Middle Earth: Shadow of War Review

Three fourths epic.

When I reviewed Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, I elected to tell a personal story of my journey through the game in lieu of a traditional review, since it best represented the strengths of that title. As I was playing through its sequel, Middle Earth: Shadow of War, I wanted to do the same thing. Unfortunately, there are enough complexities with this release that story time will have to wait for another feature. Shadow of War is simultaneously the most fun I’ve had all year and one of my disappointments for 2017.

I could talk about the great graphics and the satisfying fighting mechanics, and how some of the stiff animation and problems with context-sensitive button prompts are the reason why it doesn’t get five stars. I could do all of that and you would have a good idea of what Shadow of Mordor is, but you wouldn’t understand what makes it new and special. So I have a different idea.

It's the end of a trilogy...all bets are off!

Hey all! Happy Halloween Havoc part tres! No time to go into detail on this one unfortunately. I had to shotgun it to get it ready for release on the big day. Listen to us talk about not scary things that scare us as you get ready to paint the town (blood) red. Also, the honeymoon is over for Destiny and Patrick, Angelo and Julian get down with Bayonetta, and when we bring up Batman # 35 it's spoiler country, so you have been warned!
