Anyone playing it?
I've only clocked in about two hours, and I've yet to even touch the army crafting facet, but I'm not wholly impressed with it thus far 2bh.
Graphics are pretty abysmal. Is it just me or was the first instalment vastly superior in this department? Looks like discount tier pre-gen.
Controls are somewhat clunky. I remember the original being a bit more watertight than this. Opening was pretty weak too. We just gonna completely forget that we fucked up Sauron's shit in Shadow of Mordor, no? Okay.
I realise these are nitpicky details, but I can't help but notice them, and first impressions go along way. I do however enjoy the in depth customisation and I really don't know why people threw a temper tantrum over the micro transactions fiasco. They're completely optional components to the game in which you're essentially paying to have less fun. It's not exactly game breaking.
Hoping it picks up when I get to the real meat of the game, but what I've seen so far doesn't look that promising.
