The developers now have my attention, I just need to see some gameplay now.

I still have my doubts about this game, even though it does look interesting.

I'm not buying the "nemesis system" thing. How often are players going to let enemies live? Are we going to be shoehorned into creating nemeses?

The combat also looks very rough, but the "Pre-Alpha Code" watermark gives me some hope that it'll be cleaned-up.

The wraith abilities look pretty interesting, however. If the game pulls off free-roam well, improves the combat, and does more to show off the nemesis system, I'll probably buy this.

As a LoTR fan, incredibly disappointed. I'm surprised this even made it past the Tolkien estate. I guess they officially don't care anymore.

How it completely ****s all over the lore? It's not just "liberties", it's a complete disregard for the entire thing. It's obvious they're just using the IP for exposure and for not having to spend any time creating a unique setting.

You can't be a serious LoTR fan and find this whole premise acceptable. It's just not LoTR. I'd be much more excited about it if it was a unique IP.

Let's be honest here. Were orcs ever the scariest thing in Mordor?
