    Fun game with good combat and a unique nemesis system that randomizes enemies, but it does get repetitive but cool concept non the less.

    This game will get pretty repetitive, but it will at least offer a few hours of gameplay before you get bored.

    Honestly, the game started great with its nemesis system, but over time it feels like a drag doing the same things again and again.

    I tried getting into this game but couldn't do it. It's too repetitive for me.

    If you like assassin's creed or similar games you'll love this game. Good story but techniques get repetitive.

    Excellent game with a lot to do. Mechanics get a little repetitive after a while but still worth it with all the DLC included!

    I like the game very much. The first time I played it thought I was playing Assasin's Creed.

    This game is a lot of fun for the first 10 plus hours. Starts to get a bit repetitive though

    While this game is immensely fun and the Tolkien Lore is overflowing, the game play can get a bit repetitive. The hand to hand combat is fun, and the visuals and audio are superb, the game lacks replay value.

    I understand this game gets a lot of praise but it honestly wears out its welcome far too soon for me. The combat is essentially Batman with a little more depth but it relies too much on that. The nemesis system is its greatest achievement and something that sets it apart from the rest in its genre.

    Very advanced game for the time. Starts off hard but gets easier as you progress. Kind of repetitive but the game can be very long if you do all the side missions.

    This is the game Lord Of The Rings fans have been waiting for! A hack n' Slash delight with a very deep skill tree system. A little short and repetitive but very fun.

    This game is a whole lot of fun to play. It can get somewhat repetitive at times, but not as annoyingly as a lot of games. The open world gives you a lot to do.

    A good mix of the Batman and Assassins Creed games. I enjoy the upgrades you unlock. I didn't like the fact it is so repetitive with killing Orcs.

    An excellent game for all lord of the rings fans. If you like assassins creed you'll like this. A little repetitive but not bad. Nemesis system is awesome.

    I was looking for an action adventure game to play during the holiday season. For a long time, I had my eye on Shadow of Mordor. I like the action of the game. It took me a few hours to get a feel for the game. The graphics are great. I am still playing so I am still trying to get a feel for the story line. As with most games these days, you can do side missions and digress from the main story. I like the slash and move tactic to eliminate foes. Therefore, the battle system works, especially when you are fighting 20 plus foes. It was a lot at first, but you learn tactics and gain abilities to help you eliminate them all. Leveling up your character is interesting and fun. You can use points to obtain various abilities that you can use in battle. Weapons are automatically drawn so you do not have to waste time doing that. You have the ability to climb walls, assassinate enemies from above, interrogate foes, threaten bosses, ride beasts, etc. I can see the comparison to the Assassin Creed series. I do like the fact that you eliminate one enemy, another one rises up. There seems to be a boss hierarchy system, so there is no shortage of these bosses to fight in the game. The game is fun, but it can get a bit repetitive at times. There are in-games challenges that you can complete for points that you can use to level up. I am half way through the game and though it is a bit repetitive, it can be fun. As I continue to progress in the game, perhaps the story will become more prevalent. If you like action/role playing games, then I do suggest that you give this one a chance. It was on sale for nearly $20 so the price is not bad at all. If you are a Gamer Club member, you will get a discount on the game. Also, this is the game of the year addition, so there are some extra missions that come along with it. I hope this helps.
