Thr nemesis system is better than ever. The sheer amount of unique personalities of the orcs is absolutely incredible, after over 60 hours of playtime I don't think I've ever seen two different orcs repeat the same line of dialogue. They have a unique reaction to every single thing you can do in the game, It honestly amazes me how much dialogue is in the game and how attached I can feel toward a semi-randomized character. I could go on for ever with stories and interactions of different uruks that took place that were completely unscripted and separate from the story.
One example that comes to mind is when my favorite body guard betrayed and killed me, and then when I went to get revenge on him, tell me in his dying breath that he was content because "it was all worth it because at least it hurt my feelings" when he betrayed me... And he was right! I've never had more pure hatred toward an AI in a video game before, I had fought along side him for weeks and he betrayed me for no other reason than he wanted me to feel sad?!
I HATE YOU FLOGG! I wish you would come back so I could KILL YOU AGAIN.
If you like assassin's creed and for honor, you'll love this game it's a little bit of both. Game is challenging and takes some getting used to. Overall really happy with it.
Only CON is the fact that you can't manually save the game. It auto saves, but you have to complete a task or kill a general for it to save. It doesn't just save randomly throughout it. So I've lost a decent amount of play time with that factor not knowing that gong into it and I have a 1 year old so I have to randomly turn it off all the time.
The story is good if you completely detach it from anything regarding the Lord of the Rings, otherwise it is pretty liberal with how it distorts the lore. I like the conflict between the characters and the theme of sacrifice is good, but the timeline and portrayal of some cannon characters in Middle Earth is all over the place.
I one glaring problem is Act IV. The first three acts progress through the story at a good pace and continue the sense of exploration and conquest. Act IV is a terrible grindy experience only meant to drag out your playtime and encourage you to buy loot boxes. It probably takes as much time as the rest of the game but with none of the interesting story or character progress. Really soured the experience at the end and the game would have been better without it.
