    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.

    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.

    First of all I want to say that I am a lol fan and I've played this game on PC. When I turned this game on I was very excited to play an rpgFirst of all I want to say that I am a lol fan and I've played this game on PC. When I turned this game on I was very excited to play an rpg from RIOT, but after several minutes I did not have that positive attitude. The reason for that is because the game have many bugs, terrible key mapping, and gameplay solutions that just does not work. All of these combined with the alt-tab pausing the game, made me think that The Ruined King is very poor port from console. However, if you are able to get used to these downsides, the game is better and better. Setting in the universe, champions and graphic design is doing the job. The game is simple, there are not so many combinations of items and heroes, but the unique monsters and nice animations will propably make you forget about this. If i was not a fan of lol I'd probably gave it 4 or 5 our of 10, but since the story is nice I gave it a 6. Expand
