The main feature in ME:SOM is its Nemesis System, and it hits it right on the forge. Uruks rise to power and your objective is to liquidate them of their rank. The twist is that when you die, the same Orc that killed you will get promoted, and eventually even become a captain. Then, when you go back to get your revenge kill, you’ll cross blades and he will look you in the eye and say something like, “I killed you… I don’t understand.” Or they wil... Read More

Honestly i didn't like it at all. Played around 8 hours and quit.

So the game basically discourages exploration. Unless... Read More

Familiar combat gameplay with a unique nemesis system. The result is very entertaining, albeit unpolished. Combat and movement works for the most part, but malfunctions in frustrating ways from time to time.

- Dynamic nemesis system that makes the world feel a lot more alive.
Negative points
- Lack of gameplay authoring makes it diffcult to balance main story progression and side objectives. - Infinite Uruk spawning in alarmed forts is pretty immersion breaking. - Playing with a optional ... Read More

Super fun gameplay, the story was whatever but damn was it satisfying to kind of play it how I wanted. Though I will admit that it abruptly ended fur sure. Nice experience though, like a more brutal Assassin's Creed.
