    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.

    This game plays very similar to the previous one, but it's bigger and expanded in every way. If you're up for another open world game with Batman style combat and plenty of activities to do, this will satisfy you. I give it a 4 because I am getting open world fatigue, but it's still a good game.

    Everything that made the 2014 hit great returns in a big way in Shadow of War. Combat is more challenging this time, but you're given a ton of new skills to tinker with in a deep RPG skill tree. The famous Nemesis system is back with added tiers to make it deeper & more immersive this time around.

    Game is pretty much a refined version of the first game. A lot of fun. I would wait til a 'game of the year' edition to purchase in order to get all the content without having to pay over the normal $60 standard. It gets two stars because single player only games should not need a slot machine.

    This sequel does a much better job explaining the backstory of the first game as well and what was going on. The atmosphere is amazing. They have add d some really nice features in comparison to the first game. I very much liked this game, and definitely recommend it if you liked the first one.

    This game was purchased as a Christmas gift which hasn't been opened yet, so can't review based upon play, but based on previous reviews I expect my son will love it as this is his genre. The price was great and it arrived as expected and on time which was quick. I have no complaints so far.

    What happens when you mix one of the best video game series of all-time (Assassin's Creed) with one of fiction's greatest epics (The Lord of the Rings)? You get a phenomenal video game! Sunk countless hours into both games and worth every second!

    I rented this game a few times at redbox for my little brother, he wanted me to keep renting it so I just decided to purchase it. According to him its a great game, he plays it all the time and NEVER stops talking about it.

    Ordered this as a gift for my brother after playing extensively on PC myself. Game doesn't look as good on PS4 as it does PC, but the core fun is still there. All kinds of fun until the final portion of the game unlocks and you are forced into a slog of continuous assaults on your keep.

    I played shadow of mordor and like the style of Middle Earth game. I didn't pre-order it and waited till I watched my friend playing it. I went to Best Buy and grabbed the game immediately after. Kind of regretting I didn't pre-order it because missing the legendary Orcs pack. Lot of funs

    I was pleasantly surprised by Shadow of Mordor and really enjoyed it. This 2nd venture into the same territory is sloppier in execution, though it is more of the same. There are moments when this feels like a budget title, but the Nemesis system truly is unique and worth trying out.

    This game is incredible. The Nemesis system is one of the most creative video game systems ever. Nothing more satisfying than finally finishing off an enemy orc who has come back from the dead multiple times (often sans limbs) just to ambush you.

    I enjoyed the first and cannot wait to get into this. Yes I heard what they did with this game but that does not mean it will stop me from playing it. I just wont get any extra things and play the game as is.

    The game is pretty fun however when you compare it to the games like the new assasins creed you can tell it feels old as the climbing just feels to clunky especially when there are bonuses for moving around in a certain amount of time.

    I would recommend this game to anyone who likes a game that has a great combat system and a pretty good story line. The immersion of this game is pretty well balanced. One thing I did appreciate is how the developers put in the time with all of the orc characters and there abilities.

    Just a heads up, I bought this game when it was on sale for $7. I skipped it in the beginning because of the whole micro-transactions fiasco. But for $7 I think it's a fun game. So i recommend it for that price =D

    Running around and killing orcs and sometimes you have to listen to a long speech from a captain. Boring but with flashes of brilliance. I like when a captain attacks me or when they improve and the nemesis system advances the adversaries. Is an ok game but to much like the old one.

    First off this game is much like the original. The combat is basically the same but a big plus for me is that you get to fly a dragon. The story is kind of short and act 4 is a real grind to get the platinum trophy and real ending. If you liked the first game you will like this one.
