Fun Video Game, or Creative Imitatio?

Monolith Production’s Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor is a game that directly relates to J. R. R. Tolkien’s works of, The Silmarillion, The Hobbit, and even Lord of The Rings. The question when playing the game however is, is this video game true to form? Meaning, does everything mentioned or imagined fit into the world Tolkien created, or does it have continuity errors that make this game inconsistent with the lore of Middle-earth? I set out to figure out that very question.
