Shadow of Mordor Gameplay

15 posts in this topic

Ok, so me being a huge fan of lord of the rings, I wasn't too happy with war in the north.  The gameplay I though was good but the game was so short and I didn't like some of the story elements either.  Oh, and don't even get me started on how the characters look in guardians of middle earth >.>.  Anyway, this game actually looks like it could be interesting.  Granted I don't like some of the story here either but hey we can't have the perfect lotr game now can we (*cough* battle for middle earth *cough*).  What do you guys think of this game?

It honestly looks pretty good. But I said the same thing with War of the North. I just hope I didn't jinx myself too much.

It looks AWESOME!

Would be happier and less heretical if it wasn't in Lord of the Rings though. If it was any generic D&D/LOTR inspired setting this wouldn't offend LOTR canon fans(and they're some of the worst guys ever...) and be successful just as much because I'll say it again, it looks AWESOME! But doesn't look like Lord of the Rings more specifically the wraith orc domination thing.

It looks like Assassins Creed but with a system that Assassins Creed should be using.

I saw this last night on The Escapist last night and I have to say it looks quite impressive. I'm not quite sure on how that Nemesis system is going to work though. So if I kill an orc, his buddies start to hate me? Is this going to work on all the cannonfodder orcs? Isn't it just simpler to just kill all the other orcs then?

 

Anyway, I'm actually looking forward to people reviewing this stuff.

I realized also how similar this is to AC when it comes to climbing and general movement.  I REALLY hope this doesn't become a big problem, like ubisoft getting mad.  As far as cannon goes, like i said it's one of my reasons for not liking it.  I guess I'm guilty of being one of those cannon fans.  Still, I want to give this game a try as long as it isn't really short and linear like war in the north

Yeap, it looks a LOT like it, I actually thought it could have some ubisoft involvement when I saw the trailer(hadn't read it was by monolith) but I don't think it's a straight code stealing case that would be a ginormous blunder that would kill the studio.

It looks like Witcher and Assassins Creed had a baby and made something that actually looks pretty fantastic.

 

I haven't been a fan of many of the LOTR games that have come out but i'm liking the look of that one.

There is still stuff to work on if they state it is even pre-alpha code but I really like what I see so far

The climbing, and some environmental setpieces, like the wires in between the buildings right here. Are a straight copy of assassins creed

Cannon wise it pretty much sucks, i do not like the idea of such powers in the Lord of the Rings universe. 

I will probably play this game still... I do not think i will like it that much.
