Excerpt: Reviewing free to play games can suck. When you buy a game you’re making a personal investment. You’ve spent your money and formed expectations of what you believe the game should deliver. League of Legends doesn’t cost one cent to play. Like many free PC games (Korean MMOs I’m looking at you) it uses a cash shop interface with microtransactions as a business model.
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.

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.
Excerpt: If you The key to individual success is picking the right champion for you. Out of the box there are over 40 champions to choose from. Many of the champions fit into a standard character class of ranged fighter, tank, mage, healer, damage dealer, etc. You should choose your champion wisely depending on your style of play. I found that I like to play the game by charging into enemy troops and wailing on them.
