The game’s Washington based producers have been at the forefront of game development with classic titles such as F.E.A.R. and F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin. Their newest addition to the list is a different genre of gaming altogether, and is sure to provide hours of pure gaming ecstasy. In Shadow of Mordor you play as Talion, a ranger stationed at the Black Gate that gets attacked by agents of Sauron. By means of a clever plot twist, your character is granted various supernatural abilities that enable you to cause chaos in Mordor and make life difficult for orcs in order to seek vengeance for past events.

The game utilises a revolutionary artificial intelligence generator, codenamed the Nemesis system, that does away with generically spawned enemies and creates a tailor-made gaming experience by letting your enemies remember you and learn from past experiences. They will also seek revenge for previous encounters. This type of gaming technology creates massive replay value as the game changes every time you play.

The game encapsulates beautifully rendered models and attention to detail with amazing gameplay, making free running and dynamic free-flow fighting an absolute pleasure. The ability to bend orcs to your will is a real treat and enables you to create your own army able to ambush at your command.
