    A great PvP game that offers some of the most intriguing and nuanced team combat around.

    All of which makes Dota 2 an absurd video game to try to recommend. Being the largest and most immediately open MOBA, with Valve showcasing its talent for rewarding and fostering a community, it demands and offers more than literally any game I can think of. It's almost more comparable to basketball than most commercial games. Something utterly opaque bearing no endgame, but that could happily fill every waking second of your life.

    You’ll need knowledge, skill, and a smidge of spider-sense. Friends to learn with are a must, and don’t be deceived by the lack of a pricetag: Dota 2 will cost you hundreds of hours.

    There's a steep, daunting learning curve, but DOTA 2 offers one of the most rewarding game experiences you can find on PC today. [Sept 2013, p.80]

    A strategic adrenaline rush, but the graphics are dated and the learning curve is steep.

    Also there is a much better community behind Dota that will ween you in and teach you how to play.

    This game improved so much since it was released on the beta. There are over 90 heroes to choose from currently and the gamplay is as intenceThis game improved so much since it was released on the beta. There are over 90 heroes to choose from currently and the gamplay is as intence and as rewarding as DOTA 1. I know alot of people will be hesitant to try it at first but there has been a new tutorial system implemented in DOTA 2 and I think it will help new comers. I know some people who play LOL might bash in this game, but both games are compleatly different. Its like comparing COD and Battlefield, they are so different that connot be compared. (no preference on either game, I think bot of them are good) Give this game a try, the learning curve is very steep but it is rewarding when you learn. I think this is the best gave valve has ever developed and has been the most played game on steam ever since the second year of beta development. Try it out, its free and badass! Expand

    I've spent nearly 2000 hours playing on this game. Sometimes i get frustrated (and by sometimes i mean almost every time) but when i get intoI've spent nearly 2000 hours playing on this game. Sometimes i get frustrated (and by sometimes i mean almost every time) but when i get into a normal match with normal people whos temper doesn't go through the roof and where everyone is nice enough to not say something stupid i enjoy the game greatly. It's very entertaining and a great time killer, i agree the community is very hostile to each other but there are some few people out there who is kind and helpful to the newbies. The game needs alot of work but it certainly does a good job entertaining me. Expand
