  • Conclusion: The fact remains that if you're looking for a fast, smart and fun fantasy themed team-based strategy game, you can't go wrong here. If you've taken the time to appreciate the popular Warcraft III mod, Defense of the Ancients, well, then, you're more than likely to get a kick out of this. You can always decide to have a go at the game against AI bots, but mark my words, that's not how this game is meant to be played.
  • Pros: An extremely addictive team-based strategy experience and a fair tribute to DoTA, with cool-looking graphics and plenty to keep you occupied gameplay wise;
  • Cons: Still needs more content, which we hope will become available soon.

  • Summary: Sometimes, as a reviewer, I come across games that are completely outside my sphere of general knowledge or interest. League of Legends is just such a game, one that encompasses almost every element that I tend to avoid in my game choices. I prefer single-player games, League of Legends is very much a multiplayer event.

  • Excerpt: There’s a genre that you might never have heard of. It’s small, with roots in PC gaming, and was born of a free, custom map in Warcraft III called Defense of the Ancients. It goes by many names, but it appears that “Multiplayer Online Battle Arena” is the most accepted, with several developers scrambling to put together the first successful package to force people to pay for what started out as free.

  • Excerpt: It isn't all that uncommon for mods to make it big these days. Just take it from Valve. But for a mod to inspire a burgeoning new genre of gaming is a rare thing indeed. League of Legends, a game that liberally riffs on the Warcraft phenomenon DotA, is the product of this very kind of scenario. It attempts to carve out its own identity, all while being completely free of charge. But is this investment in time well worth your micromanaged minutes?

League of Legends Review (PC)

  • Excerpt: In a league of its own League of Legends is something refreshing in the MMORPG market for several reasons. Firstly it’s a concept that I haven’t seen many times before in that it’s an RTS game and not the usual hack and slash RPG. Secondly it’s very friendly for none paying players, in fact, the elements of the game you have to pay for are purely superficial and don’t really affect gameplay.
  • Pros: Easy to pick up, Friendly for none paying players, Good for those people with little time.
  • Cons: Laggy on Older Machines, Repetitive, Frustrating player disconnections.
