In Middle-earth Shadow of Mordor XBOX One, gamers take on the role of Talion, a valiant ranger whose family is slain in front of him the night Sauron and his army return to Mordor, moments before his own life is taken. Resurrected by a Spirit of vengeance and empowered with Wraith abilities, Talion ventures into Mordor and vows to destroy those who have wronged him. Through the course of his personal vendetta, Talion uncovers the truth of the Spirit that compels him, learns the origins of the Rings of Power and ultimately confronts his true nemesis.
Every enemy that players face is a unique individual, differentiated by their personality, strengths and weaknesses. Through the Nemesis System, enemy relationships and characteristics are shaped by player actions and decisions to create personal archenemies that remember and adapt to the player and are distinct to every gameplay session. Gamers are able to craft their own battles, enemies and rewards within the dynamic world that remembers and adapts to their choices, delivering a unique experience to every player.

With the sequel coming up on the horizon, there's never been a better time to get in on this game. Great price, all DLCs and solid gameplay. The game is a delight to work up your character, to play through the iconic Nemesis system in a familiar but expanded world in LotR. Worth checking out.

Incredibly one of the best games to be released. This game seems to have everything positive going for it. Visually, it's great to look at. Story is in depth. Game play is exceptional with a vast map to divide and conquer (so don't expect to finish this game in a hurry). Characters and the War lord system/setup is huge. Even if you've never seen LOTR and you're not a LOTR fan, this game can be played without the LOTR background info. It does add extra for the LOTR fans (fills in a few little gaps). So extremely impressed with this game and highly recommend. Everyone should have this in there collection.

this game is great! the nemesis system is unique and very enjoyable. Game play is like Assassins Creed with a Lord of the Rings theme to it with obviously different tactics and interesting styles. Under-rated game. Delivery was pretty quick considering you guys are in the UK and im in Australia.

Middle of Earth: Shadow of Mordor is a great game. The Nemesis System truly is a great piece of work. Once you've figured out how the system works, turning a War-chief's army against them is highly satisfying. The combat is like that of Assassins Creed and the Arkham games but with a bit more polish and gore. This game world and music feels like something straight out of the Lord of the Rings. This game is worth every penny.

I wasn't really expecting much with this game, but I am willing to admit when I am utterly wrong!
The combat is fantastic - imagine Batman Arkham City but improved. The movements are really fluid and they have just got the controls so right - it's so satisfying to land that last blow!
The story itself is really interesting, the pace is good and at no point did I feel bored - great dialogue as well.
An absolute must for any LOTR fan :)
