    This is a great MOBA experience very well adapted to mobile gaming. It needs more content, but so far the foundations are solid.

    A very interesting way to spend our time before The Witcher III arrives next May.

    It's perfect for the mobile platforms, as the quick matches can really be a relief while waiting for the next bus.

    A decent multiplayer mobile experience that manages to combine the domination mechanic with more traditional MOBA systems. As of right now, it still needs quite a bit of work in terms of the movement and online lag, but quite a few updates have already been rolled out, so things might get improved soon.

    Quite enjoyable, but it fails in key aspects. Online is not stable and it lacks content to support the experience for a long time.

    The Witcher Battle Arena might look pretty, but it's all too simple and lacking in fun.

    For now this game is little more than a noble, albeit misguided attempt to make a MOBA ideally suited to mobile platforms.

    Obviously this mobile MOBA isn't going to be able to beat out it's competition on PC, but there's a solid enough game here to scratch thatObviously this mobile MOBA isn't going to be able to beat out it's competition on PC, but there's a solid enough game here to scratch that competitive itch when you're away from home. Even better is that it's free-to-play and has a Witcher skin.

    The gameplay has you capturing and holding control points in order to run down the other team's score, whether they be real people or AI. It's not a very large game. Only two maps, one game mode, and a handful of playable characters. There's enough here though to make it worth playing on the go. Matches can go on a little long for a mobile game so be sure to have a little time set aside.

    The only real issue this mobile MOBA has is with the touch controls. They can just make getting around the map a touch awkward, but it's not that bad. Overall this is a great attempt at bringing a MOBA to a mobile device. It's another solid way of taking the Witcher brand into a new type of game.

    I give "The Witcher: Battle Arena" an 8.5/10.
