    Good, but....

    I loved the first Shadow of Mordor game so I bought this one without really looking into it. I probably should have waited and bought it on sale. It's a good game but I find it kind of confusing to navigate and move to different quests. Also the loot boxes are total BS and I refuse to buy them. Game can become a major grind.

    I liked the first one, and I like this one too. Not sure what it is about the series that stops me from really loving it. I think it’s because there’s a whole lot going on and I kinda feel overwhelmed from the beginning. But it’s fun

    Doesn't follow the movie / books

    Be aware that the story line isn't going to be straight out of the movies / books. However, the world and general themes are the same. If I were to complain about something, it's that the game gets a little TOO complicated and hard to learn in the beginning. Once you get the hang of it, though, it's really quite good.

    I like the Tolkien "Lord of the Rings" fantasy world and I really liked the first installment of Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. This new game cranks up the graphics and gameplay and is even better than the first game. If you liked the first one you'll love this one. If you didn't play the first one, go pick it up cheap.

    I've been really surprised by how good this game is. The story missions are pretty diverse and fun. Controlling armies is addictive. Don't be tuned off by the microtransactions. The game has daily challenges that give you Gold and I only buy the XP boosts. I haven't been tempted to spend any real money. Highly recommended.

    You'll like this game if you like Shadow of Mordor. I only played this game after the 17GB update that rid of the market/microtransactions that was the major criticism of this game. The first time I put the disc into my PS4, the update started auto-downloading.

    If you are a fan of the first game or Lord of the Rings you will absolutely enjoy this game. If you are follower of the gaming industry and know about the big issue right now with loot boxes and the like then you might not want to get this game because it has those. Other than that I have no complaints about this game.

    I loved the first game, but this is not really working for me. The story is weak, and the systems are overwhelming. The Nemesis System is still great, but now seems a bit cluttered with more detail than it needs. It is not a bad game by any means, but in a Fall packed with top-notch titles, it's hard to see how this fits.

    A great playing game with flawed lore

    Don't come to this game expecting profound expansion to the existing LOTR lore; it kind of messes up a lot on that front. That doesn't change the fact that this game is still straight up fun to play and the Nemesis system of hunting Orc captains remains one of the top innovations in recent years for open world games.

    I played the first game, shadow of mordor and loved it. Have been watching this game during its entire development cycle and knew what was coming in the form of updates and gameplay changes. But even knowing that I was not ready for how good the game really is. Highly recommend to gamers and lord of the ring fans alike.

    If you enjoyed the original you will enjoy this game tenfold. This version builds upon itself and adds great variance and exapnds on the original games greatest srength. The game looks especially crispy on the PS4. Story is decent, but not revolutionary. Personally, I came for the combat and I was not disappointed!

    Gameplay better than Shadow of Mordor

    The orcs are much smarter, so the gameplay is much more challenging than Shadow of Mordor. They learn your moves & are able to defend against them, so the game forces you to learn more fighting skills. The graphics & storyline are great. Great game! If you liked Shadow of Mordor, you’ll like this new game even more!

    Shadow of Mordor was a great Assasin's Creed esque leap into the Lord of the Rings world w/ a fresh story, but this game just adds on to something already amazing. Shadow of War has improvements in all gameplay mechanics and graphics. It's a wild ride I recommend to any Lord of the Rings fan or Assasin's Creed fan.

    This is a truly fantastic game that gives you the sense of being a truly heroic character who take on armies of orcs single handed. The different difficulty settings allow the game to be enjoyed by casual and die-hard game players alike. After the main story is finished there are still several hours of game left.

    I played the first installment of Shadows of Mordor for hours on end, and this has satisfied the obsession with new levels, new charter gameplay and an interesting storyline. If you love LOTR, or loved the first Shadows of Mordor, this game won’t disappoint.

    Graphics are better than previous game. It was a little confusing at first, because it showed a cut scene that supposedly happened between the last game and this one - confusing though because it makes its seem like it is a review of what happened previously, and I didn't remember that from the last game.

    If you liked the first one in the series, you'll love this game. If you haven't played the first game you really should because it is a really fun game. It has a great story, amazing graphics, and easy controls. Shadow of War builds and improves on the same concepts. One of my favorite games of this year.

    Game is a lot of fun. at first it felt overwhelming with the amount of different things you had to "earn" and "enhance"- but once I got used to the upgrade system it was a lot of fun to add different skills to Talon. I would recommend to buy, even if your not a fan of these movies (I am not.)

    I'm enjoying it, just as I did the first one. Yes, it can get repetitive, but the orcs have more character, and the missions are short and engaging. The story-line seems incidental to the game-play, however. The main characters are merely caricatures, and the plot gets in the way of chopping up orcs.

    This is a great sequel: bigger fights, better graphics, and even more dimension to the already spectacular Nemesis system. Definitely one of the better games I've played this past year. Ignore those whining over microtransactions. They don't affect the game and nobody is forcing you to buy them.
