Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor
I looked at a preview video, and am AMAZED. The new enemies in each play through impresses me. The graphics look incredible, and the combat looks very smooth. I plan on buying this the second I can.
A Lord Of The Rings Game Worthy of A GOTY?
As we descend into 2014, I see many games based off of best selling franchises, such as Star Wars or Lord of The Rings, receive a mixed appeal among fans alike. The latest installment of a Lord of The Rings Video Game, titled Lord of The Rings: War In The North, left a mixed impression among audiences, which left the future of video games in doubt for the Lord Of The Rings franchise. However, with Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, the newly implemented Nemesis system is very unique to the gaming experience, as I can't wait to see how the AI transforms numerous variables in the game in order to craft multiple enemies to go against the protagonist, Talion. This, coupled with next-gen graphics and similar mechanics pertaining to the Assassin's Creed series, have piqued my interest as I eagerly await for Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor to be released on June 10, 2014. Lord of the Rings is coming back to video gaming. Let's see if they can get it right this time
LOTR comes back with a vengence
This game looks to be worthy of the top honors of the year. They are taking ideas from Bioware's and Fable's wet dreams. The Nemesis system, which actually changes the game every play through, makes the consequences of your actions seem real rather than one final choice at the end, I'm looking at you Mass Effect 3, Dragon Age 1 & 2, and Fables 1 & 2. The preview has any fantasy gamer begging to have the chance to buy it on the first day. The only thing that might be missing is companion characters but as Demon Souls has shown, a game can have a great story without sharing the spotlight. I would however like to know if Talion is going to have interaction with non-evil characters, maybe flashbacks of Talion's old life or others wandering about in Mordor (as ill advised as that is). With the lead writer of Red Dead Redemption on the job I don't think storyline will be a problem. The gameplay looks very similar to the assassin's creed series which should prelude a success. If there was one downside, I believe it is going to be the desolate environment. For those gamers who love graphic/scenery shots, I would like to remind you that this game is set in Mordor aka the big desolate volcano place where happiness goes to die. I hope you don't mind looking at a lot of grey rocks because that will probably be the most vibrant setting you get. Overall I can't recommend the preview enough. I haven't been this excited for a game since Assassin's Creed Brotherhood.
this game has got me pumped for it that I wish I had a time machine to go to the future to the release dat. this game looks like a mixture of games that are great. it looks like a mixture of assassins creed, witcher, and the batman arkham franchise. this game makes me want to watch all the lard of the rings movies ,and pull out my ps2 to play lord of the ring the king returns.
