Developers Monolith stream some gameplay, for a story mission, may contain story spoilers if you want to go into the game completely blind, dont watch.

I have been listening to Tolkien's 'The silmarillion' on audio book and it has really intrigued me how the middle earth world was created. I am so hyped for this game.

The concern with these microtransactions is will the game be balanced for playing without using them.

I am really looking forward to this game.
In have been watching the live stream every week and they have basically taken all the feedback from the first game and expanded everything.
Hopefully the micro transactions are just in there for those who dont want to grind, and they dont make the general gameplay a grindfeast to entice the micro transactions.

The nemesis system is my favourite thing about Shadow of mordor. Looking forward to getting this tomorrow!

This thread has more videos than movies at the cinema have previews....

Would be interested to hear actual thoughts on the game from people that have picked it up, I liked the first one but wasn't that fussed.

This is a great video impression summary.


Reading on Reddit there is mostly praise and the general consensus is that it is More Mordor  :troll: everything the first had (with polish) and much more.

I love reading others accounts of uruks and orc they kill that come back etc.
I played an hour on Nemesis difficulty and it's tough!  I can't wait to get back to it tonight and I'll share more thoughts after more game time.

The gameplay looks good - smoother combat than the first game. Seems to have more "boss" orcs to kill (I have seen 3 or 4 in the same fight), and a greater variety of enemies to fight.

The section of the game I have watched is similar to the first game, with missions, challenges and things to collect. More maps, but each map is smaller and more dense - some people don't like this.

Have not yet seen the section where the controversy about grinding/lootboxes is involved.

So far looks better than the first.

The nemesis difficulty is awesome. I keep during so much!
Everytime I go to kill a specific captain another pops in and kills me.

Managed to kill Shak the lucky shot and he came back.
I had a few encounters with a Bolg the Impaler,

revealed Intel on him and found he was vulnerable to stealth, managed to kill him but I suspect he will be back
