League of Legends

IGN
13 February 2014
  • Conclusion: Even though you play on the same few maps with similar items, there’s so much depth and strategy going on that no two matches of League of Legends ever feel the same. It’s distinctive style encourages surprise attacks and frequent use of skill-shot powers, and its colorful art style makes everything pop on the screen.

Expert Review

GameSpot
10 October 2013
  • Summary: League of Legends is not just a game: it's a cutthroat competitive digital sport where the winners roar in victory and the losers whimper in defeat. You don't need to play on the same level as the pros to experience the thrills of these online battlegrounds, however. Blending elements of action role-playing, real-time strategy, and tower defense games into an engrossing amalgam of awesome, League of Legends is a free-to-play game that ensures each play session yields a...
  • Pros: Tense, explosive gameplay makes every match a thrill, Large number of champions leads to lots of diversity and flexibility, Rich customization options, Fair free-to-play model, Spawning creatures further spice up the competition
  • Cons: Experienced players on new accounts skew matchmaking

A League of Its Own!

GIN
5 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Wow, has it been a long time since I've done a proper review and not a little Time Waster type. It feels like my time for serious gaming is just slipping through my fingers, but all is not lost! There is one game out there that has pulled me back into the world of hardcore gaming, League of Legends (dun dun dun). Now by no means is League of Legends (LoL from now on) a new game, in fact the game has been around for two years now!

We Are the Champions, My Friend

Cheat Code Central
7 May 2010
  • Conclusion: League of Legends is a good looking game with stylized graphics and huge, detailed environments. Unlike Defense of the Ancients, there are three maps instead of one. The sound effects, music, and voiceovers are surprisingly good, with convincing dialogue and a variety of sound effects. Commands are simple to execute thanks to a streamlined interface void of the layers of windows required with excessive micromanagements. Technically, the game runs smoothly.

League of Legends

  • 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.

League of Legends (PC) - Review

VGChartz
14 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Sometimes the best games aren’t brand new ideas, but a refinement of those that already exist. League of Legends is one such game. Many PC strategy fans will be familiar with the popular Warcraft 3 mod Defense of the Ancients, or DotA for short, which has recently inspired many full retail titles including Demigod and the upcoming Heroes of Newerth. League of Legends, however, just might be the best of them.

League of Legends - PC - Review

GameZone
2 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Ask any WarCraft fan to compile a list of their favorite mods, and Defense of the Ancients will almost certainly appear on that list. Centering on the popular hero class characters of WarCraft, Defense of the Ancients grew rapidly into a popular office distraction that no RTS-fan could resist.
