Check out These Awesomely Brutal Kill GIFs from Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor

CraveOnline: "If you’re the type who squeals in delight at the beheading of an orc, or claps your hands with glee over the bloody decapitation of Mordor’s foulest creatures, then you’ve come to the right place. I was a bit stunned by the game’s violence at first, but after a bit of good old-fashioned desensitization, I found myself becoming a proud member of the latter camp. It was only a matter of time."

in that first looked like he just stabbed Abe from oddworld.

Now i have to play this game to get the full effect.

I can confirm that these are commonplace in the minute-by-minute experience. So, much, AWESOME.

IMO it edges out the Batman games in giving you the "I'm a badass" feeling. And it does this from literally the first moment.

I also like how 'for the most part' they utilize increasing numbers of Uruks to offset your badassery.

That's good to know. My one worry has been that the novelty of the violence will wear thin, and/or you'll run out of interesting ways to defeat enemies. Sounds like it's not too much of an issue.

nah, you can die. captains will keep spawning and increasing in numbers. you'll go to fight one, then all of a sudden you'll be fighting 2 or 3 at once. it can get crazy.

Nah it just gets crazier and crazier as you go on.

Love brutalizing some captains and watching the Uruks run, that never gets old IMO.
