    Overall, it is a good MOBA game and it feels complete. The minus points are given for the detailed textures on both the map and characters. It is quite easy to get a moment of confusion when guardians (players) clash, along with soldiers (minions) and animations leaving you in sticky situations despite your reflexes and skills. To me, MOBA games should have simpler designs. I wouldn't seeOverall, it is a good MOBA game and it feels complete.

To me, MOBA games should have simpler designs. I wouldn't see this game becoming an e-sport like other MOBAs on the PC/current market albeit it is worth the price tag and will definitely keep you entertained for quite some time. Whether you're a fan of the genre or not, give it a go with the trial which might just sell you. It isn't without its flaws, some balance and response issues but they are not imposed enough (and certainly not permanent) to stop the player from thoroughly enjoying their experience. Expand

    For $15 it's not a bad game. But at least so far, the long lobby waits, often unfilled player slots (about half the time half the "players" are AI), lag times, and the periodic disconnects (so far for me about every 3rd game) are very frustrating. When I can stay connected and the game is actually filled with real players, it's a blast, despite my total lack of tactical and or MOBA skillsFor $15 it's not a bad game.

Hopefully the developer will straighten out the server and matchmaking issues and the player base will remain strong enough for me to enjoy it for at least a couple of weeks. Expand

    Update for those interested in playing on PS3. The number of people playing can be a bit low at times. Today (10pm EST weeknight) I had half AI on my team. My connection has at least been stable, though. No disconnects. Gameplay, wise, I agree with most other comments here. I am a longtime MOBA player (Dota, HoN, LoL, Dota 2) and this is a pretty decent game for being on a console. It'sUpdate for those interested in playing on PS3. The number of people playing can be a bit low at times. Today (10pm EST weeknight) I had half AI on my team. My connection has at least been stable, though. No disconnects. Gameplay, wise, I agree with most other comments here. I am a longtime MOBA player (Dota, HoN, LoL, Dota 2) and this is a pretty decent game for being on a console. It's very simplified, but the mechanics you would want are all there. Laning, pushing, ganking, even a bit of jungling/rune control. The lack of items removes some of the complexity, but makes for a more smooth, less involved game. Good for newbies or MOBA fans who just want to escape the raging in the current game they're playing. This is much more relaxed. I would consider getting this for 360, but I don't want to have to get an Gold subscription. I really don't play my 360 that much (I am mostly a PC Gamer). It's a shame this game seems to be lacking a community, because I would like to play it more for PS3. Expand

    This is a well thought out game with a huge amount of complexity. Unfortunately the steep learning curve means the ladder to the top looks almost impossible to climb when you first begin.

    Great fun and an excellent excuse to recreate your very own Helm's Deep with friends. [March 2013, p.85]
  3. As a Lord of the Rings property, this is disappointing. [Feb 2013, p.112]
