The GoodI like the fact that I can have up to 16 characters in the tavern and select which of them (up to 6) to take on my next dungeon romp. I like the spellcasting (having to type the spell words like "KOMINATOK" instead of pointing and clicking in a spellbook). The list of items in this game is impressive. And the game's concept of having the characters age (and yes, it's very easy for a character to age enough to die of old age) is interesting. I think that the author of Mordor: Depths of Dejenol got some of his ideas from Oubliette.
The BadThe interface is somewhat lacking. For example, if the user presses an invalid key during a battle, the game just skips the combat options for the current character and goes to the next. In addition, the game does not update the screen after a character casts a spell or is wounded (you have to press a certain key to refresh unless you wait until the end of the battle).
