Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor: A Guide to Not Dying

"Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is a great game, but one that fails to explain itself properly.

I'm not going to read the article, but I think the best advice is to just stay calm. Don't get in a rush, focus on hitting and countering, then dodging when you have to. SPOILER

I am only an hour or so in, but I won't read the article. I did read the intro above, and I will agree that I do feel very disoriented at the beginning, and I did die once, but what happened with the kill was actually pretty cool (*might be a spoiler, not sure, but the orc captain that killed me came back later and talked about how happy he was that he gets a chance to kill me again, but this time I was beating him, and then he ran away, and I get the feeling I will see him again down the road *)

In any event, I plan on figuring my way through. I like the combat, and the adventure in general. I only did one main mission, but that was cool too. So far, I am really impressed with the game, despite feeling disoriented.
