Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is an action role playing game in The Lord of the Rings universe. This game was developed by Monolith Productions and distributed by Warner Bros. Game takes place chronologically in between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Shadow of Mordor is an open world game, where you play as a Ranger by the name of Talion who has underworldly powers. You also have free roam to engage in side quests and roam around the open world of Mordor or stick to the main story line. You also have the option to level up two different skill trees for Talion, one being Ranger abilities that allow Talion to move silently like a rogue through areas without attracting any attention, and then the Wrath abilities allow him to mind control his enemies and have them fight enemy captains or assassinate their leaders. The games biggest break-through is the Nemesis system that will level up your main bad guy even when he is not on screen, to allow for better battles in the future. Game available on PS4, XB1, PC, PS3, and Xbox360.
