Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor seems to be going a little under the radar for a game made by F.E.A.R. developers, Monolith, that is supposed to be out in late September. However, I honestly believe that this game could be a definite Game of The Year contender, and it’s got nothing to do with the Nemesis System. Yes the Nemesis System is promising quite a lot, and most likely won’t deliver, but if you’ve not seen the trailer below, please check it out first:
This has to be one of the best trailers I’ve seen for a game. As a huge fan of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, I can honestly say that the story in this game looks amazing. Not only do I want to play this game, but I also want to play the next game in the series, and I want it to be made into a movie at some point. That’s not to say that there won’t be some stiff competition, after all The Last of Us Remastered, Destiny, and Far Cry 4 are all released or releasing within this year, but I can’t wait to play Shadow of Mordor and see for myself how the story pans out.
F.E.A.R. was a great game, and Monolith are fantastic developers, and they’ve definitely got a Game of The Year on their hands if they play their cards right.
