MASSIVE END GAME SPOILERS BELLOW VVV
Ok so for a game with a pretty weak story, the ending was really good and made me a tad emotional with the closure of characters and links to the movies/books etc. So at the end of the 3rd act, Talion doesn't agree with Cellibrimbor's idea of world domination so Cell takes away his Wraith power and gives it to some elf women I forgot the name of. Then the dying talion has a speech with Shelob and puts on a Ring Wraith's ring, and for the next whole act you just have the same powers but like in 'bad guy form' or Wraith form whatever. Essentially Talion becomes corrupt and replaces the Wraith he killed as the 9th Wraith. Meanwhile Cell and elf woman fight Sauron and Sauron traps Cell with him in this never ending battle in the eye tower, and the women just goes lol. Then it explains their connection to the Lotr stories and shows how Talion was actually the Ring Wraith that was killed when hit by a chunk of mount doom as it exploded and we see that in the movie. And Cell died along with Sauron as the eye tower fell when frodo destroyed the ring. It was very bittersweet and u feel happy for Talion and basically nothing for Cell cos he became an ass for the last part of the game so yeh. And then there's a scene of Talion in what im guessing is heaven and he drops his weapons and walks into a floral mordor it looks like, with some sad pop song playing which I thought was weird but made me feel sad but real happy for him. And I liked the ties to the Lotr plots too so yeh. Was interesting to see Talion was one of those wraiths always fighting them in the lotr stories hah. But it was good. Could be better. But good. Nuff said
