The original cast return alongside new voice talents, all of which put in fine performances across the board. The music is brilliant too, and the effects are perfect.
A marked improvement over Shadow of Mordor, War injects variety into its locations, while cut-scenes look fantastic. In-game, Talion's face still looks a little bit low-res.
Mash together Assassin's Creed's traversal and Batman: Arkham's combat, then throw on some sprinkles and pop a cherry on top. You've just made Shadow of War.
There's easily tens of hours of gameplay in here, and it's all brilliant. The Nemesis System is still unique, proving to be Shadow of War's ace in the hole. Issues? The camera can be a pain and the story pacing is a bit off, and you can very rarely get stuck on scenery, but you can just Shadow Strike out of it when you do.
A superb list that casts its net over the entirety of the game, taking in numerous aspects of the Nemesis System, story progression, collectibles and loads more.
