This title has definitely had its share of discount around that range. Great pick for those who couldn't grab any of the other deals.

Some of the Orcs in this game say some funny ass stuff, man. It's a fun game, story is a little disjointed and the climax leaves much to be desired but I'd say its still worth a play. Act IV, The Shadow Wars, is a pain in the ass, and totally thrown in just to tempt people to buy microtransactions to lessen the grind.

Thats the part of the game that always makes me freeze from purchasing it. Originally, I bought shadow of mordor GOTY in anticipation for it, but decided to skip it when I realized that ending was blocking the way from finishing the game.

The game is easy and micro transactions are in no way necessary. It’s basically pay to shave off 10 hours of the game. I don’t see the problem. If some shmuck wants to pay money to play less of the game that’s their deal. Amazing game.

Really? I assumed it was a grind fest at the ending to press you to pay up? That's not the case.

Is this for the entire game or just the base vanilla version? i.e. Do you still have to pay another $30 to complete the game? Man I hate all these digital versions of games these days... just sell me a game.

That's the base game only.

 

If you want all DLC, you'll either have to buy the "Gold Edition" (which has a "season pass" for all past and future DLC expansions), or buy the base game and then buy the DLC piecemeal (or all at once with the $39.99 "Expansion Pass.")

 

SOM GOTY was going for ~$10 on Xbox Live and PSN at Black Friday the year after it launched, so if you can wait 9 more months you'll probably save some significant cash.

The first 4 chapters are the actual story and not grindy. The 5th chapter is kinda repetitive and is really only for the new war mechanics.

Leveling is the only grindy part of the game because to get XP you have to do the orc missions and the XP scales with their level so you need to basically farm orcs to a high level in order to level up this century. You are heavily incentivized to use the XP boosts but the weeklies will give you enough currency and boxes for them. Even after that it was still grindy because you have to do the orc missions because the other XP sources are negligible. I really enjoyed the game, but getting max level was irritating.

Edit* This is applies to like the last 15 - 20 levels you need to hit the max, the leveling through the story was fine
