Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Review (Invision Game Community)

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is the new Action RPG developed by Monolith productions who have brought us games like F.E.A.R and Gotham City Imposters. Following along the adventure of a Ranger called Talion you make your way through the pit of Evil that is Mordor, set just before the first Lord of the Rings film and after the Hobbit. LOTR games have flopped in the past, but some have also shone in the deepest darkness, can Shadow of Mordor keep its head above the orc horde?

Is it really that good?? It looks like a AC clone from the videos.

It's just pure fun. It's the most purely fun focused game I've played in a long time. It's not the type of game you put on and are immediately blown away by the graphics or scope or even the basics of the game itself but it's absolutely the type of game you are up playing when you should have been in bed hours ago and are still telling yourself, 'okay I'll just do this one next thing and then I'll definitely go to bed.....okay maybe just this next thing too'. In fact I haven't played a game with that kind of addictiveness since Fallout 3, or I hadn't until I played this.

Once you get past the swordy, castley, stabby aspects of the game I would say it's actually far more like Arkham asylum (or probably closer to Arkham city overall). The basics of the stealth and combat are pretty much exactly the same but the game does enough interesting things with those basics that it works as its own thing.

I have to agree. The more skills you unlock combined with some very synergetic runes you begin to realize how well everything in the combat ties together. It takes a lot of batmans combat ideas but Im inclined to say its actually more fun - the combat at least.
