked 60fps" would actually imply that the game was running above 60fps, not below. It would be better to refer to such games as having a "variable framerate" or, more specifically, "an uncapped 30fps (with variable framerate running somewhere between 30fps and 60fps)".
I could to some degree understand if people disagreed because they thought All-Consoles were "needless hating" but then I noticed that the review specifically says that the game runs at 60 fps which is factually wrong. So yeah, I agree with both of you.
Thanks for that catch. I feel like an idiot, as I was saying to Ritchi that it was 30fps on PS4 the day before I wrote my article, but i mistakenly typed 60fps. I have since ammended the article. Thank you once again :D
Such an addictive game. Fair review!
Yeah, it really is a fantastic game. One of the freshest experiences I've had in a while.
My copy just finished downloading. Cant wait to play this after I beat Wolfeinstien.
its a cool game, the pc version is well done as well.
Shadow of Mordor may be one of the best, if not the best game set in Middle Earth.
