Product Description

You are Talion, a Ranger of the Black Gate, keeping watch over Mordor which has remained undisturbed for ages. In the blink of an eye, everything is taken from you - your friends, your family, and even your own life. Resurrected by a vengeful spirit, you must now embark on a relentless vendetta against those who have wronged you. Fight through Mordor and uncover the truth of the spirit that compels you, discover the origins of the Rings of Power, build your legend and ultimately confront the evil of Sauron in this new chronicle in Middle-earth. Set before the events of The Lord of the Rings, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor explores what happened in the land of Mordor as Sauron prepared his armies for The War of the Ring.

Dominate the Uruk soldiers of Sauron’s Army to build your own, using the power of the Wraith. Your power begets followers, willing or otherwise, and they will follow you or fall. Mordor’s wildlife has been forged in an unforgiving environment, ensuring only the strongest survive. Using the power of the Wraith, swift Caragors and mighty Graugs will become yours as well.

Characters

Talion

A Gondorian Ranger, Talion was slaughtered on The Black Gate along with his wife, Ioreth, and his son Dirhael. Talion did not find peace in death, however. He was cursed, and resurrected, by a powerful Wraith who possessed his body and reforged him as an undying spirit of vengeance.

The Wraith

The Wraith is a mysterious spirit that possesses Talion upon his death. His motivations are currently unknown but he is able to grant Talion the use of supernatural skills and abilities.

Sauron

The Dark Lord Sauron claims Middle-earth as his rightful dominion. From here in Mordor he will reforge his strength to conquer Middle-earth, for there are none with the power to oppose him.

Enemies

Uruks

Uruk Captains oversee Sauron's Army. They enforce construction and demolition projects, craft battle plans, and administer discipline to their underlings. Their hierarchy is combative; Captains win their place by slaughtering those above them, and keep power by destroying underlings who might oppose them. This ensures endless competition among the Uruks, and winning the rank of Captain means an Uruk is one of the strongest, deadliest, and most devious of their kind.

Caragors

The common Caragor is vicious, disgusting, and a relentless killing machine. It is native to Mordor and the realm's top predator. Their powerful legs make them excellent sprinters and fair climbers. Their jaws are powerful enough to snap through bones and cut through all manner of armor.

Graugs

The Graug is a beast of destruction. These behemoths grow to fifteen-feet tall or more, and their skin grows tough and leathery, making them extremely resistant to all manner of arrows, bolts, and bladed or blunt weapons. They're feral beasts, naturally combative, highly territorial, and ill-mannered.

Locations

Mordor

A land of shadow and the home of the Second Dark Lord of Middle-earth, Sauron, Mordor beckons to spirits and calls dark things to its twisted heart. It is home to many monstrous creatures, among them Caragors, Graugs; monsters neither the Uruks nor their Dark Lord have tamed. Its burning heart, Mount Doom currently lays dormant.

Udűn

The valley of Udûn is a harsh and unaccommodating land used primarily as a way-station for armies with ambitions to breach Mordor or attack from it. The sprawling land was once populated by Gondorian Outcasts but is now commanded by the Uruks.

Sea of Núrnen

Atypical for Mordor, the Sea of Núrnen lies hundreds of miles deep past its borders and is a lush, green landscape that Sauron is using to feed his growing war machine. Subjugated slaves are tilling the fields and fishing the sea to keep the Uruk hordes fed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Xbox 360 Review November 20, 2014
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
I give Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor for the Xbox 360 a 2.5 out of 5 for the reasons I list below. No spoilers of any kind.

So I, like many of you, have yet to make the switch to the current generation consoles. However, I have been reading up on this game for months, eagerly awaiting its arrival. So far I have mixed feelings.

First, I had no problem whatsoever with the installation. Just make sure you are disconnected from the internet when installing disc one, like several reviews have mentioned. Installation took under three minutes.

I have now logged about 8 hours in the game. The gameplay is a lot of fun--if you are a fan of the Batman Arkham series, you will enjoy the combat in this game. I truly enjoy taking on swarms of orks and uruks, all the while using different combos and/or strategies to take them out. As far the the 'dumbed down' nemesis system is concerned, while I cannot compare it to the current generation consoles/PC version, I have been pleasantly surprised with it so far. I set a uruk captain on fire and purposely let him escape, and the next time I ran into him his face was burnt and he was not happy with me.

Like others have stated, the graphics are definitely sub-par, especially in relation to other relatively new games on the 360 (Grand Theft Auto 5 and Wolfenstein: The New Order immediately come to mind). The cutscenes look nice, but as soon as gameplay begins the graphics look very outdated and muddy. However, its the texture pop-ins and screen tearing that really affect the experience.

1.0 out of 5 stars That's no game. That's a life lesson. November 20, 2014
By Chris
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
At first I was horribly disappointed. I thought I was going to be fighting as a ridiculously overpowered and conflicted hero, a sort of Middle-Earth Dark Knight complete with a free flow combat mechanic and inner monologue. I had this vision of taking revenge against a layered and complex enemy, slowly taking my time to work through their ranks, and turning them against one another from within. Maybe that was a fantasy, maybe that was a dream, maybe that's what was marketed, I don't know. When I finally got to use my controller for something other than navigating back to the home screen to execute another reboot I sobbed a little inside. Poor graphics, choppy frame rate, screen tearing, and load screens at every turn? I thought I left those behind with SW:ToR on my original Xbox. Then it hit me: I have finally broken into the video game industry. When I handed over my hard-earned $60, I didn't get handed two discs of disappointment. Nay! I had found my Golden Ticket into the Wonderful World of Game Testers!

First I got the opportunity to troubleshoot game installation. Most games have started shipping as two disc items, so of course we have to go with the two disc model here to be relevant. After all, there is a lot of buggy coding that my 360, er, I mean testing console needs to have access to! WB smartly thought to not include any descriptions on the face of the discs themselves to identify a loading or game disc, and no installation instructions included with the game. To make it a deeper learning experience they also made sure that once I identified Disc 1 as being the initial installation disc, the 360 wouldn't recognize Disc 1 if I was hooked up to the internet. I'm not sure what I was thinking. Who's going to have time to connect to Xbox Live?

2.0 out of 5 stars A Fair Game Review December 2, 2014
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
It is fair to say that all game reviews (or reviews of anything, in general) are based on individual opinion.

That said, I am about 3-4 hours into the (XBOX 360 version of this) game.

The graphics, in my opinion, aren't quite as drastically bad as has been stated in some of the other reviews. I only own "Last Gen" systems, so maybe I consider the graphics to be fine in that I have not seen or played any "Current Gen" games.

My opinion may possibly be different if I had.

The story, or any story for that matter, seems non-existent in this game. Yes, there is a base origin story for the character, and the tragedy that shaped who and what he has become, but that's about it.

There doesn't seem to be much story progression aside from kill enemies, die occasionally, and learn to kill even more enemies, only a bit more efficiently next time. For some this is probably fine, but I (as a fan of the books, movies, and other Middle Earth-centered games) had hoped for a storyline a bit more consequential to the concurrent happenings in Middle Earth (War in the North and Fellowship of the Ring). I don't feel that I have been given that in this game.

The "free flow" fighting system works well, and although based in swordplay, is not so far removed (functionally) from the "free flow" fighting system that had been implemented into the recent (Rocksteady) Batman: "Arkham" series games.

It is well implemented, and works nicely.

The rest of the gameplay feels very much like the "Assassin's Creed" titles. The "open world" running about and acrobatically climbing structures feels nearly identical to the aforementioned series, and works nicely.

Bought this game for my husband at Christmas. He loves it! No lagging or freezing. Graphics are great! It's harder than some of the other games, so he has played it longer! Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, but forgettable story and issues on 360/PS3
It's a pretty good game. The combat, stealth, and parkour is all as good as anything in the Arkham or Assassin Creed series. The story, however is not nearly as exciting. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars not the worst
Glitchy and seemingly unpolished on the 360. But that is over shadowed by the fun factor of the game play. A mix between the Batman Arkham games and assassin's creed gameplay wise.
