The game is freaking awesome, very detailed, and very hands on and I mean fingers on the button all the time when doing some wicked wicked moves and combos. Got the game after release day pretty quick THANKS MIGHTYAPE (Thumbs Up). Its an Open World game with a bit of A.Creed gameplay but this in LOTR style. The characters are awesome and the enemy is very detailed as well. Its has lots and I mean lots of side-missions and few main-mission so its best to do the side-missions to get some good gear because it gets abit tricky. I kid you not as soon as you do some of the main-missions be prepared to command an army and bend the enemy to your will. The storyline is pretty awesome and the creation of the rings of power was a surprise bringer for me (Cut Scene to watch it). OVERALL, an awesome game to add to my collection of favorites and looking forward to the DLC coming out soon.
