Anybody else start playing this yet. Im using a RGH, playing off external HDD and the graphics look pretty poor. Im not usually a graphics whore and ill probably push through the game because I love LOTR. Anyone else having issues with the game so far?
Don't worry mate. You are not alone to this. Shadow of Mordor looks like it's made for the first XBOX and not for a 360. Poor graphics, bad textures, anti-aliasing is zero, pop-ups, slowdowns and so on. I played it for just 15 minutes and that's it. I erased it from my RGH console. I prefer to spend my time with the new Assassin's Creed (Rogue) which is far superior than the Mordor crap. I used to be a fan of the LOTR games as well but this one is ugly and the only thing it has in common with the LOTR saga...is the monsters!! Its developers tried to mimic Assassin's Creed but they failed 100%.

I only played 5 minutes of the 360 version and also noticed the crappy visuals. This is probably why they delayed the last gen version of the game. But hey... if you want the best experience, try upgrading your system.
