In all honesty this game should have been great, and a long time ago when it was first released this game was actually great. Released on the Consoles in 2012, this game was a well polished and much needed intorduction to the MOBA gameplay concept to console players.
The developers were fast and transparent. The community was alive and everyone was happy. Somehow the development team slowly changed from being fast and transparent to being non existent and deceitful..
It started with the release of one character, Snaga, he spelled the downfall of this glorious game. Somehow his release saw a magnitute of glitches and bugs which made the game unplayable, and until that point hadn't existed. Speed bugs, and gold mode bugs and everything imbetween.
The developers spent the next few months trying and failing to find a fix for the issues caused by Snaga's release. They released the remaining DLC characters and then went into hibernation mode.
This brings us to the PC release, a new Developer at the helm Zombie studios.. promises were made of fixing all the issues which plagued the Console release and and saw the once great community decimated.
Fast forward almost 2 years later and the PC game is a virtual graveyard. The game priced at 19.99 is unappealing to new gamers, and the gamers who already own it just flat out have no reason to play it. If you could write a book on missed potential GOME would be it.
The gameplay itself is really nice, the characters counter each other fairly well, no one character is super OP, the controls and movements are smooth. The learning curve isn't bad at all, and last but not least you can play as the well known Middle Earth characters.. With that said, I would avoid this game like the plague, if you already own it, idle those cards and remove it from your harddrive, if you don't own it, consider yourself lucky.
