Summary: My brief background: I've been a gamer since the 1980s, a PC gamer since 1991. Though I'm not a hardcore fan of Tolkien, I am a fan nevertheless I have a lifetime subscription in Lord of the Rings Online after all. Also, I play LoL and DotA2 regularly, having played HoN in the past as well. I wanted to like this game, I really did. Seeing as it is a console port, I had next to no expectations of it, but even these almost nonexistent expectations have not been fully met.
Summary: This game is by far the most awful MOBA I have ever tried playing. Before I even get into the actual gameplay, I'd like to discuss it's horrible business model. Guardians of Middle-Earth (GoME) has a $19.99 base price. All that $20 buys you is access to the game. That's right, you still have to either grind out in game currency (similar to League of Legends' Influence Points system) or buy characters in packs for $15 a pack.
Summary: Sadly DOTA 2 and LoL are sooo much more fun that this game. Its not even close. The roster in GOME is so small compared to the competition. Throw on top of that the fact that characters pretty much all play the same anyways and you have little incentive to play an already inferior version of its competition
Summary: The Tolkien lore is great, with cool characters from JRR Tolkiens Middle Earth, which is the grandfather of all Fantasy universes, of which other game worlds just rip off from. I have been playing with KB and mouse, the graphics are beautiful, the game is fun, the voice overs are great. Minimal support should not be bad for a game that is starting.
Summary: I played this game on xbox 360 and even though i went through hell and back due to it's problems i chose to give a try on a pc version. How they managed to make things even worse is beyond me. The game is laggy as hell for the vast majority of people among many other problems. Please stay away. It's broken beyond repair.
Summary: I have been PC gaming since 1992, and am having a ton of fun with this game! What is all the whining and complaining about? I have had hardly any lag at all and no DC's....I don't care about comparisons to LoL and DoTA, because frankly if I liked those 2 games I would be playing them instead. The Tolkien lore is great, with cool characters from JRR Tolkiens Middle Earth, which is the grandfather of all Fantasy universes, of which other game worlds just rip off from.
Summary: Unfortunately my experience has been very poor. The reason for this is that unlike LoL or DotA, games are using a shared connection between players in this poor moba. So all it takes is a single player to have a bad connection and the game lags consistently for everyone. When first logging in you can't even play the main iconic characters, but you can purchase with DLC....
Summary: Hm, how to begin. Well, there's absolutely no reason to play this over dota2, LoL, smite, forge or HoN. The combat is surprisingly slow, but that's not because you need the time to employ tactics/strategy, it's just slow. There is no item store you're supposed to equip stuff pre-match. So during a game, if you're mismatched, there is no way to "build tanky" or utility, or damage, and so on.
Summary: The game is ridiculous, looks like it's in a alpha version. The game makes me think in a refund in Steam!! If you love your money, wait some months more! Let's see if developers releases some news..
