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.

If you've played any of the Batman Arkham games, imagine the combat being almost identical, except instead of using fists you have a sword and bow. For those of you who haven't played a game in that series, the combat is fast-paced and free-flowing. It is incredibly fun to jump right into a middle of a group of orcs and watch as Tailon hacks and slashes his way beautifully through the entire pack. You might struggle at first to avoid being hit while still dishing out damage to increase your hit counter (which allows for special finisher moves), but once you pick up on it you might give up on the stealth option all together to feel the accomplishment of single-handedly wiping out a couple dozen orcs with no problem.
Again, if you've played an Assassin's Creed game, imagine the movement being similar to that. If you haven't, imagine being able to sprint across an open field, dive over a rock and a fence, and then shimmy up a tower in a matter of seconds. The movement is more fluid than the AC series, in my opinion. Most objects are climbable so you don't have to run around for awhile trying to decide at what point you need to climb from. I took one star off of the movement score because there were a few times when Tailon would get a mind of his own when climbing. Overall though, it's quick, fluid, and generally glitch-free.
This one was the hardest for me to score.Read more ›
First of all, I am a big fan of the Tolkien books, and if you have ever wanted to play a game as a character in Middle Earth, SoM is definitely a VERY satisfying experience. This is because your path is not defined by the more popular elements of the franchise that you see in the movies and thus is not as predictable as previous games in the series have been. If you wanted to craft your own identity in this world, and see your character rise to prominence yet still be a part of the major events that unfold in Middle Earth's history, you will definitely enjoy this game. The story is deep and very plausible and you get invested in your character a lot more than say if you were playing as Gandalf or Legolas. There is a deep leveling system with tons of available upgrades and skills. The Nemesis system is unique and while I have yet to fully understand its implications on the long term gameplay, it does provide some element of strategy that I hope I can eventually master to my benefit.
Finally, the game looks beautiful and the open world begs to be explored. There is a lot of gameplay to be had when playing SoM and I feel that I will get my money's worth. The combat is challenging yet not frustrating once you master the controls, and I plan to start challenging the tougher bosses soon to get the rare runes. So far, I have enjoyed this game a lot and I think this will probably be my go to game until Halo: The Master Chief Collection comes out in November.
There's a wide variety of upgradable abilities in Shadow of Mordor. A total of 39 abilities are unlock-able, and some of them are super powerful, and makes the game that much more fun.
You can also upgrade your attributes of your resources and weapons. They include your Max Health, Elf-Shot strength, Focus, Sword Rune Slot, Bow Rune Slot, and Dagger Rune Slot.
For each Rune Slot you can unlock special perk that will help you kill more captains and war chiefs. In the beginning I was dying a lot, but after I started to unlock more of these perks, the game started to get easier and more enjoyable.
If you're completist then this game will take you well over 20 hours to complete if you include all the side objectives.
After many hours of gameplay I've finally beaten the main story. I'm very satisfied with how it ended, and I can't recommend this game enough!

Big LOTR fan and this game sucks. Played 2 times and then sold it to a used game store. Game is repetitive. Watch someone play it on YouTube before you waste your moneyPublished 11 days ago by Keith A
