- Summary: Players choose from a selection of mythical gods, join session-based arena combat, and use custom powers and team tactics against other player-controlled gods and non-player controlled minions.
Apr 14, 2014I've been playing mobas for a few years now and smite has done a great job with champions. Skillful, distinct and exciting. The game is free to play - a plus - so you can try it. A bonus: the graphics and art of the game are much better than the usual for a moba.
I was surprised by the different game modes available in the game. I bet other games will try to copy these game modes. They add a lot of new strategy to the game.
Before playing smite, I didn't realize how much better first person is compared to overhead/top-down type view. First person allows you a faster play style and also more strategy (maneuvering behind others). I wonder if other mobas will try to create a first person view for their games.
My new favorite moba and well worth a try.… Expand
Mar 26, 2014I've played Smite since closed beta in Summer 2012 and I liked the gameplay already back then. But Smite has changed and improved so much over the last year. I've never seen any other game develop at such a rapid speed and only get better with each update. The team behind Smite cares for this game as much as the player does.
The crazy thing is, that the game still feels refreshing and exciting to me. And that's coming from a guy who has played it for almost 2 years now. I never thought I'd get so hooked on a MOBA. But I did!
Smite's gameplay is action-packed, engaging and most importantly just really fun. The art direction and theme on the game is also great - nothing beats playing gods and godesses of the ancient time.… Expand
Mar 30, 2014Played a bit of LoL and DOTA 2, liked them but find them inaccessible. Then started playing IC and really enjoyed that due to the subject matter and really got into the game, not great at it but learning. Thought that would be it for me moving forward till I played Smite.
Great game, very playable, nice character design and lots of good game options. Free to play with a few champions but you can buy all the gods for £20!
The one downside of all the MOBAs I have played, the idiots who play them. So far only met a couple of really foul individuals but its the internet right! If you are looking for what feels like a more action orientated MOBA then this is it.… Expand
May 4, 2014SMITE is among the many recent MOBA games that tries to piggy-back on the success of League of Legends and DOTA that falls horribly short of being a quality game. The characters and their abilities are completely unoriginal (some are even almost direct copies of League champions), the items are astonishingly derivative of LOL, the map is boring and what little innovation they bring to the table is mired in mediocre graphics and boring gameplay.
League and DOTA are more original, more innovative, and honestly just a lot more fun than Smite. Don't believe the 300 people who for some reason think otherwise… Expand
