Received a copy of Middle-earth: Shadow of War for Christmas.  Every since I first hear about this game back in March (2017) I have had my eye one it.  I played the hell out of the first game, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor.  All most got 100% complete in that game.  So far have only played a few hours.  Much like the first game the combat is awesome.  It flows so smooth.  There is a lot more to look this time around.  The part of the map I have been playing is looks much better than the first.  There are a lot more colours.  One of the goals of the game is to take out the captains.  So far they all of different personalities.  While I did die a bunch of times.  It only felt cheep once.  The others because I screwed up.  In most games I put the game down if I die too many times.  This game however I keep going to get my revenge on the orc that took me out.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Review

Middle-earthShadowOfMordor.jpgPut about 50 hours into Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and still have a few side missions left to do.  To sum this game on in one word, awesome.  One of the best games I have played this year.  Was not bored once.  After all those hours the combat is still so much fun.  The game is mostly combat but there are lots of upgrades and perks you can get which makes it even more fun.  The story is good.  It takes place between the Hobbit and Lord of The Rings movies.  So they worked in some faces you will know.  But left it more open to tell an brand new story.

This is an open word game.  Which takes place over two maps which are about the same size.  They are not so big you get lost but all so fun to explore.  The difficulty was just right.  You will die at times but there is nothing that makes it feel cheap or too hard to get past.  Once you get the hang of the combat you can be taking out the Orc’s by the dozens.  The trick is not to be afraid to run way.  All so use all the tools you have at your disposal.  The game is so much fun.  It is a must buy.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Free DLC

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , on October 26, 2014 by getbent57

Middle-earthShadowOfMordor.jpgJust found out there is new DLC out for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor.  Which is called The Power of Shadow bundle. The best part is, it’s free.  Not ever often free DLC comes out for games.  This DLC lets you play as The Black Hand.  There are all so three new Epic Runes you can get.

  • The One with Nature Rune makes you immune to poison attacks from Ukuk Captains or Ghuls.
  • The Ascendant Rune give you double focus time for slow motion ranged combat.
  • The Elven Grace Rune increases defense, which halves the damage of enemy strikes.’

Not sure if you have to finish the game or not play the Black Hand.  Am still not far into the game yet.  Still haven’t made it to the second map yet.  It is a very gun game.  Well worth the money.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor

Middle-earthShadowOfMordor.jpgPicked up a copy of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor the day it came out, September 30, 2014.  As I am typing this only played about an hour and a bit.  Since this game is open world there is lots to look at.  Right from the start the game can be a bit overwhelming.  There are lots of things  to look which can be a confusing.  It just take time.  For the gameplay is very nice.  Everything moves nice and smooth.  The combat is a mix of Assassin’s Creed and the Arkham games.  Which is cool because I enjoyed playing those game.  Will be back with an update once I get more into the game.

[Update]  At this point I have put in about six hours or so and only done two story missions.  Having funny just checking out the world.  Doing side missions and upgrade things is very fun.  The cool thing about this game the bad guy system called the Nemesis System.  Is different for everyone.  So far having a blast playing this game.
