    Frustrating so far..

    While the games graphics look good, the combat of this game leaves a little to be desired. There isn't much of a tutorial to learn what must be done and leaves it all up to the player to figure it out. After being killed time and time again i have been left a little frustrated by the game. Portions are fun and challenging but the combat is killing it for me so far.

    This game is pretty good, it follows the same formula of open world with collectibles and map markers that is becoming so common right now. The combat looks cool, but is ultimately is either way to easy by spamming the 2 attack buttons or way too hard as you get overwhelmed by enemies. The story is pretty much a non-factor, typical story of redemption and revenge

    Fun but repetitive

    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.

    I tried it, but its real hard. There's these guys who are quite a bit bigger then you and they really wood like for you to be dead. It's pretty hard to kill them. but you have to. fun game if you don't mind being angry at how bad you ar e at it. And orcs are mean

    Very good, but lacks polish

    A very good game, one of the best Next-Gen titles early on, but nowadays, the game lacks a lot of polish. Graphics don't look as good, and gameplay and story feel kind of sluggish. But a good game nonetheless, and a good starting point for the eventual sequel.

    I am enjoying this, but glad I waited and didn't pay full boat. Not a huge gamer, but this didn't pull me in like the Arkham games or Tomb Raider. The atmosphere eis good, just doesn't seem to have as coherent a story.

    While I didn't particularly enjoy the gameplay of this, the lore and depth of the characters is awesome. If you like quirky combat systems, or love the lore of middle earth, this is for you.

    Interesting game, might be fun to play, started to play but didn't get captivated right away. Probably would be more fun if I let myself get into it more.

    The game starts out slow. Took a while to get used to the button setup. Once you get into it the possibilities are endless in gameplay.

    Won game of the year it's a fantastic expansion of the lord of the rings franchise, with its own twist. I would recommend to those fans specifically

    Extended Edition Not Worth It

    Game was amazing but the extended edition was not worth it for the extra money. The game was so long that by the end I had no interest in the extras.

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

    Unfortunately this did not get much play time before being sold to Game Stop for credit. It just wasn't a hit with my son.

    I enjoy my time with this game. Really like the combat and Assassin's Creed feel to it. Nemesis system is amazing though.

    This game is really more complex then it needs to be. There's too much going on. Only for hardcore LotR fans.

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

    I am still trying to figure out how to approach and play this game. Not very intuitive.
