This past Tuesday Shadow of War was released in stores. After the success of the it's predecessor, Shadow of Mordor, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I must have gotten at least 3 to 5 months worth of game time making it one of my more favorite titles to play.

It wasn't until a friend recommended the original title to me before I knew the game existed. After picking it up almost a year after it's initial release I was hooked. It took a few days to get used to the game mechanics but it wasn't too challenging since it's similar to that of Assassin's Creed.

Once I understood the game as a whole I found it to be like waking up within the matrix. I knew how to manipulate enemies and control territory on the game map and as simple as that sounds, it's my favorite aspect of any game.

Did you play the original game? Are you currently playing the new title Shadow of War? Let me know in the comments below.
