An excerpt from our official Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor review:
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is the best Lord of the Rings game I’ve ever played. It’s that simple. It takes the gameplay of franchises like Assassin’s Creed and Arkham City, throws new gameplay wrinkles into the fold, and adds a good character to make your time in Middle-earth exciting. But it’s not all Hobbit stew and potatoes.
