IGN: Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Review

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor stands out from other open-world action games by putting a great new layer on top of the trail that Batman blazed.

Enemy3177d ago

Just read it's 1080p/60fps on PS4, oh my.

Enemy3177d ago (Edited 3177d ago )

@ annoyedgamer: You seem annoyed every time there's positive PS4 news, which is everyday. You don't think people should know where to put their $60, or would you prefer they go in blind and purchase the inferior port?

Your defense force tactics are too over the top. If it's flawed it's flawed, end of story.

"I don't always make posts but when I do, I'm annoyed. Stay miserable, my friends."

Mankey3177d ago

Oh mang, totally forgot about this game. But probably going to grab it now.

AngelicIceDiamond3177d ago

@Enemy No the game got a 9.3 because its good not because of 1080p 60 frames.

But whatever as a fanboy you don't care about the game itself or any game, just if its 1080p or not.

frenchtoast3177d ago

I knew this game would be good.

mcarsehat3177d ago

You judge a game like a 14 year old boy probably does, shiny shiny gwaphics and that's all. You shouldn't game.

"where to put their $60" lol.

Just bought it for £22.65. PC gaming.... <3

Volkama3177d ago (Edited 3177d ago )

OK I'll put prices on the list of "numbers that PC gamers are not allowed to discuss", right alongside resolutions and framerates.

At this rate the only thing left to discuss will be the games themselves. Sounds good to me!

SilentNegotiator3177d ago (Edited 3177d ago )

And the butthurt just POOOOOURS in as someone mentions that the PS4 version is at 1080p60fps! How dare you be excited about that, enemy! lol

"No the game got a 9.3 because its good not because of 1080p 60 frames"

Except he never said that was the reason. It's just exciting to see a third party open world game at 1080p60fps.

"But whatever as a fanboy you.."

Oh the irony. You're the one trying to misframe someone's comment to make it look like they only care about the graphics because they had the audacity to be excited about them.

SilentNegotiator3177d ago (Edited 3177d ago )


Yeah, too bad console games never ever have sales and don't have a used market so that console gamers can get the game cheap too....Oh wait.

Volkama3177d ago (Edited 3177d ago )

@silentnegotiator Really? £22.65. Before the game has even released. Admittedly I have only done a quick google, but the cheapest I have seen for the console is £39.98. The PC version is cheaper. There is little point in trying to dispute simple maths.

Instead just buy the game on whatever format you choose, and enjoy it. I'm only bringing up numbers because Enemy wants to brag about numbers, and my numbers are better.

bazinga_913177d ago (Edited 3177d ago )


Yep, ps4 has the superior console version and deservingly so.
Let these opposing fanboys cry. They are dying seeing ps4 crushing the competition. Lol.
They can only bring the ever upgradable pc into the conversation. That is only their last resort left with them. Lmao!

"I'm only bringing up numbers because Enemy wants to brag about numbers, and my numbers are better."

More like I am doing some damage control because I am xbox one owner and can't see xbox one having the inferior version.

SilentNegotiator3177d ago (Edited 3177d ago )

Oh noes, I'll have to wait a week to get it at the same price used on ebay :'(

"I'm only bringing up numbers because Enemy wants to brag about numbers, and my numbers are bette"

In other words, you're blatantly trolling. All he said was "Just read it's 1080p/60fps on PS4, oh my" ...that's "bragging"? Why do elitists have to get so upset any time someone says that a console game runs at 1080p?

Volkama3177d ago

At surface value you have someone excited about pixel counts. But read a little of the comment history and you'll realise what lies beneath is even more lame than that.

As for the xbox defending bit, the prices are just as bad on the xbox so I don't know how I am defending that? I am generally anti-retail prices, and generally most vocal complaining about them as listed on the xbox store.

More than that, I just don't like fanboys and I will put down the xbox ones as much as the ps4 ones. You shoud see the ragemail I got from PCBOX :-o

mikeslemonade3177d ago

This game is overhyped. I'm not interested in the copycat themes here like AC, bland Destiny, and LoTR.

Kingthrash3603177d ago (Edited 3176d ago )

I dont understand why the overreacting of the 1080p/60 comment enemy made.
Everyone has their opinion...the game got a 1080p.60...oh my.
I see nothing wrong with that.
Its no ones fault but Microsoft the the x1 couldn't match the ps4. Just like it was sonys fault last gen....smh get over it, id rather have 1080p than 900p on console games. ...pc is another topic entirely.

Stallion3176d ago

The above reviewer made a post on reddit saying that it ran 60 fps but not a consistent 60. Just a note.

starchild3176d ago

If a PC gamer had said something like "this is going to look so good running at 1440p and over 60fps on my PC, I can't wait", they would get a ton of disagrees and a bunch of people attacking them over it. The bias and hypocrisy of many on this site is absurd.

Anyway, the game looks fantastic. We should all be happy that a good game appears to be headed our way, regardless of which platform we ultimately play it on.

ginsunuva3175d ago

It's not hard to reach 1080/60 if you lower the graphic settings in the game during development...

Ok two more on my Goty list . Alien Isolation and The Evil Within . Damn October cant come sooner :( .

robtion3176d ago

Seems we have similar taste in games. I will be playing Modor until Alien and Evil Within turn up too.

Magicite3177d ago

This fall is shaping up to become a money stealer from our pockets and we gonna love that!

endzeitkind3177d ago

yeah right, IGN and PS4 thats the result.

callahan093177d ago

@Enemy, those two words were literally my exact thought when I saw the score. Then I saw your comment, and thought I'd mention it haha.

Tsar4ever013177d ago

I second that, Man, I wish they'd just create a good "Savage Sword of Conan" game with a deep combat system like is shown in this game. This game is Fire!!

Eddie201013177d ago

Looks like it's a great game. 1080p and 60 fps.

First resolution doesn't matter and fps does.
Now neither matter according to a certain group. HMM

Muzikguy3176d ago

I'm trying to figure out how people that seem to always argue, some with one another, all have more bubbles than I do. I can't hold down a conversation with 3 bubbles yet others have 5+ and they argue all the time.

I'm getting this game for sure. Before I even saw a review. I'm glad for the resolution and FPS also. I didn't believe the "gloom" articles about this game. Hopefully other reviews are good too

I think this game's gonna be awesome

UltraNova3177d ago

Yep getting this for sure. Gotta love these games that come out of nowhere and amaze!

FlameHawk3177d ago

I knew this game was going to be good, so exited for this.

masterfox3177d ago

I already knew after seeing the first gameplay videos that this game will be damn good, not like that Unity boredoom game.
