What do you guys think of this game? I kind of hyped a bit at first when i saw it, because I like The Lord of the Rings and for th first time I felt like if they were making something new, with what they call the "nemesis system" AKA randomized enemies.
I know many will say it looks like Assassins Creed, and my question would be... Do you guys think a game can use previously made mechanics but still be a good game? Take Batman Arkham city as an example, it uses combat system from Arkham Asylum but with many more improvements and a good Story in order to be even better than the original. We also have Arkham Origins, which copied the mechanics from city with no innovations at all from my point of view and that made it the worst of the saga.
So to sum up: What do you think about the game? and Do you think a good game can be base upon other's mechanics? or it should be entirely innovative?
BTW I leave you a vid here (I don't know how to embed it)
