    So I ordered this game because I bought the first shadow of Lord of and loved it and when I heard they where going to make a second one, I was ecstatic, however when I played it, I was like wow this is awesome but then there is the upgrade tree, only certain upgrades can be used with certain perks, which I find ridiculous. Why not let the player use all the purchased perks?

    I purchased middle-earth shadows of war inspecting it to be in my mail tomorrow. So I haven't played but I was convinced by watching reviews n stuff. Long story short the game is awesome graphics, kills, strange looking creatures I'm sold. I realized because this is a new game to me. It's a game before this and I think it's a movie. But I can't wait to get to playing.

    I beat this game last night "beat" to find out that the "True Ending" is hidden behind hours of tedious grinding or buying chests to make your army stronger to get the true ending. Other than that really enjoyed this game. Combat was smooth and fun, and almost everything is climbable so you don't have to look for specific things that can be climbed like in a lot of games.

    This game was really enjoyable and I had a lot of fun with the advanced nemesis features and the new combat tree. I think they did a great job at evolving the mechanics they had in place while also staying true to what made the original great. Really short and the “end game” was so tedious it took a lot of the fun out of the game. But overall fantastic.

    Was very excited to play this game soon after finishing the first Shadow of Morder game. This title improved on all the aspects of the first. The nemesis system is interesting in the game. My only fault would be the repetitive nature near the end of the game but overall it was a fun game to play. Would recommend for anyone interested in the Middle Earth Mythology.

    Who cares about micro-transactions?

    If you liked Shadow of Mordor, you'll like this game. Tons of people are complaining about micro-transactions, but honestly, who cares? You do not NEED them to play/beat/enjoy the game. I guess people are up in arms about paying for gear/characters in the multi-player castle siege mode, but that's not the core of the game; that's not even needed to enjoy it.

    Shadow of Mordor was pretty good, but I couldn’t seem to find a ton of interest in it, it got old kinda fast in my opinion. But Shadow of War is so much fun! It’s way bigger than the first one and the RPG system makes it even better. Definitely a Game of the Year in my book!

    Very much like the Arkham Asylum games. Full of lore and an immersive world. The vendetta system is fantastic, and after 20hrs of gameplay, I still dont feel like I'm running into carbon copy orc captains. The building an army feature is a lot of fun. Overall an amazing game.

    Excellent game that will give you anywhere from 30 to near 50 hours of gameplay. It's huge. The Orcs are super cool. Look around the internet for pro reviews. I do recommend if you played the first. I got this for $7.99 on sale which is more than well worth the purchase.

    I was happily surprised at Shadow of War. The story line isn't short and quick you really take the time to grow your character and upgrade skills and gear. The one con is that there quite a few glitches in the game where you won't be able to move or an enemy will be stuck in a wall you can't attack.

    If you, in any way, liked the first, then this game will be a pleasant surprise. They really took everything good about the first game and made it even better! They do, however, fail to go through a rigorous tutorial of all of the character's skills since, in a way, they seem to assume you have played the first game - which has virtually the same controls.

    I have been playing this game since the summer and can't get enough. I'm 68 years old and totally addicted to this game. I just purchased one for my grandson for Christmas. I can't wait until they come out with the next version. I'm just about to purchase the addon so it doesn't end.

    Worth a Try not that Monetization was Removed

    At launch the game breaking monetization made this an easy one to avoid, but now that it's removed and at the right price it's worth another adventure. Overall the core gameplay loop doesn't feel as satisfying nor the world as engaging as last time but maybe that's part of the EA hangover.

    I was hoping this game would improve upon the original which was lots of fun. Man was i not disappointed. Great action. Interesting story. The nemesis system has never been better. Interacting with the orcs is always a treat and killing them in fun ways always gives you an excellent adrenaline rush which keeps you going. A must get for any LOTR fan.

    It took all the good things from the previous game and added some nice new stuff. Overall I'd say it's really nice improvement over Shadow of Mordor. A blend of Batman Arkham series with some Assassin's Creed tweaks and some Middle-Earth stuff of it's own.

    This game is lots of fun building and expanding on the nemesis system from the first game. The graphics and game play are very good and the act of strategically taking down a captain is very satisfying. With the micro transactions having being finally removed and at the current price this game is a good deal.

    It's a grind, you will die over and over again. But that's to be expected considering its a from software title. The game is enjoyable just a bit too difficult in certain areas. I've experienced no bugs and the game runs smoothly on my ps4 pro. Well done!

    Poor mechanics. Cheesy graphics. Incoherent and chaotic story line. More of the same-old blah, blah, blah that mistakenly assumes that a daily grind to nowhere is somehow fun. Like World of Warcraft, this is yet another Johnny-Come-Lately dinosaur, not quality like Horizon Zero Dawn..

    Better than the first game

    Shadow of War is a lot better than the first game. Everything has been updated. Graphics look amazing on 4K tv. It can get a little repetitive as far a missions go but storming forts makes up for that. I did like the update to the orcs and the revenge system as well as sending your orcs to do battle with others.

    The Proper Way To Do A Sequel

    I was enthralled by the original game with its Nemesis system and combat, and with the sequel they tweaked it to perfection. Everything is polished and bigger with more armies, worlds, and creatures to control. The story is nothing to write home about, but its the combat and the world itself that has me addicted for hours on end.
