    Play on hard

    On the highest difficulty the game becomes a real game in my veteran opinion. I've gone through more than half the game fairly easily on the highest difficulty, the challenge begins to happen when the nemesis system takes its effect and levels of your enemies to be able to give you a sense of a struggle. Especially when certain enemies are combine with captains with difficult counters to get past. The game will give you a great sense of accomplishment and achievement once you pass obstacles that took you more than 1 try and it feels even more rewarding knowing the game is on the highest difficulty, as if you've transcended into greatness or into a new form. This game goes above and beyond at some points. The so speeches do get bothersome at some points as some so drag out the speaks with long pauses or pondered pauses to spew illogical distorted sentences due to being drunk or just plain stupid. The auto pull up of some of the pick up items is also an annoying feature, but manageable as long as you don't pick them up in the middle of battle.

    The graphics for this game are amazing! It can be a little difficult to maneuver through the game, but nothing a little practice won't fix.

    If you like open world games, this is a lot of fun. The difficulty is constantly challenging but never overbearing and its very satisfying to like through enemies as Talion

    consistently responsive controls, pathway to leveling up very conducive to addicting you to keep on playing. Only difficulty seems to be in activating online play.

    Another Mordor game with more of the same and a few new surprises. A harder difficulty, drake riding and some new mechanics make it worth the purchase. Tons of dlc to extend the gameplay if u really dig it.

    Difficulty is progressive in the game. @@@@@@@@ The game scales difficulty based on your progress). Great addition to the former game with even more fluid game play and moves. Somewhat strategy based and in need of timing skills.

    Lots of fun, expect a grind fest at the end though

    Great sequel to a great game. Improves on the nemesis system and has a decent story. Though it keeps going after the ending and without buying loot boxes can be difficult to get through. But you still get a complete game before that point.

    I very much enjoyed the first game with the story, the gameplay, and just everything involved, however it felt a little short. This new game has so much more content, but it doesn't feel like good content to me. It seems repetitive, boring, and very detached. There's no drive for me to play the game because there's no challenge to it, and I don't feel like I'm accomplishing anything.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
