Each week, gamers around the world log onto digital distribution platform Steam, to get their latest gaming fix, and every week, Player Attack lets you know which games were the most popular.
Anyone who’s heard anything about Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor should be remarkably unsurprised by this week’s #1 title. It’s taken the world by storm – and surprising those who might have written it off earlier as “just another hobbit game”. It’s not just that it looks good (although it certainly does), but the team at Monolith have created the sort of game that doesn’t come along very often. A unique “nemesis” system that means each enemy is custom-crafted for your gameplay experience coupled with a story that fits in neatly between Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit (but which doesn’t require advanced Tolkien knowledge), this one should be at the top of your must-play list as well as the best-seller lists.
Fight through Mordor and uncover the truth of the spirit that compels you, discover the origins of the Rings of Power, build your legend and ultimately confront the evil of Sauron in this new chronicle of Middle-earth.
