    Ruined King is an excellent western JRPG and is one of the most pleasant surprises of the year. Combining an extensive and interesting campaign, a well thought out battle system, lovely graphics, and impressive soundtrack, it will satisfy turn-based RPG's fans to the fullest. Highly recommended.

    Despite some resemblance to Battle Chasers: Nightwar, with Ruined King: A League of Legend Story the developers make a step forward and deliver us a more refined experience, suitable for veterans and newcomers to League of Legends.

    Ruined King: A League Of Legends Story is a passionate love letter to the League Of Legends universe, but that shouldn’t put off anyone looking to explore Runeterra for the first time. Full of compelling characters and a stunning environment, Ruined King is well worth the dive for any RPG fan.

    It’s a great feeling to finally see all the characters from LoL you know and love being used in a fully-fledged singleplayer game. Ruined King has its shortcomings, but overall, it is a heck of a good time.

    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.

    With deep strategy elements found both inside and outside of combat, Ruined King: A League of Legends Story makes for an undeniably engaging and challenging adventure. Fans of League of Legends get to see the world of Ruenterra from a new lens and will be hooked by the endearing character moments found within the game’s story. Ruined King may not find the wide appeal that other League properties have managed, and some of the interactions found outside of combat are admittedly cumbersome, but it’s hard to deny the excitement and depth of content found within the turn-based battles of Ruined King.

    Ruined King es un juego que, sin duda, está bastante bien. A nivel de historia cuenta uno de los eventos del LoL aunque, como no sigo eseRuined King es un juego que, sin duda, está bastante bien. A nivel de historia cuenta uno de los eventos del LoL aunque, como no sigo ese juego, a nivel de historia por si misma está bien, con unos personajes razonablemente interesantes y bien llevados. No es la mejor historia del mismo y, como en todos los JRPG, no tienes margen alguno para afectarla o modificarla, pero cumple manteniendo el interés. A nivel de jugabilidad, siguiendo lo visto en Battlechasers, hay una buena cantidad de enemigos que llevan a combates interesantes donde usar distintas estrategias y jugar con si atacas rápido y suave, o más lento y potente; además, los seis protagonistas juegan de un modo bastante distinto entre si de modo que es probable que encuentres una combinación con la que estar cómodo. Además, el sistema de avance y personalización de los personajes, tanto por runas, como avances como equipo, funciona bastante bien para darte una buena personalización del estilo de juego de cada uno dentro de su estilo general. Eso sí, aún en su dificultad más alta, es un juego tirando a facil.

    Gráficamente el juego cumple, especialmente cuando la cámara no se acerca demasiado a los personajes. Pero se aleja un tanto de la estética típica del LoL en la paleta de colores, diseño de personajes y demás, acercándose más al estilo habitual del estudio de Madureira. El sonido cumple bien, sin grandes alardes ni nada especial. Y en cuanto a bugs, la inmensa mayoría de los que he encontrado son glitches gráficos y un error (frecuente eso sí) en que el mapa indique erróneamente dónde se encuentran las misiones.

    Por todo ello Ruined King no pasará a la historia como grandísimo juego, pero mantiene al jugador bastante entretenido durante sus 50 horas. Y, como parte de la estrategia mayor de Riot de ampliar su mundo, permite profundizar en el lore e historias de algunos de sus personajes. Por todo ello, un 6,5.
