All the rough edges keep this from 5 stars. But after about 10 hours I feel like there is still a lot of fun left in Shadow of War, and it is a competent sequel to Shadow of Mordor. If you haven’t played Mordor, its cheaper and probably worth trying out first to see if you like the game. Shadow of War is more of the same - but that’s a good thing.
While it is certainly not necessary to be a fan of the Middle-Earth setting, the story is entertaining and contains some great twists. Despite not being very lore-compliant, fans of the saga will still find many nods to the series and much to like here (aside from the most-devout lore purists).
While much has been made of the microtransaction controversy, I never felt at any time compelled to use them. I was able to complete the game without spending a penny or ever feel the need to do so. While I wish microtransactions would go away and had never entered the conversation for this game, I find it unfortunate to see so many people jumping on the bandwagon against this game when so many other games include them (i.e. Overwatch and Assassin's Creed Origins), yet get a pass from the fickle gaming community. The only other flaw that I would give this game is that the end can get a little grindy, but still offers many options for replay ability. I cannot recommend this game enough and can't wait to see where the series goes next.
