    Heroes has a ton of depth, it's very well balanced (though not perfect), and nearly every cast member is a blast to play. It achieves almost everything it sets out to accomplish, so I really hope it catches on with the non-believers and continues to grow.

    Heroes of the Storm Has some small flaws (mainly associated with micro-transactions and the technical side) but all in all is a very good game. It doesn't copy things from other games and freshens up the MOBA genre in a really satisfying way. While playing HOTS I have never felt alienated, bored or unnecessary.

    I can't recommend Heroes of the Storm's friendly approach enough.

    If you’re both a fan of the MOBA genre and Blizzard’s various properties, there’s no reason you shouldn’t check Heroes of the Storm out. It may seem like Blizzard’s just got another “me too” on its hands at first glance, but there’s enough to set this MOBA apart from the rest and it all combines together to make for a distinct and thoroughly fun experience that no fan of the genre should miss.
  5. Heroes of the Storm offers a different MOBA experience with iconic Blizzard characters. Heroes of the Storm doesn’t contain gold and gold farm, level based character progress, and inventory system unlike other MOBA’s. It has it's own cleverly designed rules.

    The most any studio has done to open up a complex genre to a new audience. Inviting, entertaining, and deceptively deep.

    Perhaps with time Heroes of the Storm can age into something great, for now it’s worth checking out if you want to experience a different take on a popular genre.
