Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor Review - Uruk killing Sim

Price

Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is currently priced at $49.99, which seems a fitting price for what it has to offer.

Conclusion

For all its faults, I liked Battle for Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. It's probably the best Lord of the Rings themed game to date, and though it shamelessly borrows a lot of mechanics from its peers, it manages to blend them in perfectly.

The biggest flaw it has right now is the world. I could have been more fleshed-out, offer you some sort of reprieve from the endless slaughter. 

Yet, if you're looking for an Orc killing Sim, this is the best there is.

 

Pros Cons

 -  Nemesis system works great;

- Satisfying combat;
