The nemesis system shines in this unwieldy, bloated, and occasionally magnificent fantasy epic.

A greatly expanded and improved action game let down by a dreadful story.

Similar to the way Batman: Arkham City built on the foundation of Arkham Asylum, Middle-earth: Shadow of War is bigger and more ambitious in scope than Shadow of Mordor, with great results. The way it expands the Nemesis system with far greater variety and fortress sieges makes even better use of the stand-out generated characters, and its battles with memorable uruk captains remain challenging all the way through the campaign and into the clever asynchronous multiplayer beyond.

A huge Lord of the Rings experience that's always enjoyable, although its scale leaves it straining at the seams at times.
