From the manufacturer
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

The graphics certainly seem fine to me. Is it PS4 quality? No (Seriously, is it reasonable to expect PS4 quality on a PS3?). But I can easily distinguish different types of Orcs, especially the 'Captains' and Chiefs and such. Terrain looks convincingly like Mordor to me.
Gameplay. The different Orc Captains and Chiefs all definitely have different personalities and different fighting styles. As Chiefs and Captains increase in level they seem to also increase in the number of followers. You don't have to know their weaknesses to defeat them - but it certainly helps. The open world is really fantastic and the options for improving weapons & skills are quite varied. Its a fairly challenging game, to be sure, but there is enough to see and do to keep it interesting. And the missions/quests are quite varied. I love the "Nemesis" system - perhaps it is dumbed down compared to next-gen consoles but its hard to tell and still provides a really interesting dynamic. The "Artifacts" and the "Ithildin" took a little time to figure out (hint - you have to be in "Wraith" mode). The Caragors were a real pain in the behind initially but once I learned to ride them, things got better (two hints here - initially you cannot ride them so you're better running away; riding is a skill you must acquire).
At least with the current patch, I'm not seeing much in the way of bugs. Only one slightly silly one - in a mission I killed a particular Captain. Only to see him not only back but promoted 10 minutes later! But in searching on Google, it seems that's a problem across all the consoles. Yes, there are some long load times - you almost dread going to the map or any menus because you'll spend 20 seconds or so waiting to go back to the game when you exit the map. But I can live with that (and I'm learning to get by without the map).
I started playing this game 2-3 weeks ago. I couldn't put it down. I would play whenever I had 30 minutes or more to play. I wish the story was longer.
This is a great, single player game for anyone that loves Lord of the Rings. The story is awesome and not too hard. I enjoyed how the mechanics worked and the fluidity of the game. I hope they make another or allow me to buy story add-ons (not just 1-2 missions, but an hour or more of story would be awesome).
Only gripes are that it is it's own worst enemy. The game, to me, is very immersive. Yet, 3-4 times, I found bugs in the game that forced me to restart the console. For instance, while fighting a warchief, I got stuck in a no-man's zone. A place between two objects and I couldn't be killed or attack the baddies. Normally, I could teleport to a different part of the map (which I had to do more than once). But when you are fighting a boss, you can't teleport out. Therefore, I had to reboot.
The other issue I had was the loading time. Not sure if this was optimized for PS4 or what, but every time you press start to see the map or something else and then go back to to the game, you had to waste 30-45 seconds on loading. Do that 10 times per gaming session and it's about 5-10 minutes of wasted time. You play it for 2-3 hours and you can wastes 30 minutes on loading times... I learned to not use the maps, but there are times when you have to. Fix the loading time to under 5-10 sec and the gaming experience would have been much better.
Luckily, the game itself is worth the wait. Now, if a second game is going to be made, reduce the loading time and the bugs and I will be first to pre-order
