I didn't like it at first but I am now loving it - great game though I am pretty certain the combat engine is just lifted from batman

Started getting into this and I can feel my life getting pulled away all over again. I must be better at these games than I thought, because aside from the occasional bit of bad timing, when two other captains turn up while I'm battering a third, and the times I've gotten a bit lazy and cocky, I've not found it too hard at all. Helps that the game is mostly very good about letting you run off and come back to the captains - the world persists for quite some distance away from the player, so there's never that annoying GTA thing where something you wanted to get/kill/destroy disappears when you get a block away from it.

Anyone played the DLC? Is it worth getting?

i'm pissed off, i bought this game in a sale (still £23, though) on the playstation store a few days ago for ps3.
the graphics look like shit, like really, really bad. i just googled to try to find out why it looks so awful and found out a bunch of other bad stuff about it, including the fact that it doesn't even have the nemesis system in it which is like the main reason i wanted it.
bullshit. can't even get a fucking refund. shitow of mordor more like yes shitow fuck off

You idiot.

But yeah they shouldn't have released it on PS3/360 if they couldn't make a proper version of it.

You'll need a decent PC to run it on even on low settings though.

Is there anything to this game other than twatting orcs? Getting a bit bored already.

How far into it are you? You do end up doing stealthy bits and organising elaborate traps with escaped beasts and setting people on fire, plus the whole manipulating the tribal orc politics business.

But, in some sense, that is all just twatting orcs.

I've just met that little tosser Golum.


So far this feels like some over-elaborate mobile game with far too many different gameplay mechanics and bells and whistles.

It is very repetitive, and neither the mechanics nor the world are complex or deep enough to provide variety. Some of the challenges are quite fun, but I burned out pretty quickly and I wouldn't be surprised if others did too.

Bought it on PS4 cheap only to realise they weren't offering, what was it? Shadow of War

Still fun, not actually that different, but Spiderman is fuckin boss and Arkham City Remastered exists...

Why is it when you press pause in this gane theres some orc going 'hhmmmmm ggrrrrrrmmm huugggmmmm ghmmmmm'. It's very unnerving when you forget about it and go for a piss and it sounds like there's some man squatting in the back bedroom masturbating.

I just worked out I'm actually playing shadow of war not shadow or mordor. Are they different games?

Technically..

The second looks a bit nicer and you have more powers n that.

In other words, if you wonder if you'll need to revisit the first, unless you fuckin LOVE this one, No. No, no no no no.

Yeah no chance of that, I don't want to play this game again. I'll try and finish this one but it's more of a chore than anything.

Haha. Well, like I said upthread, snuff yourself on orcs to explore the delights of the nemesis system

But there's really no point going backwards in the series.

Spider Man, now that's a good post-Arkham game...

First time in ages I gave up on this long before finishing it. Just too repetitive and boring, but not in a fun junk foodey way like Far Cry, in an annoying, frustrating and confusing way.

I've played through both, and they are excellent games. Has anyone else played Shadow of War? I don't want to spoil the plot, of course.

But Talion is such an interesting addition to the world I love so much. And the games are witty too - the amount of effort put into giving every orc their own personality is astonishing.

When I can afford it I'll be purchasing Blade of Galadriel.

It is good that theyre all different, but bad that theyre all different extras from a Guy Ritchie film.
