Many Shall Pass!

  • Excerpt: Guardians of Middle-Earth is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) set in the J. R. R. Tolkien universe of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings.'Normally this is a game that would I would expect to come out for the PC, but not this time. Guardians is an Xbox 360 and PS3 game only. And console gamers should really love that. Now, you are probably asking yourself how good combat will be without the precision of a keyboard and mouse, and you would be surprised.

Guardians of Middle-earth

Playstation Illustrated
9 January 2013
  • Excerpt: I am sure there are very few people who have not heard of The Lord of the Rings . I would venture to say that a large majority of people have seen at least one of the movies or the new movie, The Hobbit , so you all know what these characters and their world looks like. The character design in Guardians of Middle-earth is spot-on. They all look exactly as I remember them.

There’s Something Precious About This Guardians of Middle Earth Review

New Gamer Nation
19 December 2012
  • Conclusion: There really isn’t much else to say. The character design is great and borrows heavily from the films, and the sound is pretty top-notch, too. The graphics are as good as you’ll find on current-gen systems, if a bit muddied. But the gameplay is the core of the experience, and if you’re looking for an easy way to get into the genre, Guardians of Middle-earth is about the best bet you have.

  • Conclusion: Despite the wait time to get the games going with real players, if you've never had the pleasure of playing a MOBA, then let Guardians of Middle-earth be your first. It has all the fast-paced insanity that comes with the genre, a wealthy amount of options for loadouts, and a nice dash of Lord of the Rings personalities and species to boot. Oddly good for a console MOBA.

Guardians of Middle-earth review

GamesRadar
5 December 2012
  • Excerpt: MOBA (or multiplayer online battle arena) games like League of Legends and DotA may call PCs their home, but this spin on the traditional real-time strategy genre has started making its way onto consoles, to favorable results. Awesomenauts was the first, and now Guardians of Middle-earth shows us that anyone can get a taste of a quality MOBA game without the need of a keyboard or mouse.
  • Pros: A true MOBA experience on consoles, Diverse selection of Guardians, Great interface and controls
  • Cons: Mini-map is hard to follow, Matchmaking can take a while, AI is exploitable

Guardians of Middle-Earth

Gamereactor
7 December 2012
  • Conclusion: You probably haven't seen Gandalf, Sauron and Arathorn fight side by side before, but in Guardians of Middle-Earth it's a regular occurence. And while the game delves deeply enough into Tolkien's Lord of the Rings mythology, that most of the playable characters will be unfamiliar to those who have only seen Peter Jackson's films - it doesn't care much for official canon or chronology. Here the powers of darkness team up with the powers of good on regular basis.
  • Pros: + Fun and captivating gameplay. + Precise conrtols. + Makes adjustments to the formula without watering it down.
  • Cons: - Very sensitive to the slightest lag. - The single lane level isn't very exciting.
