Editorial Reviews


"The computer game is titled Shadows of Mordor which probably reflects the adventure's desire not to be thought a rerun of the book, but a game more loosely based on that work and only keeping to the essential atmosphere of Middle Earth. They take another chance to distance themselves from the awe-inspiring and critical task of transposing Tolkien's masterpiece to the microcomputer in the style of the instructions, which have taken on a whimsical and self-deprecatory air. Have a look at this line from the introduction: 'The Shadows of Mordor is a brilliant piece of fantasy software thanks to the reworking of many of the game's systems by a highly trained team of idiots'.

If the intention is to show the reader that this adventure is, after all, only a game, they can rest assured this style certainly lowers expectations.

Although there are instances of idiocy to be found, let's not dwell here and instead consider the many fine aspects to this great game."
