"My Precious!" Being a huge fan of The Lord of the Rings franchise and being a huge fan I even have my wedding band as the most powerful ring that Sauron wore but in black instead of gold, I had to play Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. I know the game has been out since September but I finally got my hands on a copy about a week and a half ago and when I say I was hooked, I mean sitting in front of my TV for about 4 hours at a time playing through the story. The Lord of the Rings franchise has done so well since the books were written years ago and they still appeal to many people young and old. I have played numerous Lord of the Rings inspired games and I must say that Shadow of Mordor blew me away with many aspects of its game.
All around I believe that everyone should play Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor not matter what console they play it on. I prefer it on the PS4 because I like the controller better than the Xbox One controller but remember my review is from my play through on the PS4 and I am not sure how the game looks on Xbox One, 360, or PS3. If you get a chance to play this game definitely do it. You will not be disappointed.
+ Great Story that is in depth and enjoyable
+ Graphics that are stunning
+ Music that reminds you of what Lord of the Rings is all about
+ Captivating from start to finish
- A bit frustrating to complete side quests to advance story
Overall Grade - A
