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 story in Shadow of Mordor is pretty straight forward. You are a ranger, who was murdered along with his family in some weird ritual to bring back the ancient Celibrimbor. Celibrimbor inhabits you instead and you become an undead wraith sort of thing who is bent on revenge from the black hand of sauron. There isn't a lot of twists or plot points that keep you guessing. Some small ones here or there but it's pretty straight forward. It's a good story but predictable.
The gameplay is really the strongpoint of the game. It's a mix between the Batman games and assassin's creed. It's an open world game FULL of sidequests. You can earn new abilities as well as upgrade you character and weapons. Very similar to the previously mentioned games. But that's not a bad thing because those games have great gameplays as well. Probably the best part of the gameplay is the nemesis system. You can see the hierarchy of Sauron's Army and attack captains and war chiefs. Some will get promoted to take other's place. You can see their weaknesses and their strengths. It truly is a great addition to the game. The reason I knock a point off for gameplay are a few things. Camera angles can get really frustrating when you are in the middle of a big fight and the camera gets stuck on the other side of the wall. Really by this time we shouldn't still be having camera angles. Also, the sidequests vary in difficulty from you can pretty much do it with your eyes closed to absolutely impossible. That might be nice for some...but to me it was aggravating.
Similar to story, the characters are done well but nothing really jumps out at you. Celebrimbor and Talvin the dwarf are really well done. But characters like Talion and Litharial are just kind of meh. That's ok because really there is no glaring weakness in the characters which prompts me to give it an 8.
While the game has a few things going against it like widely varying degrees of difficulty and bad camera angles, the game really is a treat especially for those that are fans of the Tolkien universe. Do yourself a favor and give it a shot.
