I bought the complete edition with all DLCs on the Humble Bundle store for about 15$. Younger, I played similar games a little but I've not played any since years. I played the default game mode using all default settings (difficulty beginner). Usually I rarely rush a game but this game feels more like work than entertainment so I rushed it like I would rush finishing a task and it took me 2 days (16 hours) to finish the game.
I'm pretty new to Civilization so obviously I don't review it like a fan would. Personally, I think that they should change the default settings to make the game simpler/shorter and more fast paced. Despite the in-game tips provided, the complexity felt overwhelming. I know you can somehow change the settings but I would like the default settings to be more "user-friendly". I'm a programmer and I hardly see how a casual gamer can start being interested in this game, except a kid with tons of hours in front of him. Personally, I would prefer a game where the focus is more on the war and less on culture/religion/faith/science/happiness.… Expand

This being said :
- This is one the only game where I felt like putting on sunglasses just to dim the bloom.
- It feels like a cheap version of Assassins Creed in First Person because you spend all the game jumping from one building to another or trying to climp a building
- Another problem is how draconian the detection system is when interacting with objects, if you're off by a hair. You're dead.
- Bad control scheme : they should have used what most games use : X to jump, O to crouch, etc.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.3Apr 30, 2015I prefer this game to other MOBA because this one is 3rd person, which makes it more immersive. Arena is fast paced but I think ConquestI prefer this game to other MOBA because this one is 3rd person, which makes it more immersive. Arena is fast paced but I think Conquest should be 10vs10 or 7vs7. Also when one person is AFK, the game quickly becomes unfair. For a free game, it's quite good but well I think that if you really want to enjoy it, you will want to buy it, 30$ seems fair. This being said, unlocking one god seems to take forever, I've about 3500 flavors after at least playing at least 8 hours while a god is 5000. I guess that the best to really enjoy this game would be to play in a real team (clan). I can see how powerful it can be to make smart use of powers (one freeze the opponent while the other use a massive slow attack) and to be many to attack a single opponent. I would probably really enjoy playing competitive and learning all Gods skills. This being said, without having a clan to play with and being limited to only a few Gods (free to play), the game becomes quickly repetitive and boring. I prefer to play a game like battlefield where you can revive other players, heal yourself and where the attacks (guns) are more clearly defined. Indeed, in SMITE, it's often hard to understand how you got killed because there are some many Gods/attacks.… Expand

I don't like this kind of game (MOBA), here is why :
- Boring : click click click ... next ... (repetitive)
- There’s too much going on (chaos)
- God view is not immersive
- It looks like it's made for kids
- First Person Shooters feel much more immersive, challenging (skill based) and fun… Expand

I prefer CSS. I've started playing CS1.3 15 years ago and I liked the graphic improvements and new maps in CSS but I don't really get why CS:GO seems popular. As of 2015, you can get BF3/BF4 for almost the same price as CS:GO. I can understand that CS:GO can be more competitive since it's infantry only, etc. It's probably the only good point in my humble opinion. The graphics look outdated, the UI is so-so, people are still playing the same maps 15 years later ... I don't get it. I'm pretty sure if you take the time to search, you can find some interesting modes and maps in this game but I've not found any. Personally I prefer Battlefield and Titanfall, sold at the same price currently. There is no killcam, come on. The casual mode is the one I prefer so far, I hate friendly fire. This FPS rewards camping too much when compared because of the size of the maps, the weapon available and the spread when moving.… Expand

I'm not sure I get why EA does this but I won't complain !
There are so many games being released, it's hard to find the time to play all great games
(great = over 80% on metacritic usually).
So I guess they prefer to make some money than no money by lowering the price.
It's great because it increase the number of players and it makes it more interesting for everyone.
The bad side (for them) is that less and less people will pre-order games.
Anyway I hope this trend continues since it's quite cool for gamers who are able to wait a little !
Others just have to blame themselves, would you marry someone before meeting/seeing her ?
Well it's the same with video games, you should wait to see reviews and gameplay before buying.
So I think the game itself is great.
It feels like Battlefield but with more action (too much?) and it's quite refreshing to play with Titans
(reminds me of tanks in BF)
The graphics are great.
I will update my review when I will have played more but so far so good.… Expand

This way you will have the same controls as in most games like COD.
I played at medium difficulty with partial aim assist. Both are default, I suggest you keep these settings.
I really appreciated the story, the voice acting as well as the gameplay.
I liked the attitude and the cynicism of Max Payne.
It's the first time I play a Max Payne title.
I was not expecting much from this game but I have been really pleased and it's in my top 10 PS3 game for sure !
I expected an open world like most Rockstar Games but I preferred the way they did it : more action, less stroll.… Expand

The game is fun, graphics are good, etc. But at the same time, I don't see a lot of replay value. The levels are quite similar so it's quite repetitive but still fun. Also, the game is challenging but I almost never "died" so it's not really hard. It takes about 5 hours to finish all levels and get all trophies. But after that, I don't have much interest in the leaderboard which is quite huge as you can imagine. Some kind of multiplayer would be great for this game. I think great games could be created using the Pac Man concept, this one is nice for nostalgic players and I look forward showing this game to my kids ...… Expand
