Why Shadow of Mordor Doesn't Have 'Lord of the Rings' in its Title

Twinfinite writes, "These guys get full props for resisting the urge to simply lean back up on the Lord of the Rings license and let Shadow of Mordor stand up as its own thing. Based on reviews and sales, this gamble seems to be paying off so far."

Yeah I was kind of expecting a bad port for some reason but were positively surprised. The game is outstanding, makes me a bit sad that it won't reach the sales numbers of Destiny, it would definitely deserve it.

Ofc it has. It has gollum in it :). So some LODR it have.

Funny how a couple people on here think it's not a lord of the rings game just because it doesn't have the name in it's title lol!

Ignorance is bliss, or they didn't pay attention that Mordor was mentioned multiple times through out the trilogy.

Mr_cheese1474d ago

mentioned. The story was based around them heading into it, how could that be missed hahahaha

Palitera1474d ago (Edited 1474d ago )

Mordor exists outside the trilogy. Sauron, the ring, Celebrimbor, The Dark Hand, even Talion now etc.

In fact, intelligent people can even see that the period of the game doesn't even match LotR's span.

But whatever. What to expect from people that saw the movies and think they are experts in the Tolkien creations? To these people and under this "logic", The Hobbit is a LotR "movie". lol

Ignorance at its best.

BTW: Is Silmarillion a LotR book as well? BWAHAHA

I think Middle Earth does the trick for most. But if they avoided severe restrictions, it was worth it. Playing Destiny and loving it but when I hit 30, gonna try and get to this b4 Dragon Age.

Played it for 20 hours now, It is really fun, more fun than almost any game in years. But.. ehm, it kinda feels like a Star Wars game, you feel like a Jedi, force choking people, force blinking, force pushing (when you level your stun) and so on. How you jump from incredible heights, taking no damage, using the force to slow you down before you hit the ground. Dressed in a hood, cape and a glowing blue sword.

"Dressed in a hood, cape and a glowing blue sword."

Actually your description matchs Obi Wan :D Does he get killed in the end?^^

Meltic1474d ago

taking no dmg ?. You die easy in this game :O

sarlucic1474d ago

Not when jumping off buildings.

I think Each time you jump from the tower he's possessed by the archer or he's phasing between worlds and when he lands he phases back in
