    Very few heroes, very few maps, a steep learning curve, and no single player are Demigod's downfalls. It's just a bad game. There is very little to like.

    This game is complete utter crap, it has no strategical depth and is deliberately made to either steal money from DotA players or get people who have never played DotA to play this game without realising how bad it is, if you compare.

    Had high hopes but have been disappointed. The game isn't polished as many say, and it doesn't live up to it's predecessor, DOTA. But what's really a problem, is the god-forsaken peer to peer system. Expect to sit around for 10-15 minutes to find games. I mean, sometimes they will load up fairly quickly, but at the moment, I've been waiting over 20 minutes to try Had high hopes but have been disappointed.

Telephone tech support suspended because of the launch of the new title forced you to use slow e-mail support that took days or weeks depending on your issue. Network play was bad and then became horrible after a slew of patches; one made the game constantly crash when you couldn't connect to other players. Don't know how many patches they're up to now (both client and server even though it's a bad p2p setup) but it seems to be a little better with perhaps a 60% success rate at getting a game going. Users' machines, port forwarding (like almost all UDP!) connections, whatever is being blamed but it's the network element that is broken. Some people had no issues and then had issues after certain patches. Those with NAT in the EU beware and those in the US with DSL may also run into issues, still. Just check out their forums. Today is ANOTHER patch day! Microsoft has NOTHING compared to them!!! Expand

    No single player mode, no tutorial, steep learning curve, connectivity issues, and only a half dozen maps. This isn't a good game. It's like the disappointing multiplayer mode of a good game.

    Update for 2012: The game crashes on start, crashes randomly ingame and support is currently non-existent. There is no reason whatsoever to buy it or play it.

    The game is great, the company that coded it and published it? A joke. No QA. Whining CEO's. Very sad. This could've had a lot of potential. Please GPG, sell this off to a good company.

    As fun as it is to white-knight an indie company like Stardock, Demigod is simply not a good game. The connection problems continue to plague it over a month after release, so the reviews that panned it for connectivity issues are absolutely right. More importantly, the game lacks content, even in comparison to free custom maps. It suffers performance issues for no apparent reason, as As fun as it is to white-knight an indie company like Stardock, Demigod is simply not a good game.

More importantly, the game lacks content, even in comparison to free custom maps. It suffers performance issues for no apparent reason, as well as CTD bugs and balance issues. It has no meaningful single-player and the multiplayer modes are mostly unenjoyable fluff. There really is no reason to buy this if you have even a passing interest in DoTA or similar maps, because you will find more content there. Wait for League of Legends. Expand

    they would know this game is simple without last hits, denies, and jungling. So lets get this straight guys. If you are new to this style of game, never played DotA, yes, it is fun. It is fun to see highly detailed monsters level up and destroy other monsters. It is fun to watch yourself completely roll over competitors. But keep in mind that this is a VERY simplistic game.

Use this only as an introduction to the genre, as it takes everything that made AoS games difficult and cuts it out, leaving only the fatty parts. What does this mean? It means this game will never be competitive. This game will not have the effect of Counter-strike or DotA. What this means is that the multiplayer base will probably die within a year or so. Gameplay 6.0 All issues aside, the game is fun, and is targeted at newcomers to the genre. This game is a great introduction to the genre. But if I were you, I would wait for League of Legends.

  1. The multiplayer focus and a lack of a more traditional, story-driven solo campaign may not sit as well with all players, but the streamlined action-RPG gameplay proves to be seriously addictive in short bursts. The development team managed to inject a surprising level of gameplay depth into such a pared-down RTS design, and it works out.
  2. Online connection issues and a dearth of content keep this fun hybrid game from reigning supreme.

    If you're interested in throwing down cash for a beta and maybe getting in some practice before things get smoothed out, go ahead and bump that score up a letter grade. Anybody else should find something else to do until then.
