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.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor delivers a dynamic game environment where the player orchestrates their personal plan of vengeance as they bend Mordor to their will. The game begins on the night of Sauron’s return to Mordor, as his Black Captains brutally execute the Rangers of the Black Gate.

Players become Talion, a ranger who loses his family and everything he holds dear, only to be returned from death by a mysterious Spirit of vengeance. As Talion’s personal vendetta unfolds, players uncover the mystery of the Spirit that compels him, discover the origin of the Rings of Power, and confront the ultimate nemesis.

A new story set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor delivers a vibrant next-gen game world through its Nemesis System.

Every enemy players face is a unique individual, differentiated by their personality, strengths and weaknesses. These enemies are shaped by their encounters with the player to create personal arch-enemies who are unique to every gameplay session. Players must outthink each distinctively different enemy they encounter to infiltrate the ranks and dominate within the dynamic world that remembers and adapts to their actions and choices.

Unleash the power of the Wraith

Players command Wraith Powers to orchestrate and execute their vengeance in brutal melee, ruthless stealth, and intuitive ranged combat.

Dominate your enemies

See the world through Wraith Powers and uncover details about each unique enemy to aid Talion’s revenge; each foe has their own exploitable personality, memory, and traits for players to study and manipulate.

Bend Mordor to your will

Gamers turn enemies against each other by forcing them to assassinate, terrorise, sacrifice or spy. Based on the player’s actions with the Nemesis System, every enemy encountered is distinct and can evolve to become a personal arch-enemy through the course of the game.

Grow your skills as you kill

Advance skills and abilities, and upgrade weapons to become legendary through a system of rune rewards that are crafted according to the player’s strategy and their unique enemies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mordor as it should be 15 Nov. 2014
Platform for Display:Xbox One|Edition:Standard Edition
Shadow of Mordor is a gritty, brutal and unique game and also a unique look at the world of Middle Earth.
The game focuses around your character getting revenge for the death of his family and himself and you are able to do this due to the fact that you have been cursed; stuck between life and death. This is where the rather brilliant gaming system comes in.

As you progress through the game you earn xp and level ups, like most RPG games of this style, however so do your enemies. Each enemy will remember you and have the scars to show for it. If an enemy is killed by you you gain experience, however if you are killed by an enemy they gain experience and grow in power through the ranks (this can also be done through fights within the ranks if you don't keep on top of things).

This system makes the game quite challenging and realistic; if you couldn't kill the enemy before, he now is even stronger, he knows your weaknesses. However, there is hope, you must gain intel from other orcs on what Captains or Warriors etc have weaknesses and what weaknesses to use to your advantage. A BIG standard advantage is stealth, so don't expect to go running in swords flying (not at first anyway) as you WILL get killed.

Using a sword, a bow, your wraith powers (all which level up via runes) and dominion over beasts, you must eliminate any enemy worth eliminating and those in between just for the XP, to get to you final goal.
I don't want to give too much of the story away as it is really good and fits perfectly into the feel and atmosphere of Mordor where the game takes place.

By Nick
Platform for Display:Xbox One| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
I had high expectations for this game and it has really delivered. What Monolith have done is build something completely fresh in universe most of us all know and cherish. Yes, they have taken the parcour dynamic from Assassin's Creed and the fighting system from Batman but why try and re-invent the wheel.

Once you start playing you realise that the game is so much more than these elements. The campaign does feel a little short with only 20 missions but there are loads of side missions which involve rescuing slaves and unlocking the legends of your weapons. You're rewarded for completing missions and killing orcs with XP which allows you to unlock new abilities, such as being able to perform execution moves.

Where this game stands out though is through the ingenious Nemesis system where no two orc captains or war chiefs are the same and each remembers there encounters with you.

I have spent 42 hours playing so far as I'm dragging out the main campaign for as long as possible but am planning on buying the season pass for £20 as it looks like there is going to be quite a lot of additional content.

I really hope there is a sequel to this game as there are so many more things they can do to... For example, I'd love to see the option for multiplayer co-operative. Taking out huge groups of orcs with your friends would be amazing!

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent 5 Oct. 2014
Platform for Display:Xbox One| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
Excellent game. Took me half and hour or so to get to grips with it but after that it's very rewarding, and exciting to play. There's tons of stuff to do to keep things fresh and killing orcs or whatever they're called has never been so satisfying. Recommended for anyone, Lord of the rings fan or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars What makes this game unique? 17 Mar. 2015
Platform for Display:Xbox One| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
I had high expectations for this game, and I'm far from disappointed. After 30 hours of gameplay, I just completed the campaign and I'm now attempting all of the side missions. Truth is I let the campaign drag out because I spent so much time having a ball with the nemesis system which in my (and others') opinion is the best thing in the game and is what makes it special. Don't get me wrong though, the campaign is enthralling.

Yes there is the open world and the lord of the rings lore but without the nemesis system it's just a regular game. Not only is interrogating orcs to locate and understand weekneses of warchiefs and captains thrilling but orcs have different facial structures and slightly different armor. They all get different names and titles (of which there is a vast amount). There is a variety of phrases that the Orcs will say and listening to them when they are unaware of your presence is interesting. Orcs levelling up when you die makes the outcome of every single thing you do significant. One moment you're fighting a regular uruk with shield and spear and then the next he's a level 20 captain/warchief.

Anyone interested in character development should know you get weapon rune unlocks and ability unlocks.

The game has a very unscripted feel to it because of the variety of ways to go about a situation and the nemesis system, you could choose to let a captain attack another or even use one to your advantage. you can explode things and summon/ride caragors (kind of like wargs) and graugs (like trolls). What you need to know is orcs remember every single thing you do, whether it's running from battle, getting killed by them, slashing them or burning them.
