Heart throbbing slice and dice action… check! Epic mood altering music check!  Gripping in depth story…?

Gameplay: 9/10

The controls were somewhat easy to learn, since there was so many skills I often found myself forgetting what combination of buttons to press but eventually was able to master it. Getting to point A from point B was also easy, specially when you have the ability to ride some of the animals of middle earth. The skill tree gives you lots of options to choose from even though at the end of the game you will eventually unlock them all. The camera is a little bit hard to control but I feel like most games are like that now any way so it was ok.mordor1

Visual: 10/10

visually awing game. The landscapes, the blood, the dirt even the ethereal plane! Everything looked and felt unique and riveting.  Each Uruk had a scar, tattoo or hair different about them, giving you variety in a open world game.

Music: 10/10

Traditional LOTR music consisting of big war drums, angry violins and the menacing hum of an all male opera, lets not also forget them crazy chimes. The music and score is epic and heart racing. Fits like a glove for this game.

Story: 7/10

It left me wanting more like a whole lot more. The Story in itself was awesome (short) and gut retching, with that being said anyone can beat the game in a few hours. Without the plethora of side quest and things to hunt and gather the fun would have ended a long time ago.

Overview: 9/10

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is an addictive game. The combat is stellar, you will be blocking, attacking, dodging, shooting arrows, running and hiding. The stealth aspect is fun and sexy, as you sneak up on unsuspecting Uruk and kill them without alerting the others. The story is lacking but there is no other game that I have played that is like Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. It definitely deservers to be one of the best games of the year.

Persona 5

PERSONA!!! We all know what I am talking about here. This sleek and sexy game had my head turning and me questioning everything I knew about video games today.

Gameplay: 9/10

Despite the camera issues I had while trying to sneak around in the palace everything went smoothly. From casting game changing spells to batting baseballs in the batting cage. Persona 5 also has a lot of dialogue which you are able to skip at anytime….options.

Visuals: 10/10

Persona 5 is a visually stunning game. The art work and the over the top design is masterfully done. While watching some cut scenes goosebumps seem to crawl up on my skin; Persona 5 is a Beautifully drawn anime like game.

Music: 9/10

A jazzy ensemble of bass, horns, guitars and more. The music In Persona 5 allows you to connect more in depth with the story. The jazzy battle music makes one feel hot and sexy while taking down the bad guys. I didn’t love all the music. In some areas the music was so boring it almost made the experience boring.

Story: 10/10

A soap opera never before done. The out the box thinking and intricacies of the story keeps anyone coming back for more. Each character has their own past and life that will prompt you to keeping going till the end.

Overview: 10/10

If RPGs are your thing you will love Persona 5. If you are looking for a great RPG to get into Person 5 is the best choice. The only way you could not like Persona 5 is if you don’t like RPGS. You are Living a life as a High School student thill shit starts happening. of course its up to you and the friends you meet along the way to help solve problems and save the day. You will laugh, you might cry, you will feel pumped from Persona 5.
