So I knew about this game coming out but I didn't really think much of it. LotR games are typically average at best and usually not even that good. But apparently this one is really good and several of my friends have told me it's easily the best original new generation console game to hit shelves so far? Who knew? Not an intimidating list of competition I realize. I've heard the gameplay get compared to the Batman games a lot.
I might pick it up this weekend. I need something to tide me over until Inquisition comes out, or the next six weeks could wind up being pretty dreary. I like the idea that any orc that manages to kill you gets more powerful and advances within their ranks.
