They forge a new Ring of Power which will help them to amass an army to fight against Sauron. The game is built upon the “Nemesis System” which was introduced in its previous game the Shadow of Mordor. This allowed Talion to gain followers from several races of Middle-earth which include Uruks and Ologs and plan for some complex strategies and using that in their missions.
Shadow of war received a kind of mixed critics but the positive response was more. The gameplay and the nemesis system helped the game to receive good response from critics but the story-line and other changes that were made to establish the characters were not appreciated.
The game is set in an open game environment and is played with the perspective of third person.

Overall take on the game
The game has good graphics and is best for those who love action. The gameplay of the game is interestingly great. Even the story-line of the game has helped in improving the popularity of the game.
Inclusion of the mini games is making the game more fun to play. The game surely guarantees fun for many hours. The main highlight of the game is that it has become more role- playing centric (that means the characters of the game have been established in more efficient way) which has been appreciated by many. If you love playing video games then you must try playing this game at least once.
