Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is a third person perspective action game based on the fiction of J.R.R. Tolkien. It was produced by the experience Monolith Productions studio, a team that has created games like F.E.A.R, F.E.A.R. 2 and No One Lives Forever. The story revolves around Middle-earth, the fictional world created in the Lord of the Rings, but does not follow the story from the book closely.
The decisions of the player can strongly influence important events in the plot, changing the outcome of the story on which the producers did greatly focus. The developers collaborated with Middle-earth Enterprises and the special effects studio Weta Workshop, both of which were engaged into the production of the Lord of the Rings movie saga. Thanks to their input, the game suits the overall atmosphere of the universe perfectly and remains similar to the visual style of the films. Our particular hero in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is Talion, an experienced scout. He and his whole family are murdered by Sauron’s servants, but for the scout the history doesn’t end there. Instead of dying, he is resurrected by the ancient Ghost of Revenge and rewarded with horrible powers. Talion decides to embark on a journey to Mordor in order to kill everyone who had a part in his family’s murder.
He can also find out why and who exactly brought him back to life and get to know the exact history of the creation of the Rings. In the game, we mostly focus on engaging in epic battles. The combat system is based on that from Arkham series. The enemies are very intelligent. Every monster is somehow different from the others, he has his own character traits, rank, strong and weak points. Some enemies can learn and remember our tactics or even begin to hate the hero and try to take revenge on him.
