Artifact - 7 Minutes Of Exclusive Gameplay
Dec 5, 2018Artifact pulls a ton of flavor from Dota 2, but it’s not necessarily a game for Dota 2 players. Artifact is instead a highly cerebral card game of push and pull, with intense resource allocation and randomization management. Artifact is absolutely not for everyone, but it excels at creating a crazy strategy cocktail pulling from every bottle on the shelf. For card game fans, Artifact is not to be missed.
CD-ActionFeb 6, 2019Innovative mechanics designed by Richard Garfield (Magic: The Gathering), rules that you can grasp after just a couple of minutes, clear interface – Artifact is a great game. It’s a shame that it’s huge esports potential can be squandered, because Valve doesn’t seem to care for it enough to implement progression systems, leagues, rankings or means to comfortably communicate with rivals outside an invitation-only friendly tournament.

Dec 3, 2018Artifact is as hard-core as Dota2 and you might feel exhausted when you finish a single round which usually would last half an hour. The greedy economy system is lacking in long-term reward and it gives players no choice but to spend more and more money. But despite all those flaws, Artifact is also an innovative game which fuses basic MOBA mechanics and TCG rules together, and those elements actually work well. It's still full of potential.
Dec 12, 2018The game offers a great experience with an intense concept. The input mapping is hard to handle at first but offers, with a controller, everything you can do with keyboard and mouse. Sadly, the game suffers from technical issues, especially clipping and framerate capping.

It is not intended for the casual gamer looking for a bit of fun and challenge. It is intended for the elite streamers and competitive players that they had the nerve to provide most all the beta keys to. You the casual gamer were not invited because had you been, you would see it in it's true form, and not purchase it. For the casual gamer it is an enticement to sink your dollars into in hopes to create a few decks. You will have no incentive to play. No rewards. No quest. No Ladder. No nothing, even the visual cards are unexciting. Play HS or another form of entertainment don't waste your time funding the tournaments in which you are most unlikely to play in. I hope the game fails so hard and that all the streamers pumping it up, for them fall flat on their ass.… Expand
