Guardians of Middle-earth
2 September 2013
Summary: “How dare you? HOW DARE YOU! How dare you review a Lord of the Rings game without having every film box set in a display case! HOW DARE YOU review a MOBA without having been yelled at and debased by 12-year-olds for more than 200 hours! HOW DARE YOU!! HOOOOW DAAAREEE YOU, SIR!!” I’ve read your complaints about my Guardians of Middle-earth impressions post .
Excerpt: Guardians of Middle-earth was revealed earlier this year and received a mixed reception likely due to the ever increasing popularity of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit franchises but also the reluctance of gamers to believe the Multiplayer Online Battle Arena genre that is so beloved by PC gamers could succeed on platforms.
Excerpt: Barring a select few examples, MOBAs have primarily been the sole domain of PC players. To capitalize on the most recent wave of Hobbit-mania, Monolith has readied a Tolkienesque take on the genre expressly for consoles. Does Guardians of Middle Earth succeed in delivering a true MOBA experience for consoles or should it cast itself into the fires of Mount Doom?
