  1. I would like to see maybe a dlc or even sequel (if its as good as im hoping) with nemesis mode where You are the lowly orc rising through the ranks

  2. "Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
    Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
    Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
    One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
    In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
    One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
    One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
    In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie" -J.R.R Tolkien

  3. BULLSHIT! This representation of the game (and all earlier demos) are far more fleshed out versions of the game that we got. After the painfully short story, you are left with absolutely nothing to do, one of the final missions is to capture 5 war chiefs… alright that's fine if you had more to do once the story is finished, but no. When that is done you are left with cheap challenges and collectible, so trying to capture all leading Uruk becomes POINTLESS after that. Also the branding is alright, but is very ineffective, your control over non captain+ level Uruk is non existent, you can just make the slightly more aggressive, but only in their area of vision. So if you want to brand a bunch of Uruk to invade a fortress tough shit you can tell them where to go. Oh but you want to work with the in game mechanics and brand all the Uruk to fight the warchiefs and their bodyguards army vs them. LUL YOU STUPID?! The Uruk are again limited to their are so if you are attacked they won't help you unless you are painfully close to them, also Uruk bodyguards and warchiefs are Zerg Broodmothers that can literally summon a limitless pool grunts that quickly dispatch of your pathetic "army". Your control over the Captain+ characters is also rather poor. You either send them on a "kill" mission or you use them to "gain intel" which is pointless any higher ranking captain(elite+), bodyguard and warchief are immune to anything that isn't a combat finisher, so wraith stune and AA to win…. If you can, hold off on your urge to buy the game and wait for a price drop!

  4. I can see the AC and batman things but this game actually looks fun compared to AC. And yes the fighting system is based on the batman engine but it works well

  5. Does anyone else think this 'interviewer' is rude and obnoxious? What interviewer forgets his host's name??! Self -absorbed and RUDE.
