    Ruined King: A League of Legends story is one of the best turn-based RPGs released this year. Featuring extremely smooth mechanics and exquisite visuals, Ruined King can keep players glued to their gaming chairs for hours at a time. How much League of Legends lore Ruined King reveals is easily the cherry on top, too. There's a thrilling story within for everyone who chooses to give the game a try, one that comes highly recommended.

    I don’t know whether to recommend Ruined King: A League of Legends Story for the interesting story set in the League of Legends universe or because it's one of the best turn-based RPGs I played since quite a while. I’d stick towards the second reason, leaving the first one as the icing on the cake. An engaging storyline, beautifully characterized and customizable characters, and a combat system that will test your tactical skills await you, especially if you dare to play at higher difficulty levels. Will Runeterra’s champions become the new Avengers?

    Ruined King is an RPG with undoubted qualities. Thanks to the fundamental artistic contribution of Joe "Mad" Madureira, the work manages to capture the attention of both fans who live permanently in Runeterra and newbies who have never heard of League of Legends.

    After 3 hours, Ruined King: A League of Legends Story becomes enjoyable to play, with combat and exploration phases that flow really well. The balance between "puzzles" and fighting is quite good, and if you add to that a lot of side quests, crafting and lore, you get a game that should please dungeon crawler, turn-based RPG or League of Legends aficionados. On the other hand, the complexity of the combat interface can be a bit daunting, especially at the beginning. Connoisseurs and those who played Battle Chasers Nightwar will not be disoriented and should have a good time.

    If you crave more after Arcane you’d do right by Airship Syndicate’s latest RPG outing. Even if you aren’t a League aficionado, you’ll feel right at home here it’s friendly to new players. You’ll just notice a bit more fan service here and there if you’re familiar with the universe.

    Even though it's not far from a skin for Battle Chasers, Ruined King certainly is a good RPG, with a great story and brilliant ost. Definitively a nice way to learn more about Runeterra and the extended universe of Riot's success, League of Legends.

    Ruined King: A League of Legends Story is the first attempt by Riot Games to make LOL more like a role-playing game. Although some of the torturous designs at the UI and enemy distribution significantly reduced my experience, the final quality of the game was quite acceptable, and the story around Ruined King was well complemented. If the developer can follow up in time to solve some annoying problems, I think the game experience will be improved to the next level.

    Daha önce firmanın 2 oyunu da oynamıştım darksiders genesisi severek oynadım bu oyun da önceki oyunları andırdı yine benzer tasarımlar, ara sahneler vb. güzel olmuş. Maalesef böyle oyunların kötü yanı kitlesi oluyor. İnsanın kendine sorması lazım ben bu oyun tarzını seviyor muyum? Bir yayında izlerken chatte gördüm, çöp diyen, kamera açısına laf atan, sıra tabanlı olmasına laf atıp kötü diyen çakma diyenleri bile gördüm :D . Arkadaşlar oyun bu, tarzı bu, Riot böyle istediği için Airship Syndicate'ye yaptırmış zaten.

    My review got deleted so here's a recap and a 0 score.

    UI is a mess, mouse+keyboard doesn't work well, key rebinding is very flawed (can't rebind for fishing), combat is boring, alt+tab pauses the game, exploration is dull and there's too much backtracking and very limited quick travel
