    When all is said and done, Ruined King: A League of Legends Story blends wonderful characters and a fascinating world with some of the finest turn-based gameplay I’ve ever experienced. Despite a few stumbles, this is a package that anyone who loves this genre should check out. While I still have to give it some more thought, this game is most likely going to end up being my game of the year.

    For League of Legend fans this game is a no brainer, finally you will be able to see and move around the world of Runeterra in a way that isn’t possible in LoL. But for those folks who just love a good story, interesting characters and pretty decent combat Ruined King could be that gateway game that gets into the larger world of League of Legends and its many, many offerings that are coming soon.

    Ruined King: A League of Legends Story isn't reinventing the wheel, that's for sure. However, its solid game systems make it quite a recommendable RPG, especially for LoL fans. They will be able to appreciate the reinterpretation of their favorite universe by Airship Syndicate and Joe Madureira. And while we regret a somewhat conventional writing that sometimes lacks subtlety, we appreciate being able to immerse ourselves in the alleys of Bilgewater and the Dark Isles in the company of charismatic champions.

    Ruined King: A League of Legends Story immerses us in the rich lore of League of Legends without the need to play the iconic MOBA on PC. Well-crafted characters and a very attractive audiovisual style can partially cover the shortcomings of a not particularly original JRPG-like gameplay and a story that doesn't dare to deviate too much from the existing lore. Nevertheless, this remains a good dive in Riot Games' saga, but also a good starting point, along with Wild Rift and the TV series Arcane, to introduce newcomers to this rich universe.

    The gameplay isn't overly complicated, and the story is dreamy enough without being overly stuffy, making it an alluring option even for people allergic to fantasy altogether. Put me down as a successful LoL convert - or at least a willing entrant to its world, if not the main game itself.

    More than a mere copy of Battle Chasers and more than a guilty pleasure for League of Legends players, Ruined King proves to be an excellent game and its quality is surprising. The deeply addictive combat system and advanced character customisation allows you to explore the different zones offered through a story that is as well written as it is portrayed. You'll want to play it again!

    Brilliant innovative tactical combat, using a three lane (speed or balanced or power) timeline. Lots of buffs and debuffs. Each of yourBrilliant innovative tactical combat, using a three lane (speed or balanced or power) timeline. Lots of buffs and debuffs. Each of your heroes has different capabilities and a different role. While combat can seem a bit complicated at first, after playing it for some time you will appreciate the richness and innovativeness of the tactical combat. Nice graphics, great voice acting, nice though not deep story. I encountered no bugs. This is a game I will play to the finish, as also the designers vary and ramp up the baddies as you progress to keep it interesting. Expand

    I love turn based games and this one had a huge amount of promise. Its could have been great but instead settles for mediocrity. Don't get meI love turn based games and this one had a huge amount of promise. Its could have been great but instead settles for mediocrity. Don't get me wrong, the graphics are well done but it takes more than that to make a good game. The UI is pretty bad. This makes every battle frustrating. Even moving through the battle and standard interface is a chore. There are numerous graphics bugs as well. The worst thing by far though, are the characters. apart from one or two, these are the most poorly written and two dimensional characters I've seen in a while. They are stereotyped and cringe worthy. One female character is muscle bound behemoth and you're forced to play with them early on. You have no strong main character, instead you have to play through multiple characters which loses the sense of progression and character building. I'd like a sequel to this game that's made right with an awesome main character or allowing the user to at least customize or create their own. Expand
