    Hi Rez studios has a game changer on their hands here. SMITE is an incredibly fun and addicting MOBA that is perfect for those who are looking from a change of pace from your typical MOBA.

    Smite is an excellent addition to an expanding genre, and one that distinguishes itself from the rest of the pack with decidedly different gameplay, a quirky and lighthearted take on classic mythology, and a variety of interesting modes.

    Smite makes the MOBA more approachable with smart tweaks to the formula and action RPG-inspired combat.

    Smite is alternative to Dota and LoL suited to beginners as well as veterans of the genre.

    The product of Hi Rez Studios is well made, and offers different feelings from those of its competitors, thanks to the different camera angle and a fast paced gameplay.

    Smite is invigorating. It’s not another MOBA. It takes one aspect of a MOBA’s structure and builds on it until it's something else entirely. Smite has developed into an action game. One with lanes, creeps and towers, all the things you’d expect from a MOBA, but even the familiar looks different when viewed from Smite’s refreshing perspective.

    A different camera angle along with great e-sport support can't hide the fact that this has been done before, with better result.

    Amazing new twist on an otherwise horrible genre (for me at least) this MOBA is the only one I can stand to play day in and day out with noAmazing new twist on an otherwise horrible genre (for me at least) this MOBA is the only one I can stand to play day in and day out with no problems whatsoever. Honestly I would say that this blows any other MOBA out of the water, though I know many League, and DOTA players would disagree. Have been playing this a lot more recently, and I have got to say I'm hooked. The overall feel of the game is way more interactive than most MOBAs and the direct contact to your deity makes this game very unique even without game play mechanics involved. If you don't like playing League Of Legends or DOTA 2 you may take a liking to this game as I did. I have played many other MOBAs and I can say clearly that this is my favorite, no other MOBA keeps me wanting to play more. Game play in short once you get the hang of playing is very enjoyable and fun. The one complaint I have with it isn't really the game itself but more the players of smite. I always run into games where nobody wants to communicate and work together and we always lose, but drastically we win when we work together and know our strengths and weaknesses. Who needs help and who doesn't. All I really need to say to the other smite players is, play as a team, win as a team. Otherwise this game is immensely amazing. I can't even begin to tell you how fun this game is, if you want to have the most fun I would say invite your friends to play with you and work together to win! -Zaven Expand

None of those is as good as Smite. Smite is dynamic and has high skillcap (dota 2 is quite slow-paced, not saying thats bad, its not just my piece of cake, while LoL requiers hardly any skill and is not challangin at all). Every god is unique and feels exciting to play. 10/10
    1 year in and I guess I finally found what I was looking for :)

Next the concept of Gods as playable characters is really original and awesome. Unlike fantasy characters in LoL and Dota2 we can relate ourselves more to Gods, their powers. The next awesome thing is the Voice guided system. You want to call missing ? just press "VF", for retreat "VRR" this small thing makes team work great. Finally the free to play model is really good, with no necessity for high grinding. There are no runes or masteries so that there is no Pay2Win. God packs are available and u get favors very generously. Based on F2P model Dota 2 > Smite > LoL.

    So if you like MOBA and want a different take this game is must try. If you are trying to getting to MOBA and like action games this is must play, as its very accessible to new players.

    Long waits for a game and its very rare to have a close game you either win really easily or get smashed.
    If the game had a better matchmacking system and more of a player base the game would be less frustrating. Games are over too quick or you spend ages getting beaten badly and no one wants to surrender. Normally the guys that have overfed the opposition.
    Theres better MOBAs out there I'd strongly recommend going for lol or dota. Give this one a miss
