The game constantly keeps you in an open world surrounded by 9 billion orcs, so you're constantly fighting and stealth feels less possible and less organic within the environments. Instead of running into a captain once in a while - which makes it seem novel and fun - you can't spit without hitting a captain in Shadows of War. So fighting them isn't monumental, it's like every third fight.
In a large open area with little cover, everything is chaos as you're attacked by Caragors, Drakes, Graugs, and Ghuls at the same time (while, of course, you're fighting the billion orcs and the Captains). I often forgot what I was doing or where I was going and why because I had to fight so many things on the way there and the story connective tissue is so thin.
Yes, let's talk story! [minor spoilers - first ten minutes of game]
Did you know that the giant spider Shelob that's killed by Samwise in Return of the King is actually a hot woman? Yup. She is now.
Did you know that Celebrimbor thought it was a great idea to forge a SECOND ring of power to fight the FIRST ring of power with? Yup. Nothing could go wrong there.
Did you know that within five minutes of him forging it, Spider-Woman Shelob takes it easy-peasy, becoming the second most powerful being in all of Middle Earth? Yup. Makes sense, especially since what she mainly does with it is play a long game of hide-and-seek with Talion.
The story is thin and disappointing; the graphics are - for a PS4 game - reasonably weak, especially in the character's faces and hair; and as others have noted, WB Interactive has included a pay-to-play feature that, while not impossible to ignore, aggravates me just by being there. You want me to make in-game purchases? Give the the game for 0.99c like they do in the app store. Greedy bastards.
Bottom line: if you enjoy the mechanic of killing orcs from the first game, you'll like it again in this one (I did). But you'd better like it A LOT. Because it makes up 90% of your gameplay.
Boo, WBI. Boo, hiss.
