5 / 10.0 - Son of Nor
Apr 28, 2015

Somewhere in Son of Nor, there's a great game desperately trying to get out, but ultimately the game suffers from poor execution and a lack of polish.

If you already own Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel!, you probably won't get much out of The Handsome Collection. Anyone else will likely have a great time with its hours and hours of addictive RPG gameplay.

Every aspect of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor feels like it was designed to be the ultimate power trip. At the same time, thanks to nemesis, your actions have very direct and visible consequences on the world you inhabit. It's this combination that makes Shadow of Mordor not only an excellent game, but one which sets the standard for all open-world titles to come.

Risen 3 never ventures into uncharted territory, but remains enjoyable thanks to a beautiful and varied world, solid questing and interesting level design.
