Thoroughly enjoying this game

If you played the previous game you know exactly what to expect with Shadow of War. The gear system is fun and the variety of Captain gimmicks set the tone of the game well. If you're worried about the loot chests, don't. Mirian is everywhere. You will get all the gear your little heart desires. Also Talion looks more like Sean Bean, which is always a plus.

Even better the the previous one

I like this so much better than the last one. I have been playing for the last 8 hours straight, i had to force myself to take a break cuz i was going cross eyed. The last game i'd get bored after a half hour or so. There is so much more to do in this one so it doesn't seem as repetitive. I buy pretty much every game that looks decent. I wasn't real excited about this like i am for some, but i was definitely pleasantly surprised with this game. It is well worth the money.

I love the game, but.....

I bought the Gold Pre-Order Edition but have yet to have access to any expansions except the Sword of Dominion. (To be clear I am in Act 2 and have taken the Nurn Fortess) From everything I have seen I should have access to my warchest and the war party but as with others I don't even see them. (I do have the expansion pass however, I don't see any in game access to it)

Fantastic game

This game has taken everything that was great about Shadow of Mordor and made it even better. The action is intense and challenging. You are going to die, probably a lot, but that's ok because that is a part of the story. Get out there and build your orc army. Also everyone saying that it didn't install and giving it one star didn't pay attention to the release date.

Good but...

Shadow of War is a great game and I knew it would be so I preordered the gold edition. But I didnt get any of the content that it promised. I never got the 4 legendary champion, Iv never seen any of the two bonus tribes, I was also soposed to get a gold chest which I also didnt get. It also said that the expansion pack came with it but now its telling me that I need to buy it again. So for an extra 40$ all I got was a sord that I replaced with in 30 min of the game. Sorry if it seems like I dont like the game, I love it, but you littarly stole my money. YOU NEED TO FIX THIS

if you love the first game you'll love this

This was a fun,good experience. The story was interesting and kept me captivated me and really made me want to figure out what will happen next for the characters. But the main attraction was and will always e the nemesis system. it creates a wide range of unique uruks,ologs (enemies) for you to fight or make apart of your army is amazing feature i would 100% recommend this game to anyone who enjoyed the first and to anyone who is just getting in to the game. But the game is'nt just sunshine and rainbows there arew some annoying part of the game like some times when im runing or fighting my character would go to a direction i didnt not put the input for. Like for an example i was pushing the control stick forward and trying to attack a captainmy character would attack to my right itting a grunt or when im trying to climb a ledge he would grab on to the one i wanted him to these were more minor inconvenences and there are also some side misson that seemed to drag on it still was fun
