Dont buy it, just dont. This game dont deserve your money. Zero balance, Bad community , few maps. Game get really boring. Every game , you will see like 6 heroes max. Everybody just playing few heroes + There is a PtP system ( as a "free player" you will get like 14 heroes. 8+ heroes are locked and you must buy pack to unlock it ( For Real money ) + Nobody playing this game . Just save your money and time

I can safely recommend dont touch this game with a 10 foot pole. The matchmaking has been broken since day one. Ive owned this game for roughly 3 years now. I used to play avidly now i play on and off with a good friend who plays all the time. My friend plays all the time because its become "their game" its what they do, do they enjoy it? No. Its like dropping 300 dollars in dota cosmetics. After you put all that time in why quit now?

The matchmaking in this game and the community itself is absolutely horrible. In no other game have i seen such a visible line the community. Either someone cares deeply about the game and is nice and interactive and fun to play with or chat. Or they are a toxic troll who will ruin your game. Whoever you get stuck with, totaly random.

The matchmaking itself is somthing ive seen no other game do and those games have been succesful for it. In awesomenauts its 3v3 when you start a match. Boom someone leaves your game. You have a bot now. "Oh like csgo so i can control it if i die." Well no you cant control it. I havent expereinced the bot AI recently but when i last had to play many-a matches with them they have the AI of a child from a turkey and a potato. Oh you just qued for a game? Lets put you in one thats already going on to replace a bot. This is awesomenauts. 9 times out of 10 you will be qued into a game that is already going on. "Who wants to start fresh from the beggining of a game? Not me." -Game Devs

If you own the game dont touch the dlc either. I bought the starstorm dlc in early acess for my friend and me wanting to help the game maybe get better. It didnt. The map they promise in the pack has come out A YEAR LATER. The heros also came out very slowly. You can critize me for buying in to early acess dlc but this is a game that had recieved quite the publicity and funding. Including the likes of the yogscast and totalbiscuit off the top of my head. You recieved maybe 3-4 heros and a map. I dont even know if the map is specific to dlc owners or dlc owners funded it. Theres a new dlc out with new heros. This game used to be great because you had a large hero pool to play from. Now its locking things behind a 10 dollar paywall.

The gameplay is alright down to its core. Its a 2d moba or Dota game. With different heros with differnet skill sets that are fairly customizeable, as you level up. Which is strange to lock undeniably better unlocks for different playstyles behind a leveling up system, which you then loose all these levels if you decide to prestige. Prestige is there idea of end game for people that have played it out enough. Personaly ive never enjoyed prestiging and loosing my progress. In COD you would loose your guns and gernades, etc and receive the basics agian. The same stands true for this and there truely are some undeniably better upgrades for heros later on.

Edit: After reading a couple other reviews i forgot about the new system. In game team levels. A concept ripped straight from heros of the storm (a horrible game doing poorly) your team shares "xp" gotten from being around creeps that are dieing, this includes heros. Well if your team starts to fall behind, this level system gives the team more damage and health. If your behind look at you, you start loosing more and more, suddenly the levels are 5 to 9. The damage and health is minimal. Say 2% more each level. But why? What is the real purpose? If its so small why add it? And it doesnt even help the team thats behind in anyway it just makes it wose. And its already challenging enough to come back as it is.

TLDR: Community bad. Matchmaking bad. Gameplay Ok/ DLC is overpriced and ruining the core game

(like most negative reviews say) the exp system was unasked for and rather than making it "easier to comeback" its harder. In fact it's near impossible. if your team kd gets to 0/3 or 0/4 then you've lost.

I still enjoy this game because of its unique twist on the moba style and it's pretty adictive, but It would be (much) better either w/o the exp system or substantial changes to it and with a bit more 'nauts balancing.

Moba in Space
If you like Retro Music, Moba Elements and Space setting well Awesomenauts is probably your thing. This game has been around for long time and has been given lot of love and support from its developers Ronimo Games (Which are pretty awesome devs btw).

Cool Stuff
  • Awesome Music
  • Awesome Characters
  • Awesome Graphics
  • Awesome Gameplay

Uncool Stuff
  • Awesomenauts is not the most balanced game really by your moba standards, but if you there for the fun it won´t bother you
  • Some connection issues have existed
  • Sometimes matchmaking isn´t doing its best job

I absolutely love the game, however... Due to the totally broken matchmaking I just can not recommend the game in the current state. The moment this issue finally gets addressed by the developers I am the first to change my recommendation to "Yes" which I really hope will happen soon as the player base seems to decline seen the increased waiting times.​

Awesomenauts is the best game that i own, i dont have many hours because i find it hard to play full matches and do schoolwork. This game is amazing. I have never disliked anything about it. Awesomenauts is a 2D 3 vs 3 battle for domination. I love being Penny Fox, she is easily the best naut. She has soooo much variety in her playstyle. You can be fast as f$#k, go all guns blazing or be a stealth ninja .Every naut has their own unique playstyles which is one of the reasons this game is so good. I could go on more about awesomenauts but i dont want to waste your time. Have a nice day

A fun and unique take on a MOBA. A platformer in which you take down turrets and bases, while destroying your opponents who get in the way. Some characters are a bit overpowered, but it's not too bad. The music and art are fantastic!

its clear from playing for only a few hundred hours this game has potential but unfortunatley the devs cannot properly balance characters proplerly , and have little idea how to implement certain skills for the characters. some characteres have loads of skill and versatility others have very little.matchmaking is a joke too, being pared with people of little skill only to find that you loose the game to find your ranking decreases to be paired with even worse people. how i got through league 3 to 2 is simply amazing but im stil being paried with people from leagues 4 and 5 who cannot hold there own as a group let alone god forbid they stray from the pack.. awful awful game. if they ever do soemthing about the yuri carry and his hoover up money bendy slowing laser with a heal and slow bubble whilst flying and laying 10plus mines everywhere that might be a start. also the stealth characters need a change as permament stealth is a game breaker, even more so when u factor in that there is no direct counter to stealth play, not a singe character or perk is available to counter stealth.

finally this is apparantly a recent change, the xp levlling system, what a joke , if your team is identical but behind in levels you will do less damage and have less health. so what do people do early on rush out and try to get kills cause they beleive that this will give them an advatage. so invariably people die a lot, feed get fed up and then leave ruining the game for everyone else. if the levelling bonus was not implemented until level 5 so that no increase to stats was available till level 5 i could understand , it might stop the intial reckles push early game as not all nauts scale the same way early on, some are very slow to build up and take time and money (in game) so a few early deaths mean that it cna be over very soon. this is apparantly wht the devs wanted to speed games up, but essentially it becomes a white wash with very few comebacks at being made if even possible.

my opinion if the developers actually want a game that plays well and is popular they might want to start looking at character versatility.
ps look at some of the older chars, raelyn has to be the weakest naut in the game now, absolutely no real abililty to counter anyone successfuly, shes a glass cannon which can be easily shut down or down right avoided, my own personal opinion is that she of all other chars needs a complete re work to the way she should be played, less damage maybe and more skills to employ, like a choice on snipe to break stealth, or a rift that goes both up and down or damage over time on succsesful hit. or hell maybe even the ablilty to clear a lane of droids like she used to be able to do but now her damage is so weak and pathetic against driods she can barely clear unles she uses rift and then she is defensless. what about a choice of penetration or a better sniping sheild, maybe a shield that only expose the back of the character, or one that is made of the same stuff as skrees turret god knows that when that is dropped it takes an eternity to destroy it single handedley

her blaster has the option for penetration but does not do so for turrets this ought to change too if its got penetration then it should do exaclty that

awful awful game avoid, unless its on offer at 90pence or something silly like that
ps the new map they have made is bloody awful too, not much right with awful nauts these days and ive only done 300 hours or so, probly wont be doing much more im glad to say

also the number of disconnects which cause your rank to decrease are all unforgivable , if they had this game with a proper server instead of peer to peer that might help but they cannot have dedicated servers apparantly

This is possibly the game I've had for the longest on Steam, bought for me by someone I rarely consider anymore, but I still play from time to time. I love the characters and art style. It's very pleasing to me and whenever I want to beat something up, I gladly boot up this game to relieve my anger in a bot match. I'd cerainly recommend this to anyone who likes platformers and MOBAs.

I don't play MOBAs, but I play Awesomnauts. Literally best thing in my life right now.

Here is my in-depth review of Awesomenauts...

Pros:
Pretty balanced gameplay in my opinion.
It has a totalbiscuit skin, buy now...
Diverse range of characters.
Has skins (that you have to buy with real money but they don't affect gameplay).
Has announcer packs (once again you have to buy with real money).
A bunch more I wouldn't care to list.

Cons:
I'm tired of writing this review.
It's not detailed.
Just read an actual review.
Just buy the dang game already.

Besides snowballing, there is one thing that sucks even more. The chance to play a game without at least one leaver is nearly zero.

Without a real punishment for leaving a game this will go on and on forever and ruins the game at lower leages.
