Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor review

(360, XOne, PS3, PS4, PC)

Deep down in the wicked land of Mordor, evil is afoot… discover the origin of the Rings of Power and face Sauron himself in this epic action adventure.

MiddleearthShadowofMordor_Gollum_ScreenshotSet in-between the events of the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, Shadows of Mordor is an ambitious project, combining action and adventure in an engrossing story soaked in Middle-earth lore. There is more than enough here to satisfy even the most die-hard Tolkien fan.

The combat element is well-thought out and whilst not an easy game by any stretch of the imagination, the designers have set the learning curve just right. You always want to come back for just one more go, which translates into a superb gaming experience.
