GamerHeadlines.com praised Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, giving it a 9 out of 10 – the following is an excerpt from the review:
“Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is the result of care and attention to detail on behalf of the development team at Monolith Productions. With its high production values that truly capture the essence and soul of The Lord of Rings franchise, it stands out as one of the best games of the year, and one of the best titles based off J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasy novels. Sure, it borrows a lot from other games, which can be very annoying, but the execution is there and it makes for an engaging experience. It perfectly mixes its own game mechanics with the ones that it borrows and the result is an outstanding third-person action-adventure game.”
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is available now for PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, PC and Steam. Last-generation console versions of the game (Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3) are set to released on November 21st.
