Shadow of Mordor Gameplay


#1

So for those of you that are unsure about Shadow of Mordor and whether or not you should pick it up, here’s some gameplay footage of mine from last night.

It’s a solid game, and I’m having a ton of fun with it.


#2

Wow, it really is Assassin’s Creed isn’t it…


#3

Assassins Creed and Batman Arkham Asylum is pretty much how the combat handles.

I’ll see if I can get some video of the Nemesis progress later tonight… largely depends on me dieing though, lol. (Thankfully only died once)


#4

Is it an RPG or basically a linear story?


#5

Open World RPG.


#6

Well that’s definitely a positive.


#7

I’m truly enjoying the game, and the nemesis system is amazing.

Just last night I unlocked revenge targets and I have the ability to hunt down Captains that have killed my friends in their own game. I have 3 revenge targets for one of my friends haha.


#8

I wasn’t aware this was even a thing. Guess I should have bought this on PS4 rather than Steam since I only have one Steam friend with the game. Oh well.


#9

are you in the strats steam group? I’ll add you. I have it on steam as well.


#10

Pretty sure I am. Domo is my only friend.

Earlier today I suffered my first death in this game to some low-life spear-chucking Power 3 Captain I literally stumbled across while doing some side quests. He was given a promotion for his efforts.

About 15 minutes later our paths crossed again and I trained a pack of Caragors onto him that were chasing me. Previous intel (from the Vulcan mind meld I performed on an orc, moments before I drove my sword thru his skull)informed me of his fear of Caragors. I scaled a wall and shot a couple arrows into his flailing body as he was being maimed.

I cackled.

This game is fun.

Sweet. Looks like I need to pick this up! Was holding off since so many other good sounding games are coming out in the next two months. I like how the nemesis system ties your friends in as well. Hadn’t heard of that in any of the reviews.
