    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing... I wish I had looked at the reviews before I bought this game. Had I known the graphics were this terrible I would've never bought it for PS3. I know the graphics won't be up to par for older generation consoles, but never have I seen such a significant and horrible difference. I played through the entire game and experienced severe animation lagging, audio lagging, audio glitches, low res textures, and much much more! Even playing with this game on HDMI there wasn't much of a difference. There is no excuse for this. There are plenty of games out there that are playable on PS3 that don't let the graphics suffer (Red Dead Redemption, Uncharted, GTA 5, The Last of Us, to name a few). That being said, I did enjoy the gameplay/combat. It was for the most part fun and satisfying. However it was very hard to notice that. The graphics outweighed and masked the little good this game offered. On a newer console I'm sure this game would be great, but as far as PS3 goes, avoid at all costs!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Its not as bad as it seems. Okay I am going to give a complete honest review about this game on the PS3 (I did play it on PS4 as well). This game has many flaws and many strong points on PS3. Okay so the graphics, they really aren't that bad. I hate when people say it looks like a PS2 game. Obviously they need to get there eyes checked. The graphics I would compare to the first Resistance game but maybe just a tad better and I really am not picky about graphics. If a game has a great story, its got my attention. Gameplay is awesome and it is fun. Controls are easy to use and this game reminds me of the classic PS2 Lord of the Rings games gameplay wise but with more to do. Overall it is a great game and it is not as bad as everyone is making it out to be on the PS3. If you are all about graphics, perfect framerate, and no pop ins, then get a PS4. If you honestly do not care about graphics, and prefer to have good gameplay and great story then get it. Some things though that happen in the game though include pop ins which happen sometimes or frequently it really depends. The audio is a bit bad. It sounds good, but it is so laggy and cuts out at points. I hope maybe the can add another patch to the game to fix the audio. I know Wolfenstein The New Order had an audio issue and framerate issue when it came out on PS3 and Xbox 360, but they patched that a while ago and they fixed it very well. The patch they already released didn't fix it but did help out the framerate and other small issues. The other thing that I wish could get patched is the load times. It does take as long as Gran Turismo to load at times. So I hope that Monolith and Warner Brothers release another patch to fix those issues even though its been a year since release. But yeah all in all its not the worst game ever on PS3 and it does not look like a PS2 game.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A reminder that LotR is still standing strong. Now, I have read a lot of bad reviews for this game on ps3, and wasn't so sure what to think when my brother came home, with the game, brand new. He said it was on sale, and he loves lord of the rings. Why the heck not? So we popped it in, later that night, and waited for it to download and install for about an hour and a half. But as the game started, we quickly fell in love. The graphics were almost as good as the last of us, and the gameplay was much on par with Batman, Arkham City. Quickly integrating you into battle, and your death, the story was compelling, though not the most compelling part of the game. As side quests, destroying Sauron's army and Chasing Gollum through caves and plains made the open world experience seem so much more real, as you could in fact just go around chopping off orc heads, or follow the main questline. Yet, it was still lacking something in the way it played. I was texted by a friend, and paused it so I could text back. When I went back to the game, by the time it had loaded back from the start menu, I was receiving another text. The wait times were sometimes like Skyrim, where you just want to restart the system and start back at your last save, cause you feel that may just be quicker. The music automatically gave the idea of a score created by the orchestras of Skyrim and Assassins creed Black Flag. And with troy Baker as Talion and Liam O'Brien making a perfect impression of Gollum, I felt like the world was really Middle earth. This game has an appeal to it that maybe only LotR fans would be strongly appealed to, but may also appeal to others who are fans of the Arkham series and Assassin's Creed games. It will make middle earth remembered completely different from the happy hobbit towns, or the majestic Rohanian plains, but instead as something that is foul and corrupted, as the land of mordor. Overall, I was impressed with the game, and am confused as to why they got such bad reviews. Gameplay:8/10; Graphics:9/10; sound:10/10; lasting appeal:9/10; story:7.5/10; Side quests: 9.4/10; overall: 9.3/10

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible, Cheap Port The game looks amazing on the cover boasting "over 45 E3 awards". Those awards cannot possibly be for the PS3 version because it is glitchy, poorly crafted, and overall more frustrating than enjoyable. More often than not I end my anticipated game session after 15 minutes due to poor mechanics. DO NOT BUY THE PS3 EDITION.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Storyline but gets boring When I first got shadow of mordor for the ps3, the main problem i had was that there is no definitive save function, what i mean by that is You are not able to save intermediately when playing the game; which means when you turn your game off after a freeze(it happens) , it will make you restart the entire game from the very first mission. Gameplay- the game is very well made, that is heavily apparent as soon as you get to kill your first captain; but the gameplay does get very repetitive because when you have finished the game there is no dynamic quests after you complete the game; you can continue to kill captains and other enemies but the satisfaction of killing a big-horned graug is dwarfed(Torvin reference,hehe..) because they barely spawn in regular gameplay. Graphics- the graphics on consoles are definitely scrutinized by PC gamers, but Shadow of Mordor really delivers with the hardware that it does have because it focuses on the environment first and then the character. The graphics on the PC version of shadow of mordor is at a better quality but i feel that you can get a good experience without good graphics. Sound- Sound is really decided by the equipment that you have but it seemed like a really good sound team built the audio very well on this game. Repeatability- Shadow of Mordor gets a 6/10 from me in the amount of content that is present within mainly because the game sports no real dynamic quests after the main quest is finished; you can obtain Full Completion 100.0 in 32 hours of solid gameplay; which is relatively low for a triple A product. Things I Would change: 1. Dynamic Quests- Quests that don't seem the same after the main quest; any quest that says " kill/brand (x) Uruks" is not a dynamic quest. 2. Legends that add effects to weapons- After completing 5/10 sword legends; the sword now has a 10% chance to kill any adjacent uruk when the uruk next to him is killed, After completing 10/10 sword legends the sword gains the ability to activate The Flame of Urzael Twice. This and other " powers" could be a big reward for completing the legends. 3. More impact-ful choices- this game needs more choices that change the environment of the game after the main quest; one example is making the mordor area more lush and green if you have done all outcast quests before you kill sauron.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I think the critics are being too hard But they are being hard for good reasons. Ever heard the saying "Something's gotta give"? I believe that is the reason the critics are being hard on this game. I keep seeing the bad reviews that are givin to this game because it is being compared to the PS4 and XB1 versions, and those are obviously more powerful then the PS3 and XB360 and therefore more capable of handling the huge open world, graphics, sound, and the many other aspects this game has to offer. So when the game is ported to the PS3 or XB360 from those systems, well...something's gotta give. For those of us that are still enjoying our XB 360 or PS3, this game is definately not without flaws - texture pop, long load times, broken cut scenes, and broken sound bits. I haven't run into any freezing yet as others have complained about and I'll tell you that if I did I might rate this game with a much lower score depending on how constant the occourence. So I have to say that none of the flaws I have run into are game breakers for me, so when I look past them I find the game to be really entertaining. it has a great story, the controls work well, and it's a fun and lengthy campaign. For that I give the game an 8/10.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Utter Trash Do not buy, do not buy, do not buy! I was so hyped up for this game, it looked so cool with the trailers and gameplay videos that I HAD to preorder it. Needless to say I was extremely disappointed. First thing I noticed was the extreme lag it had. I couldn't walk off a path and explore around without it giving me trouble, not that there's much to explore, Duke Nukem had more detail than this mess. And Lord help if you end up surrounded by orcs. Not only will it lag, but the audio will end up skipping on you and eventually be replaced by a wonderful SCREECH.(That became the straw that broke the camel's back). Then I read up that the Nemesis System,(the main focal point of the game), doesn't exist on the PS3. Now, I can tell this game can be extremely fun, but the cardboard graphics and the lag along with the horrible audio, I swear it isn't worth the $60 one bit. Better off getting it on a ps4 or Xbox one than getting this neglected excuse.
