Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is looking stabby

Runes and weapons trailer

This video for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is supposed to be about runes, which are dropped by fallen foes and used to upgrade protagonist Talion's weapons. And it is.

But I can't not concentrate on how ridiculous the action is in this two-minute clip. So much stabbing. I haven't made my up mind about Shadow of Mordor yet -- I'll need to see more uncut footage before doing so -- but I'm not feeling what Monolith has shown thus far.

As Destructoid commenter Scrustle said four months ago, "Assassin's Creed: Middle-earth."
