Despite what some people say about the new XP system, it really doesn't make much difference to casual games. I don't know what it is like for serious competative players, but for me all it does is add some sound effects and the two letters xp when you kill something. Overall this game is extremely enjoyable. I would recommend also getting the starstorm and overdrive DLC as they give you access to more 'nauts.
Yes, matchmaking is an issue, but even big games have issues. It is definitely worth the cheap summer sale price, and still worth it at full price. Fun and enjoyable game.

Great Game.
Awesome with friends and good alone but not great.

And i urge everyone to ignore all the recent comments that are complaining about matchmaking and uncaring Devs. Regular patches include character balances, Devs do weekly livestreams where they ask the community about new ideas and coming soon is the big matchmaking update that will run matches on private servers not steam servers.

Is a great game and give it a chance, worth every penny and the Devs are great.

As MOBA where there's 2 teams facing off in a side scroller action, I'd personally skip this game as I found it amazingly boring. Theres free flash games that are better.

If this game interests you I suggest heading to addictinggames.com or the like.

This is a great game for beginer MOBA players,. Even though online is is unbalanced, I still had fun playing against and with bots. You can make private lobbies with friends and get achievments that way.

Pros:
-Easy to learn
-A great character selection
-Nice Soundtrack and announcers
-A different approach to MOBAs with the whole 2D thing.
-Easy to maneuver
-Different Maps with different Junge Creatures and Hazardous things.
-A leveling system

Cons:
-Unfair online matchmaking
-DLCs aren't really worth it.
-Froggy G
-A leveling system
-Items. No consumables and no wards (unless playing gnaw)


Overall it is a great game, and I would reccomend this to MOBA lovers and MOBA newbies.

Love this little 2D side scrolling destroy the enemy base game. Not for its game play, or friendly community, but its art style, sound/music and ability to drop in an out game play. I sometimes don't have time to pour endless hours into a game and may only have a few minutes to jump in have a bash then out again. This game has very little learning curve other than figuring out the abilities of the huge array of funny characters which makes it quick and easy to play. Even better if you can find someone to play with but not a deal breaker, if you enjoy playing a game with some silly humour than doesn’t require days of your life its worth checking out. Have easily gotten my money’s worth out of the game so would give it a thumbs up!

I just want to say that this game used to be incredibly good. In all honesty I've played more of Awesomenauts than any other game I've played to date. This game is a MOBA like any other, but with rather simplistic mechanics compared to other MOBAs. Things like shop items are limited to a small variety that can drastically change the style of play of characters, very unique to other MOBA shop items that merely provide stat changes. Despite being a "Watered-down" MOBA, the game was very fun to play.
As the years carried on, however, the game began to quickly lose its sheen. Ronimo has failed to listen to its fanbase time and time again. The matchmaking system now is the same as it was when it was first released: Without relative skill matchmaking, so matches are often decided before they even start. No dedicated servers, so networking in the game is strictly peer-to-peer, which doesn't work well with MOBAs. All forms of hit detection are determined by the client of the attacking player, so a lagging player can easily rack of kills by exploiting his latency. Game balancing has been an issue, as the stronger characters tend to be the newer ones available through DLC, making things feel P2W at times. The community is awful; expect cancer.
Overall, this game had potential, but slowly my expectations for Ronimo to respond to player pleading and continued to take the game in a direction no player wanted.

If you love;
-Waiting for players to join your game
-Playing against unbalanced characters
-Playing with 300 ping
-Playing agant players who are on much higher skill level
-Playing with 2 bots on your teams and 3 players on enemy team

Then you will love this game. I sure didnt.

Dont play until they release a update where it fixes the matchmaking so you dont feel like you are masturbating with sandpaper every time you play this game.

This game made me really happy!!

Pros
- Cute, awesome and futuristic design
- Super fun and even more with friends!
- It gets updated pretty often! I had to catch up with updates several times and they always amaze me with a new character! They even give a chance to regular players to participate and compete providing a new character design which actually they brought to life in-game, so that's lovely!
- Loved how many characters you can play with! They are completely different one from each other and with a whole set of skills that always comes with surprises!
- When I've started out being weak and competed against high level folks, I've managed with tactics and taking advantage of my skills + environment. It worked! :)

CONS / suggestions:
- I wish you could earn some clothes as rewards instead of always buying them.
- I wish server were P2P to avoid lag issues.
- Brazilian people mostly took advatange of lag to win and kill while I was frozen. (not nice) As a solution I've created matches on my own to play along with highest lvl bots and issue solved.
- That's it lol!

This game! Love it!! It's gorgeous, lag will get fixed someday :) It won't change all the fun and love I've got from it! :P
Thanks!

It used to be fun, but then they kept adding more characters. It's now unbalanced, the hitboxes are shocking, lag is a major issue due to no dedicated servers and late joining is really annoying. Also if you are up against a premade and you aren't a god then you've lost already.

The game itself is fairly good quality, but its balance is dubious at best and it has one of the most vitriolic online communities I\'ve seen. The game is EXTREMELY beginner unfriendly since you only get new skills and characters by leveling up and during those early levels you have other players calling you all sorts of lovely names and telling you to leave.

It's a fun game it just needs more people. Many characters with differing playstyles to learn, charming style, some great sound work/voice lines. I'm bad at the game and keep getting matched with people who crush me so I always play this game addictively and then not again for awhile because I get frustrated again. I also wish I could choose which character bots I could face in practice mode (unless I'm mistaken and this can be done), otherwise I enjoy just autopilotin against bots. I still think the game is worth playing despite this it's worth the price but can be frustrating.

So, I thought I could make some review, then here is my opinion on this game.

If you like moba games and kinda fast action, you should go into this one, it's not classical moba game, like Dota or LoL, it's 3v3 breath taking game I fell in love by the first look. If you like more fantasy/fast action/epic taunts and music, you should go in this one.
