Guardians of Middle Earth

DarkStation
11 September 2013
  • Conclusion: I hope that Monolith and their PC assistants Zombie Studios can bring GOME up to speed. If it receives the proper care and dedicated tinkering that most other MOBAs do in this space, then it could fully realize just what makes it valuable: fast, accessible MOBA design that teaches as it thrills, with a delightfully deep representation of Tolkien lore on top of it.

Guardians of Middle-earth

Digital Chumps
7 September 2013
  • Conclusion: Guardians of Middle-Earth on the PC should be better in so many ways than its console cousin, but it's not. The controls and lack of online community support make this game a tough sell.

Guardians of Middle-earth Review (PC)

Softpedia
21 June 2013
  • Excerpt: The game was initially launched on home consoles and is now also available on the PC with a number of changes designed to make the entire experience more interesting and more stable. Guardians of Middle-earth is designed to be a streamlined MOBA, which abandons some of the more exoteric aspects of the genre in order to deliver a fast-paced game that has clearer rules and better defined progressions for characters.
  • Pros: + Lord of the Rings characters, + Streamlined mechanics
  • Cons: - Limited use of license, - Limited number of players

Expert Review

Original-Gamer
28 December 2012
  • Conclusion: The massive online battle arena (MOBA) sub-genre has blown up the past couple of years. While Defense of the Ancients (DotA) was the first game to focus on this style of play, League of Legends (LoL) is another MOBA game that has become a massive hit. Thing is, for us console folks, that MOBA craze has been passing us by. We've had our share of variations like Awesomenauts and Monday Night Combat, but there's not one that comes off as a "pure" MOBA.

The hobbits are killing everyone! Guardians of Middle-earth reviewed

GamingTrend
16 September 2013
  • Excerpt: It seems like everyone is jumping on the MOBA wagon, and the fine denizens of Middle-earth are no exception. Originally launched on the 360, Guardians of Middle Earth has just seen a PC release on Steam – which means you can have Gandalf, Sauron, Bilbo, Gollum and a giant deadly spider all standing shoulder to shoulder with each other against an opposing team that’s equally heretical as far as source material goes.
  • Pros: A Middle-earth MOBA may be a hit with some fans, Has more ‘game’ aspects than a typical MOBA, A decent port with only one annoying glitch to it
  • Cons: DLC is pricy and seems a bit much considering the game’s scope, Endurance mode ends up becoming kind of dull after a while

Le torri di Guardians of Middle-earth

IGN
4 October 2014
  • Excerpt: L’annuncio della versione PC di Guardians of Middle-earth ha colto di sorpresa molti appassionati di videogiochi, me compreso. Nessuno si sarebbe aspettato che Warner Bros. e Monolith avrebbero pubblicato anche su PC il loro MOBA pensato e realizzato per le console e per un pubblico poco avvezzo a questo genere.

  • Excerpt: Первое впечатление от Guardians of Middle-earth - будто попадаешь в анекдот, который начинается со слов «Встречаются как-то Гендальф, Саурон, Горлум, Фродо и Галадриэль в баре…». Щепетильные и тонкочувствующие поклонники творчества профессора Толкиена в свое время предавали анафеме и за меньшее. На этот раз разработчики приготовили для толкиенистов просто ядерную бомбу. Готовьтесь, «толчки»!

Guardians of Middle-earth

igromania.ru
15 January 2013
  • Summary: По сравнению с лидерами жанра Guardians of Middle-earth не так глубока и разнообразна, зато гораздо дружелюбнее к новичкам. С учетом того, что «первая консольная MOBA» должна привести в жанр новых игроков, — ход вполне уместный. Только вряд ли это поможет ей стать популярной.
  • Pros: сбалансированная адаптация правил «доты» под консоли;, знаковые герои — чисто книжные в том числе;, наша прелесть теперь герой, у нашей прелести есть
  • Cons: не слишком удобное управление;, много спорных упрощений;, неинтересные умения персонажей.
