Guardians of Middle Earth

  • Conclusion: For representing an untested genre on consoles, Guardians of Middle Earth acquits itself pretty well. If only the online functionality was as airtight as its core strategy, we’d have a truly great mashup on our hands.

  • Excerpt: The idea of selling a MOBA on a console is a fairly uphill battle. MOBA community members have played DotA for about seven years now on a PC, and such a drastic change could have drastic challenges for a development team.

  • Excerpt: As the first game to bring the traditional MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) genre over from PC, Guardians of Middle-Earth faced the tough test of adapting the formula for console controls while marrying it to the Lord of the Rings franchise. We’re happy to report that it’s a successful union all around, delivering not only the best series release in years, but also a great, strategic new style of play.
  • Pros: + Smart, tactical combat that requires teamwork., + Great variety between the available Guardians.
  • Cons: ? Can downloadable content add breadth to this excellent core?

Guardians of Middle-Earth Xbox 360 Review

DarkZero
11 January 2013
  • Excerpt: Multiplayer online battle arena, or MOBA for short, have become a big thing for PC gaming. A few months ago, the developers for League of Legends threw out a picture with statistics that showed it was the most-played game in the world. It’s not only League of Legends that has become popular. If you check out Steam ’s stat page, then you will find that DOTA 2 – Valve’s own take on the genre – is always at the top with 200,000+ players at any given time.

Guardians of Middle-Earth (Xbox 360)

Gamesurf
13 January 2013
  • Conclusion: La proposta di Guardians of Middle-earth è tanto settoriale (il titolo è solo multiplayer, solo a squadre, con una sola modalità di gioco) quanto inedita per l'universo console. Eppure il meccanismo funziona e la varietà è comunque garantita dalla notevole diversificazione dei personaggi giocabili, dal buon grado di personalizzazione del profilo e da un gameplay a squadre dotato di una certa profondità cooperativa.

Guardians of Middle-Earth (360)

  • Conclusion: Eigentlich bietet Wächter von Mittelerde alles, was ein gutes MOBA-Spiel haben muss. Die Charaktere sind sehr individuell, die Kämpfe genretypisch sehr taktisch geprägt, und die Präsentation hinterlässt einen guten Eindruck. Doch auf Dauer ist die Auswahl der Heldenfiguren etwas dürftig, es gibt gerade mal zwei Schlachtfelder, und auch das Matchmaking ist alles andere als optimal. Schade, denn damit verschenkt Monolith viel Potenzial.
  • Pros: Herr-der-Ringe-Lizenz gut umgesetzt, Charaktere unterscheiden sich sehr gut voneinander, Viel Freiraum für Taktikexperimente, Relativ leichter Einstieg, Freischaltbare Extas sorgen für Motivation
  • Cons: Nur zwei Schlachtfelder, Charakterauswahl etwas dünn, Matchmaking mit Macken

PS3Hype

  • Summary: Guardians of Middle-Earth is op zijn best wanneer je in twee gelijkwaardige teams tegen elkaar speelt. Een potje is dan echt heerlijk! Er is een groot scala aan personages en aanvallen en het sterker worden naarmate de wedstrijd vordert maakt het nog eens extra spannend. Ook is de game met een controller prima speelbaar. Guardians of Middle-Earth worstelt echter wel met bekende kritiek op MOBA-spellen.
  • Pros: Veel speelbare personages, Verschillende manieren om te vechten, Natuurlijk spelverloop met toenemende actie..., Besturing werkt prima
  • Cons: Lange wachttijden en soms lag, Geen verhaal of scenario's en weinig levels, ...maar winnaar is al snel bekend

  • Conclusion: Det er ikke ofte men ser Gandalf, Sauron og Arathorn kjempe siden om side, med dette er altså hverdagskost i Guardians of Middle-Earth . For selv om spillet tar utgangspunkt i Tolkiens Ringenes Herre-univers - og faktisk graver så dypt ned i det, at de fleste av figurene vil være fullstendig ukjente for de som kun har sett Peter Jacksons film - så henger det ikke like godt sammen i forhold til kronologi eller historie.
  • Pros: Morsomt og fengende gameplay, bra kontroll, formelen er justert men fungerer fortsatt
  • Cons: Følsomt overfor lag, 1-lane banen er så spennende

  • Conclusion: Harvemminpa näkee Gandalfia, Sauronia ja Aragornia taistelemassa rinta rinnan, mutta Guardians of Middle-Earth issä se on yleinen sattumus. Peli sukeltaa toisaalta syvälle Tolkienin Sormusten herra -mytologiaan, mutta ei välitä paljoakaan "virallisesta" kaanonista tai aikajärjestyksestä. Siten vain Peter Jacksonin elokuvat nähneille pelattavat hahmokonfiguraatiot ovat vieraita. Hyvyyden voimat liittoutuvat pahuuden voimain kanssa taajaan tässä pelissä.
  • Pros: Hauska ja mukaansatempaava pelikokemus, toimiva ohjaus, tekee muutoksia genren kaavoihin vesittämättä sitä
  • Cons: Herkkä pienimmällekin lagille, vaihtoehtoinen yksivaiheinen kenttä ei järin jännittävä
