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.
